I knew from a young age that I had musical genes: My mother was an actress in many movies and musicals, and she had a voice that was heard in Camden Yards at Oriole Park many times.
The kickoff to my musical career was playing the cello, which I did from third to ninth grade. I loved the mellow and soothing sound of the bow against the long cello strings, and I had amazing instructors along the way that made me love the instrument even more.
In fifth grade, I had a one and done year playing the trombone, which is such a peculiar but entertaining instrument. I discovered how many sounds a trombone could make, and I would always fool around with it just to see what I could do. I performed in the jazz band, mostly, and I had a badass solo that I remember to this day (sorry for the language).
I also had some years scattered around where I performed in the chorus. I do enjoy to sing, but I think I thought I was better than I actually was, proven by my solo at the eighth grade graduation where I performed a high-pitched solo for "Fix You" by Coldplay.
And now I find myself here, in Music Tech, using my musical experiences to create my own music from an infinite amount of sounds and patterns: What more could a musician ask for?
