Music and Effects on Politics and Society

February 8, 2012 by  
Filed under Uncategorized

The first article we read is about music and its effects on society throughout history.  It describes how music is passed generation to generation as well as culture to culture.  Music keeps evolving and spreading.  Society takes a hold of music and relies on it for their social expression.  Many times arguments and fights occur because of music.  This is because music gives people an identity and a way to express themselves.  When people disagree on music, it can turn into personal debate.

The second article we read was written by David Little, a composer and artistic director.  He studied music history and whether politics and the art of music go hand in hand or not.  He argued that they do have some to do with each other, but not everything.  He says that you can either put emphasis on politics, or you can put the emphasis on the art of the music.  I agree that some songs do not have much political meaning, while others do.  If you have a highly political song, the emphasis is not on the art because it will take attention away from the meaning.  The same is true the opposite way if the focus is on the art.

  12. Music gives an approach to people. It gives them direction.

  13. If I was hiring and you gave me your resume listing a liberal arts education I would consider it a mark against you!. . I would consider a high school graduate who worked at a fast food place as being the better employee.. . Liberal arts degree means to me:. You have led a sheltered and pampered life, took the easy way out and spent more time partying that learning. You abused limited educational resources while more motivated, intelligent and hard working poor people were denied the opportunity you waisted.
