Go into detail on why you love music as a career.
I have always enjoyed the music that seems to constantly flow into my head. Even as a child I used to be preoccupied with the beauty of the music that I was hearing, even though I had never heard it. I have always wanted to write music but never had the time. But now, in retirement, I’m writing down some of the music that has come into my mind recently. I have lots to learn, and in many ways, I wish I could have begun earlier, but I am enjoying the journey.
