Music is Important in My Life

By Hailey A. O’Brien

Grade 4

I used to think that there was only three kinds of instruments but now i realize that there are four colonies with many instruments inside those groups. Did you know that the flute is in the woodwinds group even though it’s made of metal. music in my life is important because it gives me feelings of strength, it lets go of anger , and playing an instrument helps me learn in all areas of life

One reason music in my life is meaningful is because it gives me feelings of strength. Now let me explain, music is especially important because playing an instrument helps me learn. For instance Berthold Auerbach said, “Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” This quote is connected to feeling strong from music because music is like the broom that brushes away the dust covering your strength.

Another reason music in my life is foremost important is because it sets me free. One reason music sets me free because with music you can express anything also you can have many emotions, feelings. Merry, sad, joyful, angry, and serious. To show that music sets me free is because you can make up your own song or your own dance moves to anything, you can go kooky—“dance like nobody’s watching”. Music sets me free because when you are getting ready for anything that’s coming up you could also play calming music and dance to that and be free. Be like jello and just move.

Although, music in my life is important is that playing an instrument helps me learn in all areas of life. For example playing an instrument helps me learn and it gives me feelings of strength and it sets me free. Especially music in my life is important is because playing an instrument helps me learn in all areas of life. One time I sat at the piano and I knew how to play parts of ‘“Mary Had a Little Lamb” and I loved playing piano. I sat at the piano and I was going to play 3 notes from the song that I learned but out of nowhere I matched the first 6 notes of the song! “Great job Hailey, You just matched the first 6 notes of ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb,’” said my dad.

As I’m closing I want to leave you with one final thought about how music is powerful in my life, it gives feelings of strength to many people; it sets everyone free and that playing an instrument helps anyone learn in all areas of life. Now home go and turn on your music and sing, dance or play an instrument.
