    Though I have not read her works myself, I am sure she must have a fan or three on this board.

    Her two books, "Dragonsinger" and "Dragonsong" should be required reading for any musician. They put into words what those addicted to making music feel.

    Is that a good starting point, since I am new to her works?

    That is very sad news....She was a giant in the fantasy world. Her best works, imho, were the [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Dragonriders-Pern-Anne-McCaffrey/dp/0345340248"]Dragon riders of Pern series. [/ame] I would start there.
