In a way, we are all born in cages, some larger than others, some more heavily fortified against escape and/or intrusion.
In my experience of music the biggest cage took the form of accepted "rules" governing music theory.  Early on it seemed clear to me that this discipline was attempting to tell me how I should hear music when, in fact, I did not hear it that way.
I clearly said, "No, thank you."
