"Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosphy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents."
– Ludwig van Beethoven
Music touches the human spirit in a unique and very personal way. From the simple drumbeats that imitates our heartbeat to the intricate notations from musical geniuses like Mozart, to the long-remembered songs of our childhood – music elevates our souls and conveys emotion in a sensory experience like no other medium.
Singers, songwriters and symphonies – they all share their artistry in unique ways and along our journey through life, each of us will discover a deeper meaning in the music that touches our soul.
The Music of Our Lives
As children, we learn many valuable lessons through songs. Most of us learned the letters in the alphabet by singing it. Our birthdays were celebrated with song before we could blow out the candles on the cake. Important moments are almost always accompanied by songs – from joyful wedding marches to sorrowful music played at funerals as a final farewell to beloved friends and family.
At the Grace Dee May Museum, we invite you to remember the music of your life as you view our collections of musical instruments, sheet music, books on music, posters, photos, and vintage radios and antique victrolas.
