Music plays an essential role in our everyday life. We listen to music every day and even sometimes do not realize it. There are many resources where we can listen to music. We listen to the radio while driving our cars. We turn on the TV and watch movies where music influences our mind and makes people’s tremble at the fear. For several reasons, which I will mention bellow, I believe that music is important to humankind.

First of all, music is one of the best way to relax after stressful day. Many people prefer to listen to music in the evenings. For example, my cousin likes to listen to the classic music. He has a great collection of CD disks with many famous musical compositions. In old days people gathered around a fireplace and played and listened to music.

Second of all, music often helps people to cheer up. Personally, when something is bothering me I prefer to turn on my radio and listen to some of my favorite songs. It helps me to feel better about everything, leave my troubles behind and enjoy my life. I am sure that many people will agree with me on this issue.

Finally, music plays an essential role in different ceremonies. For example, I think it is rather difficult to imagine a wedding without solemn music or the Olympic Games without anthems.

In conclusion, I think that music is the unique language, which is understood by everyone all over the planet. Music is a great way of communication and people all over the world listen to the music of other nations and understand what an author wanted to tell by it.
