I knew I wanted to play
I love music and art. Those are two things I absolutely love to do. In second grade I figured out that I loved the instrument, the violin. People from a band came to school and brought a bunch of different instruments and let us play with them. As soon as I touched the violin, I knew I wanted to play it. I had to wait until fifth grade, then I was able to take Strings, and I haven’t stopped playing since. I’m hoping that I’m able to take orchestra as an elective, to continue doing that, because I really love it.
For me, music helps me a lot with memorizing. I’m not usually good at memorizing dates or stories, so I memorize songs that contain the information that I need. That’s how I remember things.
