In the past 15 years, I am 100 percent self taught, so my music is limited to my imagination. Have some experience recording, but I am learning how to be more efficient. Looking for people to jam with, learn with, experience performing again, as it's been a while.
My background in music is varying, to many degrees, paralleling music itself. Growing up in New York, I was engulfed in a myriad of music that is the life of the City. From falling in love with street performers, to enjoying countless broadway shows with my family. Music was on my mind 24/7. In around 1998, around 12 years old, I was fortunate enough to attend the Young People's Chorus of New York CIty. With internationally renowned, and respected composer, Francisco J. Nunez. Who later, after doing several in depth auditions, granted me the opportunity to sing at the White House of the United States of America. As well as with my school, United Nations International School. We attended the Kennedy Center Presents, for Shirely Temple, and sang one of her most iconic songs to her on stage. About 8 years ago I picked up a guitar after falling in love with rock band. Self taught, just started taking classes online at berklee school for music. I work from home so I spent hours a day playing.
