A life in music is a life of perpetual growth and development. True musicians always hunger for ways to add depth and breadth to their skills and expression. Just when it seems like it can’t get any better, we discover new amazing music around us within ourselves.
Sometimes that growth comes from unexpected places, as we learn how exercise makes us better musicians. We’ll also see how the growth of music recording technology benefitted from that same restless, creative drive. And we’ll see how a classical conductor (and committed wallflower) found his passion in tango music and dance.
The history of music of all kinds mirrors our personal musical journey in its process of constant refinement. Nowhere is this so well documented than in the grand march of musical masterpieces known as Western Classical Music.
