When I'm writing this ,it will be exactly one years that I start play bass itself (3 months were theory ). In this one year a lot of things happen ,from leavening music school to getting nominated in 2 subject . First I think I should update . I left music school because the pressure I got and the toxicity of the school . The way I got treated and I got pushed . Later I watched a movie called whiplash and I found how close my teacher was to the teacher on movie . After leaving music school ,I got kicked out by my band.but it didn't stop me . Because I had two band I want sad . I could go with another .but after few days I got a call from a teacher from school that he is making a music band from his top student (he teaches guitar) ,and invited me join his band . And I liked the idea so I joined the band and after few weeks practice we did a live performance and that happen got a lot of good feedback specially my playing style and the bassline I made . The practice with my own band and with the new band lead me have a lot of practice myself and kind of becoming happy that the previous band kicked me . Few days ago ,the announcement for music fest came out . In the paper they announced the nomination (its like Grammy but with different rule and it's much smaller than Grammy ). And I was super surprised because my name was on welcome artist nomination(it's subject for artist who are new to music) and in the end of list my name was in best live performance band (it's for band but because the band was the band I play in it ,I'm nominated for this too ). That's surprising for me that I can make it happen . And I'm Surprise that our of pressure I'm much more successful and our of school have much better chance . Today is one year and this year had a lot of up and down . Thanks for Talkbass and of course members of it that helped me and guide me . Thanks for your support and have a great time .
