When did I get involved with City Music?
I got involved in the program during my 7th grade year.
How did your experience at City Music help prepare you for 5-Week?
The experience got me ready physically and mentally. What I mean by that is that this program prepared me for the 5 week summer program by them teaching me all the skills I needed to be able to compete with the other kids across the world.
What is your favorite City Music memory/experience?
My favorite City Music experience was traveling to Memphis, Tennessee with my City Music site. It was me and seven other kids and we got to perform at the Berklee City Music Notwork Conference. I met a lot of great people and was inspired by the legends that were in attendance at this great conference.
What are your goals for the future?
My goals for me in the future are simple. I want to study music business in college and then after college work my way in the music industry hopefully working for a label as an A&R person and just working my way to the top.
