THE FOUNDATION OF MUSIC
Music is a powerful tool that can be heard all over the world. It is used as a means of expressing emotions, overcoming obstacles, and establishing an identity as an individual and as a culture. I plan to create a program that includes music from different areas of the world along with music that was written over a range of a few hundred years. This program will be unique and with the pieces I select I will demonstrate to the audience how although all the pieces are different they share a very common foundation. This presentation will be beneficial primarily to people who are not expert in the field of music. These people will learn that although music may come from different places and even different times they all share a common foundation or sets of rules.
