It’s never easy to write about oneself. To make it easier on me I will use bullet points.

I started playing instruments in 6th grade. I started with playing the flute and I played it throughout middle school. In high school I learned how to play percussion which included the Piano. I don’t play the piano like a pro though. Give me some sheet music and some time and I’ll be able to play. I took Music Theory AP my sophomore year but didn’t pass the test because I fell asleep.
My first production was The Wizard of Oz in 5th grade. I was not in another production till second semester of my sophomore year. I was in the Musical “Hello, Dolly!”.
