It was a wonderful experience growing up in [a musical] environment . . . having music constantly—either being practiced, studied, researched, or just playing in the background. It was just something that was always part of our environment. So whether you’re consciously listening to it, or just are aware that it’s there, you’re soaking it in, and soaking it up. —Sara Caswell
