Amazing, to me, is how music can take you
Places imaginations would go.
Whatever the theme, it begins with a dream
Its boundaries and limits not known.
Rather inspiring, to me, to hear
Those varying, contrasting styles ~
From opera to jazz, heroic and free,
Concertos to breakdowns to swing.
Not long ago, I heard a musician,
Jazz violin he played.
The solos, I just knew, he felt inside
He incorporated on those strings his own way.
I, as a musician, aspire to perform,
To give audiences a grasp for more.
To draw them in with every intricate pattern
And every strategically placed chord.
I would be wholly, totally humbled,
And honored to say in the least.
This scholarship would make my dream possible
To pursue a music performance degree.
