We all know that music is the calming influencer in our lives. some folk prefer the noisier and generally more upbeat kind – jazz, hip-hop and any of the new named genres. I can’t keep up with them because I’m not of that generation and it has all passed me by – years ago. I do know however that if I was to have my chances again as a youngster, I would most definitely think about a career in music. How I look longingly at the Proms when they’re broadcast on tv. I isten to classical music anyway as a default preference. The joy that fills me when a particular favourite comes on is overwhelming sometimes and it fills me with all the get up and go that I could ever need. I do log on to all sorts of music education info and thoroughly enjoy myself and have beefed up my minimal piano lessons as a result of learning this way.
