A Musical Legacy
Becca Amendola has been playing the trumpet almost all of her life. She picked up the trumpet when she was 10 in order to follow her parents footsteps in music, and has continued to follow through with her music in her adult life.
Though Amendola has dealt with some trials and tribulations, she manages to always find the positives that music has brought to her life. Through the grueling hours that come with the practices and traveling back and fourth with the blue band, she found a fiancé, and despite taking a fall before the first game of the season this year, she wears the dinosaur shaped scar she received from it as a badge.
Amendola's passion for music has brought her to where she is today, and she couldn't imagine her life without it. She says she looks forward to incorporating music into her future children's lives one day as well.
