GUEST POST: ROSE'S STORY
I was fortunate to grow up in a household of musicians and vocalists. Both grandmothers were gifted in piano playing and singing. My father is a drummer and lead singer of a Chicago Tribute Band and my mother is a singer as well. Music is certainly a part of me.
I grew up singing to any song on the radio, parents' cassette tapes and was constantly rotating Music Television (MTV) and Country Music Television (CMT). I favored any opportunity provided at school to learn and play music.
I believe that music is its own caliber. To have an intangible element capable of moving a person in such away that it brings forth emotion, inspiration, change, and therapy is something to be valued and sustained. Music poured positive things into my life and in return, I was able to pour out those same qualities. It took care of everything that education could not. Music was an outlet to exercise other gifts within me and those same gifts have taken me further than I could have ever imagined. Without music, my growth and creativity would be drastically different. I can only imagine the life change that it has on our children today.
The good news is, music is universal. Although it's purpose holds more weight than we can comprehend, it is invincible - and nobody can take it away from us!
