Music is the Purest Form of Art

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ― Plato

The Music Within Me

The music within me plays on and on

My heart whispers its magic melody

Guiding me on to my quest for truth

Linking me to each timeless memory.


Music opens its gates to freedom

Guiding me to my own front door

Beyond the cadence, I continue

Following one note after the other.


Petals in the wind

A custodian for the future

Keeping my dreams afloat

Prismatic colors invade empty measures.


A piano sits waiting

Eager fingers restoring my soul

The music within claims my passion

6/8 time explores rhythm sublime


A dazzling reverie lingers across my mind

Escorting feelings lost sensations

A banquet of genuine gratuity

Validate the movement of the moment.


Destiny lures me over the bridge

I'll go my own way

I'll write my own song

Nature's musical theme.


The music plays on.

My First Performance

Music introduced itself to me at the age of four. It was during a church service that I performed my first song in public. I remember as clear as day how it happened. The sermon featured the birth of Christ (Christmastime) and the scheduled soloist was ill. I heard the words ring out, "We need someone to come up to the pulpit and sing a song about the birth of Jesus. Would somebody be willing to help us out?"

I raised my little hand and bravely walked from my seat and up the stairs to the pulpit. The microphone was handed to me along with a stool to stand on so I could be seen by everyone.

As I gazed into the large audience I told myself that I was singing for Christ so I had better do a good job. I reminded myself not to be afraid and to sing from my heart. That's exactly what I did. My voice was filled with confidence as I felt the meaning of each word - "Away in a manger no room for a bed, the little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head". I sang a capella using perfect pitch.

Tears were streaming down the faces before me. I wasn't sure why. My mother explained to me later that I had given those folks a special gift. My singing helped them to feel a sweetness inside themselves.

Through music, people experience a kind of love. We all need to feel this love but somehow we get caught up in the busyness of life and forget to do those things that make us feel love and joy.

Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.

Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.

-Ludwig van Beethoven
