Music That Moves You

Found in: Miscellany & Merriment

In the last edition we talked about what music moves you as a listener. This month we’d like to know more about the music you play – what are the pieces that move you and why? Do you have a piece that you’ve always wanted to play? Why do you think you like what you like? What role does playing music have in your life? What’s more important to you, playing or listening?  Why do you play? Why do you like what you listen to?

These days I’ve been finding improvisation to be a marvelous journey. I’ve always improvised, but since going a little deeper into it with a teacher, I’ve started discovering that I can contribute something unique. Do you feel you have your own musical voice?  Or do you have a particular composer or songwriter who somehow reflects you better than any other?

Let us know what music means the most to you.
