Music Is The Rhythm Of Life

โ€œIf I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.โ€ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  โ€“ย  ย  ย  Albert Einstein


Got Rhythm?ย 

Imagine, if you can, life without music.

Never mind โ€“ itโ€™s unimaginable.

As far as we know music even predates manโ€™s existenceย  โ€“Job 38:7ย 

So music has always been around and, indeed, every day weโ€™re bombarded with music.

But what about rhythm?ย  In itโ€™s simplest form, rhythm is the regular recurrence of anything in motion.

So, if your walking, talking, jogging or just listening to your heartbeatย  โ€“ youโ€™ve got a rhythm.ย  And any sound coming from that activity is indeed โ€“ music.

So ifย music is the rhythm of life then rhythm must be its soul.


Can Music Also Save Lives?ย 

Askย ย Alice Herz- Sommer, the inspirational Jewish and Holocaust survivor, whose life was a testimony to the power of music.

Alice became passionate about the piano from an early age of life.

Imprisoned in one of Hitlerโ€™s concentration camps, her life was spared because she was a musician. Sheย played or took part in over 100 concerts and performed all of Chopinโ€™s Etudes from memory.
Alice took up residence, after the war in Israel, where former Prime Minister, Golda Meir, Authur and Leonard Bernstein attended her house concerts.ย  Later, towards the end of her life, Alice moved to an apartment in London,ย  thoroughly enjoying life and practicing her piano every day.
Alice died at the age of 110, and was, in fact, the oldest Holocaust survivor at the time of her death in 2014.

If music is the rhythm of Life โ€“ย  which genre is the most beneficial?

Restoring The Rhythm Of Life

Every genre of music has some benefits. Hence, it is important to listen to all genres.

For example, listening to jazz music,ย especially with the sounds of nature in the background, can be very soothing.

A Cambridge University Research group study found that listening to RAP music may help to fight depression.

Rock or Pop music can actually increase physical endurance, according to a 2009 study whereas country music lovers experience more joy.

However, researchers at USC found that classical music, lowered systolic blood pressure levels, more than any other genre or no music at all.

In addition, listening to certain ย favorites by composers likeย Mozart,ย Bach, Brahm has been described as โ€œBrain Food.โ€ย  In fact, studies have shown that classical music is indeed the best music for retention, relaxation and stress relief.

Music โ€œthe Universal Languageโ€œ

Imagine โ€“ if you will โ€“ a man playing piano in the middle of a train station in Paris. True story.

Already he is attracting attention as persons from many countries pause between their travels. Along comes another musician sits next to him and starts playing in unison without speaking a word. The breathtaking performance of the artists along with the rhymic music is a crowd pleaser.
Soon we have a live audience, nodding their heads and clapping their hands in applause and appreciation.

Thatโ€™s why music is called a universal language โ€“ย it crosses cultural and racial barriers and unifiesย all nationalities togetherย as one.

Indeed, music is the magnet that connects us all.



Since music changes, connectsย  and saves lives, it is surely must beย the rhythm of life

Musicย is also the universal language which we all speak.

..And the beat goes on.

Are you missing a beat?

Perhaps music can restoreย the rhythm.

Got rhythm?
