If I cold earn a living doing what I love most, I would teach others how to read music. Music is a passion that I have learned to love due to the trials that I went through. When I first started, I was well behind the other students. Even three years after starting, I was still behind on my music reading and playing. It was when I finally decided that the only person that would help me learn was myself. I then spent a great deal of time learning how to read and play as well. After two years, I finally got to the point where I passed the others.

But I have decided then to help others who were just like me. Every year up until I graduated from high school, I would evaluate the new band member’s playing abilities so that I may know how to help them. It was my greatest passion to help those who were struggling since I too was in their shoes, the difference was that I was the only person who was willing to help me. I don’t know how it would help change the world, but I know that it would help change the lives of those who I would teach. Being in the shoes of those who struggled in music, I knew how hard it was to play and then get looked down on because your ability was not to others expectations. I enjoyed getting those who struggled up to speed so that they were no longer learners, but people who were competent in music.
