For this blog post, let’s assume that you the reader have had at least a few music lessons in your life. You struggled through learning your scales and always wondered why it was necessary. Sharps and flats are confusing and useless! Why can’t everything just be in the key of C?
During my college years, my music theory professors spent most of their time teaching about all of the rules for writing music. Indeed, your writing assignments had to follow these rules or you would find yourself taking the class once again.
Before March 17th, I had never been out of the country. Not even Canada! I was born in the suburbs of Chicago and later raised in Southeastern Wisconsin - let's just say I didn't get out much. I do not think that attending UW-Whitewater - which is only 30 minutes from my hometown - counts as "getting out", but it was the best I had. That is, until I was given the opportunity to visit a total of four countries - and play my instrument? Oh yeah. This was happening.
