In the midst of all my free time this year, I decided to pick up piano in mid-October. Music has always been one of my biggest passions. This extends from everything from listening to iTunes at my desk, live concerts, and simply enjoying the very sounds of nature. Over New Years Eve, I went down to Memphis and saw some of the most talented musicians I’ve ever had the priviledge to witness. The raw energy and emotion that just flows from it is very entrancing.
Which is why I was ecstatic to hear I would finally have my first taste at a live performance. My friend Marc raps and has been working on a mix tape. He invited me to play keyboard for him at one of his up and coming concerts (which was last night). I was feeling mixed emotions of nervousness and excitement, more so on the later. The feeling was indescribable, it’s actually pretty hard for me to write this blog post because I don’t even really know how to describe the thoughts that were raging through my head. In any case, we have our next concerts coming up February 11th and then the 26th. I cannot help but look back and feel satisfied at the progress I’ve made since October.
