Music has always been a huge part of my life. When I was in high school, I participated in the various forms of band, such as marching band and concert band, where I played the alto saxophone. When my parents bought me my first keyboard to experiment with, I began to come up with my first compositions. I began composing mostly classical, symphony music. When I began to feel comfortable with the music that I was composing, I slowly stretched my legs into other genres. When my parents became aware of the music I was making, and began to see how serious I was about composing, they gave me a new keyboard to further improve the skills that I was acquiring. As a neophyte composer, I began composing not only classical music, but in other genres as well. Since I was just learning the tricks of the trade, I was not nearly as adept at composing in other genres as I had been with classical. When I began to discover new ways to compose on GarageBand, my music became much more refined. Since then, my attempts with classical music have been dormant and I have been busy exploring the various aspects of other genres. I am now beginning to find my own footing in the world of music. I am in no way a master of what I do, but I strive to become a better composer with each note that flows from my fingertips.
