“Music is the universal language of mankind.” – Henry Hadsworth Longfellow

We all love our own genre of music and it all depends on what kind of mood we are in.  I used to say that I love all kinds of music except country.  However, I’m going to have to take that back since I developed my interest in country since my close college friends and cousins from Texas and Arkansas put a great deal of influence into my variety taste of music.  Therefore, I absolutely love all kinds of music. I guess that math logic makes sense right?

I minored in music where I took courses such as “Music in the Romantic era”, “World Music”, “Music of Asia and Africa” and it really broadened my ears of music and realized how powerful and universal music really is for mankind.

I play the piano, guitar, trumpet and drums.  I first started playing piano when I was 14 years old because my sister grew up playing the piano at home and I was just willing to press some keys and hear if I could do something with it.  I guess it worked out well.  I went on to play the trumpet for my high school’s jazz and concert band.  I picked up the guitar and drums by learning from other musical friends and YouTube videos.

Here is a list of artists and bands that brings music into my ears:

  • Justin Timberlake
  • Adele
  • Dionne Warwick
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Dashboard Confessional
  • Lady Gaga
  • Barry Manilow
  • Miike Snow
