Why Music Matters

I have placed a copy of Dr. Karl Paulnack’s “Welcome Address” to the parents of incoming students to The Boston Conservatory in 2004 on my “Media” page.

I came across this speech towards the beginning of 2009 while taking a Psychology of Music course at BYU. At the time I was struggling with questions like “Why should people care about my music? Why should people pay me to perform for them or teach them, especially in difficult economic times such as these?” This speech provided some very insightful answers to these and many more questions that struggling musicians may come against as they learn musical skills that society may not seem to hold in high esteem.
