If I could earn a living doing what I love most it would have to be music. I don’t quite know what form or what I would be doing in the field, but it would definitely be music. I grew up with music. My mother sang in choir, my father tried singing, my grandparents blasted music every weekend morning and music was all around church. When I think of my life and my memories, there wasn’t a moment of silence, it was always filled with music. I found that no matter what I was going through, there was a song that could help me through it.
I would probably purse a career in production because I enjoy being behind the scenes too much.
I strongly believe that music can change the world. We live in a world that comprised of many different religions and cultures. That is one of the most beautiful things, however, it makes it harder for people to communicate with one another. Whether it is languages, customs, religions or lifestyles, the one thing we have in common is music. Music is used in religion, certain lifestyle practices and in everyday life and entertainment. Therefore we as people can use music to break the boundaries of language barriers and truly come together. We can begin end fighting and arguments by coming together and music brings people together. Music is the same in every language and though there are different genres, they derive from the same notes.
