I wish that everyone was exposed to the world of music. There are many people in the world that have not had the pleasure of watching musical performances as an audience member. Many people disregard music, as it often not considered as not important or irrelevant. I, however, have a different viewpoint.
Although music may not be essential in the sense of food and drink, it plays a significant mental role. There are frequent occasions where academic results are increased after listening to classical music, and there are some people who listen to music because it helps them focus. If you go to the gym regularly you will notice that people bring headphones. This is because while on the treadmill, or when doing any other type of exercise that requires constant activity, music can allow you to evade the stress from your life by almost captivating your mind so that all that you think about is the music. Coming home from a busy day at work, turning on the radio and just taking a minute or two to sit down and listen can relax your mind.
From a more practical point of view, modern pop artist such as Justin Bieber and Katy Perry live off the money their music makes . Great composers from long ago did the same, and gave pleasure to their audience. There have been, and still are, so many astounding composers and record artists, that I feel that we should at least try to understand how they have been so successful, and why they were drawn to the field of music in the first place. An awareness should be roused, and people should recognize the effect music has on people across the globe. I understand that many people cannot afford to go to musical performances, and if that is the case then I simply ask that they go to a public event, or just turn on the radio. The world of music should be accessible to everyone and anyone, no matter who they are, or where they are from.
