What is music? By the kurd Lorin Atroushi

Music is any kind of harmony that people enjoy listening to.
It doesn't have to involve guitars, drums, or voices.
What sounds better than the water streaming down from a beautiful waterfall in the middle of a dark dense forest?
Music liked most is repeated with rhymes and smoothly flows repeating the same message, over and over.
It is somewhat forced what kind of music you like. Attempt this, if you don't believe me.
Buy a decent CD in the store of music that you have never heard.
Listen to it about ten times through, and you will probably start to enjoy the beats and harmony produced.
You just have to give some music a chance to find your ear.
Sure, some people are prone to some kinds of music, but what I'm saying is that every kind of music can be found enjoyable.
And the music you like is really only based off what music is played in your environment and accepted in your mind.

Music is science
It is exact, specific; and it demands exact acoustics.
A Conductor's full score is a chart, a graph which indicates frequencies, intensities, volume changes, melody, and harmony all at once and with the most exact control of time.

Music is mathematical
It is rhythmically based on the subdivisions of time into fractions which must be done, not worked out on paper.
In addition, as well single tones as musical scales contain frequencies with mathematical relations.

Music is a foreign language
The terms are in one of any language ; and the notation is certainly not English but a highly developed kind of shorthand that uses symbols to represent ideas.
The semantics of music is the most complete and universal language.

Music is history
Music usually reflects the environment and times of its creations, often even the country and/ or racial feeling.

Music is physical exercise
It requires fantastic coordination of finger, hands, arms, lip, cheek, and facial muscles, in addition to extraordinary control of the diaphragmatic, back, stomach, and chest muscles, which respond instantly to the sound the ear hears and the mind interprets.

Music is all of these things, but most of all:
Music is art
It allows a human being to take all these dry, technically boring (but difficult) techniques and use them to create emotions.
That is one thing science cannot duplicate: humanism, feeling,  emotion, call it what you will.
