Over time, both studies and word of mouth have depicted that specific positive changes happened to individuals after they listened to music. This is true, and in a way, music has been shown to boost a person’s brainpower.

Moreover, communities are suffering from all sorts of infections. With such a trend the only solution is to continue educating people and being a role model to them that we are educating
