We are all busy. We live in a time where we are overscheduled, overworked, and at times overwhelmed. This often means that we must make decisions and sacrifices in order to fulfill some of our responsibilities. It became very apparent to me that music would be my release of all the stress that life can bring. It began with simply listening to music. Certain genres on certain days for certain emotions. Once I became a practicing musician, I found the personal expression an exhilerating experience. While taking lessons my instructor kept pushing me further and working with me to make sure that music became more than something that I do, but who I am. It is far to easy to get lost in the shuffle of everyday life and lose focus on what you want from life. I urge you to please never forget what you want. Music is more than notes on a paper, or a grade in school. Music is life.
