Music, the universal language. The many genres of music speak to the heart in a way almost no words can. Music gives an added layer of meaning, an added dimension, to almost every situation whether it’s time alone, a social occasion, or watching a movie or a tv show. It has the power to heighten the level of engagement and awareness in all of these and many more activities.
