Music surpasses culture, language and countries and uses emotions to connect audiences from around the world. Music is doesn’t discriminate or hate and is used around the world to spread messages about what is important in everyone’s lives. Music speaks to everyone and that is what makes it so important as an experience to learn and share as well as admire. Music is the most consumed source of media for people of all ages and surrounds the lives of people from every part of the world.
Today music works to bring generations and families together. A common passion for a certain style or artist connects families. Around the holidays this is especially true. Whether you love or hate the persistent Christmas music that plays wherever you go this time of year, I think everyone can agree that Christmas wouldn’t be the same without it. From carolers to holiday concerts, music has become an important part of the holiday.
Playing an instrument or singing together is a perfect way to unite the family or share in the fun with friends. Collaborating with others through music is a great way to connect to each other and socialize at any age. This also creates lasting memories and bonds between people.
Music in any capacity also as the unique ability to make us feel. Even if a singer is performing in a different language, there is an undeniable way in which the meaning is conveyed. Music is all around us. From the alarm clock in the morning, in our cars as we drive, in the stores and restaurants where we shop. Music really is the soundtrack to our lives and everyone is immersed. Music is able to bring us to tears, give goose bumps, and inspire.
