Maddie Arnold

Hi! My name is Madelyn Arnold, but my friends and family usually call me Maddie or Mads. I am currently in 5th grade and attend Liberty Christian Academy close to my home in Pickerington, Ohio. I have been playing the piano since I was 7, but my passion is singing. My love of music and singing probably goes back to when I was 4 years old when my dad would play the guitar and I would sing with him, but it was my piano instructor that really ignited my passion for singing. A couple of years ago, I had difficulty with the timing of a song during my piano lesson. My instructor suggested I sing while playing to help get the timing right and we ended up singing the rest of the lesson. After that she encouraged me to consider voice lessons in addition to my piano lessons, and the rest is history. Now, I can't believe I get to be part of this year's Celebration of Music program!

In addition to singing and playing the piano, I love cooking with my mom and dad, swimming, and running cross country for my middle school. I also enjoy acting. I have had the chance to be on stage as "Toto" in Magic Tree House, "Sally" in Charlie Brown Christmas, and "Molly" in Annie. I have a little brother, Liam, who is 8 and loves learning all of my speaking parts and songs. This can be a little annoying, but singing and acting must be in our blood. I am so excited and grateful to have this opportunity, and I appreciate all of your support.
