What Music Has Done For Me
In 6th grade, I was given a trumpet. I instantly fell in love. Through playing music, I have been awarded scholarships that allowed me to attend a prestigious university. I have been able to play at venues such as the Granada Theatre in Santa Barbara, the Vibrato Jazz Club in Bel Air, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, and countless stadiums across the country. Music has opened numerous doors for me, challenged me to be a better person, and has allowed me to cultivate and grow impactful and lasting relationships.
