Recently, I was asked a question that I hadn’t given attentive thought to; “Why music?”
What was it about music that compelled me to take what spare time I have (and it is small given my PhD pursuit and faculty positions), and put it towards composing, practicing and playing?
It took me a minute…but what it is about music for me is the following:
It feels like home to me.
It’s the one thing I never bore or tire from.
It’s always on my mind.
If something I write can even be a bit of that to someone else,
than it’s all worth it to me.
Why do you do what you do?
