Music is so central to many of our lives.  Isn’t it the case that certain songs instantly bring back poignant memories, some joyous, some humorous, some melancholy?  Sometimes, belting out a tune can be remarkably cathartic, a way to cope with anxiety or to celebrate life’s sweet moments.  Even Plato had something to say about it: “Music is a moral law.

Gianna Paratore is in the seventh grade at the Gordon School in East Providence.  She lives with her family in Warren.
