I have never been one to ask for help. I am also not the sort of person who enjoys talking about themselves, but in this case I really need help from my friends and family.
Music and I have been in a ‘relationship’ for many, many years. We have been in love with each other since I was a young girl, and as I grew up that love continued to blossom and grow. This love affair continued with momentum until I had a very negative experience with a professor who attempted to demolish my confidence and love for music. I know, you may wonder, "Why is she mentioning this?" Well, it's due to the large impact it has had on my journey as a musician and performer.After this experience, I had a hard time believing that music was something I was meant to do, and for a while I dreaded singing or performing. …my performance anxiety had come back… and I even had a hard time keeping to my practice schedule. In need of guidance, I sought the council of Dan Bukvich. This man, my mentor, encouraged me not to give up. Warning me it would not be easy to "get back on the horse". It is a continuous effort to rebuild this in myself and my relationship with music, but it is something I strive to do every day. I am a firm believer that sometimes we must experience hardship in order to learn, grow, and appreciate the things we have.In summary, all of the hard work and dedication has paid off! In learning to overcome these obstacles, I have found a new appreciation, a new outlook for music and new opportunities… … and here is the exciting part… I RECENTLY RECEIVED THE NEWS THAT I HAD BEEN INVITED TO PERFORM IN THE HONORS PERFORMANCE SERIES IN CARNEGIE HALL!!!!!!!!!! I just about fainted when I found out, and now I am kindly asking for your help to get there to realize the dream of this extraordinary opportunity. My deep desire is to one day realize the fullness of my potential and become an artist who touches the hearts and souls of humanity through music and this could be a BIG step forward. Thank you for any help you can give to support this journey! Thanks again and God Bless!
