Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about music and culture. There is no denying the impact of music on people and their lives. Numerous studies have shown that music, regardless of genre, tempo, or place of origin, has a variety of effects on human experiences.
A person may experience a shift in mood or have the motivation to carry out a task that would be too boring to do in quiet while listening to music. Music has an impact on specific people, but its overall effect on a population is yet unknown. One may contend that because music originates from a specific civilization, it belongs to that society. In this instance, a certain culture dominates and shapes the music.
On the other hand, one can surmise that music has the power to influence society and alter the path of history. As a result, music separates itself from cultural phenomena and takes precedence over them. Alternatively, there may be a connection between culture and music where one might impact the other.
Music has a big impact on perception and mind, even though society may incorporate some of its beliefs and notions into it. In addition, the issue of the musical style adds to the discussion.
For instance, there are differences between classical music and popular music that extend beyond just the sound and into how they affect a person’s life. The impact of music should not be discounted, though. Both the individual lives of people and the culture at large are impacted by music. Thank you.
