Music is something almost everyone loves. Looking in the hallways, you can see dozens of students with headphones on or earbuds in, just blocking out the rest of the world, momentarily. Buena is filled with various music genres, artists, and songs that people love. Music brings people together, makes people have better days, and means a considerable amount to students here at Buena.

The question, “What kind of music do you like?” seems to be asked often inside of school, from beginning of the year introductions, to making new friends inside the classroom. For some, it’s a hard question to answer, but others know exactly what they love. Senior Jorge Hirsch explains he listens to, “rap, 6ix9ine, Kendrick Lamar, Trippie Redd, and 88rising.”

Many students here don’t listen to a specific genre, but instead have a wide variety of music they enjoy. Senior Jolissa Benson is one of those students. When asked what kinds of music she listens to, she replied with, “I listen to everything.”

It’s common for many people here have music help them through life. Benson explains the importance of music to her in saying that, “It helps me in certain situations… It describes how you feel for you. It helps me get through multiple situations.” Junior Juan Lopez felt similarly about music being helpful to him. Lopez says, “I don’t know where I’d be without music. I think life would be so much more boring without it. Hirsch feels the same way. He has felt like music has helped him a lot in his everyday life saying, “It’s helped me become outgoing, and it’s helped me express myself without using words. Instead, I use music to help my emotions come out.”

Music has become undeniably meaningful to people everywhere, and the teens at Buena are no exception. “It makes my days so much easier. I’m so happy listening to my favorite song. I think a lot of people feel the same way. Music just makes the day better. Nothing means more to me than music,” says Lopez. Music gives students the feeling of freedom as well, with Hirsch saying, “Music is freedom of the spirit, mind, and of the body.”

Music makes life easier, it helps students go through their day-to-day lives with a slight more ease, even when their minds are filled with stress and backpacks full of homework.
