The Musician Says
Quotes, Quips, and Words of Wisdom
Complied and Edited by Benedetta LoBalbo

The Musician Says is an all-access backstage pass to the world of singers, songwriters, composers, and instrumentalists—all those who have a relationship with the Muse and have experienced the sacrifices, satisfactions, and frustrations it brings.

You'll hear from an eclectic group that spans centuries and genres, from Mozart to Mick Jagger, Louis Armstrong to Jay Z, Dolly Parton to Lady Gaga, and many more. Paired like unlikely guests at a backstage party, this unruly crew riffs about the blessings and curses of the musician's life.

This collection of intriguing and provocative quotations will remind anyone who has dreamed of playing Carnegie Hall (or maybe just mastering three chords) that the creative process bridges time and place, and that music is indeed a universal language.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
