Most people can agree that it’s difficult to imagine a world without music. It’s more than just a mere material pleasure, and becomes a part of our routine. We come into contact with music on a daily basis and can transform our moods in an instant. Music is a global language that inspires every kind of person, theirs feelings and bridges the gap between people belonging to different cultures.
It brings people together and creates universal community. Music influences and arouses emotion in a healthy way. It touches your soul. It is scientifically proven that music enhances brain functioning and sooth your senses, there has even been research that suggests music influences babies whilst they’re still being carried by the mother.
It is not only a part of our daily lives or fashion but is nowadays also pursued as a major career option. Sometimes it not only comes up as a fashion but also has become a basic necessity. Music is definitely a vital pleasure, which doesn’t only have psychological effect of calming your senses, but can also trigger your imagination and your creative abilities even more. Whilst it affects us personally, it can also have an impact on how we engage others. Adolescents spend far more time taking in the new music around us, as it not only helps them discover whom they are, but also helps them to fit in with their peers.
When a popular music celebrity producing a new album, most would want to own that CD purely to fit in, letting the circle of our friends know that we are the part of something as big as the music scene. It is a part of our fashion because we want to follow these music artists, we want to wear what they wear and carry around ourselves like they do. When an artist whom we admire and listen to starts trends of wearing a particular clothing item like black skinny jeans, we’ll feel more inclined to do the same.

When it comes to listening to music in its best form, you can’t beat the feeling of hearing the music performed live. The atmosphere of concerts and the visual of seeing so many others with the same appreciation of you can create a truly unique feeling that cannot be replicated.
The opportunity to hear your favourite song played live in variations is a way of renewing something that has sentimental value to you. Many musical performers like to perform with orchestras and choirs, and may even change heavier songs into something acoustic or even incorporate another musician or singer. All of this involves strong and passionate physical coordination in performing an instrument alone or with others, while reading musical notes, and adding subtle or strong nuanced changes to the music that only a performer can bring.
In general, to an amateur musician, music can help offer an escape from daily life or a substitute means of expressing one’s own capabilities and skills. It is a significant part of our lives that gives us pleasure in a time when we may need it most.
