Music is not just a passion, hobby, or pastime, it is a lifestyle.  Music is the vibration of the building blocks that make us, it's a catalyst to experiencing emotion that moves us, it is an expression of life itself.  Playing a musical instrument is not only an entertaining and enjoyable hobby, but can be therapeutic as well.  There is no feeling like playing the frantic notes in an orchestral crescendo,  the sweeping phrase of an epic solo on stage, or just jamming along to a song with some friends.
