As a little girl, I was lucky to be surrounded by music. I started dance classes when I was 5, and in middle school I started playing instruments. Still to this day I feel like music is my life’s soundtrack. Hearing “Can’t Touch This” (by none other than MC Hammer), takes me right back to being 8 and doing my tap dance. In the same way, listening to a symphony has me aching to pick up an instrument and start again. Now that I have a lil one, I’ve encouraged him to find a love of music, and to use it to express himself.
