Music is such an important part of life. For many of us we remember specific memories when we hear a certain piece, or if a certain type of song comes on the radio it can affect our mood. For example a sad song might make us upset, or an upbeat song can make us smile and be happy.
It is because of my love for music and the power of a good song that I decided to take up an instrument. After all, how much more powerful would it be if I was playing the music myself?
So with support from ubu I looked into the most suitable and fun instrument; deciding on a guitar. I then looked into getting a tutor and was supported to find a local teacher who would be the most beneficial to me.
I have been learning for 7 months now and am truly loving it. Being able to pick up and play different songs is a thrilling feeling and I’ve been playing for my friends and ubu staff in between lessons so that I am always well-rehearsed.
I hope to continue this good work and expand my repertoire. Plenty of people think Leeds rocks! Well thanks to me and my guitar that statement has never been more true!
