This month's KPC Word on Campus

Why is music important to you?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Music is a universal language and has an amazing power to bring people together.

– Hannah Soplanda, KBC

Associate of Arts

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

– Phillip Hemphill, AES

Associate of Applied Science, Process Technology

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

– Jaclyn Hall, KBC

Associate of Arts

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.

– Robert Lopez, AES

Associate of Applied Science, Process Technology

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.

– Janet Umstead, KRC

Associate of Arts & Associate of Applied Science General Business

Music to me is important because it helps me concentrate before I run a race.

– Pedro Ochoa, KBC

Bachelor of Arts, Justice

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.

– Myles Burton, KRC

Associate of Applied Science, Process Technology

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

– Sadie Sprenger, KRC
