Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies .Generally music means the acquired speech to rhythm, and its associated concepts of the tempo, meter or measure, and articulation, dynamics which means loudness and softness, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture which are sometimes termed the “color” of a musical sound. Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; “(art) of the Muses”); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.
