Music is part of our lives though sometimes we may never realize it. Even without realizing it, you will find yourself listening to music at one point or another in life. Music is a good way to describe items, people, places as well as other things that cannot be fully explained by words. It is a common practice for people to spend their free time listening to music and dancing to the tunes. Apart from entertainment, music can be a very important method for learning and should be integrated in school curriculums.
Below are some of the advantages of music:
- Music allows creativity
If you thought that having some good music is an easy task, then you need to try making one yourself. Coming up with good music requires creativity. It requires innovation and imagination. Playing the musical instruments too requires some sharp brain. It therefore allows one to enhance creativity and bring out the story in an interesting way.
- Music relaxes
There are different music genres. There is that soothing music that can relax your mind especially if you have had a busy and stressing day. Listening to music will help you forget everything. You can use music o find sleep when it seems impossible for you to get some. Research shows that moods and emotions are highly related to music.
- Music and education
Music makes learning interesting. It also makes it easy to remember what is learnt. It is highly engaging and easy to memorize thus can be of great importance if used in classrooms. Playing musical instruments can be a good way of helping students use their free time wisely.
- Music is a good way of bringing people together
Music is a unifying factor because it makes people identify with a group. People come together to paise, worship, enjoy their culture through dancing to their best tunes, get entertained and so forth. This therefore acts as a good ground to meet new friends, create more ties and therefore enhance peaceful coexistence and appreciation of one another.
There are many more other benefits you can obtain from listening to music but caution must be taken too. Not all music is good to the ears especially for children. You must control what children listen to because some songs work towards eroding morality and since a child may not be able to choose what is right or wrong, this will destroy his or her future because a habit once learnt may not be easily unlearnt. Children may also learn violent behavior from some music which they will later display to peers. Just like there are board games for adults and board games for kids, the same way there is music for kids and music for adults.
Reasons why people may miss on fun with music
Some people fail to have fun with others as they dance to their best tunes because of some reasons. Some people are more concerned about what others will say. They never want to appear silly in front of others and this curtails their fun. This is a poor attitude because people may never be interested in you anyway. Another problem is the fear of being imperfect. You probably do not want people to see your poor dancing skill or hear your weak voice. This should not be an issue. No human is perfect and there is more fun when you allow yourself to be imperfect. You also get to learn. You should never allow your life to get bored just because you have allowed people to determine your happiness. Life is more than that.
