If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be in music education, music therapy, and music performance. First, experiencing music has many beneficial effects on the human biological system. A few of the many benefits include reducing stress, reducing anxiety, easing pain, improving motivation, improving cognitive performance, enhancing blood cell function, reducing blood pressure, improving sleep quality, relieving symptoms of depression, elevating mood, inducing a meditative state, boosting immune function, improving concentration, improving attention, enhancing learning, improving memory, and much more. Second, experiencing music brings joy into one’s life. Music will literally make the world a happier and better place to live in. Imagine if music education was apart of every child’s life. Imagine if music therapy was mandatory in the medical profession. Imagine the difference music can make in one’s life.
The specific steps to reach my goal would be to finish my Associate of Arts Degree from College of DuPage. The next step would be to continue my education to an accredited school in Illinois for a Bachelors Degree in music education or music therapy.
