Milestones

My road in life has taken me all over.
I started playing guitar when I was 7.
By the time I entered middle school I joined choir to help with my singing. Note: I never sang before.
I loved choir so much I stayed with it - my favorite class in high school.
People started showing interest in my guitar playing.
I played for several bands trying to find the right one.
I was soon discovered by an out-of-town band trying to get a record label who offered me a spot.
I tried it but I turned them down after a while.
I decided to complete high school and continue my road, and maybe start my own band one day.
Keep following my journey

Wake up, warm up vocals, and always practice a new chord on my guitar. Meet with the band and rehearse. Write music and have fun with my friends in the band and who help out.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

I recommend you have fun everyday in high school.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Have fun in school with your friends and do good. Sure you will be leaving somewhere right after high school but do good. It's very important and cherish every moment with your friends. The hardest thing to do is leave and once you leave you wont see them for a really long time.
