Music & Sound

We are surrounded by the sound of music. When we are out side in our yards, we hear the sound of birds chirping musical notes, squirrels on an electrical wire, running back and forth, making their merry sounds. We hear the sound of music being listened to, by drivers, in our communities and neighborhoods.

Music brings to listeners something that is wonderful and special. It has a way of relaxing or bringing excitement. There are many different kinds of styles of music. We each can choose our own preference: Contemporary, Jazz, Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, Pop, Inspiration, Spiritual, Soft,  Latin, and others.

I love the sound of musical instruments such as; guitar, drums, clarinet, flute, organ, piano, saxophone, and some others. The keyboard is a ‘must have’ musical instrument, because of the special sound effects it has.

Music and sound have been in the world, from the beginning of its existence.  Beginning with hands clapping, and feet stumping, using what ever item or method, to make sound with rhythm- automatically brings a response of excitement, giving the desire to move with the rhythm of the beat.
We dance, use music in our exercise routines, and to workout.

On rainy days or nights, relaxing and reading a good book, while listening to favorite music and songs, are unforgettable.

“Music is like medicine.  It can bring relief to the aches and stressful situations that life brings. We live in a world of music. There is sound and rhythm everywhere we go!”
