Music is a magical thing. Through my 20s I was fortunate enough to play drums in a Toronto band with three of my best friends in the whole world. When we started we play to a handful of friends that we had to beg to come and see us, when I eventually left the band we were playing some of the larger venues in the city and had opening gigs for The Killers and Editors.
Music transcends languages and barriers, and it can alter our moods for the better. I am so grateful for music and what it can do to and for us, and I get choked up when I see how it lights up the faces of children like mine.
