If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would be teaching my favorite past time, music, to children around the world. Although it may not seem ‘world changing,’ a love and expression of music can hold a huge impact on those who come in contact with it. The world changing aspect really falls into place among the learning and teaching that every musician must struggle through to find a place in the world, and the road of self-discovery that each and every person stumbles along can be made an easier journey with the self- expression that is music. In every culture on the planet, some form of music plays a key role in the development of the children, but stresses from difficult times make it a lower and lower priority. Children need the beauty and intricacy of music in their lives to stimulate mental and social growth; it is a necessity and cannot be overlooked in struggling cultures. Teaching a variety of diverse music provides ample growing ground for children to develop strong minds and social skills, of which is vital to their success and happiness in the world. My first goal is to major in Music Education, coupled with a year of studying abroad, to learn the skills necessary to interact with many diverse people. My second goal is to intern with Music Unites, a New York based nonprofit charity, supporting and upholding music education around the world. From there, there is no limit.
