Why is music important to you?

Music is very important. We hear music from the very beginning of our existence, in the beat of our mother’s heart. It sets the pace or can change our mood just with a beat and a rhythm. We can listen while we read or do our chores, it intensifies a good movie, and we celebrate victories and commemorate defeats. It ties us together. Learning to play an instrument teaches us a different language and makes math and complex tasks easier. I love music.

Music isn’t all that important to me, but I do enjoy listening to it on the radio.

There are many reasons that music is important to me. Music is international – it is global. Music creates an emotion that brings people together. Music has a power as strong as gravity.

It reminds me that other people share my same emotions and helps me express them in a healthy way.

Music is important to me because it helps me express my emotions and release pent-up emotion that I have that day.

Music keeps me focused. Different genres help me stay focused depending on what I’m doing. For example, I like to listen to something upbeat when I work out, like hip hop or trap music, and I tend to listen to jazz or R&B when I’m doing my homework. Music is very important to me.
