Music is the creative art of arranging sounds in particular time to create a particular composition usually through the interplay of melody, beat, harmony, and rhythm. It is also one of the universal artistic aspects of all human cultures. Music composers use musical notation in which the clefs (the flat lines on a piano) are musical notes, i.e., they indicate which key or note is to be played at a specific point of the composition. This technique is used to help both the composer and the listener to associate the music with specific pitches and keys. This helps the composer to arrange the music so that key and pitch coincide with the desired result.
Music dates back to the earliest times of human history when people used simple sounds of voice to make music. Over time, with the evolution of musical instrument, musical instruments were developed to provide a richer and more complex musical score. Most modern music today is created using keyboards and computer-generated sounds that are generated by mathematical algorithms and mathematical sounds using sampled data. Some of today’s most popular and well-known musical instrument brands are Yamaha, Apple, IBM, Casio, Kanekalon, Moog, Native Instruments, Pro Circuit, Solid Music, Nuendo, Ektobion, Jupiter, Enson, Cubase, Sonar, Samba, Virus, MPC, Pro Tools, Promotion, Fruity Loops, Digital Performer, Logic, Pro avalanche, etc.
Music has proven to be an integral part of human culture for thousands of years and continues to influence the culture, values, beliefs, emotions, and lifestyle of countless individuals from all walks of life. For example, gospel music and blues music are integral components of the Black American heritage. Hip hop and rap music, as well as classical forms such as classical, influence of modern day African-American and Latino cultures. Today, musical instruments, such as digital pianos, digital keyboards, digital drum machines, audio interfaces, samplers, and other electronic devices, can often be found in any corner of a room or in the offices of music composition and recording artists.
