“What drew us?” – John Steinmetz (Quote of the Week)

I don’t think any child is initially drawn to music by the pleasures of note accuracy or good rhythm. What drew us? There was some other thing, something about wonderful sounds, amazing feelings, maybe the physical pleasure of working the instrument. Isn’t it sad that we don’t talk about these things more? – John Steinmetz
