Music is a universal language capable of awakening emotions and unique sensations.  When we get together to dance, we let the rhythm of the music lead us. At other times we look to music to reassure us, or maybe to study or to help us work, in the background. Music affects us in powerful ways. Do you tap your toes, bop your head, cry, smile, or even feel a little frisky when you hear certain songs?

 

For example, see what emotions you feel when you listen to Apha Blondys popular song called “I wish u were her” and follow those emotions…. These are all effects of music. Music has the potential to make us better music plays an important role in our everyday lives.

 

However, before we talk about music and the brain, let us talk about three basic things: sound, music, and the brain.

 

Sound is a vibration, which travels through air or another medium and is heard when the sound reaches the ear of a person or an animal.

 

Vocal music or instrumental music (or both) combined will produce beauty from, harmony and expressions of emotion.

 

The brain is one of the largest and the most complex organs in the human body. It is made up of 100,000,000 nerves that communicate in multiple connections called synapses

 

Music is an art, entertainment, form of pleasure meditation and medicine for the soul and body. The music involves the use of the whole brain; it improves memory, attention span, physical coordination and mental development.

 

Music boosts the brain chemicals and affects moods by stimulating the information of certain brain chemicals.

 

Music plays an important role and our brain treats music differently. If a song makes you happy, it is because it’s affecting your brain chemistry called dopamine. Dopamine is one of the chemical signals that transport information. For example, dopamine is realized during moments of enjoyment while listening to music that might gives you “the chills”. It’s also the same chemical reaction experienced when we fall in love.
