Today is World Music Day and I want to talk about music with you because I love songs. My name is Margaret and I’m a singer. I’m going to be sharing why music is important, what it means to me, and why I think we should celebrate music.
Music is really important because it makes me feel happy. I love singing, playing my guitar, and listening to music. I love many songs and different types of music. My favorite singers are Mariah Carey, Rhianna, Norah Jones, and Whitney Houston. I love the songs “Don’t Know Why” by Norah Jones, and “Hero” by Mariah Carey. I enjoy music that is slow and relaxing. I enjoy music is sung by women, because I like the sound of their voices.
I listened to a lot of music growing up. I have a radio that plays music, and that is how I found a lot of my favorite music. I enjoy singing by myself. I also like to sing with Jenna and Bella, music therapists at Able ARTS Work. I became more involved in music when I began music therapy. I began learning to play guitar when I started music therapy. I use music to feel happy. I listen to music at night to take it easy. It helps me feel relaxed. I love music!
Music means happiness. Music means life. Even if I am having a bad day, music makes everything okay. If I listen to “Love on the Brain” I smile and feel good. When I listen to music, I can do many things. I can sing, whistle, and move my body. It makes me feel really nice. Music to me means happiness.
On World Music Day, we should celebrate music because there is a lot of it everywhere. There are lots of different music to celebrate! We should celebrate by listening to songs we like.
Happy World Music Day!
