Life is hard enough. Isn’t it? It starts by bearing with childhood curiosity that gets many children hurt, bruised or wounded. Chances are that you have a childhood scar. It goes on to wading through the murky teenage years. What did you do that keeps haunting you to date? It then culminates into stressing with finding a footing in your twenties. It doesn’t mean you can’t make it. Yes you can, hustler!
Thank God for music though. Hip-hop, RnB, Reggae, Ragga, Country, Kapuka, Afrofusion, Rock, Genge and all those that fall neither here nor there. According to America Music Therapy Association, Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. Now that’s too professional. We don’t have much time to pay close attention to the definition. Listening to lots of music without prior knowledge of this definition in itself is soothing enough.
According to Brain HQ blog article by Karen Merzenich related to Neuroscience, our brain is primed early on to respond to and process music. Research has shown that day-old infants are able to detect differences in rhythmic patterns. Mothers across cultures and throughout time have used lullabies and rhythmic rocking to calm crying babies. She also points out that, “our motor systems naturally entrain, or match, to a rhythmic beat. When a musical input enters our central nervous system via the auditory nerve, most of the input goes to the brain for processing. But some of it heads straight to motor nerves in our spinal cord. This allows our muscles to move to the rhythm without our having to think about it or “try.” It’s how we dance to music, tap our foot to a rhythm, and walk in time to a beat.” Music commands attention. You hear your favourite tune and stop to listen. It taps into our emotions and makes us feel a certain way.
