MUSIC-Do you think music is important in life?

To me,yes. I'm a kind of person who is not that much into study matters.I am not so fond of music and listening to whatever songs i get. But I do think that music is important. I listen to only one Singer,because he feels each and every word he utters.

Well, it is certainly important in my life, judging by the fact that some form of music is almost always playing, in my house, in my car, even in my classroom.  As a historian, I like how music reflects the time period and events taking place as it is written and performed.  I like how it reflects and reminds us of culture at the time.  It serves as a connection between eras and generations.  Plus it's just fun and uplifting.

Absolutely. I need music when I'm doing anything: driving, working, exercising, reading...just about everything! My family also has a musical background. My paternal grandmother was a lounge singer, and my dad played drums and sang in a band for about 30 years. I love to sing, but usually only do so in the privacy of my own home, or onstage in musicals. Few things in life can influence my mood like a good song.

They say that reading music or the ability to play an instrument is one of the few (perhaps the only) persuit that actively engages nearly all of the brain simultaneously. There is also a part of the brain that is only activated and utilized by the reading of music and playing an instrument.

Certainly music is an integral key to high order intellectual thinking.  It has been used as therapy, as a means to actively engage students with various mental and physical disabilities, and even for some, a method of communication.

Music is not something I would ever force upon my own children, but it is something I truly hope they are interested in because I think it will make them more well rounded in every other area of intellectual and social skills.

Music is a great source of joy and peace to most of the people. Different people have different degree of affinity or love for music. However, it is rare to find a person who has absolutely no liking for music.

Music, in addition to being valuable in itself, it plays a decisive role in enhancing the value of of poems or songs. Similarly it also plays an important part in enhancing the quality and value of dancing.

Music can be enjoyed in solitude also. But at the same time music can be played, sung and listened in groups also. This helps to bring people together. In this way music has also been used very effectively for promoting common values and emotions in groups of people.

Music touches emotions. Music and lyrics touches emotions. It lifts us up. It takes away boredom. It helps us concentrate. It helps us connect through empathy to situations others face. Music also has been proven to aid in learning, so yes music is important.

I think that listening to music is important, as someone else has stated it can lift our spirits when we are down. If you are fortunate to have the talent to actually play music it is even more important.

For me, music is very important in my life. It inspires me when I need it to, entertains me when I'm bored, and so on. And it also helps to hear certain songs that you can relate to, especially during times of sadness. It helps to me to not feel as alone.

Oh, and I love dancing, which is always better with music xD

Music is definitely important to me because it is another means of communication between one person and myself. Music has also helped inspire me to keep drawing. Sometimes a certain lyric from a song may catch my attention and I begin to draw a piece that is dedicated or inspired from that lyric. Other times, music has motivated me to study and/or workout because of the beats per minute.
