Music is many things for me. Inspiration, calmness, excitement and even prayer are among the things that music holds when I listen. Music allows me to express what lies in my heart and dwells upon my mind.
That through the music of man, everyone will learn to hear the music that surrounds and fills us. The natural music that is best heard in silence.
Perhaps eliminating greed and envy as those two seem to drive the abuses of mankind.

Too many to list but I will try. Been a Floyd fan since 69. Fell in love with the classics of Beethoven, Bach, Brahms as a child. The late, great, Stevie Ray Vaughn. Louis Armstrong. Miles Davis. I’ll add more later.
Many things. Perhaps simple feeling is the most inspiring.

I do not make and never have made my living from music. I’ve had many gigs but always had the proverbial day time job to pay the bills. This, I don’t believe I’m qualified to answer the question.
So far, I like it.
Being told all the sound gear is onsite then arriving and finding it’s not.
I attend certain events and venues where I know local musicians are playing. I’ve also provided free recording services to some in order to get their demo release.
Trends and tastes change over time. It’s hard to say what a musician should do to get their sound out to larger audiences. My only advice, be honest.
