At the age of ten he moved to the United States to begin his new journey.
In his book, Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain (2008), Oliver Sacks presents “musicophilia” as a mental disorder that has verifiable effects in the physical and emotional health of the “victim.” Sacks uses many research summaries and case histories to discuss this brain and behavioral condition that he sees as a problem to be fixed. I suggest that musicophilia, though typically considered a phenomenal disability, offers extraordinary abilities to some individuals and, through those “victims,” to society.

In the historical fiction novel Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse, the central character Billie Jo faces many adversities that could have crushed her hopes, dreams and spirit. The author Karen Hesse, states, “the way I see it, hard times aren’t only about money, or drought, or dust. .Hard times are about losing spirit, and hope, and what happens when dreams dry up.” This quote means that the way the author sees it, the hard times in Billie Jo’s life aren’t always on the surface, as she faced losing her sense of self, her optimism, and her goals she wished to achieve. Billie Jo is confronted with the challenges of her strained relationship with her father, as well as guilt over her mother’s death, yet she is able to hold onto her spirit, hopes,
Most people of academic achievement ought to be able to readily cite a vast number of supportive mentors. John Donne recognized this through one of his works, stating that “no man is an island”. I am no outlier to this trend, for I have an immensely helpful family, superb educators, and friends that share similar interests in the world of science. However, I would like to concentrate on a rather unsuspecting part of my schooling as having the highest impact: my junior high music teacher. Amidst my life fixated on textbook education, she forced me to never be complacent, to hold high behavioral standards, and to passionately pursue the flighty sparks of inspiration.
All people have their good days and bad days. In the poems “Piano” by D.H. Lawrence and “Those Winter Sundays” by Robert Hayden, the speaker's experience both good memories and bad. Both speakers lived a simple life but what they as a individual were going through was not so simple. The poems each show love even if it's hard to tell.

Sitting down in the English Classroom, his dark, thick, curly hair waves like a black sea. As Prashanth sits with his legs parallel to the floor and his mind open to my questions, he recalls his past experiences when he would play the piano, in his house. As his eyes grow stale and his mind wanders off into a long past world, he slowly recollects these great times.
Peter l took the Russian throne in 1682 at the age of 10. However he didn’t take control of the government until 1689 at the age of 17.

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

If I had a ticket that could take me anywhere, I would use it to go back in time to the time when Maestro Johnson was my musical advisor.
