For me who was born and raised in the city of Jakarta and surrounding areas, got to know the music from radio, television, the internet and others. I remember when I was a child, my dad often sang an old songs and played with his guitar. Every morning, my parents always turned on the radio to hear the old songs , especially on a holidays. When we had a family gathering, sometimes we sang and dance together. Many of my cousins are capable of playing an musical instruments. As for me, I only capable of playing flute and pianika but I still love the music so much. Although not as a professional, I also enjoy myself in singing a songs even though it is only in the bathroom. Luckily, now we could find any karaoke places, so I could express my hobbies in singing.
When I was a student, I also more quickly understand the lessons when I was studying and at the same time I was also listening a songs. So, now, while I am working I also more likely to listen a good songs, it could help me in lowering my stress level.
Music is close to my love life as well. When I feel sad and heartbroken, I like to listen a songs that have a same meaning with my love life. It could become my problem solving to cope my sadness. But instead, the song also could be my mood booster. For me, the music is beautiful, so that every night I still listen to the songs until I fall asleep. So how about you? How big does the musical influence to your life?
