Hi I'm Morgan (Mogs), I am 11years old. I have made this video to see if there is anyone out there that can help me. So here goes, fingers crossed!
I guess you could say I am a bit different than most of the other kids I know. Mum and Dad say this is a good thing and I should keep on being me, but I don't have so many friends as a result.... There are lots of bullies at my main school but luckily I go to a great music class where there are others kids more like me. They are nice. They don't pick on me.
I have been playing the accordion for three and a bit years, and I absolutely love to make my own music for it.
If I want to keep going, I have to buy my own instrument this year.........!!!!
The class rents them for a maximum of three years, then you have to pass it on to another kid - fair enough I guess, but not good news for me.
In order to stay in my class I need a special type of accordion, one with special buttons that change the sound - so you can compose much more interesting stuff when you get good. They're really expensive and I have to raise at least 5.500 euro to get one! Crazy right?
My teacher is amazing and although she's very strict we have lots of fun - which none of my school teachers really get.....
Without one of these button accordions though I would have to stop, which would mean I'd have just my main school and no nice kids...... Pretty sucky.
If you can possibly help me, I would be so unbelievably happy and grateful I can't say how much - there are no words. I promise I'll work really hard and someday I will invite you all to come and see my first concert. That's a sure thing.
At some point I will get bigger and need an even bigger accordion - when that happens I will pass this one on (if I get it) to another kid who can't afford one - and I'll tell them they must pass it on too. A deal's a deal.
Please help give me the chance to do this?
Sending loads of love out to all you music lovers, Mogs.
