Music of the Heart


At age 11, you just learned to play guitar and fell in love with music. Nothing could stop you from following your dreams as an aspiring musician. At age 18, you finally played your first show with your band and fell in love with the drummer. “I haven’t told you this, but I really do love you,” he says with his arms around you. Your heart beats louder than the sound of his drums. Only two months have passed, but you know those words will always be like music to your ears.
