Thanks, Pachabel Pachabel's canon in D always motivates me to do good deeds without an incentive. I know this is small but, I listened to it before I went to the grocery store.

i love this

David Who? from Nebraska FEBRUARY 14, 2014
I love all genres. Country, thrasher, screamo, dubstep, hiphop, pop, rap, 80's, 90's...anything really. Music has always been like a friend to me. I could relate to it.

My husband and I are folk music singers, and we perform songs that have been in existence in some form or another for hundreds of years! It is the music of the people, of their joys and struggles and ordinary moments. Music is a part of our humanity, an expression of our most raw emotions that go beyond words. I believe music is truly great when it is an honest, authentic expression of those emotions.

Because I have composed symphonies, concertos and string quartets, I have a deep connection to the idea of Great Music. The goal is human joy. Joy is both a perception of and a response to beauty. All Great Music contains beauty, a beauty which is recognized across cultures and across centuries. This is why most Pop Music cannot be considered "Great". Most Pop music is tied to one decade or two decades. Bach's music still gets us going 300 years after it was composed. We can only create Great Music when we look into ourselves, and find joy, and learn to express our joy.
