WideField of Dreams - AJ Vacik

Drum roll please…introducing the one, the only, AJ Vacik! AJ is an 8th grader at Watson Junior High and an award winning drummer/percussionist. AJ not only plays on the junior high jazz band, but he is also the first 8th grader to play on the Mesa Ridge High School drum line. During the summer, AJ received a scholarship to the University of Northern Colorado Jazz Camp to learn and play with mostly high school students from across the United States. He was the only featured soloist in the large group performance at the conclusion of the weeklong event. AJ is also a rockingí student, taking all AP classes this year and doing very well. His dream is study music in college, perhaps teach music, and of course one day be in a successful band.
