Mrs. Williams

I believe that music is a part of life and that everyone can benefit from music.  I found this write-up on the internet and I agree with it totally.

 

Music is a science - It is exact, specific; and it demands exact acoustics.  A conductor's full score is a chart, a graph which indicates frequencies,

intensities, volume changes, melody and harmony all at once and with the most exact control of time.

 

Music is mathematical - It is rhythmically based on the subdivisions of time into fractions which must be done instantaneously, not worked on paper.

 

Music is a foreign language - Most of the terms are in Italian, German, or French; and the notation is certainly not English-=but a highly developed kind of shorthand that uses symbols to represent ideas. Music is the most complete and universal language.

 

Music is history - Music usually reflects the environments and times of its creation, often even the country and/or feeling.

 

Music is a physical education - It requires fantastic coordination of fingers, hands, arms, lips, cheek and facial muscles, in addition of extraordinary control of the diaphragmatic, back, stomach and chest muscles, which respond instantly to the sound of the ear hears and the mind interprets.

 

Music all these things, but most of all music is art - It allows a human being to take all these dry technically boring(but difficult) techniques and use them to create emotions.That is one thing that science cannot duplicate:  humanism, feeling, emotion, call it what you will.
