Music is an art form that triggers our feelings in different ways. The soul of music comprises of rhythm, pitch, texture, timbre, and dynamics. Music is used in different forms and varied sectors and the results are beyond one’s understanding.  In today’s culture, music is a large part of our lives. Music is an instant mood lifter. It touches the soul and helps you connect with people. It heals one’s mind. Music takes care of mental needs. It helps in overcoming disabilities of any form. Most people like music, but some love it and some live for it. When someone becomes a musician they learn many things that non-musicians would never know. Not everyone has the drive to be a musician. Musicians express their feelings in their music. Music is an art, musicians are the artists that bring that art to us.

CEO of Fragment Muzik, Edward ‘Napoles’ Grullon, an artist who ponders the music with a deeper appreciation, more feeling, and do all for the love of it. Dedicating countless hours of practicing and performing to his art. Musicians are born just like anyone, but somewhere they notice something happening in their heads, like an inner orchestra that begins to play. It begins with one or more instruments, ringing distinctly and clearly inside their ‘third ears’. With time, this develops into a need to express that what is being played in their heads outside their heads. They become a player. So, as Napoles did. He was blessed with this art of nature, and from a young age, he was attracted to music. The first award he grabbed motivated him to this career path.
