Did you take music lessons in school? And if so, how did participation in that garage band, glee club or orchestra influence your career and outlook on life?The answers (scroll past "related stories" to read them) from lawyers with backgrounds ranging from amateur to professional musician are really great. Some talk about how music keeps them sane while dealing with the pressure of the billable hour, and others tell how the lessons they learned as musicians have been directly useful in the practice of law. This answer cracked me up:
Well, this one time, at Baptist School, we learned that all rock music uses “back-masking” and preaches satanism when played backwards. I didn’t heed their warnings though and I turned into a lawyer!Music teachers love this kind of article for sharing with principals and parents; I just sent a link to my sister!
