In the world not even one person is there who has not listened to music. Music is there in parties, festivals, cars, taxis but 99% of music is in our heart. My favourite song is Story of my life from One Direction. I love this song and I have heard it fifty-seven times. The first time I heard this song was when my sister put it on, on her phone. My mom says all songs have memories.
And in Hindi I like …… gosh there are so many songs ! I don’t know which one to choose. But if I have to choose one then it will be Party on my Mind from Race2. Every time in parties or get – togethers, I ask my father to put on Chittiyaan Kalaiyya because my younger cousin sisters love the song and they want me to teach them the dance! Then we play and laugh and there is joy inside us, but after they go just to remember them I put on the song and then I feel they are still there. Music brings peace to our heart, it calms you and all your worries go away.
That is why it is said MUSIC IS A PRAYER THAT EVERY HEART SINGS.

“He who sings, scares away his woes.” “There is nothing in the world so much like prayer, as music is.” are some old, but apt quotes.
Some people like to listen to music, many people like to sing, while others, can play musical instruments. Music nourishes us in all its forms. It always makes us feel positive in our outlook to life. In Hindu mythology, Saraswati is the goddess of knowledge, arts, wisdom, music & learning. She is shown playing the veena.
The Hindu deity lord Krishna is commonly depicted in a relaxed pose, playing a flute. When lord Shiva plays the Damru, he plays Omkara – the sound of Aum.
Even in Greek mythology the god Orpheus was celebrated as a singer and lyre player and goddess Athena played the Aulos (Flute).
The Greeks also believed that music could have a beneficial effect on both the mind and body of the listener.
During festivals we celebrate by playing music. It is a huge part of wedding celebrations in all cultures. Religious functions are incomplete without devotional music.
Hence we can easily conclude that music is a therapy that every person needs
