The powerful study of music

Sheet music

Nietzche once said, “without music, life would be a mistake”. Music is not simply just a group of sounds, but much, much more. Music is a way to express fear, gladness, celebrate accomplishments, dance, and more. Music is a way to better understand cultures and nations, times, and traditions. But in your daily life, why should you make room to study music? Here are a few reasons why you should make music a priority.

Music impacts mental health

Whether you show interest in playing an instrument, singing, or just listening to music, it can have positive results in your life. Research has shown that music generates a great sense of well-being in people and helps their cognitive development. For example, melodies from classic wind or string instruments bring a sense of peace, harmony, and calm.

Jonathan Burdette, professor of neuroradiology notes that “nothing activates the brain like music”. In other words, if you accompany daily activities with music, your brain will be more capable of developing tasks with creativity and enthusiasm. If you suffer from insomnia, music can help you to calm your anxiety and rest better.

Learning music is essential

Becoming a musician like Dan Avidan is not easy! Studying music is a mix of art and science, and requires great effort but also creativity. Even if you don’t feel very musical, you can still encourage your children or friends to get into music. Try out a class or two with an instrument that always interests you.

Learning music is like learning a new language or practicing a new discipline. You may not be an expert at the beginning but learning from an expert can help you to discover your capacity to make music and grow.

Music is, especially for kids, it is an opportunity to develop a musical taste, a closeness to art, and discipline, and to be away from screens for a few more hours each week.

The Internet also is a great source to learn about music, explore new genres, or just watch operas or musicals. For example, you can learn about a new musician or explore music in other countries with just one click.

Music as a career

Music is not only a hobby, it can also be a career. Not all people are capable or show interest on become professional musicians. However, if it does interest you, it’s important to remember that there is a whole market dedicated to music. It is an industry of constant growth and huge variety. Research has shown that the music sector in the US has almost 2.5 million jobs.

You don’t have to be a musician necessarily to form part of the music industry. Music requires a lot of different professions to get albums out, or on the radio, or concerts coordinated, for example. You also don’t have to be a professional musician to share your talent with others and teach children or youth how to play piano or guitar, or how to sing.

However you participate in music will enrich your life!
