The world is facing the challenge of a coronavirus. Our social lives have come to a halt as we are being told to “social distance.”
Many people now find themselves alone in isolation. At such times we can turn to music for comfort.
Music can lift your spirits as well as people around you. In Italy, where everyone was ordered to stay home people took to their balconies and rooftops to sing or play instruments for both themselves and their neighbors who could listen.
This is a good time to pick up your guitar and sing with your family. Or you can learn how to play guitar, or banjo, or ukulele or fiddle or any other instrument. If you don’t play an instrument, you can dance or sing to music. You could also listen to a great piece of classical music such as Beethoven’s 9th, or perhaps Mozart”s “Magic Flute” opera?
