Music is something understood by people of all ages. Depending on the pitch and flow of the melody, it can have the power to create a myriad of emotions in mere seconds. It can brighten a mood, ease tension, or create a dramatic feeling. For those who perform or compose music of any kind, it can speak to them on an even deeper level. It’s almost as if they can feel the notes pulsing through their veins.
