MUSIC IS FASCINATING – it is a timeless expression of emotion, ritual and exchange – a form of communication through almost all cultures. Scientists are still looking for the source of our fascination with music, and come across nightingales, Paleolithic flutes, nerve cells and the ‘chill effect’.
Like everyone else, I have experienced music in so many ways, but there is one story about its impact on me that I am going to tell you now.
I was working as a Fitness Instructor giving classes daily, always with the newest songs playing in the charts. People loved to move to various rhythms and melodies, they loved the natural high it produced, and they loved to go to as many classes as possible – to get their ‘fix’. I ran more and more dance classes, sometimes with as many as 80 people!
