Music: The Universal Language



By Raghav Gupta

Music is one of the greatest human creations. It’s like a strong therapy that can help us relax. Some people also see it as a means to escape from certain difficult situations in life. Others simply enjoy it!

Our music teacher, Ms. Nidhi Sharma, has helped me to become a good singer. She encouraged me to overcome my fear of singing in front of a huge audience. Not just that, she made me realise how music can relax me even while preparing for examinations. I am really thankful to her for sharing such wonderful techniques with me.

I believe that music is the key to creativity. It activates the intellect. And, the importance of music in life can be discerned by its ability to bring positive changes in a student’s life – well, music affects the learning process of students – it can be a great tool for memorising. And it certainly has the potential to become an interesting and engaging learning technique in classrooms in the near future.

Even birds, dogs, and whales can perceive music. It is considered ‘a universal language’ because we can converse and share stories without even speaking a single word to each other. Music overcomes all communication barriers and its ability to act as an emotional outlet is enormous.

Music transports you on a long journey. It slows down the passage of time. We’ve all experienced how listening to our favourite tunes or songs can elevate our spirits. The same is true when it comes to making music. After choir practice, we students always feel content and relaxed.

According to some doctors, music therapy has been a great source of help in the treatment of dementia, depression, anxiety, trauma, etc. There are many children with learning disabilities who have responded to the music pieces.

Music is even used for meditation in many workshops. It helps in releasing emotions which are hidden deep inside them.

Music has an impact on everyone’s lives in different ways. It can transform the emotions and feelings of people within seconds. It lessens the stress, pain, struggles and brings out positivity in our daily lives.

Lastly, I would say that music holds the power to bring people together: to express, understand and comprehend each other in a better way.
