Music penetrates in many aspects of our daily life. Nearly everyone enjoys music, whether by listening to it, singing, or playing an instrument. Music is “the art of combining tones to form expressive composition; any rhythmic sequence of pleasing sounds.”, it gives us a way to express ourselves and shows the real part of ourselves inside that we don’t usually let others see. Music is important in our world, as well as in our lives.
In downtown Columbia, Missouri, we can see musicians playing all the time at weekends. There is a special band in downtown you may see every Saturday that play all kinds of music from 2p.m. to 2a.m. They call themselves Band Brothers. Lionelle Miller, the keyboard player and his brother, Michael Miller, the guitar player are the founder of this band. Another Michael, Michael Del Rosario, joined the band three years ago.
Lionelle Miller works at university hospital, Michael Miller is a fund raiser and Michael Del Rosario is a laboratory technician. None of them are professional but they keep playing music for many years. “We love music from the bottom of our heart.” Michael Miller said.
