With music programs being cut everywhere and playing music being looked on as more of a hobby for most, it is important to remember that making it in music isn’t meant to be just a childhood throw-away dream.

As if that short film wasn’t moving enough, go back and watch it again, but this time close your eyes and pay close attention to the soundtrack.
