First, you need a beat.
anything from a drum beat
to a finger tapping on a table.

Next, you need an instrument.
A saxophone,
a piano,
a guitar,
or even your voice will do.

Now, find a tune.
If it's a popular tune,
If it's a made-up tune
or an improvisation,
even better.

Finally, you start to play.

But, wait!
I forgot.

You need to feel the music.
You need to breathe with it,
move with it,
take it all in.

That's the mark of a true musician.

I love the final stanza.. how the reader interacts with music as a living entity.
