What Is Music?
Music is an art form in which a skilful musician puts sound and rhythm together to create a coordinated or unified composition.
Production: The process of making music involves a number of steps including selecting and choosing the instruments, learning the proper technique, recording and playing a song or instrumental piece. It also includes arranging the songs, orchestrating them and editing them.
Music has a long history and it will continue to affect the world for many years to come. It has been used as a language of communication, self-expression and social bonding.
The science behind it:
It is well known that music stimulates different emotions and releases dopamine to evoke positive feelings. Moreover, listening to sad music can make someone happier as it increases the production of serotonin, the brain’s mood hormone.
Musicians are a talented group of people. They have the ability to bring out the best in each individual. They can perform songs of any genre and style.
Musical genres include rock, pop, jazz, classical, folk, blues, country, etc. These vary according to the region in which they are performed, the time period in which they were created, and the social influences that have made them popular.
There are numerous festivals around the world where musicians can meet and share their talents with other like-minded people. These festivals help them learn new things and encourage them to continue with their passion for music.
