World Music Day

It is not necessary to have a perfect ear to enjoy music and participate in this activity; celebrate World Music Day in your preferred style. The event is consistently celebrated on June 21.

The History

The holiday first appeared in France in 1982 under the leadership of Maurice Fleuret. It aims to unite the music community, listeners, and musicians. Initially, the purpose of the event was to familiarize the public with new artists and genres by creating improvised concerts on the streets of cities. Now, novice composers and performers actively use the holiday to promote their own creativity on social media.

Interesting Facts

Even a person who does not know how to play a musical instrument or sing professionally is able to perceive rhythms and melodies and emotionally feel music.

  1. Plants and animals perceive music and react to changes in the background audio. Jazz is often played in greenhouses. Classical music is played on farms so cows can calm down and produce more delicious milk.
  2. The first musical instrument invented by ancient man may have been the flute. It appeared around 60 thousand years ago.
  3. Modern music trends show the spread of electronic music.

Creating and listening to music helps us find harmony with our inner feelings. Sometimes musical sounds help to express an attitude to reality better than words.

How to take part

Take your first lesson learning to play a musical instrument. Choose what attracts you the most: violin, guitar, or piano. Try to write your own melody. Modern multifunctional synthesizers can introduce a beginner to the basics of creating a harmonious sound. Open Spotify and get acquainted with the current trends; decide which genre and incarnation moves you more. Share your observations on your personal social media account!
