Brian La


Hi! I'm Brian La and I'll be your co-president of Tri-m/Forte this year! I play the viola and I'll be spending my final year at Homestead in Orchestra. I've been playing the viola for the past 6 years. In my free time, I like to solve Rubiks Cubes/puzzles, play tetris, and read manga. Hope to have a great year with everyone!


Kiarra Ning


Hi! My name is Kiarra Ning, and I'm so excited to be your Co-President this year! I play viola in the Homestead Chamber Orchestra and the Senior Symphony in GSYO, and tenor saxophone in jazz ensemble. I love doing archery and playing badminton in my free time, crafting, and enjoying the outback of Australia.


Erin Su

Vice President External

Hi guys! I'm Erin, and I am so excited to be part of Tri-M as a senior this year. I've been playing piano for the past 13 years. I played in Jazz Ensemble during freshman year, and since sophomore year I've been the accompanist for Homestead's choirs. When I'm not practicing or teaching piano, I like to listen to music, find new boba places, and go on walks with my dog. On the weekends, I love going on picnics and watching the sunset with my friends. I also created a blog for my piano students (check it out here!). I love to meet new people, so feel free to come say hi! <3

I am thrilled to be a student leader in marching band, principal flutist of wind 1, and join the California Youth Symphony Senior Orchestra! I am also the Associate Director of Notelove, a non-profit organization that provides free music lessons to students in the Bay Area. When I’m not practicing or volunteering, I enjoy watching Survivor (feel free to talk w/ me about any season or player!), playing with my dog, baking, and running. Let me know if you have any questions about Tri-M, Notelove, music or volunteering!
