#ThirtyOneinThirtyOne - Lindsay's Story

At three, I begged my parents for a violin – and by age five they finally agreed. “I wish I hadn’t waited until 5th grade to start taking lessons,” was the wisdom of a high-school violinist that encouraged my parents to take the risk of beginning violin lessons for a five-year-old!

Throughout the years I’ve shifted my musical emphasis from violin to voice. At Magnificat High School I began to find my voice: I learned what it meant to joyfully serve others with your gifts. I began to understand the joy of lifting your voice in song, whether it be in praise, performance or competition.

As I continued to study music, I learned how to strive for excellence while joyfully serving others. My choral director at Butler University once said, “can you hear the person next to you?” This changed my perspective on singing in a choir and I became more aware of my fellow musicians. My own musical experience was thus enriched. It was wonderful! Participating and listening to others led me to consider teaching.

Since that time, I have had the opportunity to provide music education to diverse students in a variety of locations. In encouraging them to master challenging songs and to find courage for performances, I too am teaching them to joyfully serve others through their musical gifts.

So don’t wait! Whether you are young or old, can carry a tune or not – there are so many ways to find your voice. All can joyfully serve others in song.
