Guys: Howard Ho is a genius.
If you didn't know, now you know.
A musical theatre composer living in LA, I dropped Howard a random email after Google-stalking him. I'd just discovered his YouTube series dissecting the musical themes in "Hamilton" and how those themes create emotional impact. I was blown away.
Three months later we met when he was on a trip to NYC, and we vibed for hours. He's such an inspiration and creative person. And, superbly adept at describing dry theory concepts so that everyone can understand, so that we learn why they're important, so it's funny, and so it makes sense to adult brains.
Which is what we're all about.
Thanks for making me cry, Howard.
