Why did you begin studying music?
I had a crush on a girl in 6th grade she said she liked music so I joined the middle school beginning band, at the time I didn’t even know what a band was. My teacher began showing all the instruments available for us to play and something drew me to the saxophone. I have not stopped since and it has become my life, don’t remember what happened to the girl though.
