Abstract

For the Music is a collection of creative nonfiction essays chronicling nine years of my life from when I first discover music to playing in my high school marching band. The theme of the collection is coming of age, with each piece highlighting a particular lesson I struggle to learn based around my experiences with band. Such situations include overcoming shyness, accepting change, and discovering how to work with others.
