ISLA Griffiths had a big smile on her face when she finished her solo piano piece on the Brolga Theatre's stage.

The Sandy Strait State School Year 4 student had played Boogie Time without a mistake.

Watching from the crowd in the Maryborough auditorium yesterday, mum Vicki couldn't have been prouder of the nine-year-old.

This was Isla's second time entering in the Maryborough Eisteddfod's 10 Years and Under Jazz or Contemporary Piano Solo section.

 

The Hervey Bay girl was inspired to take up the piano thanks to her older sister, Grace, almost two-and-a-half years ago.

"I was very nervous beforehand but I finished without a mistake, which was my goal," Isla said.

"I think I did better this year than I did last year.

"I have piano lessons outside school and I practise for 15 minutes every day.

"I would love to keep on playing in the future."
