I have been playing guitar for almost seven years, and I fell in love with music the first time I heard a note. It was amazing to me how every part, seemingly insignificant on its own, came together and magically formed a beautiful form of art. Maybe it’s because I had an amazing teacher who was my friend, my motivator, and basically my musical idol at the time. Or maybe I just became lucky when I entered the world, lucky enough to have my appreciation for music.

Music was my life, and it terrified me to think that I might never get better. I have since passed that point, considering it was a good three years ago. I recently joined a band at my music school, which is amazing for any musician to experience, no matter how passionate you are. You meet new people, improve your skill, maybe learn something new about yourself.
