Spread the love

There are few things in the world that can improve someone’s quality of life as easily as good music. Aside from basic human necessities, music is an affordable and simple way to bring beauty into our every day lives. It’s more than a fun diversion. Music can help people heal, help childhood development, and more.

Music Relieves Stress

When people are faced with hard times, their lives tend to lose any glimmer of hope. It doesn’t matter whether their troubles are financial, medical, or dealing with grief. Music has real healing power. From classical melodies to catchy pop tunes, music can take your mind away from your troubles. There’s a reason why hospitals and nursing homes around the country invite volunteer musicians and singers to give concerts to their residents. There’s no cheaper way to inspire hope to the distraught. It reminds them that, in spite of their suffering, there are still things beautiful and worth living for.

Music Inspires Children

Studies have shown time and again the playing and listening to music helps growing children. Young musicians have benefited from better languages skills and higher test scores. On top of that, exposing your child to music doubles as valuable cultural education, deepening their appreciation for the arts.

Musicians can also influence and inspire children in more ways than you can possibly imagine. And if you will talk about very influential artists of this generation, there is probably no one more stellar than Taylor Swift. If you are a mum of a Swiftie, I am betting they are trading their Christmas and birthday gifts just to get their hands on Taylor Swift tickets for her much talked about Eras Tour concert.

Music Unites People

When a community begins to lose the threads that bind people, music can help restore them. There’s nothing more likely to gather people together than concert in a public park or a downtown block. In 2011, Sing For Hope sponsored Pop Up Pianos in New York, where they placed pianos all over the City for the public to play. It was a great success that fostered the arts community. If you feel like your town needs morale booster, promoting one of these may be what you need.

If you’re looking for a way to give back to the community, then musical events are a wonderful option. Every city has local nonprofit groups that can benefit from time, donations, and musical talent to bring meaningful change to people’s lives. By getting your own children involved in lessons or attending events, then you are helping to bring culture and intelligence to a new generation. From expensive concerts to simple songs, music’s power can be used everywhere.

Mum’s two cents

Music has always been my go-to for whatever season I am at in life ~ it helped me deal with my loss when my parents passed on and also helps to keep their memories alive, it helps make the complexities of life a bit simpler and tolerable, and relaxes me whenever things seem too overwhelming. Music is one of the many things my dear father ingrained in us and I would love to pass it on to my little man.
