Many people believe that modern music can have a negative impact on the young. Others believe the effect of modern music is positive.
Discuss both these views and give your opinion.
Music is one of the greatest things that humans have created. Modern music has a lot of different genres, ranging from pop, rock, jazz, dubstep, and more. I believe that music has plenty of advantages, and is a way for humans to bond together and create wonderful memories, but there are also disadvantages.
In my opinion, music can pose a powerful influence on human emotions with powerful lyrics and beautiful melodies and catchy beats. Studies show that modern music or any music for that matter lightens the mood, boosts memory and reduces anxiety. Many people, specifically students, use music as a way to help focus on studying in school, ranging from helping with homework or studying for tests.
Some disadvantages however can show that music can cause hearing loss for others if they are not careful. If others are not careful in loud places such as concerts or festivals without hearing protection, it could damage their ear and cause permanent damage to their ears, making it difficult to listen or hear things. Compared to positive examples, although music can lighten the mood for some, music also has the ability to trigger bad memories. As mentioned, some lyrics in songs are incredibly powerful. Some may even find it too powerful to the point where it affects their emotions. It is important to remember to listen to the right music that will not decrease the happiness.
Overall, music is something that everyone can appreciate and I think the positives outweigh the negatives and can prove to be one of the most beautiful, inspiring, and wonderful inventions ever made.
