Love of Music Will Make You a Happier Person

Dear Son,

Today I find myself our on errands, and have landed in one of my favourite cafes, a little spot called “Wasted Space” that is full of art made by local students and hipsters, funky and creative people, and good music.  In fact they have a man working here whose job includes keeping fun music playing.

I love the art and the company, but it is really the music that keeps me coming back.  If I need to clear my head, I can just sit back and let the music wash over me.  I’ve come out of here more than once with a new CD on my “must have” list, or good memories on my mind. Music can have an incredible power to help you master your emotions:

  • Music can calm you and help you restore your mental balance.
  • Music can allow you to summon happy memories, or banish bad feelings.
  • Music can help you daydream, taking you on a journey through your Inner World.
  • Music can give you a common interest with others, and help you make friends.
  • Music can reshape how you see a situation.

Playing music on an instrument or by singing can be a powerful tool for expressing you creativity.  Few friendships can be closer or more exciting than the ones you build playing music in a band together.

Music is a part of my life every day.  I have a rich collection of albums and instruments that I can’t wait to share with you. While I may make you wait for a computer of your own, I will make sure you have a good music player very early on, and a music collection of your own to enjoy.

Songfully,
Dad
