Transcript of Music Passion Project

There are so many different types of songs and artists in the world. All of them have different styles of writing songs or playing music or singing music. There is all sorts of music that people can listen to and enjoy because there is always some type of music that people like.
Why am I passionate about music?
I am passionate about listening to music because listening to music takes me away from the world. If I just have to get away from life I can just put on headphones and listen to music. It also can change my emotions and become happier listening to some of my favorite songs.

I listen to songs all the time, while I am doing homework it helps me concentrate, or while I wash dishes I can listen to music as to not get bored, if I take a walk I bring music with me, or listen to music when I have nothing better to do.
Some of my Favorite Music Artists and Bands are...
