How Does Your Faith Use Music? (Mostly For Non-Christians, But All Welcome!)

in the Christian faith music is a big part of worship. almost every Christian service i've been to sings songs, has a band play, and/or an organ/piano.

does your religion incorporate music into its practices? how?

  • I use music all the time. It's mine and my boys' favorite way to raise energy. We have our ceremony and before we close it we raise energy to feel our deities presence and to celebrate our creator and all creations. We have various songs and sometimes there are no words, just instruments and vocalizations.

  • It doesn't as far as I know. I don't exactly have any practices, services, etc. to incorporate music into. Though I do happen to play musical show tunes and country as loud as possible while cleaning.

  • We sing prayers, the cantor chants the torah portion which is basically singing. But as for instruments and rock bands, no.

  • My spiritual path is an eclectic mixture, so there isn't any particular music incorporated into it. But I do love music and find a lot of styles and songs to be spiritually uplifting.

  • We don't require music. I tried to find a video of a blot on YT, but they all have music dubbed in that has nothing to do with the ceremony - go figure. I will sometimes have it on in the background, actually need to get my butt in gear and get that done before bed tonight...

  • Well, not music, really, but we chant sometimes.

  • drums, mostly

    Buddhists have chanting services... the drum is used to mark the end of one sutra & the beginning of another.

  • My path doesnt have a building to go to so if music is used its to center me while meditating or just because I want to listen to something pretty and calming.

    I wouldnt say its a must but I think it definately gives something to a person when they it comfort, peace, joy, or just something to take their mind off something else.

    I love music...its good for my soul.
