The Power of Music
The power of music is largely under estimated by many people. While most people love music in one form or the other, many non-musicians fail to notice the following…
Music is Mathematical!
Music is Physical Education!
Music is a Foreign Language!
Music is Science!
Music is Art!
Music is all of these things but most importantly music is love.
Because people dance, the world shines brighter. Because we play our instruments we recognize the beauty in the world. Because we sing we have more love, more compassion, more gentleness, more good and more reasons to live.
Always remember that “Good music has no expiration date!” The best way to showcase the power of music is to keep it alive. I do not know if I will ever be able to thank music for what it has done for me. Music is not just what I do it is who I am. My advice to all reading this post…When you play your music, you shine so keep shining. When you dance, you glow, so keep glowing. When you sing, you smile so keep on smiling. Last but not least, when you write music you open up the heavens; therefore, let the melodies from heaven rain down on all of us forever and ever. Amen!
