I have been playing the violin since I was in second grade. I hope that in the future I could teach others around me to love musical instruments. I take lessons every Tuesday in Glennallen. For many years, I have been playing with the band and choir at our school. I also participate in our youth band at church. One group that inspired me to play was the Trans Siberian orchestra. They have amazing fiddlers and an incredible light show. Here is a link to watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQdTT0s5lGQ&feature=related
Recently I started to play the keyboard for our youth band at church. I took piano lessons years ago but haven’t really played much since. I really love using an electric piano because of the different instrument sounds that I can generate. I practice by looking up the songs we’re singing on Youtube, and playing along with them. Without a doubt I love music. For those of you who are playing don’t ever give up! Try you’re hardest and you will get a reward at the end. Some might not like to practice like myself. But I know that if I don’t practice -- just like playing a sport -- I will never get better. You have to commit!
