Introduction: Music is a way of communication. An average person spends several hours a day listening to music either from a library where they select tracks or from their surrounding such as games, television, radio or even other people singing. There have been a great amount of studies dedicated to the effects that music has on people and our society yet there is another important fact: music reflects us and our society as well. As human beings we take experiences, we build new concepts from our knowledge and create from there. Music is no exception, musicians sing about their lives and subjects of great matter to them.
It has the ability to bring me back to lost and forgotten memories in life. Music has the ability to convey all sorts of emotions. Whether that emotion is joy and happiness, or disappointment and despair. It is shown through the music’s harmonies, rhythms, and lyrics. The wonderful thing about music is that it affects people in many different ways.
Music also defines as pleasant sound (vocal or instrumental) that leads us to experience harmony and higher happiness (Mehta, Nikil. 15 November 2016). From my point of view music means melody made by instruments or anything that make sounds that tells heartfelt expression of your inner most feelings, thoughts, anger, happiness and pain of life. Not only that, but I also think that music speaks louder than words as powerful way to convey any messages that can be carried through various beats and words. In other words, music has different meaning and effects for every individual.
Music makes it whole again, in all its manifold emotionality." Music is known to calm us from our states of chaos allowing us to become in sync with our deepest emotions. Some people do not know how to release their emotions and therefore allow music to escape from the emotions it is hardest for them to
Although many refuse to acknowledge the significance of pop music, it has incited the spread of political messages, discussion of taboo topics, and popularization of unorthodox beliefs amongst the American public. Similar to satire, which utilizes humor to defuse the brunt of its criticism, pop music disguises risqué and mildly offensive comments with catchy and innocuous tunes. Furthermore, in the past 50 years, increased globalization has allowed these songs to play a bigger role in changing the prevailing beliefs of the general populace. Following the footsteps of trailblazers, including David Bowie and Madonna, a new wave of pop stars, from Macklemore to Beyoncé, began to realize the groundbreaking power of pop music. Some artists treat
However, as children develop, parents give careful consideration to the music and features that catch their children’s interests and captures their attention. Exposing children to different genres of music expands their knowledge and helps them begin to formulate what types of music they begin to relate to. Music gives children a chance to get away from what’s going on in their young lives. It is completely normal for teenagers to feel the need to use music as a distraction to block out their surroundings and allow them to focus on what inspires them. There is, however, a concern with the negative and damaging topics of hip hop and rap.
I have never had a specific category of music. If I have to choose, I would choose cheerful music. Music helps me in many ways in my life, such as escape from the routine of everyday life, to dance, to raise my self-esteem and other aspects. I dedicate many hours to music, I like to feel happy, that is why I listen to music moved and happy the longest. When I have a bad day it helps me to feel good, when I have a good day the music makes me feel even better.
There may not be music playing as a background in everyday life, as argued by the critics of musical scores, but without it, movies would not be as thought provoking or entertaining. It is a huge undertaking to compose and produce the writers’ and directors’ thoughts and feelings into music, but it can be masterfully done. Music that truly enables the audience to feel what the characters are feeling, and stirs some sort of emotion, is an invaluable aspect of the moviegoers’ experience. If a musical score is done well, it has the ability to leave a lasting impression long after the screen has gone
My dad always told me that music is beautiful because it was the sound of the world. My dad felt that music is in everything and you just have to put all the sounds together to make it harmonize with each other to sound like music. I thought that was beautiful the way he thought of music that way and I put that in consideration every time I play music. Also, creating music makes me feel more creative, when I learned how to play the piano over the summer it made me feel like an artist. I feel that I’m already pretty creative but playing an instrument can help me channel that creativity.
Music is easily accessible by all no matter the socio-economic standing, race, gender, or disability. Deaf people can feel the different vibrations while blind people can learn to play sheet music by hearing it played by others in person or by recording. Music is usually an escape for both artists and consumers alike. Music does not and never will have a singular intention or a singular demographic. Music for me was the interest that drew me to attend university in the first place.
