A Cool Music Show

If you really enjoy reality shows and like music, you should really check out M.T.V´s Taking The Stage. Ive seen the show several times but don't watch it devotedly as some other t.v shows. Its interesting to see the amount of creative people in the world and how music is truly a form of expression.

The cast of the show goes to the School for the Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati. Each member has their own talents and their own dreams to fulfill. In the second season new faces come into the show along with old ones that return from season one. The show is not only about making your musical dreams come true, it is also about the love lives and relationships among the cast members. Its interesting to see how each character somehow uses music to vent their emotions. A particular example is Emily Sones, the beautiful singer/songwriter, who overcame an eating disorder and uses her compositions to express her feelings. You find dancers, singers, composers, and actors who show you what the fight for your dreams is truly about.

I really recommend this show. It can be truly inspiring for people out there to see others just like them being in an environment where you breath and live music. My personal favorite characters are the singer/songwriters because as the show progresses you see all the things that happen to them and how they turn those moments into notes and melodies.
I hope you check it out! If you click here you can watch the first episode of season 2.
