What is Music?

Music is a natural tool because it has no boundaries and is formally defined as the art of combining vocal and or instrumental sounds together to create musical notes as expressions. The word music is a noun that translates to musica in Latin and originated from the Greek word muse. Synonyms include melody, harmony, and song.

Music is composed of music notations that become sheet music.

Tempo is what keeps everything in sync and performing correctly with accuracy. This is the speed, or how fast, the beat is for a musical piece.

Rhythm is what places musical notations in time, like how long. This is a regular and repeated pattern, simular to a heartbeat.


Different Types of Music

There are a number of music genres, or types of music, to listen to. Some of the most common genres of music are:

  • Rock
  • Heavy Metal
  • Alternative
  • Rap
  • Country
  • Generational ('90's, 80's, 70's, etc.)
  • Classical
  • Religious

The Side Effects of Music

Music has many great side effects that everyone and everything thing can enjoy!

  1. Studies have shown that people who listen to music regularly score higher on intelligence tests than people who do not. This is because people can retain more information when in a happier mood for longer periods of time, which is usually while listening to music.
  2. Music heightens activity in the nucleus accumbens, which can release dopamine into the brain.
  3. Music can also help people with brain injuries to recall personal memories.
  4. Listening to certain genres can increase generosity.
  5. Slow and calm music can heighten a cow's milk production.

The Top 7 Reasons Why I Love Music

This article has gone into many details about music and the facts about music. Besides all of the great things ways that music can improve life, music is a form of art that is deep and universal. Just about every living thing has a song that it sings, whether to communicate or for mating purposes. Now, let's get down to the top 7 reasons why I love music!

1.. Music Can Go With Me Anywhere.

Now with increased technology, awesome music can be enjoyed anywhere at any time. There are multiple apps and online websites for music and music videos that can be accessed from almost any device including tablets, iPhones, Chromebooks, and even game consoles.

2. Song Lyrics Can Mean so Much.

Most people just sing the lyrics to the song that is currently playing at that moment without stopping to think about what they are actually singing. Songs can range from happy to sad, slow to fast. Many song lyrics can say what a person would like to but cannot for whatever reason. There are even certain songs for breaking up and certain songs for weddings. Many songs and lyrics can turn into memories.

3. Music Enhances Physical Performance.

This is the number one reason that many people listen to music while working out. Research continues to repeatedly prove that music synced with repetitive exercise movements allows a person to work out for a longer period of time and train more efficiently by going for a longer time each time. For example, in one study, participants who cycled in time to music found that they required 7 percent less oxygen compared to cycling with asynchronous music. Basically, music provides the temporal cues that have the potential to make more efficient use of physical energy within the body.


4. Musical Education Coursework Leads to Higher Test Scores.

Scientific researchers are actually exploring how students participating in music performance or music appreciation courses in schools can lead to higher SAT scores. It was concluded that on average students scored 63 points higher and 44 points higher in math. Musical students will also tend to have increased coordination, are more creative and emotionally developed, and have a healthy sense of achievement.


5. Music Is Emotional Communication.

Music is a method of understanding a person's and other people's happiness, sadness, rage, fear, envy, etc. Whatever the emotion is that we need to feel, music can help to allow a person to sit back and just feel whatever is happening. The best example of this to hear a happy song when having a good day. Just to sit back and understand what feelings are happening and allowing them to happen which is usually followed by a smile. Now the opposite is said for a sad song when having a bad day. The more a person understands how they feel, it's easier to understand other's.

Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.

— Ludwig van Beethoven

6. There are Always New Songs to Listen to.

The music industry is always changing with the times, to be socially accepted with trendiness. New songs and albums are always being released within many different genres. What was a new song a month ago is no longer a new one. Many music artists can release new songs within a single week or two. I am always checking for new music to keep up with what is new. Some songs can be so good that they eventually become a classic, or also known as an "oldie but a goodie."

7. Music is One of the Fewest Activities that Utilizes All of the Brain.

A research team recorded a specific group of individuals who were listening to music. They concluded that listening to music recruits the auditory areas, and employs large-scale neural networks in the brain. In fact, they believe music can activate the emotional, motor, and creative areas of the brain. Studies have also shown that listening to music can reduce anxiety and blood pressure at the same time. Listening to music can also reduce pain and increase the quality of sleep. By exercising all parts of the brain, as depicted below, this can keep a brain young in a sense. Memory will also improve as songs will be attached to memories.

Yes, they do because the vibrations from music produce movement within the plant cells. This process stimulates the plant to produce more nutrients. If plants don't respond well to rock music, it isn't because they prefer classical music instead.

An AYM on December 05, 2012:

Makes me think of a lovely quote from Beethoven "Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend". For a couple of brief snippets in my life I felt like I might have felt the comprehension before it quickly moved on.

Also - pictures like that first one should make it 11 reasons.
