Why Music Is Important

Why Music Is Important

Music is an important part of our lives. It influences us in many ways, such as trends. Music is also used as a way to express feelings. Music is very powerful, and here is why. Music is a creative outlet for our minds, music allows everybody from all backgrounds to express themselves. It can also improve our confidence. According to this Harvard article “Why is music good for the brain?”, people who listened to music scored higher for slightly reduced anxiety and depression and mental well-being. The article also says that 69% of people who go to concerts said that their brain health was “very good” or “excellent”, this is compared to the 50% of people who said that they weren’t at concerts. Even with these statistics we cannot be entirely sure that music does improve our health and overall well- being. This is because the survey only included people aged 18 and older with only 3,185 people participating in the survey. Also, it is just a survey using people’s opinions. With everything being said these results don’t exactly prove that music really improves our well-being, but it does show that people feel music really improves their lives. Although we cannot be sure these results are accurate, we can say that people feel better after listening to music.
