“I play the piano and the trumpet, I’ve really always just had a great passion for music. I’ve never really been disciplined enough to play for a career but I heard GRCC had a good program, and I’m lucky enough to be able to take all classes I enjoy.
“Since I was a kid I would play the trumpet, and it would shape the things I did, such as friends and all of the different kinds of music I got into.
“Really, I just love music, and nothing takes me away from the real world more than my instruments. It’s amazing what they can do to a person’s life.”
