The Value of Live Music

Evaluating our “needs” is going to be an important part of The 21st. century because, when we come to consider how we are satisfying those needs, we may need to reconsider our satisfiers. Here we can reflect on the function and The Value of Music.

VALIDITY OF OCCUPATION

(Perspective: “The Live Music Industry”)

  • People have some abstract sense of good will towards humanity but don’t support those around them. Then it is important for those people to recognise the value of the efforts of those around them, Then it is important for those people to recognise the value of the efforts of those around them, because that is real life, and the consequences are immediate and profound..
  • If the community is not supporting a person there are some possible explanations, like, someone’s ability may not up to standard (a person needs to have an acceptable level of competency in order for it hold the attention of a non-interested listener), or, the listeners have a taste preference is inconsistent with the style of the performer (a listener can choose what they want to listen to, usually consistent with their ability to concentrate)
    someone’s bility may not up to standard (a person needs to have an acceptable level of competency in order for it hold the attention of a non-interested listener), or,
    the listeners have a taste preference inconsistent with the style of the performer (which is usually consistent with the listeners ability to concentrate)
  • The society that we live in has a class type system. Certain levels of achievement are only available to those who are financially resourced. Competency is only a small percentage the result of natural ability and the rest is hard work.
  • Striving for excellence:
    1. Advantage – sense of fulfilment, heightened levels of joy & experience, higher levels of human achievement, self-esteem.
    2. Disadvantage – can cause burnout or injury if not done correctly.
  • Mediocrity:
    1. Advantage – contentment. acceptance.
    2. Disadvantage – limited experience.

BENEFITS OF LIVE MUSIC

TO THE MUSICIAN

  • Achievement (personal) leading to a sense of satisfaction.
  • Heightened achievement with a good audience.
  • To achieve good results one must be totally in the moment and focused with a relaxed state of mind.
  • Striving for excellence moves one toward unlimited ways of thinking.
  • Satisfies the need for occupation, learning, creating, imagination, spontaneity, and fun.
  • One needs to be organised in the mind to be successful.
  • Success brings sense of belonging and self-esteem.
  • Develops sensitivity v Outlet for passion.
  • Sense of accomplishment comes with achievement; fulfilment comes with success.
  • Music provides a higher form of communication i.e. bridges language barrier (2 way sensitivity).

TO THE AUDIENCE:

  • Upon being exposed to high levels of achievement and energy one can be inspired to aspire to achieve something more in one’s own life.
  • Being proud and inspired: 89% of people agree “I feel proud when I see the creative talent of Australians being recognised locally and internationally and 85% agree that “I find the skill of a great artist, musician or writer very inspiring.” 87% of people agree that “The arts are an important part of helping young people to learn how to express themselves”. (Australia Council Report “Australia and the Arts”)
  • A group of people sitting together in silence with a focus creates heightened levels of energy and awareness, for both the musician and the audience.
  • Qualities of concentration, patience, relaxation, understanding, imagination, analysis ability, and appreciation are either created or fostered.
  • It seems to me that relaxation is inversely proportionate to concentration, patience, appreciation, understanding, and imagination. It is a paradox of reality, as all those things require attention.
  • Having an excuse to bring people together creates a sense of community and belonging, and satisfies the need for company.
