Amy Faust chats with Heaven Fay Scroggins, a pianist, viola player and composer who’s in the seventh grade. In the second grade, Heaven Fay was introduced to classical music by Bravo Orchestras when they came to her elementary school, Rosa Parks in North Portland. After several years playing the viola, her perfect attendance earned her a slot with Play It Forward, a program that provides pianos and tuition-free lessons to students. The founder of the program, pianist Michael Allen Harrison, is Heaven Fay’s teacher, mentor and now family friend.

Heaven Fay’s composition “H9” is now in the Bravo curriculum, and she intends to keep composing and performing music, even possibly writing a children’s book someday about her musical experiences.
