Music’s nature is an auditory self-expression
of one’s feelings, thoughts and observations. The sound to Art’s sight.
The word originates from Greek, mousike, "art
of the Muses".
In any culture in the world, everyone responds
to music. Adults, children, animals, plants, everything alive responds to music. Music’s melody and
harmony stimulates our emotions, while its verse can affect our thoughts, beliefs or ideas. Its purpose is
not solely for pleasure or entertainment, for music’s voices and rhythms can have special healing and spiritual
qualities. Whether we listen to Classical or Country, Big Band or Ballroom, Rock or Reggie, our souls really
lift upon the wings of music. Music is something that answers to the soul. It can negate or neutralize
the pain. And high artistic merit is often not required to heal. Even a simple pentatonic
progression, with emotion, can have a calming, healing effect.
