<div><span style="font-size: small; color: #0000ff;"><em><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Music is thriving</strong>&nbsp;</span><br /></em></span><br />There's more amazing music being made today than ever before in human history. There's more diversity. There's more risk taking. There's more virtuosity. There's more people of all ages making more music in a day than all the people in the world were making combined 50 years ago. Anyone can record radio ready music on inexpensive home recording studios or their computer. Is it all great? Nope. Is it all the stuff you hear on radio or being mass produced by the labels? Hell no. Music is being made and performed in every city around the world in homes that surpasses the sliver of music that is mass marketed. It's there if you care to look for it. <br /><br />Music will never die. <br /><br />If all commerce was removed from the music world tomorrow, there'd still be millions of musicians making music anyway because guess what? They're already doing just that now. People who make music do it because they have no choice. It's impossible NOT to make and create music for real musicians and writers. If all the instruments and devices and tools disappeared from the face of the earth, people would still be humming songs, clapping their hands, banging rocks together and making music. Music is always with us as long as we're breathing. It's not going anywhere. It will NEVER die. Tell the scare mongers to bugger off.&nbsp;<br /><br />The next time you're making music, try doing it without a thought about record labels and radio stations and My Space friends and doomsayers who want us to fear the end. Instead, passionately rip into your soul and produce the art in your heart. Don't hold back. Don't try and please others. Don't be afraid you're not good enough or you're doing it the wrong way. Make your music without fear. Then, share it with others without fear. If you do, you'll realize how true all my points above are. If you do, you can join the global musical chorus. If you do, you can single handedly take back the music from those who make a living predicting its demise. If ALL of you do it, we can shut them up once and for all. <br /><br />But that's just my opinion. I could be right. <br /><br /><span style="color: #ff0000;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Learn, Succeed, Thrive. We're All In This Together!</em></span><br /></span><br /></div>
