And she has been playing music for a long time. Ever since she was dragged to the piano at the tender age of 6, she has been playing music, though it took her some time to fall in love with the making of it.
At 11, she picked up the viola, loving that it had a deeper sound than the violin and fewer people played it, so that meant that it needed more musicians to learn it and love it for its beautiful, unique sound. Unfortunately, she didn’t realize that violas are on a different clef from the two (clefs) she’d already had to learn from playing piano (treble and bass). She dreaded having to learn a third.
But, with perseverance, she slayed that alto clef and went on to join the orchestra in middle and high school learning not only classical music, but more contemporary tunes, like the Pirates of the Caribbean theme. A lot of inspiration has been drawn from listening to and studying the great composers of the 21st century, and she hopes to become one of them soon.
For now, she is still searching for the perfect doumbek, carved lovingly of wood, and experimenting with new sounds as she gets back to composing on the piano, writing novels, and praying that she becomes a vampire so that she can have an eternity to finish all of the things that possess her.
