Hey, it’s me Tasa!
Music is something that every person has his or her own specific opinion about. Different people have different taste, and various types of music have many ways of leaving an impact on someone.
It can be relaxing, angering, soothing, energizing, and many more. There are so many types of music out there today. Rap, pop, rock, country, indie, alternative, hard-core are some of the abundant types in the world.
Music sends out either good or bad messages that have big impacts on how people act. People usually become friends with others who have a same taste in music as the rest of the people they hang out with, or it can be vice versa.
People may not want to associate with people who have different tastes in music because they’ll argue about what they think is better but it’s just their own opinions. When people listen to the new things out there, they learn different things going on in the world and they become more open-minded because they’re exposed to different people like the artists. They can use music to express themselves, in ways it can’t be expressed through behaviour, or art. You can usually tell how someone’s feeling by the type of music he or she is listening to at the time. It’s a tool used by many.
Groups of people around the world can come together and gather at concerts, shows, and venues to show what their interests and likings are and you see how many people have similar likings as you. I can personally relate to the effects that music has on its listeners and users because it’s a big part of my life. Every day I listen to the words and sounds of different singers/bands with contrasting ideas and opinions. The music I listen to makes me who I am.
I started song-writing at the end of year 6 and I know as an artist how important music is to me. I play piano, guitar, ukulele and sing. Without that I wouldn’t know what defines me, but I’d know that my identity would be completely different. I listen to music all the time and have come to find that it brings many benefits to my life and general well-being. I have also found out that making music brings me joy as well.
I compose songs and all sorts of tunes and it’s great fun. Sometimes I find that when trying too hard to write a song, it just won’t budge! But from years of experience I’ve learnt to let it flow and come to me naturally instead of forcing it. I’m so blessed to have the ability to compose songs, play instruments and sing.
As I grow older I hope to be able to know more and to have the ability to teach the not so fortunate to play an instrument or even to sing! I love the thought of making incapacitated children happy and free. “iZRA MEANS FREE, AND WE BELIEVE FREE IS WORTH THE FIGHT”
