Hallelujah! I was accepted at Music and Art High School (MnA4Life). It was a very exciting time of my life.

I had spent two years in Junior High School. Now it was time to find a good High School.


When I was eight years old, my mother gave my brother Bruce; my younger sister Noelle; and me piano 

lessons. Every Saturday morning, Mrs Rosenthal would trek all the way from Donizetti Place, in Co-op 

City to our house to teach us music. I did not ask or beg her. It was strictly, her idea. :)


I loved it. Every once in a while, we would have recitals. Thus we had to practice. This went on for several

years. When I got to junior high, we had voice or chorus classes. We also had Home Economics; such as

Cooking and Sewing. :)


So when the time was right, I applied for several schools. They were outside of my zip code. :) I had to 

prepare myself for M&A. So I practiced hard. I chose a piece that I could manage. I was auditioned by

Mr. Knight. Although I was nervous, I followed through. Eventually, my results came in. I do not know 

whether it was their first choice, but I was not rejected. ;) This meant that I would have to ride the train

daily. (ugh) I would also have to climb many steps, in Morning Side Park. It was a good thing. Later on,

my classmate told me that I wrote in their yearbook, "these were the best years of our lives."


Another thing that impressed me was that many of us went into ministry. Some were fortunate enough to be

in the movie, "Fame". Moreover, many magnate high schools popped up around the city. 


Although I had wanted my son Matthew to attend the same school, things did not happen the why I 

planned. He was a natural born artist. I was willing to help him prepare. Oh well!


The bottom line is that, I was accepted at Music & Art. Many of us still keep in contact. Many of us 

still attend the reunions. It is so amazing. Thank you Lord! God is Good! He has done Great Things.
