For many years music has been a major part of my life. It has always been something that moves me. The key part to this is I can listen to many different genres of music and due to my natural indecisive nature I don’t actually have a favorite. Each type of music that I listen to moves me in a different way.
Let me give you some background about me. I grew up with dance being a major contributor to my life. My parents told me that whenever music came on as a baby I would move to “my own rythym”, so this prompted them to place me in dance class. This was where I developed my rhythym. The fortunate thing was that I was gifted and could move to any type of rythym if I could hear it in the music.
So whether it was country or the blues I could always find a beat.
Once I reached age 5 I was introduced to African traditional rhythyms and ways to find out signals in the music to help you with movement. This is something that I believe many people should learn because the drum is the foundation of most music and it allows you to actually feel what is being played, so you can’t help but to move. As I continued to grow in dance class, my hearing of the “beat” crossed over into my regular life and I developed a love for all types of music.
Growing up both of my parents had an extensive music collection. My Mommy had her love of gospel music, so we listed to anything from spirituals to modern gospel music. The Old Man (affectionate term for My Father) listened to all kinds of music, however he had a record collection that was almost unmatched. So even hearing the crackle of the records was a part of the musical experience for me. He really enjoyed music from the 70s.
I always enjoyed live music, so that I could see all of the instruments and how they worked together. As I grew older, I embraced cassette tapes and CDs of course, but from time to time I still enjoy seeing someone perform live.
As an adult on any given day I will listen to The Blues, Hip Hop, Soul, Classical, Oldies, Rock N Roll, or even Trap Music. You name it, I have probably listened to it and enjoyed it. I frequent different concerts and music related events throughout the year, so why not share with you? In my adult life I have also had some experience in selecting artists for certain events in various cities.
Music moves me so much that I have decided to dedicate a segment of my blog to Music.
So this section “Music Moments with Misstakenid” will showcase my love for music.
I will be reviewing concerts, interviewing music artists and highlighting music related events in this segment. This will give me a chance to share my experiences with music related events.
