Everything has a history. Every part of ourselves and every item in this world came from a connection, an inspiration, a movement, or an idea. Going back in history to experience how things came to be is simultaneously a luxury and a necessity.
I returned to the National Music Museum to complete the extensive tour and immerse myself more in our musical history. To be surrounded by some of the first guitars, trumpets, and saxophones ever made is captivating. To know that these items were hand crafted with such detail and passion makes us appreciate their beauty. It give us insight into the history of how the music we listen to today came to be.
The evolution of instruments, over time, is fascinating to see because it mirrors the constant change within our own lives. The musical world we live in today creates tracks with less emphasis on the sound of live music. We can no longer identify what instruments are playing in some of our favorite songs. We just hear the beat and focus on the lyrics. But music is much more than what we experience in this generation. Music has the power of connection and revitalization. We have lost the desire for music that makes us ask - What is that instrument? What gives off that unique sound?
Walking through the Music Museum and listening to these instruments, has made me fallen in love with music all over again.
