It was 5th grade and music class was fun. But I'm not all about singing and playing xylophones twice a week all year. So how can I get out of performances?
My music teacher would teach us a full song to sing and play and after a few weeks of practice, we would do a final performance and he would film it. I wanted to film it.
So one day before one of our performances, I was like "Hey could I film it? I film my brother all the time and I enjoy it." And the next thing he said I could not believe. "Sure!" And just like that I filmed the performance.
You best believe I asked each time we had to perform the final version of the song if I could film. I received a yes every time! This was huge. I was doing something I enjoyed more and got more experience with cameras that would later on help me.
Everything happens for a reason. I filmed music performances in 5th grade and now I film music videos. Who would've known?
