Will I ever be able to sit down and write a perfect paper every time?
No. Though we sometimes get those lightning strike composition moments, for the most part our best writing is the result of multiple drafts with external feedback. Learning how to both maximize your writing strengths and work around your weaknesses is an important part of your journey as a writer.
Subject: Music Theory
Why do we so closely have to follow the rules of music theory when first learning it?
We have to follow the "rules," particularly with regard to voice leading and the like, first so that we can later stray from them (or break them) with purpose and knowledge.
Why is it important to study music?
Studying and understanding music--its history, structure, and context--gives us a glimpse into what makes humans so amazing. We have created a form of entertainment that is a language understood by everyone around the world, so it's almost like a glimpse into the infinite.
