By LAURA MARTIN NEW YORK, Jan. 20 (UPI) — I’ve been a lifelong student of classical music.
But when I first attended high school, it was a different story.
I was an only child with an affinity for the music of the classical era and the classical music I learned as a child was the same music I heard at home in the 1950s and 1960s, when I was a child.
In the decades since, I’ve come to love jazz, funk and pop, and I’ve heard more music in my lifetime than I can count.
I began listening to classical music in middle school and my first exposure to classical was when my mother introduced me to the violinist and composer Richard Strauss.
As a young man, I had a passion for the composer and had a dream of making it a career.
But it wasn’t until the early 2000s that I truly felt that my music was in demand, that my life had purpose and purpose and meaning, and that I had found a place in music that made me feel at home.
I never played the violin myself.
I would practice on a small violin, and when I got to college, I was thrilled to learn about classical music, but I didn’t know where to begin.
I needed a better education.
So I started my own band and went on to play on a number of prestigious college campuses and to major venues like the Royal Festival Hall in London, Carnegie Hall in Pittsburgh, Carnegie Library in New York and many more.
I became obsessed with classical music and started learning classical, but the music that appealed to me wasn’t necessarily in the classical traditions.
I was drawn to jazz and funk, the more traditional tunes.
I felt like the music had to change to be relevant to today’s young people.
I think my passion and my passion for music was a big part of my decision to pursue classical music professionally.
I wanted to become the best musician I could be.
As I became more and more involved in music, I found myself falling in love with some of the most amazing musicians in the world.
I’m grateful for my career, but it’s also been a big challenge.
It’s taken me years of hard work to reach my goals and I have to juggle juggling my work, my family and my career with the constant demands of living and caring for my wife and kids.
It’s been a lot of hard graft, and it’s been the hardest job of my life.
But I’m blessed that I’ve found a job that’s not only fun and rewarding, but also gives me a sense of belonging and purpose in my life and a sense that I’m doing something meaningful for this country.
As a result, I’m fortunate to be able to play a large part in helping people understand that their music is a universal art form that is a part of American culture and history.
I love music because it helps me express myself and express myself in the best possible way, whether that means playing a piano or writing a piece of music.
It gives me hope and a feeling of belonging, of meaning and a place for the world to know me and where I’m from.
I have to keep in mind that I have a very limited time to get the kind of career I want.
I just don’t have that many years to play the violin or write songs and I think that’s a very difficult thing for people to accept.
