Discover Magnolia's story...
As a kid, music was everywhere around me. My dad played his big acoustic guitar and my mom would sing along with her angelic voice. I admired their abilities to turn silence into music, so I began to make music of my own.
In eighth grade I walked two miles to the closest music shop and bought the cheapest instrument I could find: a tiny ukulele I named Duke the Uke.
After watching a series of youtube tutorials I finally got a grasp of my little ukulele, and proceeded to buy 3 more.
Since then, I’ve begun teaching ukulele and I have been the Lower Campus choir assistant for 3 years, where I have gained invaluable experience working with students and learning about myself through it.
I found myself creating a playful yet meaningful melody when Ms. Gannon, our Social Entrepreneurship teacher, urged us to try storytelling in new ways. Suddenly images in my mind turned into catchy phrases, and feelings to chords. Before I knew it, I had written my first song: The Friendship Club.
I realized my budding affection for songwriting could be a meaningful tool to offer a place of empathy and authenticity for youth struggling with the themes of my songs. Thus formed Noteable.
