Whether it was concerts she was in for school, or attending her favorite artists concert, she would always have a good time. Frannie is pleased with her decision and her and her parents’ hard work to make everything she has done and what the future holds work. 

Q: What got you interested in band?

A: “Around the time when we were choosing our instruments in fifth grade, at that time I was still playing piano, so I already had music experience, it was already a part of my life. But then my two older siblings were involved in band so I kind of already knew that I would choose an instrument, so that’s kind of the reason why I started.”

Q: Have you always wanted to be involved in music?

A: “To be honest, no. You know I used to be involved in piano growing up, but I didn’t love it at the time, and when I joined band I kind of saw it as something I was forced to do, But over time I grew to love it and now I know I always want it to be a part of my life But I definitely didn’t view it that way to begin with.”

Q: How did you start in music?

A: “Well, the reason I started in music, when I was about five years old I started piano lessons so that’s how I started in music and I learned a lot about music from that. So then going into band was an easy transition, and I just stuck with band and I don’t do piano anymore 

Q: What was the impact music has made in your life?

A: “Music has made such an impact on my life because it could be playing music in band or listening to music I obviously love. Just my love of music creation and production, it’s just being involved in all of that has shaped my kind of path in life because now I know that I want to go into music as a career, it’s really just shaped the way I want to live my life, and opened up a whole door of passion for me.”

Q: How long has music been a part of your life?

A: “Music has been a part of my life for about thirteen years now. I started when I was five in piano and now I am still involved in band so it’s been about thirteen years.”
