Isadora Swann is a great example of cross training, but with the arts. She’s an accomplished actor and is studying drama at USC. Even though she sometimes feels out of her depth, she’s excited to use her beginner’s mind to create, sing and record songs with Play It Back. Isadora is a pop-music fan who started her musical journey singing with her Ukrainian church choir. She learned to play Ukelele during her cancer treatment, playing and singing every song she could find for hours. Isadora used music to pass those long hours during her recovery. “Music to me has been a lifeline and backbone through it all and is like an old friend that’s always there with me in my back pocket,” Isadora said. Now she is jumping into a new creative journey with Play It Back and loving it.
