|What role does music play in your life?
That's like asking me what role oxygen and carbon play in my life. Essentially without music, I feel naked. There's something about being able to listen to a song that matches your mood. Or a song that changes your mood or one that let's you be the creator of the story.
I grew up in a very music oriented household. Music was on all the time, usually classic rock, both my parents would sing to the lyrics. My dad especially, he would sing a lot. Once we were old enough, my mom got us into the music programs at school. She went out of her way to rent or buy us the instruments we needed. I remember being the most awesome kid in 4th grade because I had my own recorder. I learned how to play the flute and tenor saxophone and even tried plucking a few cords out on the guitar. I was never the greatest at it but I loved it all the same.
The instruments may have come and gone but my voice has always been there, that's one of the hidden talents I have, I can sing, and quite well. Not as well as I was able to in high school since I've been out of practice for awhile but I can still manage to keep a tune and not go off key.
There's something about music that is beautiful beyond comprehension. It can bring people together when words fail, it can expose emotions that usually remain hidden to the world.
My favorite part about it though is that everyone hears the same lyrics, the same rhythm, the exact same tune but takes away a completely different feeling or thought from it.
Music makes me feel more alive. It makes the world a more colorful place. I can't imagine what it would be like if it didn't exist.
