Do you recognize this song, "One good thing about music when it hits you feel no pain. So hit me with music, hit me with music now...?" Bob Marley released this song, Trenchtown Rock, in 1973. This is one of my favorites because Bob talks about using music as a way to escape the poverty and desperation of Trenchtown.
As Bob describes it, music transports us and enhances our mood. Often times we use music to enhance our focus when we study, to improve performance and energy when we work out, to assist when we meditate or to help us relax. Music can be and has been used for a lot of things. There is no surprise there.
There is a universal belief that music is an important and treasured art form, which is magical, powerful, and inspirational. Music speaks to us and tells us stories when words can’t. It helps us grow, as it is the language of mankind and it is a medium in which love and joy are shared. A child experiences this love when a mother sings a melody, lullaby or even a 90s Hip-Hop and R&B song. When we were kids, these music experiences gave us the early exposure to the types of music that we have grown to appreciate and build upon. This same music showed us love, inspired us and helped us grow into the individuals we are today.
For over 10 years, I've spent my time connecting devices in the wireless space but there is a better calling: to connect families, preserve memories and to create a better listening experience for the next generation.
