Oneofthegreatest influences inmy life ismusic. I love awide variety of music, including classic rock, alternative rock, funk, disco, jazz, electronic

favorite songs on YouTube and guitar tabs on UltimateGuitar.com. Although I never fully grasped the structure and theories behind themusic (such as all the major and minor chord, common chord progressions, the key I was playing in, etc.), I did learn to play a majority of the songs created by my favorite artists. I then created a list of all the songs I had learned to play and watched the list grow. Within a couple of months, I had filled up an entire sheet of paper front-to-back with double columns, adding up to over 100 songs on my list, and I was still itching to learn more. Fast forward a few years, and the first Rock Band video game had just come out. I quickly took a liking to playing the electrical drum set, and that next Christmas I got an actual drumset and began learning to play. Just like I did with the guitar, I began looking up drum tutorials on YouTube so that I could learn to play along to all of my favorite songs. I continued toplay guitar anddrums throughoutmy high school and college years, andmost recently, I participated in the PT band during my time in graduate school. I played guitar for “The Kings of Gangleon” and played drums for “The Red Hot Chili Stretchers.” Performing on stage in front a real audience was definitely more exciting than when I played in front of the virtual crowds on the Guitar Hero videogames, and I got a lot of positive feedback from my friends and classmates on the quality of our band’s performances. Although I am no longer participating in the PT band, I still love to play both guitar and drums in my free time, and I try to set up jam sessions whenever possible with my friends. Music will always remain a huge influence inmy life, and I hope to havemanymore great experiences in the musical world.

dance music, rap, and blues. Amongst my favorite artists are The ArcticMonkeys, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Cage the Elephant, Queen, The Bee Gees, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Killers, Griz, Anderson .Paak, MartinGarrix, and many more. The only real genre of music that I never got into is country music. Sorry to all the country fans out there. My interest inmusic started when I was 11 years old. Growing up, I was primarily an outdoor kid. I preferred toplay in the back yard and run around the neighborhoodwithmy friends rather than sit around andwatch TV or listen to the radio. Then one day, I walked across my neighborhood to my friend’s house, and he introducedme to the new Guitar Hero video game. He showed me how to play the game and I caught on quickly. Before I knew it, I was shredding guitar solos on the plastic guitar controller in my living room, and I had crowds of thousands cheeringme on. Word of my greatness spread across the country, and I am pretty sure I was inducted into the (virtual) Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at just 11 years old. Although playing this game taught me no real-life musical skills, it did get my interested in learning to play the actual guitar. Something that peoplemay not know about me is that I’m a self-taught musician. I love to play the guitar and drums, and I have been playing for about ten years now. I taught myself how to play the guitar primarily by searching for my
