Unformatted text preview: So with that being said; I know this stuff because I am a musician and wedding singer myself. I have a band that performs at Chaldean/Middle Eastern weddings, and have been involved in music since I was 6. I play piano by ear (memorizing melodies and playing them back as they were heard without reading notes), I learned to play the drums through elementary, middle, and high school. I am surrounded by music all of the time. Whether its upbeat techno music during workouts, Middle Eastern music during weddings, Top40 at the bar or club, classical music while cramming for exams, or whatever is on during my daily commute to work or school. As the lecture taught us, each composition or even instrument has a specific purpose or a message that the composer or musician wants us to get out of listening to it. This is why music has such affect on people and why they listen to specific songs at specifics times working out, studying, break up etc. Thanks for reading...
