Liverpool is a city of arts and music and the highlight of my time in Liverpool is being able to immerse myself with music totally not only as a student but also as a performer. My dream of performing regularly to a live audience was fulfilled when I joined a local band, Kevin Critchley as the keyboardist. The time spent rehearsing and performing with the band was absolutely wonderful. Also the many art galleries provided me with an avenue to appreciate paintings and artwork of many artists.
