That's interesting. My guess is most of us start out at least with the goal of performing for others, but I believe music can be an end in itself - something we can conceivably enjoy - even if we never perform for anyone else.

The way people may read poetry and enjoy the imagery without reciting it for someone else to hear.

Even the challenge of learning music alone can be worthwile. And there's something that strikes me as maybe purer about accomplishing something without an eye to gaining the admiration of others.
