The right side and left side of the brain work together. Music.

Is Music is the way to tie both side’s of your brain more tightly together?   I would say it is more together with music than without.    Why?   I leave that to my book.  But at the least it makes sense to keep music in our school systems.

Why this website exists

The reason why this website is here is to create a platform to share ideas about music and why it is important.  Oh sure, there are many reasons stated as to why music is important.  But I have yet to find a truly compelling reason why it’s necessary.  Not that I don’t believe it exists.  I Know it exists.  I just have not found the right words to describe to a more cynical person as to why it is not just important, but necessary.  The closest I have been able to describe it is that it was created by gods,  but I know that’s not always going to be a very explainable position.  I know this: when you play a piece by Mozart or of Bach, you are literally walking in the imagination of genius. That can’t be bad, right?  I am open to all thoughts and ideas.  Lets figure this out!
