Music in my life

From the time I was old enough to hold my recorder, and reach the keys on my keyboard, music has played a very important role in my life.

When I was a child, I always played some type of instrument, and my parents always taught me to practice and enjoy while practicing. In many ways music has pushed me through life; it’s lifted me above the routine of everyday school and social life. With the amount of stress I get from school and managing good grades, music has taken that stress away and helped me push myself to do better. I have been bullied since the first grade and there were times where I felt I had hit rock bottom, but because of music, I became stronger and more confident in myself.

Music has inspired people with hope and soothed them in times of heartbreak and sadness. It touches our hearts and affects us in ways that we find difficult to explain. Its one of the only things that we feel can understand us and can lead us to moments where we seem to touch the infinite. Music brings us exuberance and a sense of serenity. Music has played one of the biggest roles in my life, and I could not imagine life without it.
