Music has been and will continue to be my life. I’ve been a performer, teacher, mentor, conductor, arranger, composer, music editor, music copyist, and music consumer at various times of my life since the age of five. I’ve seen people change because of the influences of music including myself. Music brings us back to memories of another time in history and in our own lives, also.
Music speaks to us where stories and film are unable for various reasons. Music touches our emotions and our emotions stimulate our memories. Combining music with film creates a unique, powerful, and at times an unforgettable experience. I hope that you will take time to truly enjoy music and listen to some music that is new to you, but may be from an earlier century, from a few decades ago, or a new artist has a new song available. After all, variety IS the spice of life.
Leave a comment and let me know how you feel about music.
