Music and Life

Lord Byron has said- "There's music in the sighing of a reed;
                                  There's music in the gushing of a rill;
                                  There's music in all things, if men had ears:
                                  Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.”

Music is the universal language of mankind. He who sings scares away his woes. Our culture immerses us in it for hours each day, and everyone knows how it touches our emotions. Music is a powerful thing. It evokes feelings and has the power to bring people together. Music is also a way for people to express themselves and share ideas. Music is whatever you want it to be.

Music does not have any one concrete meaning. It has different meanings for different people and is unique in each person's life. To a musician, music is his life. They eat, breathe, and live music. For others, music is a hobby, a pastime. Music is something universal, something unique, and something which is soothing to our heart, our senses, which makes our nerves calm down - the effect is simply astonishing. Without music, life would be a mistake.” We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. Music expresses feeling and thought without language. It is incontestable that music induces in us a sense of the infinite and the contemplation of the invisible.
