In this article, you’ll see a sample IELTS Task 2 body paragraph about music.

Music is a topic that comes up often in IELTS Speaking, and it is possible you will see it as a Task 2 topic as well.

In some cultures, music is not experienced as much as it is in others, making brainstorming difficult.

Or, you just may not be a music person, also making it challenging to respond.

Remember to experience English through as many different topics as possible, especially in areas that you aren’t familiar with.

Here is the second paragraph of my essay answering this question:

As to the primary importance of music, I feel it is helps individuals access their feelings and emotions in ways that they would be unable to otherwise. Take instrumental music, for instance. There is a reason why this genre is often used as a soundtrack for key scenes in movies, namely that the emotion which is added by the instrumentation goes beyond what the actors are doing, and the audience feels more deeply with the music attached. The most famous scene of the movie Philadelphia serves as an illustration, in which Tom Hanks is not saying a word, merely holding out his arms and crying, but the music of the scene causes viewers to cry uncontrollably as well.
