Einstein the Violinist
Albert Einstein was a physicist, but he was not only that. He also played the violin and the piano and was not only wholeheartedly devoted to both, but rather good at them too, which is not only interesting as a tidbit of historical celebrity gossip, but might also hold insights into some of the possible roles that music can play in a persons life.
Even if it is not necessarily what we have chosen to make our name or living on, playing an instrument can be a powerful force in our lives and an undying source of joy and inspiration. Einstein himself was quoted as saying that he got most joy in life out of music. His wife has told stories of his work habits, that while working on one of his theories he would often take breaks to play the piano or violin, after which he would be energized and full of new ideas.
There is undeniably something meditative about playing an instrument. Perhaps by following in the footsteps of one of the twentieth century’s greatest minds and making our music and our instruments a pivotal part of our daily lives, we might just tap into the creative genius in each of us.
