One of the reasons is because of the benefits of classical music, which seems to draw almost everyone to them at some point in his or her life. Classical music can stimulate people's minds, nurture their soul, bring them to whole new worlds. Besides that, this paper also aims to show how classical music has influenced my life and still does so. I believe classical musichas benefits to everyone, no matter he is a professional musician or he has not been introduced to it yet. I will begin my paper with my personal experience with listening to classical music and then I will show how classical music benefits people's life in different ways.
Brittany Kear Ms. Carroll English Comp 18 October 2011 Dave Matthews Band- “Funny the Way It Is” It is no doubt that music has played a vital role in our society. Everything from loud, head-banging concerts to religious ceremonies has utilized music because of its breathtaking qualities. Music has many different ways to affect people. In some ways, it is good for the body. In other ways, people think it is nice to listen to.
I have been working as a professional musician for the past eight years (holding a doctoral performance degree for the past seven), and although I have found my experiences as an orchestral musician and adjunct college professor personally fulfilling, I have felt an increased desire to help other people in more meaningful ways and also to better provide for my family. One night as I was thinking deeply about this situation and researching various career options (related and unrelated to music), I discovered occupational therapy. At first I was intrigued. Then, witnessing the important role in the lives of individuals benefiting from OT, I found myself enveloped by an incredible feeling that this is indeed what I was meant to do. After speaking with a variety of therapists (occupational, speech, and respiratory), I have concluded that OT profession will be a wonderful career path to pursue.
I came home after school around 4pm there always had cartoons played on television. I used the recorder to record the songs that I like and used up almost three tapes to record all these songs. I was humming the melody on my way to school, when I was doing my homework or just when I was bored. Until now there are some melodies that I can still remember and sing along. When I turned middle school, I started to listen to the Beatles, Hey Judy, Yesterday, Yellow Submarine and Let It Be are all my favorite songs.
The musician that caught my eye was the saxophonist. He put on a show for the audience and really left you up beat and ready to dance. The key board and drummer were somewhat to themselves, but they all contributed to the overall sound of the band. I got most in to the song “Sway” because it was one that I knew and I could really feel the beat and it definitely had my head nodding. The cultural aspect of the band was just as I imagined.
Interdisciplinary/Disciplinary Discourse Music Music is not a language (Glover, Ward, 2004). It is a feeling that all people are born with and use to brighten the world around them or to lighten the stress within them. Every person may have a different reason why they enjoy listening to music but the majorities of people understand its art and marvel at its creativity. Music, as a discipline, represents a subject that concentrates on developing the musical aspect of a person; using techniques that can help shape their personality and demeanor. Music requires focus and practice in order to master its culture, which involves history of the discipline, history of the instruments, and improvisation.
Jazz technique is something that can be interpreted differently to each individual, but generally the following are summarized methods that can greatly influence overall exceptional execution. Your voice quality is your own, but most aim for an earthy or breathy sound, similar to your normal speaking voice. Blossom Dearie is a great example of this, as her banter after singing sounds the exact same as the soft voice that she uses while singing. Breath control is a very important aspect, as when improvising you don't always foresee where your next breath spot will be placed. Your range and flexibility is also an aspect that is important while improvising, as a large range is often desired.
Finally, music is important to me because through music programs friendships are amazing. Friends I had before I started music programs I am now so much better friends with through participating in music with them. I have made so many new friends, of all different ages and schools through music programs. Our music groups at MJHS have formed a family. We all love and support each other and have all become amazing friends.

Some people get lucky with the capability to sing and they should be able to showcase that. There are many reasons for choir and music to be a class you can take in your school. People are able to express themselves through music. When they don''t have the words to say they can use music to show how they feel. Music is a universally understood language, and anyone can hear it no matter what language they speak.
