Music isn't just background noise to you; it's an enjoyable aspect of your life. You want to create pieces that resonate in you and others whether it's through playing instruments or singing.
 
Prog Rock has produced artistic zeniths like Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and cringe-worthy, embarrassing lows like Emerson, Lake and Palmer's “Love Beach.” Learn the origins of this peculiar and oft-maligned musical expression, trace its evolution, go in-depth on key bands like King Crimson, Genesis and Yes, and rediscover the albums of its heyday. Learn about its commercial demise at the hands of disco, punk and new wave and how Prog Rock’s adventurous spirit is alive now.
