what is music?
Music is obviously a thing that humans enjoy. It has no practical purpose and actually does nothing, but the human race enjoys it as something they do for fun or relaxation. Or to get themselves ready for whatever task comes next in their lives, be it work related or otherwise.
why do you think is music so important for humans?
The human species is unique among animals in that it has achieved a high level of abstraction through language. It is this ability to think about ourselves, and our lives and experiences, which makes us different from all other creatures on the planet.
Human language is paralleled by human music, which also serves as a vehicle for abstract concepts. Wonderfully, the two are closely related. Both music and language use rhythm to convey emotion, as well as pitch and tone. Both are used to communicate abstract concepts between members of the same species.
Some music, such as classical and opera, is more intellectual than other types of human music. It can be very beautiful to listen to. While animals have some ability to communicate with each other, they lack the complex language and musical abilities of humans. It is these abilities which enable us to think about ourselves in ways that no animal can.
Music can be a way to express emotions which are difficult to put into words. For example, a person who is angry or frustrated may feel better after playing an instrument.
why is music devalued?
There are many reasons why music is devalued. It doesn't have a purpose like other forms of art, such as painting or sculpture. They can be hung on walls or placed in parks where people can look at them for free. Music is an art form that can be enjoyed for free, but most people find it hard to use music as a way to make money.
