We crave music.
We listen to it, we make other art about it, we make it a huge cultural focus. For many people, they love making it.
Making music is one of the most basic human needs. Archaeologists believe music has existed for as long as there have been people--they find evidence of instruments going back over 40,000 years! Some evidence is now showing we "sang" before we spoke.
But maybe you've been told you shouldn't. It's amazing what our loved ones feel justified in saying to people they profess to care about:
- You have no sense of pitch.
- You have no sense of rhythm.
- Can you just keep your singing in the shower?
- You're just not musically inclined.
- You're tone deaf.
Usually our friends don't realize that their words reinforce behaviors that cut you off from our source, from your connection with an experience everyone else seems to take great joy in. A connection that is in your bones, deep in your humanity; a connection with over 40,000 years of history.
The urge to make music is strong, deep, engrained. Unfortunately, you probably believe your loved ones when they say you shouldn't make music. You've internalized the story and tell it to yourself and the world: "I'm just not musically inclined."
Well, I don't believe music is an "inclination." I believe music is a human need, and the conviction to make it--whether it's singing along to the radio, drumming to beats in your head, or bringing emotion from an instrument--is necessary to make us better people. I believe people don't need the permission of others to take a stand for their experience of music.
But I get it, it can be scary to start this journey. There is a lot of judgment involved, from yourself and your peers, and sometimes you can't do it alone. This is where I come in.
