Chances are, you have all heard freshman Natalie Enzmann play her ukulele down the hallway on her way to class, but do any of you really know why she does it? Everyone is quick to make their own judgements, but never take the time to get to know the girl behind the ukulele.

“I like to make people happy, and to some, it usually makes them smile. I hope to brighten their day,” Enzmann said.

Natalie started teaching herself how to play the ukulele about three months ago when she was inspired by the most recent winner of America’s Got Talent, Grace Vanderwal.

However, the ukulele isn’t the only instrument she can play. She also plays the saxophone and is currently learning how to play the the trumpet.

Music is a big part of her life. Her love for music started when she played round with the drums at the age of three. After she had received her first stringed instrument, a guitar, her talent and passion for music took off.

Enzmann’s love and passion for music goes far beyond just playing instruments, however, she also loves to sing. She has been in Chorus for a number of years and continues to do so. She also sang in the advanced ensemble while she was in middle school and is currently in North Hall’s drama.

Part of Natalie Enzmann’s musical interests came from her family’s background with music. Her father used to play percussion, and her brother has currently taken an interest in it. Not only are her father and brother musically talented, but her sisters are as well.

As Natalie travels down her path of music and arts, she has high hopes to one day be in the production of voice over. She has a numerous amount of friends and family to support her along the way.

However, Natalie completely understands that there will be people to rain on your parade. “Many people like it when I play music down the hallway, but others don’t,” explained Enzmann, “We are all human and we all have feelings. As long as someone is happy in the end, I’m okay.”

Natalie Enzmann strives to bring a little more happiness in the world and claims that “music brings happiness.”

So the next time you hear Enzmann plucking on her ukulele, you can appreciate not only her passion for music, but her passion for making people smile.
