It can be a career, a hobby, a relaxant, stimulant or mood setter, whatever purpose you use it for though music is universally multifunctional and something which without, the world would almost certainly be a duller place. Regardless of personality there is a genre of music around to suit any individual whether you’re a fan of house music, garage, electro, R and B, classical or trance – we can all find music that we can enjoy.

Music is at its least an art form, at its most life changing and career forging. The uncanny ability of music to inspire so many emotions is staggering. Subconscious memories can be triggered by a simple melody and for those who bring music to life you can make people immensely happy. Each nation around the world has their own type of music serving to convey their culture. This can range from tribes communicating and maintaining tradition to modern musicians who create anthems with the intention of creating immortality through their songs. The origins of musical preference are an interesting concept also, for example how much does the music we listen to as a child influence our musical preference when we are adults?

As for some of the types of music, dependent upon mood and preference if you like a big sound a rock concert is probably the right venue for you. Whilst trying to drop off to sleep however it may not be so ideal! If you love to soak up the atmosphere then some live music at an intimate venue might be the perfect evening out or if you’re revising hard and in study mode, classical music has been proven to aid concentration. There’s no doubt at all that music is food for the soul.

Musicians and composers create music to be listened to and enjoyed by others, without this arguably it has no purpose. Allowing people to enjoy others music in as many forms as possible has led to an influx of technology which seems to progress at a rapid rate. You can now listening to music anywhere, be it on your phone, at work or even underground thanks to technology. As a blessing, having mobile music on the go helps to relax and soothe those listening to it, wherever and whenever they feel the need.
