music mondays

i love music.  i grew up surrounded by it.  as a toddler, my parents led music and drama teams that traveled the world…i got to visit places like india and holland before i was even out of diapers.  when we settled in at home, my mom taught piano lessons and us girls quickly followed suit, picking up instruments from the ukelele to the saxophone.  we grew up listening to gospel on the record player and watching all the classic musicals, even getting to act in a few once i hit high school.

all that to say, i didn’t have much of a chance NOT to love music.  and though i never lived out my secret ambition of playing in a band, i am still so inspired by those who write and create and bring the rest of us along with them on their musical journey.

my photography is also hugely inspired by music, so i thought i’d start a little weekly “segment” where i can share some music that i love in the hopes that it inspires you too!

to kick it off, i thought there was no better way to begin a monday than with a peppy little tune by this fellow i was first introduced to through a project he did with the st. james music academy.

enjoy!

now it’s your turn – what inspires you?

    This is a great feature! Plus, I learned things about you in that post I didn’t know. Guess I’ve found a fellow high school musical-er. Ha.
