One of the few things I am proficient at and enjoy is composing and performing music. That would be my ideal job in the future. When I played on a grand piano in the lobby of the Center for Advanced Medicine at Barnes-Jewish Hospital to practice, numerous people have told me that I play beautifully and wonderfully to the point where it moved them. Though I was intentionally playing softly to not deafen anyone’s ears, I received the compliments as humbly as I could. The fact that I could inadvertently cheer up somebody’s day always ironically cheered me up.
In order to accomplish this I plan on taking music composition and theory to expand my knowledge of how music works and how to compose it. I can only get so far with the skills I have now so I would need a great deal more of training and expertise to develop my music I write more efficiently. The ultimate goal of my music would be to move people, to make them forget about all their problems even if it’s just temporarily.
While obtaining all of my musical education and training, I plan to play at functions and events. I could also sell my music pieces online or on CD’s. By the time I get out of college, hopefully I’ll have the right connections and know all the right propel to help make my dream a reality.
Most importantly though, I will seek to stay humble and meek above all else I do.
