OPINION: Music makes the world go round

September 11, 2014 Wesley Bahn 0

Music is one of those things in life that is universal. I think life would be empty without it. It’s essential to humanity as we know it. Music has been around since the beginning of time. Even before it could be recorded or written down, there was music. As music progressed through the years and more instruments were created, the styles of music were ever changing and evolving. From the Renaissance period to the Baroque period to the Romantic period, every era had a different feel to the sound of the music. Now more than ever, there are more genres that give people a wider variety to choose from. Rock, classical, rap, country, movie scores, gospel, techno, and those few genres are just the tip of all that is being created every day. Every person has a type of music that they prefer or like to listen to over other genres, and every type of music affects people in different ways.
