355 Music Quotes That Will Fuel Your Soul

Without one another humankind and art cannot function. You can also say that music and art are like basic human functions. Whatever it may be and however grand or tiny, we have the burning desire to create. Either to take pleasure in it or make it, the interaction with sound is unavoidable.

Whether for the emotional response, creating, performing or enjoyment in listening, people have always found music significant in their lives. For contemporary concert music or classical music this is no different. The problem we all know with music is that it is little known and hence underappreciated however, both musics have immense worth for our society.

Concert or classical music is not a huge part of people’s lives in mainstream American culture. In the last two decades, there are still stigmas that contribute to this, as well as the practices of the government. Classical music is for the well-educated, rich and older is still believed by many people.

The majority decided that concert music is not “for them”, with the impression that concert music has on society due to the belief that it has no worth or relevance to their lives. It may seem to be changing but in mainstream American society, music and arts are usually looked upon as an extra discipline that is not essential to the function of our culture and society.
