The Importance of Music
I think music is an olive branch toward the global understanding of human nature and mankind because it allows you to express your feelings, which not even words can convey. Music is a way for people to show emotion and really experience something to put them in a good mood. Whenever I listen to music, I can relate to it and I just feel very relaxed. I can not imagine life without music, for people understand each other better with it. There are so many types of music as well, to fit any personality and it can even inspire people.
Music is a part of everyone’s life. There are so many components in music. Whether it is the pitch, melody, harmony, tone, rhythm, or dynamics, I find all music to be a piece of art. Some studies even say that different types of music can eliminate stress and pressure, and I think this is definitely true because when I have a headache, I usually listen to soft music and it sort of relives the pain. And I guess this is why music can be played everywhere. While doing homework, while reading, cooking, running, etc.
Studies also show if music were to continue in a child's life in school they would do better academically than a student who did not take any music classes, that's because music helps develop the brain. Personally, I also think you can use creativity in music and really find out what kind of person you are and your interests. Music can also be cultural and that may be an important factor of your life. Overall, music plays a huge role in society life and living life without music, is like not living at all.
