Over the past six months of being stuck inside of my house, listening to music has taken over the majority of my day. I use it to pass time whenever I'm bored or anxiously awaiting a certain event to happen. This is my 6th year in my school's band program and because of such is also my 6th year playing the Alto Saxophone. Many times I've tried branching out into other fields/ instruments and I've never really fully committed due to financial concerns. This summer I was able to get my first job at a local snowball stand, (pictured on the cover), and saved up enough money for a down payment on my first car. I pay for my own car note and insurance and also my other hobby that I've had for years of martial arts. All of my paycheck goes into these things and because of so I have no side money to spend trying to further myself or explore any of my personal interests or possible hobbies. The past two months I've spent considering audio engineering and mixing. Music production speaks to me in a way that very very few things ever have before. This time I want to take charge and try to commit to a hobby more than just thinking it over through my head for countless nights until I write it off as just another outlandish dream. I'm hoping to minor in audio engineering at MIT where I will major in Aerospace engineering. I've put a lot of things on hold to try and save every cent I have to put towards this project of mine and I'm seeing no progress in the building up of money simply due to bills piling up and having to help my mom with some of her expenses still. Having this music studio be built into my second room would allow me to be able to produce on a level that can change the way sound is heard to almost industry standards. It would open up opportunities for me to possibly find a career out of this hobby and open up new contacts and connections that would have otherwise been unreachable. If you have any money you can spare, it would help me a lot to pursue my dreams and ambitions to donate any small amounts that you have. I'm at the top of my class so most of my time is spent either focusing on my schoolwork and studying, band and after school band practices and drills, my martial arts classes that I've been doing since I was a little kid, and every free hour I have after that I spend working at the snowball stand trying to save as much money as I can. Anything helps and when possible I will get all donators' names engraved into a plaque of sorts and hang it on the studio wall when the goal gets reached as a way of remembering the sponsors that made it all possible. Thank you for reading this, updates will be posted as money is raised. Please spread this everywhere you can, anything helps.
