730 words - 3 pages

Life is a musical performance; it presents us with crescendos and decrescendos. It can sometimes be allegro, yet life can also become pesante; just like a musical performance?life will never be perfect but will be beautiful in its glory. One has to stay with the beat or else will be left behind, and once the music is over that one unique performance will be impossible to replace! An opportunity presented to me is music.

Knowing that I belonged and that I was actually good at performing was the greatest high I?ve ever known. These experiences helped me come out of my shell and made me realize that Music is my life and it is what I want to do for as long as I?m on this earth. I can still remember my first performance as a soloist; it was the Christmas concert of December 2001. Susana Garcia was just about to be done with her performance and at that moment I said to myself,...
