What does Berklee City Music mean to you and what are your goals at 5-week?

Berklee City Music is an amazing opportunity for young musicians like me to experience a quality music education. My expectations for Five-Week are to become a better musician, make a lot of friends, and get the full Berklee experience!

What is it about music that makes you want to be a musician and pursue it as a career?

Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved music. Music has always been a form of expression, and I’ve always known that I would go to school and study music. Music has always been, and will forever be my life.

Who has had the greatest influence on your life and why?

I think my mom has had the greatest influence on my life because she saw something in me when I was three, and she allowed me to pursue it. When she realized that music was my passion, she approved and let God take care of the rest.

Outside of music, what are your interests and hobbies?

Outside of music I love to hang out with friends, just like any other person. But I really love to study comedy, and the different styles of comedians.
