Music means so many different things to so many different people. Music is a part of culture, it brings people together. Music fills the void left behind by silence, bringing something out of nothing.

Music has an impact on people. It affects everyone in different ways, and some people might not see music as much, but to others it’s their whole world.

A lot of times music is used to pump people up. This could be at parties, before some kind of game or competition, or just individually.However, to me, music is something I can rely on. I listen to music everyday, and it’s a huge part of who I am. I can honestly say that I would not be the same person without music.

Music has always been a part of my life too. My dad, Chuck Weigant, runs his own business, CHW Guitars. So growing up, I was involved with that sometimes, helping my dad with repairs, or changing the strings on guitars.

I also listen to a pretty wide variety of music. This ranges from hip hop, rap, rock, trap, and some alternative styles. This of course is also growing as I discover new music. 

A lot of people may see music a small thing that’s just there for parties and long car rides, but music means so much more than that. 

Music is different all over the world, and you don’t have to be a professional to make music. Some musicians get discovered early on, and others late in there lives. Others might not even get discovered at all. Music is a powerful language that speaks to people in different ways. Feeling connected to the lyrics you hear, of just vibing with the beat. 

Most importantly music is constantly changing. There’s always something new to listen to and discover.
