A History of Music

Hillary Cyril




Music is the art of composing sounds in varying time intervals to create a melody or piece of music through the coordination of rhythm, melody, harmony, and other musical factors. It is one of the most universal artistic aspects of all human cultures. From the earliest forms of music, such as those found in the Ache, by Native Americans, to classical forms, such as those found in Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Elton John, and many others, music has played a significant role in almost every society that has ever existed. Music is even more important in our modern-day society, as most of us are more aware of its influence on our culture than ever before. In this article, we’ll take a brief look at some of the basic characteristics of music and why it’s important to our existence.

Music has a tendency to change source and effect over time. While most forms of classical music, such as the piano, violin, or orchestra, generally only have a single source of sound from which they draw their sounds, popular music, such as that which you hear on the radio, has a wide range of possible sources from which it can draw sounds. For example, the notes that are played on the piano may come from percussion instruments such as cymbals, drums, or maracas, from stringed instruments, such as the guitar, the mandolin, the violin, and even from various electronic devices. Musical effects may even come from a change in musical tempo, pitch, or rhythm, which can be dramatic in nature and incredibly moving for the audience.

A musical instrument can be made from a variety of materials. The most common type of musical instrument is a simple wind instrument. However, there are many different types of wind instruments that have been discovered over the years. Some of these instruments are quite complex, containing hundreds of tiny tubes, ropes, and feathers that have to be tied together in such a way that they form an intricate and very complex structure. Others are made from bones, shells from sea animals, ivory, wood, stone, plastic, paper, and many other objects. The oldest known musical instrument is the flute, which was found in the tomb of a pharaoh about 2.5 billion years ago.


Many people are interested in listening to concerts of musicians from long ago and they enjoy the energetic yet relaxing tones coming from the brass and woodwind sections. Many classical musicians create such powerful sounds that they inspire people to dance to their music and many people today dance to live concert music. There are also non-musical instruments that can create a wide variety of sounds like bird songs, nature sounds, and other types of music that can be just as enchanting to the listeners as the more traditional forms. These include, but are not limited to, claves, tabla, recorder, fiddles, tambourines, congas, agues, and other types of wind chimes. All of these can be used at live concerts to create a variety of musical effects that can inspire relaxation and bring a person closer to the spirit of one another.

Many people have written music with the intention of using it to express themselves, but some composers like Alexander Borodin and Levinson Brothers did so for artistic reasons. They were motivated by the works of composers like Johann Sebastian Bach and started to play and write their own music based on what they heard. Other composers like Thomas Moran wrote music to get people to pay attention to them and create a reaction to what they were writing. Later on, Thomas Moran died and was buried with a copy of his most popular work, “unity”. This remains an inspiration for countless musicians today.

Most of the classical composer’s composed works that were meant to be performed and heard in public but some wrote music in a private home or studio. This can be seen in the work of composers like Alexander Borodin, Philip Glass, and John Coltrane. Each of these artists used a different instrument to create some of their best pieces. It is because of this fact that any of the above-mentioned players who have not written too many scores would probably be considered as “masters” within their respective instrument categories. This is due to the fact that each of them took time out from their careers to develop their craft and master their instrument so that they could bring it to the next level and contribute something new to the world.
