Music is played in every society and culture in the world today. Some people think that music brings only benefits to individuals and societies. Others, however, think that music can have a negative influence on both. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
In mordern world, the idea of whether music exerts positive impacts on both negative and positive impacts or benefits only to people and communities has become controversial. This essay will discuss both views of this argument and a conclusion shall be made. On the one hand, it is undeniable the fact that music has enomous effect to our lives. I cite with those who support benefits of music may point to the emotional and spritual support in one’s mood. When someone, for instance, listens to a song with cheerful and upbeat tones on the way to work in the morning, he will probably feel more energetic and positive, helping to achieve better work performance. Furthermore, it is also true that music plays an important role in entertainment field such as films, dramas among others. Imagine that a film full of dialouges but without music may become boring, and less attractive to the audience, reducing the number of views and affecting negatively on the revenue. As a last point, it may have been scientifically proven that music helps us to tap into memory reinforcement by setting what need to be remembered to music, for example, today in some countries teachers create a history text set as the lyrics to a catchy song which may go in students’ mind better than words. On the other hand, negative effects of music should also be acknowledged, for instance, the lyrics of the music can be harmful and especially damage the psychology of children and teenagers at important development stage. Moreover, exposure to load music or using earphones for a long time can lead to hearing loss. To conclude, it is hard to imagine a world without music because it appears to me that music has become a apart of our spiritual life with lots positive ripple effect. However this is provided that music should not be listened in loud volume and for a long time.
