  2. Classical Music Discussion
    I want to open up an interesting topic for discussion. That is the why of music. I believe that today the role of music is very different than just 50 years ago. Mainly resulting from globalization and the internet, I see that music has become a medium of gaining cultural identity in the face...

    Is it just anyone who knows how to play an instrument? Do they have to like it? Can it be someone who can't hardly pick up their instrument but loves it like the world? Can it be someone who's skills rival that of any famous classical composer, but who loathes it more than anything? How do you...
