Music in Common has had such a tremendous impact on my life. I no longer see music as just something to help me through life. I see it as a tool to break down barriers and stigmas and the things we’ve put up to avoid seeing each other. Music for me is now a way to bring people together that I thought would never talk to each other.
This experience has truly been one I’ll never forget. I’ve made lifelong friends and I’ve gained so much self confidence. I’ve seen first hand that if you work together with people that you can really achieve anything.
Music In Common is really not like any program I’ve ever done. Going in I didn’t know what to expect and I also didn’t expect it to shape my perspective on life and my perspective on music as much as it did. It teaches life skills. I teaches you how to care. It teaches you how to love people, how to see people… how to really see people instead of seeing them for the stereotypes that they’ve been put under.
If everyone in the world experienced Music In Common I think it would be such a peaceful coexistence. I am really happy that I’ve had the chance to participate because it’s really changed my life.
