Thanks for sharing, I was fully expecting a long introduction to a fantastic course, followed by all the pricing. I can't say how glad I am that you didn't. I'll be back again to visit, and send a few others too.
I'm a music teacher in Bimringham UK, and while I've come across the idea of synesthesia before, I'm not sure that your conclusion that all great composers had the condition/ ability, is justified.
My understanding of synesthesia is a vivid crossing of the senses, to the extent that some 'sufferers' could not carry out everyday activites, for e.g. because of visual colours/ images resulting from sounds that they heard.
On the other hand, I do think that the ability to connect across senses can be developed.
I learnt how to do this when studying "word painting" of some great composers in school, but I don't think that this is synesthesia. Anyway, I agree with much of what you say, and hope to hear more when I have time.
