Music is able to form your brain connections in a very deep level and it can slove and change things. Through changing you and your approach and attitude, music can change your everyday life.

When you fall in love, can you grab your beloved one by force and hope that things work out? I do not think so. Better stay positive, sensitive, caring, steady and enjoy the play.
