Humans of OA: Alexander Foote

“As of right now, I play six instruments. I’ve played piano for nine years (four of which I took lessons), and I’ve taken viola for seven years starting with in-school lessons; those are the only two I’ve been taught. On the other hand, I taught myself how to play guitar, bass, harmonica, and drums. I also want to learn to play alto saxophone eventually. If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be piano simply because it requires no “set-up” and virtually any song can be played on it. I would like to work in music composition at some point in life, though I’m not positive I want to pursue a full-time career in it.” – Alex Foote, grade 11
