Facts About Music

Music is a complex art form that involves a skilful musician putting sound and rhythm together to create a coordinated or unified composition. It is often used to express emotions, ideas and experiences.


In modern times, the ability to produce music has increased dramatically with new technologies such as the gramophone and tape recorders. Music can also be created with computers, digital recording devices and smartphones.

Facts about Music

The history of music can be traced back thousands of years to prehistoric human cultures and archaeologists have found earliest prototypes of musical instruments, such as the drum and flute, in prehistoric rock art. In many parts of the world, music is a central part of religious ceremonies and is also associated with the cultural identities of local communities.

Artists, genres and festivals

In many countries, musicians compete in music competitions for trophies and scholarships. These competitions are a great way for young musicians to perform in public and get a taste of performing at a professional level.

A musical festival is a social event in which musicians of various genres perform at a venue or outdoor area. These festivals are usually friendly and supportive, and offer a platform for musicians to share in the excitement of making music.

People who listen to music are more likely to have better memories, a stronger immune system, and less depression. Similarly, listening to music during work outs measurably improves physical performance.
