The students should be able to listen to music in school because it had good qualities about. I know that you don’t want to have music in the school, but some students need it. Music can be helpful for studying, for working, and sometimes for test taking.For this project on music I looked up reasons why we should have music. I hope that you will let us listen to music again.
I do believe that music clears my mind and makes me happy no matter what emotion I have before I listen. It has a certain superpower that can change someone from sad to happy or from depressed to proud in a few minutes if you listen to the right songs or genre. I know that just turning on a song that someone likes can make their day. Music has enough power to get someone to get up and dance and that is special. It can power athletes, singers, actors, doctors, teachers, and anyone. By just turning on a song that you like can put you in your own world where no one criticizes you or judges you for being you. Music is an escape from any problem in society and it is meant for everyone. “Music is just something that helps me escape and be totally free from everything.”-David Schmitt. This quote shows the true meaning of music. It shows how anyone can escape whatever troubles are happening by just hitting the play button on the phone that looks kind of like and arrow. The arrow pointing forward to a better
The topic of whether or not music has an impact on studying abilities is a conversation that many people have many different opinions on. In David Cutlers article, “Don’t Listen to Music While Studying”, he tries using evidence and reasoning to support, connect, and persuade his audience.
Being a music educator, I find chapter four of “Healing at the Speed of Sound” to be very relatable and inspiring. The many benefits of the methods Carl Orff and Zoltán Kodály are explained in this section which is always a hot topic for music educators. The benefits of music also go further into the brain to help shape and regulate emotion. Finally, the troubles of audio processing disorders, a subject I know little about, are expressed.
Studies have shown that learning how to read and play music, and even listening to music has an impact on the development of the brain. Music requires the use of both the left and right sides of the brain. After learning music I have noticed a change in the way I view music, my social skills and my thought processes. All of these things I believe are at least partially because of being in band and, they have all changed my life for the better
In Mark Edmundson’s Article “Can Music Save Your Life?” he discusses his theories on music. He goes through personal experience and later onto philosophical stances. Edmunds believes music, opens figurative doors, should inspire one to create, and above all preserves the listener.
Younger generations are inseparable from their headphone but when asked about music, they become soundless and grow distant. In “Can Music Save Your Life,” college professor Mark Edmundson describes his studies of how music affects the mind and concludes that music makes the generation feel like their voices are heard through the lyrics. He believes that people use music to escape our fears, reality, and to soothe ourselves. When individuals listen to a specific song that opens a door in their minds, they tend to listen to the song repeatedly until it has no effect anymore and the door closes. Music makes people search further into themselves and they begin to flourish through every lyric, every note, and every instrument played in the song.
The Philosopher Plato once said "Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.". I remember the first time that music had begun to resonate within me; i was four years old and my mother had bought me a book and attached to that book was a little toy piano. I loved that book. It had so many songs in it that i could learn starting with the classic "Old McDonald Had A Farm". I was only four at the time, but i remember feeling so in tune with the book and this little plastic battery operated piano that me being able to play this song, wasn 't a big deal. However, my mother, watching from the corner, thought otherwise. That Christmas, my mom had brought me a bigger, yellow plastic piano that came with an attachable microphone and a yellow plastic stool. Again, i was only four, but that little piano, microphone, and stool became my home.
Does the genre of the music affect the mood of the person(s) listening to it (New York, New York - Frank Sinatra, You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison - My Chemical Romance, and The Hills - The Weeknd)? I chose this experiment because everyone (or my mom) says rock makes you demonic, pop makes you happy, etc. and I knew that’s not the case. So, I decided to test it on an eighteen year old that happens to be my sister.
Introduction: Music. It speaks to us in certain volumes. It creates a deep neural connection within our minds. Certain songs awaken happy memories in our mind. It conveys our feelings for us when we cannot explain our emotions. For me, the songs that beam through my speakers helps my memory recall happy times where I did not have a care in the world. The only thing that mattered was the people with me and the emotions that I was feeling.
I am at my first stages in undertaking the large task of becoming a music therapist. I believe that music therapy is the use of music to obtain a non-musical goal. There are many steps in this process, such as evaluating the clients’ needs, obtaining a rapport, establishing long and short term goals, and learning the clients’ style, speed, and learning style. I believe that in music therapy, anyone that has a problem, being that of mental, physical or social nature, can prosper from the use of music. I believe that music is hardwired into everyone. For example, everyone (living) has a heartbeat, pulse, respirations, which all can be set to a rhythm or beat. When I think of someone’s cultural background I think of many different examples. For
What if there is one activity that can benefit students in every school across the nation? An activity that helps students to raise their grades and scores on standardized testing? An activity that allows students to form lasting friendships? An activity that will help students become more disciplined and confident? Would you let your child take that activity? It is very likely that you answered yes to one of these questions. Who doesn’t want the best for their children? Luckily, this “activity” is accessible almost everyone. Unfortunately, many schools will not make it a part of their curriculum. This “activity” is something that everyone is aware of, but easily neglected. This activity is music.
In this essay I will discuss the importance of following children’s interests, the stages of development and the importance of adult providing appropriate opportunities for the children to be creative. Also I discussed the benefit of music. Schemas form part of Piaget’s theory of cognitive development. Schemas are an organised way of making sense of experiences. While going through the different stages of development children will go through a stage of accommodation this is creating new schemas and adjusting old schemas as old schemas do not capture the environment correctly. ‘’Disequilibrium refers to the inability to fit new information into our schemas. When you come across information or experiences that do not fit into your current knowledge
In this literature review, five articles will be reviewed, on the effects of music on child development in early childhood. Comparing research on children who have been exposed to music in early childhood, the effect of music on the development of the baby in the womb, and children who have not been exposed to music. While also making reference to research on how music therapy affects children with Autism and the effects of music therapy in the treatment of children with delayed speech development.
