Not many people know that in addition to my passion for photography, I have a passion for music. It was put on the back burner as I pursued my education and focused on my formal photography education. I began my true passion for music in 6th grade, when I joined my middle school’s choir program. I was in the class for a semester, just long enough to master reading music. I quit and began taking piano lessons outside of school. Having learned to read the treble and bass clefs, I was further along than my teacher expected. I zoomed through the workbooks, even though I HATED practicing. During this time, I picked up the guitar and began teaching myself. In 7th grade, I joined my middle school orchestra and played the violin. The teacher, at that time, felt that with my small figure and small hands, it would be the best suited instrument for me. My muscular dystrophy began to affect me that year and it became increasingly difficult for me to hold the violin in the professional position, plus I didn’t much care for the high notes. I switched to cello in 8th grade with a reluctant teacher. My instructor thenwas a cellist himself and felt that my hands were too small But, not, did I show him. I continued playing cello until I decided to move to Commerce, Tx to increase my study hours. My parents were making my room into a guest room so they needed more space. I sold my piano and donated my cello and violin
