Music Is the Most Important Form of Art

Music is formally defined as the art of combining vocal and or instrumental sounds together to create expressions of an effect, like emotions and situations. Music can describe feelings and thoughts that many people have, but they can not express for whatever reason. The word music is actually a noun that means musica in Latin and originated from the Greek word muse. The word music has synonyms like melody, harmony, and song. Music is a natural tool because it is a universal form of communication. When animals sing their songs to one another, this is music used for communicating and even mating. Humans use music for many different reasons, such as entertainment or to exercise.

From expression to communication purposes, music has many great uses. Music is also beneficial for a person's health and even their mood. Studies have shown that people who listen to music regularly are smarter, can retain more information, and are in happier moods for longer periods of time than those people who did not listen to any music throughout the day. Even plants and babies can benefit from listening to music. Music should be included in everyone's life, either through the radio or online, for expression of themselves and to be more healthy.

Music Genres

There are many different music genres to choose from. Each genre contains it's own unique sound, beats, lyrics, and message. Music genres are simply a variety of music artists, tempos, and beats. The type of music genre a person enjoys listening to depends on personal preference, mood, or type of activity. Many people enjoy listening to multiple music genres, while many music artists and performers are included in multiple music genres.

10 Reasons Why I Love Music

Music has many different meanings to people depending on who they are and their culture, but there are certain reasons why I personally love music. This is a list of the reasons why I love music because it is something that is very near and dear to me. It's been there for me always and helped me get through some of the toughest and confusing times in my life. Since I enjoy music so very much and do listen to music often, I thought 'why not create an article all about music?' My list of reasons includes facts about music, but also personal thoughts and opinions that many other people might be able to relate to and share.

1. Music Heals the Soul.

Music has healing power for our souls. Whether it's from a broken heart, dirty from the day, or tired from the world the soul can always be healed by music. Maybe a good cry or just dance to burn off steam, music will provide a healing power to the soul as nothing else can. Stress and problems will begin to melt away and suddenly your mood is better because you are thinking about something else for the moment.

2. Music is Life.

Music is there for us to cry, celebrate, party, and to share in all the things this life has to offer. Music is soft and hard, easy and difficult all at the same time, much similar to life itself. Music is life.

3. Music is Memories.

Recent studies have concluded that music is very beneficial for patients with dementia and alzheimer's disease because certain songs can deeply touch a person's memory in such a way that they will remember people, places, and or events.

4. Music is Ultimately Diverse.

Every person has a different preference in their choice of music to listen to, which may change over time or based on mood. There is a diverse variety of music for any person to enjoy, ranging from hard to soft. I listen to different music genres, depending on my mood or what time of the day. For example, if I am exercising then I choose rock or pop music. If I am trying to relax then I choose classical music. There is a type of music for every person to listen to, to enjoy, and even to relate to. There are many choices of music, but there is never a need to choose just one.

5. Music Will Always Evolve and Change.

As time goes on, the lines of different genres of music are becoming more blurred together instead of defined separately. Like during the time when rock music was first introduced, there was no rap or dub-step mixed with it. But now in modern times, music genres are being combined to create new types of genres. For example, rock is often mixed with rap and country music. Music is always evolving and changing with the times to stay modern, which results in new music variations. Since most people have multiple preferences in music genres, music must evolve to compensate for the desired entertainment. Music will always change and will always become better.

6. Songs and Lyrics Can Mean So Much.

When I hear a certain song that is played and listen to the lyrics being sung, this can often describe a situation or experience that I may be going through at that particular time along with the particular emotions that are felt. This can help me to feel better by knowing that another person has been through a similar type of challenge also, and or has felt the same emotions about certain things. A special song, with amazing lyrics and even a good rhythm, can always mean so much to a person.

7. Music is Medicine.

8. Music is an Expression of a Person.

This reason why I love music is very unique and different because it can describe a person. If a person listens to angry music all of the time, they are probably a very angry person. If a person listens to country music all of the time, they are probably wearing a cowboy or cowgirl hat. This is a way of stereotyping a person, but in a positive way because it is usually true. Music is an expression of a person, describing who they are and how they feel. The type of music chosen for a person to listen to says very much about them and about their emotions. Again, the type of music listened to can change because feelings change.

9. Music is an Escape.

10. Music is a Universal Language.

Animals, plants, and humans alike can all enjoy music, for many different reasons. Animals can make and listen to music for mating purposes, but also for migration and even for hunting. It is a proven fact that certain types of music can help a plant to grow and flowers to bloom. Humans can listen to or play certain songs to other people to express words that may be hard to say. Music can be understood by everyone because it is a type of language used to communicate something, including plants, animals, and even babies.

        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.

        beautiful hub! I really enjoyed reading this.

        Music is so relaxing and inspiring. I found some great videos on youtube, which I find very relaxing. It´s basically just soothing instrumental music, very simple, but very effective.

        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.
