  We can only begin to move forward once we know where we come from.  

In my pathway as a music theorist and a piano performer, I found that the complex processes of the musical language held both the knowledge and the feeling of how to define the present state of being in relationship to the past and to the future. For example, a musical tone, or a phrase, constantly evolves in relationship to what precedes it and what follows it. This is also true when we study the development of musical systems across history.

This understanding helps us relate to our own truth to the extent that it allows us to reflect on where we stand in relationship to the past and to the future. We can only begin to move forward once we know where we come from, once we unravel the story.

This ability to move freely will call forth the birth of a renewed creativity.
