“Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start. When you read you begin with A, B, C. When you sing you begin with Do, Re, Mi.” ~ The Sound of Music
Where to begin…
“To most of society, music plays some sort of role in their life. Whether that role be major or less significant, no one can deny it has some sort of impact on them. Music can affect someone without them even realizing it. From somebody’s favorite songs on their iPod to the songs that play on commercials while watching TV, they will all affect a person in some way, shape, or form.”
~ my son wrote this for one of his final research papers last year. I could not have said it any better myself. Trust me, I tried! But he finally just let me quote him for this blog. (thanks, buddy!)
You see, I believe that just about everything, when it comes right down to it, can be connected to music. Whether it be a lyric, a memory from a tune long ago, a feeling, a concert, the first album you ever bought, etc… it’s all connected to our lives. Thus the title of my blog “Making Life a Song”. Music lights me up big time! My earliest memories involve music.
I also believe that everyone in some way or another connects to music. You don’t have to be a musician or have had formal music lessons to love music. It’s just something that is innate. I LOVE that aspect of music. This blog is about loving music, in all it’s wonderful shapes and sizes.
We are going to let it connect us on this blog. I hope you follow along! I’d love to learn about you and the joy you find in music, as well.
