Music leads to intelligence, people are always seeing the children on the Today Show playing Beethoven at age 5. Or the people that are blind but fine music as an escape.

I hope this helps you. Music for me is an escape from civilization. it allows people of all ages to get away for a little while. a person can always find something to match their mood. Music is food for the soul.

Enjoy writing. To have a topic like that would be great!
