Music as a Language Bridge

Updated: Mar 15, 2019


Music is a universal experience, and a 'language of the emotions' that can communicate all shades of feelings, thoughts, dreams, etc. 

These are the very same emotions and feeling that are sometimes difficult to verbalize.

For those with limited or no verbal language, the strategic use of Music

can be the bridge between someone's inner world, and the voice of expression to others.

"Isn't that what we all want?  To be heard, and understood?" (Seal)

Music is also an extraordinary language bridge across cultural and language differences.  Using facial expressions, a phrase book or a communication device, body language and of course sign language all work, but there is something globally primal about music that draws individuals together and breaks down differences. It is the one universal thing that does not need to be translated to be understood...such is the miracle of music.

"Music is one of the most powerful things that the world has to offer.  No matter what race or religion or nationality or sexual orientation or gender that you are, it has the power to unite us." (Lady Gaga)
