Why are some people musical, while some are not.?
I was thinking about this, for some time. Let me add, I hope the title, does not cause offence to anyone. I am asking out of pure honesty. Some people are very musical, while others have no musical ability at all. I always wondered why. One theory I have, tells me that whatever part of the brain that controls music, won’t work for some people. However, I have found that people who claim not to be musical, will listen to music and enjoy it. The well known Irish musician, Professor Micheal O’ Suilleabhain, believes it has to do with our forefathers. He says, if they were not musical, chances are, that those who follow on won’t be musical either. He is of the opinion, that it simply has to do with genes. Here is another view which I heard some days ago, and led to me starting this debate. Someone told me, that the music has to come from both sides of the family, for a person to be musical. Let me add again, I don’t want to say too much in this post, in case of offending people. Does anyone have better views, on this topic.
