I believe music is our salvation to get through our day, week or weekends. Without music how could you go through life? Music to me is a beautiful thing because there are so many different kinds of music from all over the world. Music can just start out as a sound, a clap, noises you hear or a voice singing. Music is in the elevators, the movie theater, restaurants, the parking lot, our home and everywhere we go. Music makes us focused, happy and most importantly it saves our lives.

I am a huge fan of music. I can listen to it all day and everyday. I have grown up listening to all kind of music since I was a little kid. Sometimes little kids learn new things through music. When I was in kindergarten and pre school I learned some words by using music, such as making beats or trying to make it rhyme. For example, I would break down or sound out a long word in a beat to learn it by clapping my hands. Now, as an older person I sometimes use music to focus on studying, organizing myself or there are some people like me who can’t really work out unless they have some sort of motivation and music works out so great. All types of music can help people focus on what they want or need to do.

These days people are always stressed, that they just want to disappear or breakdown. Music makes most of our stress go away. I’ve seen people go in their car or go home and put on loud music on something that describes what they are feeling or what makes them happy or relaxed. Music helps us clear our soul because, it can bring a smile or laughter to ourselves that can help us forget what we were even stressed about.

Without music I believe there would be more suicidal people because of all the stress we get from work, school, money, family issues or anything that can make us feel so depressed to the point where we can’t handle it anymore. People tend to think their lives are over and no one can understand them. But there are all types of music from all over the world that can make us feel better. Also, our world would be a boring place without it and people couldn’t share different kinds of music.

Music is so interesting and exciting when it is very different and without that happiness we get from music our society or world would be different. Dancing would probably never have existed without music, there wouldn’t be much inspiration or motivation to do certain things and music can give us excuses to go out and enjoy ourselves. Music is very necessary in our world and lives.
