A huge part of my life has been music since a young age considering my mother also played an instrument and was in her own high school’s marching band. As a child, the piano sitting in the dining room of my home always taunted me with the mystery as to why it was there, but I was consistently curious as to what it would sound like to play. After deliberating intensely, I finally decided to teach myself how to play, and playing the piano soon became an important part of my life. As soon as I was allowed in the band, I joined and began to learn how to play the trombone; however, only knowing how to play one instrument within the marching band never managed to sate me. This need later led me to switch to Euphonium in order to perfect my skill

I wish to attend St. Agnes so that I can take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities it has to offer. Unlike my current school, St. Agnes offers a wide range of courses, arts, and sports. My current school doesn’t offer as many advanced classes as St. Agnes. I realize the importance of Accelerated and Advanced Placement classes, so if I do get accepted by St. Agnes, I will try my very best in all academic classes so that I can take as many AP and AC classes as I’m allowed. Besides having a very wide course range, St. Agnes also has an amazing arts program, so I would like to continue playing piano as a part of STA, and maybe even pick up the violin.
