Integrating music into our everyday lives.

My idea is all about making music and singing as a tool to set a positive cycle in motion that will encourage respect, communication and expression, which to me, are key ingredients to a society of individuals who can truly change the world.

No, this is not a new idea - but I think it's something we forgot how to do, and I want to help us remember.

I made a video to explain how we can reap the benefits of integrating music into our everyday lives called "Growing Back into Music", which you can watch here:

I'm so curious what you all think!

    May 9 2013: I just read this article and I HAD to share it with you!!! It's amazing!
    • May 9 2013: WOW Bogdan, how can I thank you for sharing this?! It's truly amazing, and makes so much sense!

      I love the last paragraph, it brings tears to my eyes.

      "You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not. When you feel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, it doesn’t. In the end, we shall all recognize our song and sing it well. You may feel a little warbly at the moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keep singing and you’ll find your way home."

        May 9 2013: :) You already did! And you're welcome!

        I also want to thank you for making me more aware about music and all what's related to it.
        Since I read your idea and engaged into this discussion I was more and more aware of music, my music and now this article.
        So once again, thanks for helping me grow! (i consider each piece of information a step further in our growth as human beings)
        • May 10 2013: Bogdan, how wonderful that you have become more aware of the music that's already in you, that's an achievement we can both celebrate!!
