I started playing piano when I was 6 years old.  The first instrument I got to play on was actually an accordion.  I started out playing by ear, but learned to read music while taking trumpet lessons at age 10.  I slowly expanded to playing trumpet, guitar, bass guitar, drums, and some harmonica.  And yes, I still occasionally play accordion!! I have been a member of several bands, and enjoy playing many styles of music including Jazz, Rock, Classical, Contemporary Christian Music, Country, and Konpa.  I relate to a song by Arash which states: “Music is my language!!”
