Did you ever think about what would life be without music? Well, I did and I think that the world would be a very quiet place. In my opinion music is something extraordinary; it is what makes humans human. Music is in a number of ways the fabric to our lives and the definition of society. It can be described as one of the most treasured human experiences, everyone enjoy music and this becomes more apparent in every significant event from weddings and funerals to graduation ceremonies formal inaugurations and birthdays. No matter what it is used for, music is the perfect art and our lives would be incomplete without it. The ambience in any room can be set just by adding some music. There are many different styles, something for every occasion as it is very soothing and relaxing which can make our bad days better. Every culture makes music and every past culture has created music too. Studies show how music affects many parts of our brain very deeply. Music creates strong feelings and a lot of memories. The more we learn about music the more we will be able to say what we want in music and also understand better what it means to be human. Listening to music has proved to be like therapy for our souls. Music plays a great role in our lives; it has a lot of benefits. Read on to learn more about the benefits of listening to music:
Music is important for creativity: Music is considered to be one of the best ways to enter a вmind- wandering modeв which was discovered by neurologist Marcus Raichle in 2001.


This is the state the brain enters into most easily and music is one of the most effective ways of allowing you to enter this mode. Music fuels the mind and thus it fuels our creativity. A creative mind allows to make great discoveries and innovations. Music makes learning more fun and memorable: Music can make learning more fun and engaging which is a great tool for memorization. Music can help kids keep focus and remember things they learnt for a long time. Far from being a distraction it helps people remember better. Evidence that music helps with memory has led to researchers to study more about the impact of music on people who suffer memory loss. Music is a universal language: Musicians claim that with music you can communicate across cultural and linguistic boundaries in ways that you cannot do with ordinary languages. It has the ability to evoke deep feeling at the core of the shared human experience. Music brings people together: Although music can certainly be played and listened to alone it is a powerful social magnet. There is something about listening to music or playing it with other people that makes you feel connected with those around you. The more we use music to bring us together the more potential for increased empathy, social connection and cooperation.


Music reduces stress and anxiety: Research has shown that listening to music at least music with slow tempo and low pitch can calm people down even during highly stressful and painful event. It also has the ability to help with pain management for example during childbirth. 1. Music is the Key to Creativity. Music fuels the mind and thus fuels our creativity. A Creative mind has the ability to make discoveries and create innovations. The greatest minds and thinkers like Albert Einstein, Mozart, and Frank Lloyd Wright all had something in common in that they were constantly exploring their imagination and creativity. Listening to instrumental music challenges one to listen and tell a story about what one hears. In the same sense, playing a musical instrument gives you the ability to tell the story without words. Both require maximum right brain usage which not only exercises ones creativity but also ones intellect. The strength of all the Arts including writing, painting, dance, and theater have the ability to create a similar effect. 2. Music makes Education more enjoyable. Music can be very engaging in the classroom and is a great tool for memorization. IБm sure if more teachers used song to teach the multiplication tables, kids would retain that information much quicker.


My spanish teacher in 10th grade used a song to teach us the past tense endings and even today, I havent forgotten the song. ItБs as if she imbedded it in my mind and now I will never forget it. Besides the obvious, Music teaches us self discipline and time management skills that you cannot get anywhere else. When you study an instrument on a regular basis you work on concrete ideas and take small steps to achieve larger goals. This way of thinking organizes the wiring in your brain to start looking at Learning in a new light. In raising children, Music education can be used to keep kids focused and keep them off the streets. Instead of running around and causing mischief, your child may be practicing piano or rehearsing music with friends. Unfortunately, some forms of music can influence children in negative ways. It is well known that music has a power to influence the way we dress, think, speak, and live our lives. Profane and violent lyrics can have a negative influence on children. Looking back at my High School days, I notice that I followed the herd when it came to listening to Hip-hop and doing things that were БcoolБ to look tough and be like the БGangstaБ image that was portrayed. When I got to college, I realized how much it pervaded my lifestyle and when I got into Jazz, my entire lifestyle began to change.
