Last Monday, June 8, 2020, our ka-Siloy viewers were able to enjoy the jamming session at CDN Digital’s Lockdown: A break from the outbreak with Chelsea Dawn.
The 21-year-old singer/songwriter from Dumaguete City shared her music with the online community while playing the guitar during her live broadcast.
Chelsea, who graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Silliman University, admitted that it took her a while to develop her skills in playing a stringed instrument.
But while it was difficult, practicing daily only made her realize how she loved music and why she would want to share her sound to the world.
From the process of writing lyrics to making melodies or chord progressions, for Chelsea making music is something that she enjoys as music lets her communicate with her listeners.
During the Lockdown episode, Chelsea sang some of her original compositions and she was able to convey her strong passion and love for music through her songs.
As Chelsea is a living proof of how hard work and practice beats talent, she shares some advice to those who also aspire to be a musician.
“Never stop learning even when you think you’ve learned enough or if you think you already know everything,” she said.
“Have fun and take a break if you need to. Being creative can be frustrating at times, there are times you’re gonna think you’re never gonna amount to something or you think you’re never gonna get there or you’re never gonna wanna do this again, but once you’re in this path, whether its music or any form of art, you’re always gonna find your way back towards it so just take it easy on yourself,” she said./dbs
