Music is a form of art which plays an important part of our everyday life. Throughout human history, even in the old ages, people used some forms of instrument to MSMusic, as a means of entertainment. Though, is entertainment the only purpose for music in our lives? Maybe most of us never noticed, but music can affect our mood, our productivity and also the way how we feel.
Music as a political tool
One of music's best qualities is that it can unite a number of people closer together, to support a single aim. In 1985, music was the means that united the whole world against world poverty. Thanks to the success of Live Aid concerts, in 2005, Bob Geldof did it again, and organized another worldwide concert, Live Aid. This time he wanted the whole world to send a message to all the G8 world leaders to "Make Poverty History". The event consisted in 10 concerts all around the world, 150 bands and 1250 musicians. Apart from concerts, there were a couple of other concerts and songs released from groups of international artists to deliver messages and raise awareness.
Music helps you concentrate and relax
Although classical music is not in everyone's good books, it can help a person relax and concentrate. There've been studies that proved that if pregnant women listen to classical music; it simulates the babies' minds. Apart from that, the woman herself will relax; therefore the baby will relax as well. Low volume classical music can help everyone concentrate, be more productive in an office, and at the same time keep a relaxed mood. A person is more productive when he listens to some relaxing music in the office, such as classical music. It is also proven that when a person listens to loud and fast music, such as house and techno music, it is much harder to concentrate on what is being done.
