I was doing a phone interview the other day and the following thought occurred to me. It’s a fact that there are many more male musicians than there are female musicians – I am excluding singers from this….
Is it possible that more males are drawn to making music because it seems harder for them to express their feelings in words? It seems to me that females are usually more in touch with their feelings and are more at ease talking about them. I know that I myself was drawn to music because it gave me a chance to express emotions I couldn’t otherwise express.
I have never read anything about this subject, and it seems to me it would make an interesting study.
