Love of Music
By Traci Orr
If I could earn a living doing what I love the most, it would be teaching people with disabilities how to play music so they may find happiness. Playing music brings joy to the musicians as they are learning, practicing and performing their instruments. I would focus on people with disabilities. I am going to graduate school presently to become a rehabilitation counselor and I feel teaching music is a wonderful way to help people find themselves even though they may have a disability from birth or aquired. I have been learning to play my cello for many years but have not been able to put in the practice time because I have suffered from writer’s cramp. My fingers stick and can be extremely painful at times. I have not given up hope and continue to pluck away slowly at my knowledge of playing the cello. My goals are to continue to learn my instrument, find people who have disabilities and are interested in playing and instrument in a group, begin a small program with some select musicians, help the program grow. The world is a better place if everyone can learn how to play an instrument of their choice. My goal is to being a program for people with disabilities to learn how to play music. People who live with disabilities would find much happiness learning to play instruments and playing in a group. My goal is to get this program started!
