MUSIC has been with me for as long as I can remember. I'm not talking about an appreciation for sound, feeling rhythm, or hearing good melodies. I mean that MUSIC has been with me in my heart and soul. I never heard it because I internalized it. I never felt it because I was touched by it. I never appreciated it because I was amazed by it. The journey from interest to passion would be the same as the start and end dates of my life.
