Music, More Than Just Notes

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”- Plato

It has been said that music is one of the most powerful outputs in life. When we think about the variety of music that we listen to, we realize that we didn’t choose the music and that the music chose us. We all have songs that we love so much that we jam out in our cars to sometimes (I am guilty of that). Have you ever wondered why you remember all the lyrics and beats to a certain song more than something that you need to know for work/school? The answer is very simple. We remember because we can relate to what the song means (one song can mean something different to every individual). Take Whitney Huston when she sang the National Anthem at a past Super Bowl. She took everything that everyone was feeling at the time with all the conflicts that was going on in the world and pored her heart out into the stadium and into our hearts.

Goal: Go ahead, sing at the top of your lungs (we all do it at times when we are driving, but stop when we are at a traffic light). Dance when no one is watching. Beat on your steering wheel with the music. Laugh, cry, make the connection. Pour your heart out into it. Write your own lyrics. Sing to the mirror with your brush. Embrace your taste of music no matter what somebody says about it.
