Music has been a big part of my life ever since I can remember. I got a little drum set at the age of 2, my first guitar for my sixth birthday, and started playing upright bass in the school orchestra in the fourth grade. I continue with the upright bass in high school to this day. There isn’t a day that goes by in my life where music doesn’t play some role, whether it’s listening to someone else or writing and recording my own material.

Music affects every nationality, every race. Even deaf people are moved by music through the vibrations they can feel. Music is too good to just let it go to waste. Future generations shouldn’t let it die off, and one way to prevent this is to keep it in our schools. Whether it is orchestra, band, choir, jazz band, or guitar, it’s a way to bring people together through a common thread.

Music is just a way of life.
