The O’Keefe Music Foundation helped me find myself. When I was 13 I was anxious and insecure, and had played the guitar for a bit as a hobby. But then, OMF gave me a glimpse of what a real working musician does and I was absolutely hooked. 7 years later, I have recorded in professional studios for my own music, work as a teacher at the Lebanon Music Academy, and have gone on tours with my band consisting of members I have met through the program. Thanks to OMF I have the courage to pursue all of these things and my life has changed for the better!
