The best music is the music you like. Music emotes (gives expression to emotions) love, joy, peace, sadness, excitement, contentment, and motivation. With deeper understanding of music comes a more lavish appreciation of and a fascination with music. Students and adults who understand music theory can explore the deeper concepts in music, and therefore a world is opened to them that creates a lifetime of curiosity and wonder. Music is the one language everyone understands.
