Why Choose Classical as the Kind of Music to Learn if You Are not a Fan of It?
These days it's quite common to meet people, especially youth, who claim that they
do not like classical music. And how can anyone love something they've never tried
to understand? There are people who understand, appreciate and love it, and prefer
it as the kind of music to learn and enjoy. Are you not as smart as them?
Everything in our world moves, changes and develops. And music is not an exception.
Certainly modern rhythms considerably differ from what was offered to the public
by composers centuries ago. The taste, hearing of a person also changes and develops
along with the times, and what we hear creates our world of impressions. All this
makes a huge impact not only on our character, but also on our life.
Music, as is known, consists of sounds, and each sound is comprised of certain vibrations
(if you remember physics). Each vibration carries a stream of energy. In other words,
when we hear music, we are filled not just with sounds, but something much greater
than that – energy. And whatever we choose as the music to learn or listen to, influences
our character development! That is certainly something to consider when choosing
the kind of music to learn.
Sometimes when you turn on the radio or TV and hear music, we can say with a great
deal of assurance whether we like it or not. Why is that so? Because the stream of
energy which produces such music either coincides with our internal vibrations, or
it does not.
Thus, using a simple musical test you can define what kind of a person you spend
your time with and what your level of spiritual development is at! In fact the more
beautiful the music to learn and listen to, the softer and kinder our heart is; just
like our actions, as music is one of the parts of our spiritual food.
Teenagers and youth intuitively use the above described method and quickly define
a new person who either joins, or leaves their group. And they ask only one question:
“What kind of music do you listen to?”
And now let's sidetrack a little. Imagine what would happen if you were to deprive
a person of poetry, literature, art and music to learn or listen to...
Have you ever spoken to people who do not read books? Or to those who listen to music
that comprises only of undefined noise where a melody is difficult or impossible
to distinguish? Were you pleased with such conversation? And now try to talk to those
who really appreciate the beauty and art of music and carefully choose what music
to learn themselves. You will notice a huge difference right away!
So what is classical music and what does it gives people? Wikipedia defines classical
music as “the art music produced in a broad period from roughly the 9th century to
present times,” that has passed the test of time and has an audience in a modern
Due to ideal harmonious combinations of sounds, classical music carries such a powerful
stream of energy that listeners want to listen to it over and over again, regardless
of how old the piece of music is. This energy awakes in a human being the most remarkable
feelings which make his life more fulfilling and interesting, which is why it is
ideal to choose classical music as the form of music to learn.
f a person says that he does not like classical music, he simply confuses both you
and himself. He just has to remember all those times when he'd heard a familiar tune
and started to whistle it or sing along. These people often do not know the name
of the piece they've heard, but the fact remains that it influences them in the most
And if you are not sure what classical music will give you if you pick it as the
form of music to learn, all you have to do is go to a live concert of classical music,
preferably a one that it is accompanied by historical and bibliographic data on lives
and creative work of composers. It will help you see absolutely new colours and sensations
that you've not felt before.
The same thing concerns fine art. If the person not familiar with art, he would come
to the art gallery, wander the halls, look at the exhibits, and at the end be impressed
by one or two works (and possibly none). But if he takes a tour that is conducted
by a guide who will give you some insight on the various works, then our dilettante
will be impressed by quite a few paintings. Try it, and you'll see that it really
All children without exception love music to learn and enjoy. You can see it from
their reactions. And if the child himself reaches for it, it means that he needs
this beauty. And if you, dear parents, did not get "musical" care from your moms
and dads in childhood and you think you do not like classical music, it does not
mean that you should deprive your child of this art. What if it is his destiny? Give
him the energy that classical music brings, and you will see how the life of your
child can change!
