Music, One Thing I Truly Enjoy
I am happy that my parents helped me realise that I get energised when I sing and listen to music, especially western music. My parents have always encouraged and believed that I could be a singer. They have been taking me tirelessly to participate in music competitions. The learning is that I need to learn the basics and learn the fundamentals.
Chennaites, we are blessed. We have the right place where we get the right teaching, infrastructure and the coaching for Western Music – Academy of Western Music.
One day at school, I received news that I had been selected for the inter school singing competition at St. Johns Public School. About 48 schools and approximately 400 children participated in the competition. There were three judges, Mr. Yani Desh, Mr. Prasanna and Mr. Kumarasan. They announced that the winner would be awarded a trophy and a certificate. I felt slightly nervous right before getting on the stage.
Later, after all the schools completed their performances, it was time for the results. I was eager, hoping for a place amongst the top three. As the judges were about to dictate the winners name, my heart was beating fast, everyone were anxious to know the results. That’s when they announced, that The Best Singer Award goes to R.Sathviga Sri. I was startled. It was something very unanticipated and unexpected. Flying in excitement, I received my trophy and left the stage. There were mainly two reasons of my success, The Academy of Western Music and my family’s contributions to this competition. I would definitely like to thank my wonderful teacher, Ms. Sangita Santosham. For Patiently correcting my mistakes when I would go wrong, for constantly raising me up when I would sink and for heartening me when I would feel down. I am also thankful for learning everything you have taught me as it has helped me incredibly. I would like to thank my parents for helping me solve every problem I have gone through, pulling me up when I fall down and for believing in me with all their heart. Lastly, I would like to conclude by saying thanks again for all your support.
