My Thoughts on Music
Hello, and welcome to my blog! I have always loved music, since I was a little girl and told my preschool teachers that I wanted to be an opera singer when I grew up! Sadly, I didn't have the lungs, but the violin has been quite fulfilling enough for me.
Recently I was reading a book about finding the work you love, and the author mentions the importance of creative expression in order to make one feel happy about their work/ career. However, if one does not have practice being creatively expressive, it can be quite hard to just turn that switch on all of a sudden!
Such is why I believe that studying the arts is one of the most important activities for personal sense of well-being and fulfillment, and a pursuit that can be done on any level, at any age, and by those who speak any language. Music is so universal, so culturally explanatory, and is so beautiful an art in that although there may be one version of it captured on paper, there can be endless versions recreated, and each will be just a bit different and given the unique touch of the individual who recreates it.
In studying music, we open up a world full of endless opportunities, new perspectives, and chances for both camaraderie and leadership as we play together and perform as groups and as soloists. My goal in being a music tutor and violin teacher is not to make money, become famous, or indoctrinate the world with my prestigious style of teaching. Nay, my goal is to share my favorite art form with you and help you to gain the personal joy of understanding and playing music!
