One thought on “Music and Healing

  1. Reflection
    I was looking up some last minute information on music and healing and came upon this quote. I thought this quote was amazing! It expresses exactly how I feel. Music is more than just words or a beat. Music express human nature and all that we have gone through as a species. Then I looked up who said this quote and it added so much more knowing that he played an active part in the community by giving speeches. He used the power of word to get his message out, yet he still believed that music had a contributing power.
