Ever since I was little, I have loved music. When I was little, the first musical genre I have ever listened to was orchestra. My mother heard that famous composers – like Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven – would be a good way to stimulate my brain at a young age. And I would like to say it did. At a young age, I was ahead of my classes in school and started my upcoming academic year successful I don’t know if it was the music that helped, but I will say that when I was little, it was very soothing to the ears. In my teens, I went through a depressive state of mind. My parents were constantly arguing and I felt like I wasn’t helping. To escape my depression, I turned to music. This time it was rock. My cousin bought me an old MP4 player on my 10th birthday and before he gave it to me, he put songs from bands like, “Simple Plan”, “Green Day”, and “Blink 182″ on it. When I listened to them play their music and talk about how they weren’t treated fairly, I felt like the bands understood what I was going through and I immediately fell in love, however, it wasn’t just with rock. Over time, I started to develop more taste in music. found it interesting how there were so many unique patterns music can follow. like its own unique system that discarded all of the other rules that were made in the past and kept on making new ones. So, if I had to make anything a living, it would be playing music. Music is what changed my life. It changed my sense of being and I am better for it. Of course, for people to hear my music I would have to work hard. I would have to spend countless hours studying the mechanics behind the music and make sure I know everything I can learn about music. I would go to teachers and tutors so they can help me learn different arranges of musical instruments, and hopefully, from my music, people will find what they’ve been searching for in the end.
