The dictionary may refer to music as “the art of combining tones to form expressive composition; any rhythmic sequence of pleasing sounds” however, we know music is so much more than that definition; music is in everything around us. Music can be found everywhere in our world. It helps people find themselves, and helps them through hard times that we all face in our lives. Music gives us a way to express ourselves and show how we feel inside. Music is important in our world, its what makes us human. Developing confidence and resilience in music is not only attractive to employers, but can enrich our lives as a whole.
