In the last few days after I published my first two posts of “My Musical Talent” blog, I received more than 2000′ visitors and more than 50 comments.
This serious amount of reaction reinforced my deep thoughts and feelings that music has a powerful meaning for each one of us.
More than that, reading all the comments also strengthen my opinion that music appreciation, practice and understanding should be much more accessible to people.
I agree with him completely. Most of us have musicality in our genes. So if I understand Sacks correctly (and also Darwin, who was mention in my introduction to the blog), music is one of our basic mental needs of survival.
Soon I am going to go over all the comments I have received for my blog in the last two weeks and will publish a special post containing the main part of the discussion my post raised.
As for now, all the comments can be divided into two main groups. The first group consists of musicians who were born into a musical family and who had a distinct musical education from infancy by passive and active exposure. The second group of people did not specifically have roots in music, but had a revelation with music from a certain experience or an influential person. Much like in the movie “Music of the Heart” which is based on a true story about Roberta Guaspari, a charismatic violin teacher, who inspired a group of inner city children from Harlem.
The message of all of the comments shared a common denominator. No matter whether you have an in born or learned musicality, in order to integrate music into your body, mind and soul, you need to invest time, effort, devotion and energy into it.
I invite you to continue to read, write, discuss, comment and share your insights with all the curious people around.
