Story

I would like to try a casual online jam, with someone that plays guitar or keyboard/piano and would sing with me or as a duet. I am kind of new to the jam scene. So I'm looking to try it out. I added my sound cloud link. I'm a work in progress still. (My teacher is the playing piano, its not me unfortunately) http://soundcloud.com/captivity-dreamer

What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is my peaceful place. Every music lesson is like Christmas, an unopened gift. I am grateful to see people singing and playing music, it doesn't matter what their ability is, it's the doing and not missing out on the beauty because they are uncertain about being judged or worried if they are good enough. Many never take the chance to have beautiful music moments because of self doubt. I was one of them in the past. Music makes me happy, and I love it when someone plays or sings for me. Don't miss out on the beautiful moments :)

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

If we are talking about music then I would teach them to believe in themselves and teach them about how they hear their own voice when they sing, so that they never stop singing. The way we hear our own voice is different than what is on the outside because of the vibration of the bones in our head and fluid in our ears, etc. Many people miss out on the joy because they don't like the sound of their voice, there are many articles to read if one was to google "why I don't like the sound of my voice." Also people do recordings on their cell phones and the recordings are not a true reflection of the sound, often overtones, etc, are lost, so you can't judge your voice by that. I would also encourage people that are worried about doing music because they think they have to be born musically inclined, and then they never take a chance and they miss out. Much of it is muscle memory, and learning to let go. Never sell yourself short and miss out on the journey. It's a tough inside game but its worth all the beauty :)

What inspires you to make music?

Peacefulness, fun, beautiful sounds and doing music together. I love to write and I love learning guitar and vocal lessons.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Probably to show people that we are never alone. I would like to make music because it can touch the hearts of those that are untouchable in their deepest moments of need.
