I remember day one. I walked into the band room at my middle school. I then saw the excitement in my fellow student’s eyes as we opened the cases and got our instruments out for the first time. This was the starting point of my biggest passion in my life, music. Music has helped and shaped me in many ways, such as learning responsibility, teamwork, making friends and gave me a sense of belonging. That is what I want to do with my life, teach my passion to others. My high school band director really helped us students and really showed his passion of music in a way i didn’t think was possible. He would come early or stay late in order to help us students when it was needed. He gave us music that challenged us, and also gave us leadership positions throughout the band to help us grow. I plan to finish my Bachelor’s in Music Education, then teach music at a school. I plan to teach in such a way that it inspires my students and helps them learn life lessons like I have.
