Why Is Music Important?

I see all the time that the arts are being cut out of the schools curriculum all the time due to budget cuts. Although I believe that all the arts (visual and performing) are important, I feel that music is especially important as it gives you that form of self expression that no other art form can. No matter who you are, where you’re from, your profession, etc you are prone to know music. That is just the way our minds work think about it when we were younger and trying to learn our abcs what did they use to teach it to us? Music!

I grew up in a very musically household, so music is my life. It kills me to hear that they are trying to take away the one thing that ties us all together. Last night I heard this song by J Cole called “Wet Dreams” and I thought it was pretty awesome and wanted to share it with you guys.
