"For those who aren't musical, trust me, get involved in music. There are a lot of different aspects to our music and arts program that you can be involved in, on stage and off. For me, music has always been a good outlet to express myself. Every step served as my inspiration to make my work that I was involved in original because I knew in this realm, I could be who I wanted to be. Even if a lot of people are involved in a project, you still have creative freedom to make it your own. I tried tech crew this year for the musical and it widened my view of how I look at the entire production. I've always been on stage, which I do miss because it's not something I haven't done before, but I found out that I really enjoyed getting involved in a different way, hanging out with peers who are different than me but also similar. I understood and appreciate more of the work that goes into making an entire production as we do for the musical and even our music concerts. I'm thankful that I got the entire viewpoint of what really goes on and why some things are the way that they are. Music is really for everyone, even for those who don't want to be seen and don't see themselves as musicians for a multitude of reasons. It's important to experience new things like I did this year to widen your horizon! I know I'm not going into music moving past high school, but being apart of the wonderful program has helped me grow. That's why I recommend it for everyone - you learn team building and life long social skills that will definitely follow you."
