Here is my first youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5KKowzK42s..let me know what you think..I will be posting one of my brother soon..they're both singing ones..I have 6 videos up so far and I hope to put more up.. my name on there is:
I am the youngest of 5 and I have 1 sister and 3 brothers. I am quieter & I LOVE both playing & listening to music.Period.
"Music can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable. -Leonard Bernstein
I've been playing the Piano for nine yrs.(4 yrs of lessons) In August of 2011 it'll be 10 years and one more year of Piano lessons.. I 've developed an ear for music and I suprise people when I just sit down and play a song out of relatively nowhere. I truly believe that it is a gift from God because it's nothing that I have done.Quite honestly, I can usually play whatever I hear.I Iove to sing as well, especially with my bro.Josh & sister. I am taking voice lessons & more Piano as well . I am praying about going to college for Music and perhaps something else in 2011. I am a high Mezzo-Soprano, what fun,um..yeah.I enjoy listening to Opera with my bro. and I am working on a few songs, perhaps ones in Italian..I play and sing often for my church.. I am also getting used to the idea of having my talents very much in demand, but thankfully I don't seem to have a problem performing in front of people anymore..There's no getting away from the fact that Music is in my blood. Both of my Grandmothers had/have good voices.One sang for church/weddings etc. and the other sang with her sister on the radio.It seems only 3 out of 5 of us have inherited that being:My sister, myself, and my brother.Yes, I sing all of the time and there isn't a time when I'm not listening to music.

To this I cleave, and herein do I find rest." - John Selden
