The Whole Story
As promised I am going to share with you the full story of my musical journey. I can only end the post by saying where it is I hope to be in the future because this is going to be the rest of my life.
What I am sharing with you is the beginning of my whole story. I will still be posting a lot about fashion as you will read in my story, but I will have a huge focus on music when it comes to my career.
I hope that you enjoy this post, share it and feel encouraged and inspired.
Let’s get started..
Nadine always had a huge passion for music and started off singing in her school choir. This led on to singing lessons and guitar lessons.
“My next door neighbor had a piano, and when they moved houses they gifted my family the piano as they couldn’t take it with them when they moved. I then began taking piano lessons but didn’t know that that was what I wanted to do until I composed my first song.”At age 12 Nadine composed her first piano piece called My Pink Zebra and that was the beginning of it all.”
Nadine then began composing her own piano pieces. After 2 years of constantly playing the same melodies, Nadine had the idea of writing lyrics to them.
“I stopped piano lessons after maybe just a few months because my teacher wasn’t teaching me how to read and I just didn’t want to go on. I really wanted to learn, but it was just the process of having to go to lessons and practicing everyday. I really regretted that decision though.
We moved house after that time and had to leave our piano behind so my dad bought a keyboard. Every day after school I would come home and start playing things I made up. I just wanted to create. I didn’t know that I was actually writing a song at the time.
I had to teach myself how to play the keyboard as I didn’t get far in my lessons, so I didn’t really know anything.
I taught myself chords and began working from that. I ended up creating a few short melodies.
I played the same short tunes to almost every single piano style that was on the keyboard. All those different sounds and textures. After a while I just started to write some lyrics to it and I created Walk In The Light. That was my first song that had lyrics. “After Walk In The Light came Tear Stained Friends, J.O.Y. and Walk In The Glory (To name but a few).”
She first sang her songs at her home in front of all her family.
“I was soo nervous and shaky as no one in my family knew that I was into music let alone sing, song write etc. I sang with my cousin and everyone was silent. I sang J.O.Y. and Walk In The Light, and those two became very popular within my family.
I decided that it was time for me to find someone to sing with as I was still shy of singing by myself.
