Things I love. (9)

I love the theory of music. I study it on my own. I take the pieces I am playing or singing, limiting myself to masterworks of many eras, and study intently how music is possible in some places but not others. I read texts on music theory. Not often, but often enough to keep me aware of what is taking place when I listen to a new piece. And it makes me admire composers so much more. I love music theory.

  1. You have a lot of interesting and varied "loves," Neal. All of this is helping us to get to know you better, which is a good thing.
    I believe you said there's a reason why you're developing this series, so I'll be interested to know what that is by the time you reveal it.

  2. Love it! This is off topic I guess but this is stirring some controversy apparently. (I'm not sure why)

  3. Neal, I have to say, I'm very inspired by this series and would love to borrow this idea for myself.

    I love that you're willing to share the many different things that make you, you. Thank you!
