"GREAT MUSIC is ...
Fire & Ice ... Tension & Release ... Dissonance & Consonance ... Rise & Fall ... Ebb & Flow ... Dark & Light ... Sound & Silence ... Beastly and Beauty ... Loud & Soft ... Long & Short ... Cacophony & Well-Ordered ... Complexity & Simplicity ... Dischord & Harmony ... Multi-timbre & Single Voice ... Hellish & Heavenly ... War & Peace ... Minor & Major ... Sad & Happy ... Infinitely Complex & Child-Like Simple.
"GREAT MUSIC touches ...
The mind, heart, soul, spirit, emotions, body, and is only a minute fraction of the master artist HE has allowed -- only beginning to part the curtains into His deep heart and varied nature.
"THANK YOU Almighty God, for such a truly awesome and amazing gift -- THE GIFT OF MUSIC.
"I beg you to please stir and prompt me daily to be worthy of such a treasured gift and earn from You the right to be called -- MUSICIAN."
