The Best Australian Music Holidays

Moms adorably hum to their unborn babies. Kids develop their language skills singing the language-stimulating nursery rhymes. Students are able to improve their study habits and memory while listening to their favorite songs. Adults who seem to be overwhelmed by the multitude of life duties get de-stressed by their most wanted playlists. People who are going through tough times find music cathartic- a refuge in moments of difficulty. Those who have found fascination in forming musical librettos and creating melodies are deemed fortunate, making a living out of something they are truly passionate of. Music affects everyone from different walks of life, regardless of background, age and gender. They are soothed by the carefully crafted and shaped melodies, while other pieces pique the interests of some listeners, making them critique and arguably express what they have in mind. Regardless of the hows and whys music could influence and at times, disturb us, it’s clear, music is an integral part of our lives. And just like how we get spellbound by the glittering surface of the sea and its mysterious depths, the sweet and breezy pecks of the wind on our skin, and the heavenly taste of that mouthwatering and syrupy Molten Chocolate Cake, we can never deny the fact that indifference to music is impossible.

How People with Hearing Impairment Enjoy Music

This also applies to people with hearing impairment. Some of us may initially think that music does not exist to them. It does, and just like how the interests of hearing persons vary, they react to music and appreciate it in a different but special way. They may not actually hear the exact melodies, the lyrics and the tunes, but they mainly express joy in music through the sense of touch. Feeling the vibrations first and sensing the harmonies, they get to take pleasure in it just like everyone else. Music is equally invigorating to them, making them sing, tap their hands and dance to the beat!  The loud music and rhythm bounce to their bodies, allowing them to have an amazing musical experience. Aah, what an incredbile way of creating a genuinely deep and soulful connection! They are also able to embrace the beauty of music lyrically, understanding the words and finding their life’s meaning, and recognizing the different aspects of life itself on the heartfelt lexis that make up a song.  Just like Beethoven, there are talented people with hearing impairment, who became musicians, song-writers and singers, who have undeniably created a huge contribution to the music industry.
