I’m a mediocre flute player; I’ve been playing for quite a while, but I’ve never prioritized practicing and due to this have never had the kind of skill that dedicated musicians earn. Making music was something I enjoyed but didn’t move my life around. I stopped taking band after my freshman year of high school in order to make room for the STEM classes I wanted to take, something I now regret.

Content to be filled up in the slides. But wait, where is the content? How to fill up our findings and fill it up in the slides? We are falling short of ideas and we just hope for a divine intervention to happen.
