Story for All Ages

Music

Music Sunday 2022

by East Shore Mighty Choir

Reading

“Music doesn’t lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.”- Jimi Hendrix

Music, whether vocal or instrumental, performed or communally experienced, has a unique way of unifying people. Irrespective of one’s tribe, spiritual affiliation, cultural identity, age or abilities, when people gather together through music they literally synch together. Recent studies have shown that when people sings together, their heartbeats and breathing synchronize. Numerous other studies have shown that group singing creates a sense of well-being, interconnectedness and has a lasting effect on boosting mood and reducing anxiety. Other studies have shown that engaging in music increases mental facility, memory and confidence, and can even boost one’s immune system. When children are exposed to music, their academic performance skyrockets across all disciplines. Participation in musical activities increases both cognition and lifespan among seniors. Babies who are exposed to music develop more fully and quickly in mental, physical and emotional capacities.

In short: groups of people who join together in music live longer, fuller, healthier, happier lives. Let’s celebrate the myriad ways music plays such a vital role in life.
