Music Monday--What is Your Favorite Kind of Music?

This is one of those questions that I get asked by students on a regular basis.  Whenever they hear that I am a music teacher (or sometimes even if I don't say that), I get that same question I have answered for years--what is your favorite kind of music?

This used to be an easy question to answer.  Growing up, I only listened to oldies and movie musicals.  And I finally added Broadway musicals to the list.  My favorites were Judy Garland, Andy Williams, and Petula Clark.

Then once I was exposed to Phantom of the Opera on Broadway in high school, music theatre music took over.  I loved Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman, Michael Ball, and I loved to watch the Tony Awards (try to explain that to a student!).

Well, I had been against country music for so long, but I made the "mistake" of teaching about a country musician one day, and the rest is history.

And now I go to Bonjovi concerts?  I did last year.  It is difficult to define my music style, isn't it?

See, I can get through a music post without mentioning Taylor Swift!  (Oops, I just mentioned her!  Oh well!)

  1. I love different genres too, but my main interest is in symphonic & gothic metal. I have a band called "AnzeriA" since 2009. You can check it here:
    I also sometimes like and even want to perform blues / R&B style of music.
