Whenever I travel outside of the U.S., I'm always struck by the presence of American music, particularly our popular music. You hear it in hotels, clubs, on cruise ships, etc. People around the world respond viscerally to our music even if they're not English speakers. So on this week's Q2, we'll delve into the roots of American music and take a closer look at the movers and shakers that created its innovative sounds.

Long before I took my first piano lesson, I was drawn to music. Aside from the sound, I was moved by the effect I saw it having on those around me, especially in church. I was amazed at the gamut of emotions music evoked there, and this curiosity has led to a life-long relationship with music. To this day, I'm just as thrilled and appreciative when I hear incredible, inspiring music, whether it was written centuries ago or earlier this morning.
