Universal Music Day is set aside in October to celebrate music. The 4Th annual global celebration is October 9, 2010. Its founder, Susan Patricia Golden, has a mission to re-energize the nation and world with art, specifically music. Susan emphasizes that we are born with the ability to create, and we need to find ways to take advantage of our abilities.
Celebrate today by creating a song or other piece of art. Encourage children to write songs or create melodies.
Make a musical instrument. You can even use common items to create music: pots and spoons, table tops, glasses of water, etc.
Experience a new genre of music. Go to your local music store or search iTunes to find different types of music. Once you have a song you like, you can use it to set up a station on Pandora radio. Their Music Genome Project identifies each element of songs you like and convert those into complete play lists of songs you may have never heard before.
Read a book about music or about music history. Introduce your children to artists you loved when you were younger.
Go dancing! Since Universal Music Day is on the second Saturday of October, go listen to music at a local attraction.
Have an “Open Mic” night. If you are talented enough to do this in public, go for it. If you are more comfortable with friends and family, host a party in your living room. Karaoke is lots of fun.
