“If music is the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it; that surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die.”
Quote by William Shakespeare
Music is a vital part of different moments of human life. It spreads happiness and joy in a person’s life. Music is the soul of life and gives immense peace to us. Music is different for every individual. For some music is a way of escaping reality, for some it is defining reality whereas for some it works as an unspoken voice. Music, unlike literature, has no language and unites people all over the globe.
Some people cannot function if they don’t listen to music one day. Hence, one can say that music does play an important role. Separating humans from art is a task in itself. Humans always desire to create art no matter in which form and music is just another form of art. Music appeals to man’s auditory senses, which is part of the five senses and thus has a massive impact on our everyday lives. Humanity’s interaction with sound and the auditory senses cannot be avoided. Man either creates music or is seen to take pleasure in it. Some people enjoy listening to music for fun or emotional needs. Some make music to tell a story to the world, whereas, some use music as a tool to send and spread social messages. Since music is not by language barriers, it has no boundaries and breaks the imaginary territorial lines we have drawn to separate one man from another.
Listening to and playing different tunes helps to de-stress, relax and it can also help to motivate in trying times. I believe music has the ability to convey all sorts of emotion. Whether the emotion is joy and happiness or sadness and despair through rhythms, harmonies and the lyrics music show it. The musical images that music and song are able to create are amazing. Music has the ability to transport back in time just like a time machine. It lets me revisit lost and forgotten moments in life. Music is the best way to be happy and busy in life.
Music is more than meditation and yoga, as it benefits both our body and mind. We can listen to music anytime throughout the day, listening to music in a moderate voice is a very good habit. Most research studies indicate that background music can potentially improve your learning outcomes affecting your cognitive abilities and mood. The most fascinating characteristic of music is that it brings certain capacities of humans in close coordination with each other. There is more to music than just sound. It is also melody and rhythm, and often words. Thus, when people listen to music, they move along with it, experience images, and feel emotions. Moreover, there is a significant social component in it. Due to the impact that music can have on people’s lives, it can be used in various areas. There are countless occasions of using music that people can come up with.
