Started studying music a little over a year to complement film projects, since music is the other half of a film. Guitar, piano, drums, voice, etc. In theory, my music studies were to be able to communicate with composers in their language, but that changed. Now, I look forward to start composing music/songs. *Maybe even be part of a boy-band??
