Composers write the music that they want to write because of the way they perceive mus... ... middle of paper ... ...and changes or alters the concepts and perceptions of music. This genre seeks to experiment with sounds in a completely different way than conventional music does. Everything from the audience to musical notation is reconsidered and presented in a new, original manner. It is an important part of the perception and development of music. As musical concepts and technology change, experimental music will continue to modify and broaden the definition of music.
Like so many other naturally occurring phenomena, a discipline has been developed over centuries to help us interact with music, and that discipline is what I and those of my profession are charged with teaching. Before addressing the need for music instruction in our schools I would like to briefly examine the need for education of any kind. Education is a means of making sure our society has a given set of knowledge. The set of knowledge we perceive ourselves as needing changes based on our surroundings and the issues we are dealing with. In American education's early history we perceived ourselves as needing a set of knowledge that included a common language and common view of history, as well as knowledge of those things with which we would interact every day.
For me personally, music appreciation is defined as looking at different pieces of music and musical forms, and learning to find appreciation for them. This appreciation is formed not only by listening to several pieces of music, but by learning to understand what you may be listening too. This involves introducing yourself to many pieces of music and learning to interpret, what makes each piece different and unique. Understanding the historical background and societal changes that have taken place during the creation of the musical piece, is also an important factor to consider. Music is not only creative, but it also makes up part of a societies history.
In conclusion I believe that music can create a great impact on ones learning skills and the level at which someone receives and processes new information and how easily they can recall information that has been paired, influenced, or inspired by music.

Scientists used it as a model to study how a musician’s brain enables the advanced and complicated motor skills necessary to perform a musical work, how the brain processes verbal versus nonverbal communication, and how it processes complex time information. After years of such research, two findings stand out as particularly important for using music in rehabilitation. First, music learning changes the brain. And second, the brain areas activated by music are not unique to music, these areas of the brain that process music also processes other functions. An example of the first finding, that music learning changes the brain, is research clearly showing that through such learning, auditory and motor areas in the brain grow larger and interact more efficiently.

In the society of media, in every image, photo, song, painting, sculpture, ect… there will always be a form of composition present.
