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!
