"True House Music consists of four main ingredients: A cup of spirituality, a tablespoon of love, a dash of togetherness, and a pinch of soul-penetrating beats. House Music has the power to heal, to soothe, to comfort. It’s the music of love, the music from up above. True House Music is an instrument of God and if this instrument is used wisely, it can change your soul. House is a feeling. If you feel nothing, it isn’t House.” - C&M Productions ft. Marcel.

Music is the connective force of our life. Like an act of grace, creating music can ignite the hearts of millions.

Music is one of the most powerful forces in creating and binding community, but mass representation does not sufficiently reflect the variety of today’s music production and performance as an artform.

Solving this problem requires a coordinated effort across industries, but it starts with encouraging budding artists.

The Austin Kramer Music Scholarship exists to support students who will use their talents to make the world a better place with music. 

This scholarship is open to any student, in any field of study.

The purpose of my playlist to show the diversity in my music taste. I don't like to discriminate even in music! I love it all! My playlist shows multiple music genres that drive me to continue making music. Also, being up to and experimenting with new styles. I love listening to music all the time; I'm listening to music while writing this! It's therapeutic for me. I get my emotions out by listening to music and creating it. Music is the best form of communication, with so many unique styles that can fit anyone. Enjoy the playlist :)
