We return with another poem from Shar Music’s® own Poetjournalist-in-Residence, Aaron Dworkin. Aaron is an acclaimed musician and best-selling author who’s been kind enough to join us here at Shar Music, and to share his poems on the topic of stringed instruments. Today’s poem is “Discovery."
Working in tandem with Shar Music, Aaron has created a group of poems that relate to classical music, his own life and experience, and the universal process of making art. Aaron Dworkin is a Poetjournalist, Social Entrepreneur, Performing Artist, Author, Filmmaker, Philanthropist, and Professor of Arts Leadership & Entrepreneurship at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
In the weeks ahead, we’ll be sharing Aaron's poetry frequently on our Shar Music Blog, our YouTube Channel and our Social Media accounts, so be sure to stay tuned!
