We Asked: What kind of artist would you like to be and why?
I have been a novice jazz musician for the past six years. Yes, that’s including middle school band, but being able to perform my first solo at the end of my sixth grade year truly opened a door to musical expression that I’d never been able to see before. To be a saxophone jazz/funk artist would definitely be my path of choice. This past summer, I actually received a scholarship to go to Berklee College of Music for just that, and I loved every waking moment. It was a five-week jazz, funk and pop-themed camp with theory classes and electives. To say that I’m paid to play and express myself through music would be a dream come true.
