Why Music?


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?
