    Oh my gosh I'm so stoked about music again!

    For years I've felt like I just lost it, like my passion just broke inside of me. These last two months have just been fantastic though! I've been playing every day and enjoying every minute of it, even the stuff we often think of as drudgery! I forgot how much freer I felt...

    Music Majors Should Love Music.

    so many music majors i know, are perfectionists. they love music because they love to mold something into perfection. yet, they miss out on the power of music; its ability to capture you and take you where you need to go. how you can close your eyes and float in nothingness...

    I absolutely love studying music,

    especially classical voice (which is my emphasis). The fact that most of my classes focus on what I love is amazing. I just wish the work load wasn't so intense :/

    I'm a music major, but I feel like these past

    four years have killed my love for music and playing. I used to enjoy playing and get excited about it. Now it feels draining every time I pick up my instrument. I don't know what else I can do though. I wish I had never gone to college or got so involved in music.

    Music Is A Vast Universe, And We Have Not Yet Mapped A Planet.

    I will only accept music that is incomprehensibly bafflingly infathomably phenomenal. That is to say "I hate all music that has ever been written by man." I am a composer, and I have not yet contributed an innovation to the musical world. However, I hope to one day...
