The power of melodies
Everyone has the natural ability and need to make and listen to music. We experience this every day, whether we are working or are looking for relaxation, are in church or in a bar, are at a party or putting children to bed. The easiest way to make music is by singing songs, especially if you have the tune in your head. Songs – with tunes that everyone knows or quickly learns – provide the best means of connecting people one to another, particularly if they can enjoy it together. It has been shown by science that singing makes you happy: singing produces endorphins, oxytocin and dopamine: hormones and neurotransmitters that constitute the most important triggers of pleasure in our brains.
