Ask yourself, can you live without music? You can not, right? People who have excluded music from their lives practically do not exist. Without her immense, joyful and exalting influence, one can not imagine the spiritual world of man.
When we wake up in the morning or go to bed in the evening, walk around the city, celebrate a holiday or do nothing – everywhere we are surrounded by music: on the radio, television or just in our thoughts. Nowadays the popularity of music has acquired an unprecedented scale: it reflects in itself all spheres of life, all forms of the relationship of man with society, with nature and with himself. Our time, our life is distinguished by dynamism, complexity, striving for perfection, therefore, music is very dynamic now, and each of us, listening to its sounds, listens to ourselves.
“Music is the greatest power,” the ancient philosophers claimed, “It can make a person love and hate.”
I also noticed that music has a special power of influence. Hearing a funeral march, I’m upset, and an invigorating, cheerful music gives me a good mood. I have no doubt that in the sounds there is hidden magic, a certain mystery, thanks to which music is able to control the feelings and actions of people, create this or that mood. It is no accident that one of the myths of the ancient Greeks that I love most is the myth of Orpheus, the all-conquering power of music.
I really love the rhythms of popular
However, you can not listen to a lot of music in a row, and without parsing. The hearing of a person is constantly dulled, and we gradually cease to feel the charm of every harmony.
In music, the composer talks about his thoughts, experiences, about his life. Everyone, listening to a piece of music, perceives it because of their individuality. Therefore, everyone has his own Tchaikovsky, his Vysotsky and his Malinin. This explains the changing attitude of one and the same person to music at different ages: over the years, people learn more about life, experience accumulates, in music the adult sees and finds something that he could not find and see in childhood or in adolescence.
Music helps me better understand my friends and family members – there is not so much a difference between communicating people with each other and our communication with music. Simply in one case, this is sympathy for the words and thoughts of the interlocutor and empathy for them, and in the other – empathy with the mood of the sounds of music. For example, with live, direct communication, if a person tells something, interrupts or does not listen at all, it is considered a sign of bad education, tactlessness. And when the music sounds, when the composer and the performer talk about their thoughts, experiences, about their lives, they should also listen without distracting or fussing.
Music generously reveals to us the treasures accumulated by mankind. In our quest for perfection and development, we will often turn to the priceless wealth of beauty, experience, wisdom of music. Music opens for everyone a whole world of high feelings, aspirations, hopes, thoughts. Learn to listen and appreciate music.
