What Does It Mean To “Speak Music”?

For many people I’ve met, music is an abstract, ephemeral experience shrouded in mystery. Musicians often seem like shamanic specialists, conjuring sounds through some arcane and guarded secret technique to deliver a sort of sonic magic. This magic can seem to control our emotions and move our bodies like marionettes, sometimes almost against our will.

But this is no mysterious craft. Music is not much different than English or Chinese or Spanish… it’s a language. It’s a tool for communicating. 

And like English or Chinese or Spanish, anyone can learn to speak this language. 

There are 5 basic “parts of speech” you need to know if you want to speak music. This manifesto explains them. 

If you’ve ever wanted to know more about what’s going on in the mind of a musician, read this manifesto.

If you’ve ever wanted to hear music on a deeper level, read this manifesto.

If you’ve ever wanted to infuse your work and life with more creativity, this manifesto will help you do just that.
