One day, I was singing in the car. My mom thought I sounded good so she booked me a lesson with a singing teacher. I started singing lessons three years ago. I like writing songs and creating my own music.
Singing on the radio studio was amazing. I felt I was one step closer to being a professional musician and having a song play on the radio.
I love home learning because I have more time to sing. If I have an idea, I can just write it down. I never have to wait. My teacher is in Toronto and I can do my singing lessons and singing practice during the day and still do all my sports in the evenings. I don’t think I would be able to do all the activities I love without home learning.
I don’t have any social media or songs on Youtube. My music is on my teacher’s Sound Cloud account. Her name is Janel Rae Filipiak. She is also a professional musician and actor.
Here is my recording on the radio:
