To Me, Music Is...
...freedom. Freedom to express myself...freedom to enjoy myself. It means freedom to create something beautiful out of a bunch of hot air, wood, and metal. Sometimes it even means the freedom to be silly, but when performance time rolls around and all ears are on us, music means beauty and hard work.
