During my childhood and adolescence I was exposed to many different styles of music that transported my mind to many different places and situations. Learning about how and where all these different practices took place contributed enormously to what I have achieved as a person. For example, in 1999 I had the opportunity to tour Brazil with a Tango group. During that tour I was invited to play Bossa nova with native musicians, and because I was exposed to this style and learned this music from authentic performances, I was able to communicate with the band even though I could not speak Portuguese at that time. Without the music education I had received through my teachers and colleagues, I would never have had that opportunity. Music brought to me the possibility of engaging in an interchange of ideas that was the result of what David Elliott calls flow, this term relates to the application of our conscious powers and knowings effectively in goal-directed action.
Music can depict a culture as no other discipline can because it reveals something about how people relate to each other. When we play music we interact with each other in a cooperative way. Each culture understand this interaction in a different way that relates to its history.
