My name is Tré, and I am a student at William Paterson University, I am working to become a songwriter and an executive at a PRO, and music is my life. I have been infatuated with music since I was born. I played drums before I could walk, and had my hands on the piano before I could talk. I am a student of life as well as school and I intend to never stop pursuing music as a career, as a passion, and as an art form.
Music is a science, music is an art form, music is a medicine, its a language, its a feeling. It’s a force to be reckoned with. Music is something that every single person on earth can relate to. How insane is that? You can sing a song to someone in Zimbabwe and although you have nothing in common (besides 99.9% of your DNA), they will understand. Thats nuts. The sounds we can create, these pressure waves through space, can actually heal people. It can bring enemies together, it can bring back better times, or worse times. Music is in the most genuine way, a power.
Scientifically speaking, music is awesome. Yeah, thats the technical term. But really, music has the ability to not just make you happy when you’re sad or vice versa, it literally can physically heal you. Studies show that without a doubt, music helps to calm young children, relieve stress, and alleviate the effects of diseases like Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia, and Alzheimers. Music is, in essence, vibration, and the vibrations that occur when music is played are proven to release dopamine and secrete other chemicals in the brain to make you feel better, and in turn, be better. This is why people love music so much, because of its tendency to change the mood, and tickle your brain.
Personally, I grew up in a musical household. My father has been a drummer since he was 10, and always encouraged me to play (anything except the drums). I do not know a life without music, or without having music as an outlet. Music is the way that I release the tension of the day. Writing music is how I put my thoughts on metaphorical paper and release whatever is on my mind. Wether I know what I’m writing about or not, it always comes out when I write. Music has shaped me, and it is the reason I am the person I am today.
Music has a global power which is the ability to heal, to bring people together, and to decorate the time of our lives with its presence. It is a language that everyone understands and it is a force that will always be there, and will always have the power to transform the human spirit.
