The Importance of Music

The Importance of Music

This article is different from the others I have written in the past and posted to our Newspaper. Music: it’s such a simple concept. A simple word. A simple thing that you can just look up and have. But, what a lot of people don’t realize is how important music can be to some people, and just how much music means to some people. Music is an escape for a lot of people. It is the only peace they get. Whether that peace isn’t there because of stress, family, themselves, mental illness, or even just schooling. Music is their peace. Music is a peace for so many things and music is such a powerful force.
Music in a way develops societies. Music develops a community that you can feel safe in and it is a conversation starter. Music is something that can get stuck in your head and annoy you. There are so many versions and cultures and subcultures of music that there is something for everybody out there. For some people, finding where they belong in those cultures is very important. Even if there are more than one place that they belong concerning music, and as sad as it is, a lot of people hate on other music that isn’t what they listen to. Music should be something that brings us together, not tear each other apart. Music is so important to me and many others. I listen to almost all kinds of music. If you listen to something I don’t, oh well. I’ll listen to it with you as long as it’s your music.
Writing music is just as important as listening. Finding what you’re passionate about and being able to surround yourself with music that lets that flourish and expand. Working and being able to listen to music that lets you work even harder. Makes you work better. There is no right way to find your music or to make your music. There is no right or wrong way to music. Music is just so universal that there isn’t any wrong possibility of it out there. Music could never be wrong, or right in ways. Music is just there; it is something you can’t fully hate and maybe not even fully understand.
Personally, music is music. If it has lyrics that I can relate to or vibe to, then I will listen to it. I don’t write music anymore, but when I did it did not have a beat to it. I wrote the lyrics and left it up to whoever was reading the lyrics for whatever genre they wanted it to be in. It helped me a lot to make my music that way. I left it up to whoever wanted to read it, or well, sing it. In doing that, the genre fluctuated. It saddened me at first, but then I realized my music could be there for anybody who needed music and wanted to listen to stuff with those lyrics.
Music is super important for so many people, it helps them go through things and it helps people learn. Music is so many things all at once, and it’s there all the time whenever you need it.
