The arts are one of the categories in humanities I find interesting, especially music. I find music is very important in everyday modern life. Now days, people don’t seem to leave their home without some type of mp3 player. I am specifically interested in how the different types of music affect each individual. The type of the music we may listen to may reflect our race, home environment/ region, our language and style of dress as well as persons personality. If we can understand the relation between a persons and the music they prefer to listen to we can have a better understanding of each other. A person does not have to be a musician to express them to music; they can dance to the beat, or even just have a connection with the lyrics of another person’s song that’s very personal. Since I am a music major, as a musician, music is not just what I do. Music is more than just a part of me. I want to research opinions on how people believe music effects society. I want to see if there is a direct connection between peoples preferred music and their personality. I want to show the importance of music.
