Adele's Story :
My name is Adele Leahy and I am a 17-year-old musician from Lakefield Ontario Canada.
Music has been apart of my life ever since I can remember; I believe I started playing when I was three years old.
I play the fiddle, piano, cello, sing, step dance, and recently started playing guitar and the tin whistle. Today, music is a very important aspect of my life and I feel very fortunate to be able to share my thoughts and melodies with audiences around the world through live performances.
When I take a minute to reflect on how music can affect me, it puts a great responsibility on me knowing that my music and performances can have a great impact on so many people. There is no greater compliment I receive than hearing someone say that they have been inspired by my music, and I know the feeling because I too have been inspired many times by other incredible musicians.
Although I am too young to offer any words of wisdom, I do know that learning to play music has helped me in so many ways, because it requires dedication, discipline, patience, and a whole lot of time, but now I can truly say that I love what I do, I love where music has taken me, and I look forward to the new opportunities music will bring
