My mum played the Cello when she was younger so encouraged me to pick it up at a young age. From then on, I’ve picked up more instruments and as my understanding of music has increased, so has my love for it.
Music is a way to process and express feelings and relate to others too. Every time you listen to something, you hear something new in it which is why I think music never becomes boring.
I did both Music and English Lit at A Level so writing for Frequency 21 is a perfect combo of two of my passions. I love discovering new music and making critical judgements (whether that be positive or negative) and I enjoy writing, especially for a purpose in a stylised way.
