Winston, Kid Composer

Winston Schneider is a typical fifth grader who likes insects, Legos, and Star Wars. Winston is also an award-winning classical composer who recently won the National Association for Music Education's Student Composers Competition for his piece “Scherzo of the Feather Stars.” Winston says his compositions are inspired by insects and chemistry.
