Music Plays A Influence On My Life
Music plays a tremendous role in my life and always has. From the age of five, my parents introduced to me to one particular type of music, which
was gospel and it has been a part of who I am ever since. I can remember waking up early on Sunday morning hearing gospel music from artist such as
Kim Burrell, Shirley Caesar, and Mary Mary. I began learning these particular gospel songs and then I gained the courage to sing these songs in
church. At that moment, I knew singing was a passion of mine and music became food to my soul. I would have to say the moment in my life where I
strongly became influenced by music was as a child between the ages of five and twelve.
Then when I entered middle school, I joined the school band. I played two instruments, the trombone and trumpet. Although I truly enjoyed playing
those two instruments, I've always dreamed of playing the piano or violin but I never gained the opportunity to receive lessons. During the seventh
grade, I joined the Needwood Middle School Choir. We sung gospel music and Christmas music during the holiday season. With gaining so much
musical experience during my time in Middle School, my church appointed me to Youth Choir Director for Salem St. John Baptist Church.
Overall, I prefer Gospel music for so many different reasons. One of the reasons I prefer to listen to Gospel music is because of the messages behind
this type of music. God comes first and he truly is the head of my life. As a Christian, by me listening to

The Role Of Music In My Life
Bono once said, "Music can change the world because it can change people". Music has changed me into the person I am today. I believe that music
heals my life problems. I remember running around in the Blockbuster video store my parents owned, always drawn to the music section. Although my
parents weren't heavily influenced by music, I branched out and discovered a whole new world. I found myself getting my first MP3 player at age 7.
Although The Jonas Brothers and High School Musical were less influential in my life, it did expose my mind to music. In a more recent time, I find
the lyrics to songs very powerful and meaningful. Each song has a meaning, and every song I listen to can relate to my life. I mostly listen to very sad
songs, and although it sounds disheartening, it's what I can relate to the most. There was a time in my life when I was very lonely and unhappy. I
had no one to relate to, except for when I found lyrics in a song. Music helped save my life, it was there even in the darkest of days. Music then
made me a much happier person. It was difficult to express my feelings and emotions, but I felt that I finally wasn't alone. It helps me find myself
and my happiness every day. Every time I am in a bad mood, I just put on my headphones, listen to some of my favorite voices, and tune out the rest
of the world. At the end of the day, if no one else is there for me, I know music is. The tune of a song is always something that I enjoy because it
brings people

The Importance Of Music In My Life
If I had a table that held objects that symbolized my life, on that table I would for sure have a music sheet, a plane, and a car. These objects may
seem kind of strange and may have seemed insignificant to me before I had to write this essay, but I now realize that they do in fact relate and
symbolize an aspect of my life. Whether it be how music is an important part of my life or how my sister moved away to another country, and early
memories of round–tripping with my family, I will explain to you how these things are important to me.
I am proud to say that I've been in the school band for most of my school career, (since fifth grade to be exact) although others may be embarrassed
by the fact that they were even in band. It has brought me many fun memories that I will be able to cherish and will have a spot in my heart. First
off, I have an amazing band teacher that honestly does love the fact that we are in his band and takes the time to talk to us and build friendships.
Our band teachers took us to an amazing trip to Disneyland my freshman year in high school, where we bonded with upperclassmen and really had a
good time. Not only have I enjoyed cool trips, pep band, and learning to read music and play the clarinet, but I have also enjoyed the fact of building
friendship and being close to everyone that is a part of it. Sheet music to me also represents what I may want to have a future career in and the fact that
I would like to learn how to play other instruments,

The Importance Of Music In My Life
Music is extremely important. Growing up, music always played a big role in my life. My soul works through music. It also helped me through
extremely rough times in my life. When I was 7, I lost my little brother. I was mentally unstable during that period of time and music became the
medicine to cure my broken soul. Losing my brother caused lots of trials and tribulations in my life. I started having suicidal thoughts and starting
doing lots of things that to this day I regret. I felt like life was slowly giving up on me. I was riding home from school one day, and on the radio a
song came on. "Jessica Reddy, Better", was blasting through my mother's speakers. Listening to the melody in her voice and the words that
escaped her lips as she sang sent chills through my body. But, one part of that song stood out the most to me. She said, " Life, it can leave you so
bitter. But, you must believe that it gets better . It's alright, dry your eyes, send a prayer to the sky. I know It's hard to fight. But, you must believe
that it gets better." Her words spoke so much life into me. I went from being a depressed little girl to slowly but surely gaining back faith. Her
words, her tone, the melody in her voice, and the lyrics she sang gave me hope, courage, and my sanity. That's why this song played a major role in
my life. Shortly after that downfall in my life, I started to engage in boys. Becoming a teenager, I wanted to not listen to my mother and get a
boyfriend, being " hot in

The Importance of Music in Life Essay

rhythm, and meter. Variation is an important key to teach a child so that they understand the there are many different ways to approach music and

Modest Petrovich
Mussorgsky composed a piece, ?Promenade, from pictures of an exhibition? solely around an art exhibition. This is a dark and gloomy symphony that
represents a marching soldier and paints a vivid picture of an army.
Another composer using imagery was Aram Khachaturian, he composed a work called ?Sabre Dance?. This is an extremely energetic powerful piece
that paints a definite picture of a chase and catch situation. This can be found in many cartoons today which allows a child to relate the classical music
to a humorous situation. The piece is filled with energy and caused my seven year old brother to dance and run around the room.
He enjoyed this piece the most and said it reminded him of a Tom and
Jerry cartoon.. A modern classical composer, Steve Reich wrote
?Different Trains?, this is a classic example of sensory imagery. The composer uses many counts of ostinato, tempo, and meter changes to portray the
sounds of different trains in different cities. The sampled sounds paint a colorful picture and make the piece very interesting and unique. The originality
yet classical makeup attracts children and adults to imagine moving trains. Dynamics, softness and loudness in music, is another important part of
musical composition. Franz Joseph
Haydn wrote ?The Surprise Symphony? that developed a variation in the dynamic level.

It gives people a chance to understand the world differently rather than simply sitting in class taking a test. Every single time I hear a new song my life changes and I fall in love again. Each student should have the opportunity to fall in love with the arts and change for the better. Although many people regard art education as a luxury, the creative activities found in art classes like music, dance, ceramics, and drawing, are some of the first steps that go towards child development.

In other words, it is such a close and significant election. Music is composed of three basic elements: rhythm, melody and harmony.

One example is the negroide show, which is basically manifested as percussions of the drawer that invite a lively and sustained physical movement (Cohen, Bailey & Nilsson, 2002). The melody for its part is the expressive element of music, what is commonly known as "the music" of the song, what impacts me, what I remember.

The third element is harmony; this requires a level of intellectual development, knowledge of the musical language Get more content on HelpWriting.net
