Please read Six Reasons You Should Let Your Child Listen to Hip Hop by Ross Simmonds. I know this is a lot of reading but it is definitely worth the read.


Music is so much more than just sound, video and lyrics. Music has a place in everyone’s heart for different reasons; first date, marriage, prom night. If you ask someone to tell you about a time they enjoyed music, and I’m sure they could come up with something entertaining. Have you ever heard someone say they do not like music? I haven’t. I’ve heard people talk about the different genres they enjoy, but never a dislike for music (in general).

Music is one of the most powerful weapons in the world. A piece of music has the ability to easily affect our emotions. How we think, and the way we go about our every day life. Music is often written based on the lives of the artists and their journey in life. Often their journeys and struggles are the same as ours. This is one way we connect to music and the artist. Music easily puts you in a mood. It causes your mood to swing: happy, sad, playful, sexy (amongst many others). This is one phenomena that has the ability to change the world. Unfortunately we use it in a more mainstream kind of way.

Motivational Playlist



If I told you everything music is used for I would writing this blog all day. As you already know, music is used to help, encourage, inspire, entertain, religion, rights, politics, therapy, fashion, video games, movies and sports (to name a few). We use music for healing all the time. We allow music to determine our moods, and what we think about.
