Music is such a large part of my life. When I was in middle school, I started playing the clarinet, and have not stopped playing since. When I was freshmen in high school, I started playing my instrument at church and later I began conducting the church choir. I was a music minister at my church from 2007 to 2012 (last July). I love music. It gets me through the hard times and makes me dance during the good times. As one of my favorite band directors once said, “you are either singing or you are dancing.” Music makes us sing and it makes us dance. I could not live without it and I wouldn’t want to live without it. Silence would be harder to endure than death itself. On this page, I want to share some of my favorite music, mostly classical, with you all. So, here we go!
