Passion— a strong and barely controllable emotion towards someone or something. Each individual has his or her unique and captivating passion. People’s passions could be viewed as illogical or irrational by other people because it differs from their opinion or goes against social-cultural norms. That is why having a deep and affectionate zealous devotion towards someone or something is individualistic and varies from person to person. My passion is art.
Similarly to how everyone has a different passion, the idea and concept of what is considered to be art is perceived by individuals adversely. Generally, art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. However, art to me is abundant and almost anything I consider a work of art; but more specifically and significantly above all is the art of music. Music is vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion. Music has the ability to alter someone’s mood in an instant, as much as a chord or a riff or a series of arpeggios can either lift an individual’s spirit and vitality, or alter their frame of mind to gather deep sentimental thoughts of self and well-being. Famous masters of music such as Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky were able to sway the beliefs and even the lives of people who took part in the privilege to auscultate in their harmonious and wondrous symphonies and concertos. This is but only one of the many reasons why music is my unshakable passion.
No other form of art can have such an impact on an individual’s personality, mood, state of being, or even life. Music is the universal language of all humans and even some animals such as birds and dolphins. These are just some of the reasons why music is my devoted passion. If one were to gather a 100 different people of diverse culture, ethnicity, and religion; and was to play for them a piece of music such as Beethoven’s “Für Elise” , they would all react to it the same way and answer relatively similar responses if asked the question “What is this piece of music about? What is the overseeing tone?”, that it is an emotional and heartfelt piece of music that shows love and/or sadness and occasional joy. Music, no matter what genre, age, artist, or band, always has a message throughout it. Any song old or young carries an emotional or logical substance and significance. Another reason why music is my passion is because one person can create a work of musical art, and a group of people that come together can also make a musical masterpiece. Music, unlike many other forms of art, can actively bring people together instead of driving them apart. With that being said, there are many ways music can help people in need from all walks of life.
Music is not limited to pianos and guitars, almost anything could be made a fully functioning instrument. This is another beauty of music, that anyone could make music, with even their voices and body parts. The South African tribes are a prime example of this. Music has helped them bond and grow closer together than driving them apart into secludedness from one another and hostile as they once were. If given the right ear so to say, one can compose himself or herself a piece of music, a work of art, significant to themselves or to others. I plan on using my passion to aid others in various ways. I write and compose my own music regularly; mostly a mix between classical and jazz types. From my own experience, a song written specifically for someone during a time of anguish or heartache has proven to be invaluable and emotionally uplifting. I want to compose music that people will enjoy and listen to. Music that will inspire people to do what they have always wanted to accomplish; music that will lift a person from tears of sadness to smiles of confidence. Music is my passion, and I shall help those in need with my music, friend, acquaintance, or stranger regardless.
Passion is a strong and barely controllable emotion towards someone or something. Music is vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion. Music is my passion. It has shaped me into who I am and led me to develop numerous friendships and inseparable bonds with dear friends. It has formed significant relationships between people of all ages, groups of status, and nations of all differences. I will spread my love for music throughout everyone, help them with beautiful sequences of harmonics, grace notes, and arpeggios strung together to form novel and beauteous works of art. That is my true passion.
