Leon Bostein
As a music education major, it is no secret that I find music to be the utmost influential art form to affect humanity. There are so many different elements music brings to the table that can impact people in various ways. Music simultaneously imitates the real world while also lighting up the world within the interpreter.

To list a few, the blues, hip-hop, and classical are just three musical genres that can make an observer feel something by simply listening.
