I have to say that today I got to thinking how music is really a therapy for a lot of modern mental and physical ailments. My reasoning as I thought of this today is that if you listen to the music you like when you are feeling sad or happy it has a overall effect on how you feel. Just like what colors do to you so does music do even more to promote healing on a larger scale than even what food or diet suppliments do to your body. The interesting thing is as you listen longer to your favorite tunes you feel more relaxed and you are more able to concentrate on what ever your daily tasks are at hand. This calming and soothing effect is really your body response to the positive effect of what it overall does to ones self image and body wellness. To employ music as a cure for all kinds of disease medical studies have shown that if you listen to at least four to seven hour of music a week you are less likely to be sick and less likely to die early in life. Wow.. what a real blessing as you get older and need more stimulation and drugs to maintain that good health for a better you. What if you used music more frequently to cure your aches and pains of getting older? I have done some reseearch that suggests that it really works to promote a longer,happy and healthier life span with less stress your body as proven by by modern medicaine does not age as fast as say those people who live a life of solitude. This is why I support music projects that bring joy to sick kids and people of all walks of life who need a helping hand to cope with sometimes very serous deadly ailments. I am a musician and I get to see in my audience all the times I have preformed in bands in the past and even now as a solo artist that music is a natural language that lifts up people of all ages and backrounds. It is eay to sit here and to talk about the benefits that music can do as a seperate language of joy,happyness but then that is just the tip of what it really means to be a conservator of music as a art form. I have to say that even when my days playing and singing in other peoples bands as I did alot on my age twenties you can see that even a bad night when we as bands members were doing alot of mistakes because we knew we were just doing awefull that night or week that still as critical as we were of our playing and singing everyone still danced and enjoyed themselves. In many nights that I was singing back up vocals and sometimes lead vocals in a variety of band that I was involved in I have to say as a musician we artists are mouch more technical and we are our own worse critic as to how our show is doing and who is just stinking on stage that evening playing or singing. When you join a band as a artist you sort of got to pick yourself up a handbook of how every member wants to proceed and try to please everyone which usually never works to well but then what the heck your not there just to please the band members alone but you are really there to please your audience. Having said that I have had the good fortune of playing with some of the well known cover bands and others that just all of them were more on a professional level. This sure made it easier to make that music show just flow with joy and sounded like we were all pros at it on stage which in turn got the whole place that we were playing at a happy dancing crowd. You see that when a band is really good and that evening everything is going great with no bugs in equipment you get the sense that the place is alive with a atmosphere all it's own. The drum beat is shaking and the keyboard is grooving plus all the other instruments going you feel the beauty of it all just is really is what music can do to a person. Music is the heart of a person that makes joy come alive which also for some one like me the soul too that beats to that rhythym of the tempo and the whole song. This is why music is a theraphy no matter what your age is that it can be appreciated for what it is capable of doing as a cure for all types of human problems. In closing if your not a music fan or you never really like music in your life well now is the time no matter what your age is to go and start enjoying all the benefits of music has to offer. You to can become one day a new person with a new feeling of happyness that perhaps you never had in your life until you discovered what music is all about. Then if you get hooked like I am as a artist you might want to join a band yourself or become a independent artist like me and explore your inner self by using music as a meduim to do this over your lifetime.
