As some of you may know, I’m a pretty musical person. That is really one thing in my life that I can truly say that I am passionate about (besides school work of course! ;) ) Back in the days of kindergarten I can remember being asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I would always proudly say, “A COUNTRY MUSIC GUITAR-ER!”

I grew up in a very musical household where my father was playing guitar and singing old Beatles songs to me when I was still in the womb. My dad came from a very musical background from playing guitar for over 50 years and being in bands all his life. Growing up, everything had to do with either singing or guitar for me. I started piano lessons at the age of 5 and my dad started teaching me guitar at 9. We have countless home videos of me putting on my own “concerts” where our fire place was my stage. Around the age of twelve, I started writing a lot of songs and music with my dad, and have continued ever since. My songs are something I really take pride in. It is my way of releasing stress and letting others know how I truly feel on the inside. I put a lot of videos on YouTube and what not, so if anyone ever wants to go check me out the URL is: http://www.youtube.com/user/09mmyers.

Enough about me, and more about my current FAVORITE movie. I know others feel the same, but I’m in love with the movie Pitch Perfect. I will literally watch it over and over again some nights while I’m working on homework and studying. If I’m not watching it I’m usually listening to the soundtrack. Overkill, yes I know. But then other day I was just messing around in my room (working patiently) trying to learn the “Cups” song that the character Bella does for her audition. I’ve gotten some compliments on it, so I thought I would share it with everyone! Hope you like it too!
