Should we take music seriously?

How serious do we need to be?

Well, I think everyone can agree that a certain levity is needed when going about music. It can’t be serious all the time.

When you get down to it, music is play. I think that’s why most of us start playing instruments in the first place. It looks so fun!

And just maybe, paradoxically, by being transparent with our playfulness, the music has room to show its own seriousness, its own gravitas. Music has so much passion and emotional weight already. Why do we need to constrict it with our own graveness?

Should we take music seriously?

Is that even a serious question?
