Amelie Soundtrack and The Miseducation of Lauren Hill.
Fiona Apple and Esperanza Spalding (if I can put two)…
Piano, and/or anything with strings.
I performed a jazz ballad with my duo, and as we finished playing I noticed a woman in the front row mouthing along, and crying. Later, she told us how nostalgia overcame her, now that song reminded her of memories from her past, and that to me is the ultimate phenomena of music, that it not only transports us, but bridges the gaps between the experience of a single individual to another.
The only time I ever feel I’m making any sense at all is when I play; music, to me, is the ultimate form of communication.
First: yes! That’s awesome! Second: what would you like to achieve in learning music?
I love to write creatively; poems, prose, fiction, sometimes just random words I arrange until they look kind of interesting on the page. I used to dream of working for Disney as a kid, and I still draw and cartoon to this day. Also, chatting with family and friends, watching movies (Netflix!), jogging in warm weather and watching the rain fall during thunder storms.
Either The Princess Bride or Aladdin. I still wish I had a monkey.
Europe! But specifically Belgium, France and Spain.
