Music has been an essential part of me since I could remember myself. I minored in music, focusing on classical piano performance at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. Now, I am expanding my studies into jazz.
Some people categorize music as an ‘auditory cheesecake’, but I disagree. Music is holistic and cannot be broken down to indices. It is intentional, communicative, and inspirational. Music completes the ambience of human relationships. A sigh may be of disappointment or ineffability. Its true meaning is determined by its ‘music’, rather than the action itself. Like so, music goes beyond the conventional ‘do re mi’. It is seeded in every culture in its unique form.
