About Music in brief
Music is an art form, and a cultural activity, whose medium is sound. Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music ranges from strictly organized compositions through to spontaneously played improvisational music such as jazz. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work, or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show. People may make music as a hobby, like a teen playing cello in a youth orchestra, or work as a professional musician or singer. The music industry includes the individuals who create new songs and musical pieces, individuals who perform music, individuals who record music, and individuals who organize concert tours. Music is composed for many purposes, ranging from aesthetic pleasure, religious or ceremonial purposes, or as entertainment for the marketplace. In many cultures, music is an important part of people’s way of life, as it plays a key role in religious rituals, rite of passage ceremonies, social activities and cultural activities ranging from amateur karaoke singing to playing in an amateur funk band or singing in a community choir. The word,’music’ is derived from Greek mousa, which means ‘to entertain’ or ‘to amuse’ In Greek mythology, the nine Muses were the goddesses who inspired literature, science, and the arts and who were the source of the knowledge embodied in the poetry, song-lyrics, and myths in the Greek culture.
In classical music, especially music and lyric poetry, the Muses presided, but music and poetry is composed and composed for aesthetic pleasure and for ceremonial purposes. The term’musik’ comes from the Greek mousa (mousos) or’mousik’, which means “to entertain” or “to amuse” The word’musical’ is also used to refer to any piece of music that is performed or recorded, such as a piece of classical music or film music.

For more information, see the Online Etymological Dictionary and the Online Music Etymology Dictionary. Music can be divided into genres and genres can be further divided into subgenres, although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal, for example, early jazz, and avant-garde styles of chance-based contemporary music from the 20th and 21st centuries. According to the Online music dictionary, the term ‘musik’ means ‘the art of music’ and ‘music’ is a form of art.
