Read what famous composers have said about music.
If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music.
“Its easy to play any musical instrument: All you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument plays itself.”
“The whole problem can be stated quite simply by asking, “Is there a meaning to music?” My answer would be, “yes.” And “Can you state in so many words what the meaning is?”, my answer to that would be, “No.””
“Music is given to us with the sole purpose of establishing an order in things, including, and particularly, the co-ordination between man and time.
Oscar Hammerstein II
“All the sounds on the Earth are like music.”
“Music is the silence between the notes”
Ludwig van Beethoven
“Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.”
“Music is everybody’s possession. Only publishers think that people own it.”
