It is something that people of all ages, religions, genders, and ethnicity can understand and enjoy. This is what truly makes music a powerful force in our world. What happens though when authors choose to put this power in their writing, though? What kind of similar messages and questions about music are raised in pieces from The Romantic Period and the Modern Era? While there may not seem like there is much in common from two eras hundreds of years apart, there are indeed some similar themes in the poems and stories from these two time frames.
Lastly, the element of music is very important. Rhythm, tempo, melody, harmony, and tone (Joseph Kerman). Now I must admit when I saw all the different element to music I was baffle beyond believe. I am the type of music lover who turn on the radio or I-pad and just start jamming to my favorite songs. Not once did I consider all the different element that were being incorporated to make the
Our Hippocampus stores our experiences through music and enables musicians to remember musical pieces. Finally, the Amygdala allows for emotional reactions to music.

We reminisce on past events through melodies and lyrics. Music has the ability to intensify pleasure and plaster despondency. All musicians have had the ability to impact the history of music and the future implications of music through a personalized method. Not only did the Yardbirds, as a whole, change musical history but also the individual members created an enormous impact on other musicians of their time period, and the way future generations view music in general.

Throughout my life I’ve made strong connections with songs; experiencing bad breakups, the issues in society, and music has also allowed me to find tranquility while studying. Music is not solely
Throughout my life, music has always been a major influence. It has the power to change my mood when I'm feeling down, but the thing I find most intriguing about music is that it doesn't always end up improving your mood: like all forms of art, it imitates life, which is not always portrayed in a positive light.

So when I saw that music appreciation was a class that I could take, my preconceived perception is that it would be a very easy class because it was about a subject that I loved.
Jimmy Brown (2000) says, “Keep your mind and ears open, and don’t be afraid to wade into unfamiliar musical waters”. Now that you’ve decided on your song’s subject and have an idea how you want it to sound, write it! Play around; strum some simple chords and notes. Try to get a feel for the sounds you need to back up your voice. No one can tell you what to write, but it never hurts to ask others opinions.
