Growing up in a family of musicians, music has always been a huge part of my life. When I was about 8 years old I realized how much I loved to sing and play piano. I started out taking piano lessons from a neighbor and singing at small gigs with my uncle. Since 8th grade I have been a part of the Uptown Music Collective, participating in many gigs and major performances throughout the years while also picking up the guitar. I am now a vocal, beginner piano, and beginner guitar teacher at the Uptown Music Collective. As a recent graduate, I plan to continue music throughout my life as a songwriter and performer.
