When I was a child, around 12 years old, I decided on my own that I really wanted to study classical piano. So I told my parents that I wanted to start at the music school in my city and they were okay with that. But then, the day before registration, I listened on a TV program to this concert of an important orchestra here in Argentina, and I fell in love with the flutist.
I ran to my mom and I said: “I changed my mind, I really really want to study this instrument.” And then, I studied flute for 8 years until one day I went with my boyfriend to see a concert of his favorite pianist (he played with this important Argentinian orchestra). I thought I was really late for the concert because I went from my job. I’m always a little clumsy when I'm walking.
So imagine me almost running between people (because I live in Buenos Aires, so there are many people) and then I saw my boyfriend in the line. I was really happy that I arrived just in time that I forgot people and I collided with this famous flutist, that one who inspired me to study flute, and almost made him fall. I was embarrassed of course, but when I saw him, I wanted the earth to eat me at that moment. Finally he talked a little bit with me and said to me, “Never stop playing. Music can be everything for some people.”
