The following writings try to describe my personal experience of music, and should not be taken as authoritative in any way. I’ve never been in a band. I did take piano lessons for about eight years and even joined a beginner’s voice class, so I’ve performed in front of people a few times with varying degrees of success. I know a bit about theory, a little about technique, a few choice cultural buzzwords, and an iota about the production and distribution of music combined.
But more than anything, I know something about being a fan, and I know how to write about things I love. So this is a long-winded way of explaining that I’m no expert and certainly not an insider. But if you’re still interested in anything I have to say, I’m glad you’re here.
