There are so many ways to "study music." You can do it by sitting down to practice your instrument, enrolling in a course online or in-person, or even breaking down a piece that you love in the context of a podcast you just so happen to host.

For our first-ever livestreamed taping, Mahea and Carter sat down with author, educator, and doctoral fellow, Ethan Hein to discuss "Songs That Made Me Want to Study Music."

In the episode, we talk about how great instrumentalists know how and when to play supporting roles, what discovering music was like in a world before the internet, how the world's highest earning musician made my co-host who she is today, and so much more.

Themes and Variation is presented by Soundfly, a music education website changing the way we build our creative skills.
