Definition of Music
We all know that music is defined an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color. It is also the science or art of ordering tones or sounds in succession, in combination, and in temporal relationships to produce a composition having unity and continuity for the other people. For me it is simple as arranging sounds together to form a new one.
My conclusion is that, music is an art form whose medium is sound organized in time.
