Great men who have crested their foot prints in the sands of time have proved to us the power of Music. The act of singing or playing a musical instrument goes beyond mere entertainment. It has a healing effect on the mind, body and soul. In fact, it is the only activity that engages the left and right hemispheres of the brain. The left hemisphere of the brain is the reasoning side, while the right hemisphere is the creative side.
Albert Einstein, the great scientist was pronounced unfit to do academic work when he was a boy. However, when Music was brought into his life through the violin his parents bought for him, both brain hemispheres flowed together; which resulted in the manifestation of probably the most brilliant genius in history! There are many other similar example of other outstanding personalities of the world
Yes! Nigeria needs to know and apply this. We need to take advantage of our natural gifts. Music is one of them. A countless number of musically talented youths abound and are willing to make the best out of life and be useful to themselves and the society. They can perform better in their various subjects or courses if they are given the financial support to learn musical skills.
It is interesting to know that the top three ranking nations of the world all have mandatory Music requirements for students in the lower grade levels. The results speak for themselves.
Singing or playing a musical instrument has a formatting effect on the brain. These activities when done for a while in the early hours of the day, promote orderly storage and recovery of data in the brain. They uniquely enhance higher brain functions required for science and engineering courses, chess and mathematics.
If we must move forward in Nigeria, then we must start supporting our youths to learn Music; we must teach our children right. It’s never too late. NIGERIA’S GOT TALENT! We need to bring it alive with the sounds of Music!
