I have an extensive background with music. I picked up the trumpet when I was in 4th grade, about 14 years ago. I was heavily involved with the music program at my schools. In high school, I picked up the guitar. I have been playing that now for 8 years. My musical background ranges from classical, to blues, and jazz. I played 1st trumpet in the concert band at my school, 2nd trumpet in the jazz band, and also played guitar in the jazz band as well. I took AP Music theory and scored above-average on the AP test. I am passionate about music and I think that it opens up a whole new way of thinking for everyone, which is why I love to share my experience with people who are trying to learn more about it.
