As I've said in my past couple of blogs, I have been meeting new beautiful people. High school is such a great place to meet people with amazing gifts. Including people with the same passion of music as me. Meeting these people have opened my eyes to a whole new genre of music and way of expressing music in such a unique and different style. One of my good friends listens to music all the time, they absolutely can't get enough of it. Another is drawn towards theater arts and more musical types of music. While another is just starting their music path and just getting a feel for it. It's amazing to see the different paths that everyone is on in their music career. They all have a similar dream, but also have completely different ways of getting there. What I find so great about these friendships that I've made, is that we can share what we’re listening to, or what we’re are focusing on right now. They can also bring inspiration and collaboration. Working with other people, that love the things you do, really opens your eyes to seeing the gifts each one of us was individually given.
Music is an amazing thing. I hope I don't have to be the one to tell you that. It brings people together in the most amazing way. Just one song that expresses your emotions, might be the same song getting another person through their day. Music shares emotions and feeling that can be shared and interpreted in many ways, depending on what person listens to it and how far into their journey they are. Also getting to know a person’s music style might tell them about their character, about their likes or dislikes, and most of all their emotions. Know, I'm not saying that everyone expresses their emotions through song. I'm just telling you what I've seen from my friends and my own person music choices. You can learn a lot about me through my music, specifically what mood I'm in.
All in all music, I think brings people together in such an amazing way. Music is pain and beauty and peace. And most important music is love and a bond of hopes that people may find similar to another.
