Music has been around for centuries slowly evolving and breaking new ground. Whether it is a singer or a musician, music has affected millions in a positive manner.
Here are some testaments from individuals who speak on how they became interested in music lives and some of them might just surprise you.
Female singer, 36
“When I was 14, I started with the piano. I had always been fascinated by pianos. When I was studying in England, they do teach music there, and we could play pianos and keyboards, and I came back and asked to be put in class.”
Male cellist, 20
“It really isn’t a great reason in high school, we needed to choose an instrument… it was a concert to listen to the instruments and I loved the cello. But with more and more time I loved it more and more and with time I played more seriously and played at Symphony Hall and had gone on tours… and it’s how I find my best friends… Then I think the trip is better… in the beginning I did not want to touch it but it was one of the best decisions I have chosen in the end.”
“Well, actually my first experience with classical music I hardly remember… In a school room there was a piano lying there, and sometimes, when we changed classes, when we passed by, I was curious to play a key. Years later, my mother bought me the fantastic ‘Casio PT-87’ that I still have: a tiny keyboard with recorded musical bases and by means of LEDs I indicated the keys that you had to play. That toy that any child would get bored of in a short time was the beginning, I didn’t get bored, I got hooked.”
