Ava Rhine

Rockwood Summit High School

Ava is a self-taught (with the help of YouTube videos) multi-instrumentalist. Her specific performance style is called guitar lap tapping which creates harmonic sounds for the melody, rhythm, harmony, bass and percussion. This is the first song she’s played using this style. Ava has also been playing the ukulele for 10 years, guitar for five years, and violin since 3rd grade. She plans to attend a university in Colorado to study music business and will continue to post her music to her YouTube channel.
