Student Spotlight: Marrington Middle's Tyler Fry believes in using your passion to help others

Published Monday, November 26, 2018

Tyler Fry is an 8th-grader at Marrington Middle School of the Arts in Goose Creek. Like you would expect of any student at a school specifically for those who excel in fine arts, he's gifted.

While he can sit at the piano and easily play things it may take some years to learn, what really sets him apart are his views about music.

Tyler believes music is more than a collection of sounds that are pleasing to the ears. When you play with passion and emotion, Tyler believes you can heal the soul.

"If you are playing with emotion, you can touch other people," Tyler said in a recent BCSD Student Spotlight interview.

The interview with Tyler Fry above is one of several in the Student Spotlight series. All of the interviews can be viewed at
