Music is a Lifeline

Story posted March 14, 2016 in News by Anneli Jennings

Kyle Sardinia is a recent graduate from Penn State. He’s been playing music for more than nine years, learning songs from some of his legends, like Bruce Springsteen, and creating his own music as well, learning from their style and trying to emulate their storytelling technique.

Kyle can play piano, guitar, mandolin, banjo, drums and is currently learning the fiddle. He also sings all of his own songs.

It’s personal for him, something that started as poetry in elementary school that eventually evolved into something more. For him, music turned into a way for him to express himself without sharing his feelings with anyone.

2011 going into 2012 was a tumultuous time for him. Sardinia had to take himself out of school to get his “head back on straight.” Music was his lifeline when he was separated from everything else in his life, and it’s stayed an important part of his life.
