"Without music, life would be a mistake." Friedrich Nietzsche
Music - all styles and varieties of music - have helped man express himself over countless centuries of time. From the single-line chant of the monk to the complexities of symphonic music and all points in between, music and words set to music move us to dance, laugh, cry, think, meditate, unite, and revolt. Music can arouse feelings and sentiments within us that the spoken word alone sometimes cannot (should you doubt this, try reading the lyrics from your favorite blues song, pop hit, or aria apart from the music).
