What is Music?
Music is a form of art where the medium is sound and silence. The common elements of music are pitch (which means having a melody and harmony), rhythm (and it's associated concepts of tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture. The creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of music can vary according to culture and social context. Music ranges from strictly organized compositions and their recreation in performance to purely improvisational music and even to emotional forms of music. Music can be divided into different genres and subgenres, although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle. Music is also sometimes open to personal interpretation and can occasionally be controversial. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art, and auditory art. It may also be divided among art music and folk music. There is also a strong connection between music and mathematics. Music may be played, heard live, may be part of a dramatic work or film, or may be recorded.
Too many people in many cultures, music is an important part of their way of life. Music has played a role in many different time periods throughout history, such as during the prehistoric eras and the middle ages. Music can also be seen as a type of therapy. Music therapy is an interpersonal process in which a therapist uses music and all of its facets-physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual—to help clients to improve or maintain their health. In some instances, the client's needs are addressed directly through music. Music therapy is used with individuals of all ages suffer from a variety of conditions including psychiatric disorders, medical problems, physical handicaps, sensory impairments, developmental disabilities, substance abuse, communication disorders, interpersonal problems, and aging. It is also used to improve learning, builds self-esteem, reduces stress, and supports the physical exercise.

The Meaning of Christian Music
Christian music is music that has been written to express either personal or a communal belief regarding Christian life and faith. Common themes of Christian music include praise, worship, repentance, and lament. Christian music is available in different forms that vary across the world. The creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of Christian music varies according to culture and social context. Christian music is composed and performed for many purposes, ranging from aesthetic pleasure, religious or ceremonial purposes, or as an entertainment product for the marketplace. Christian music is different than other music genres because of the fact that it is about a higher being and contains positive messages. Christian music is not about violence, drugs, and sex. There is a deeper meaning to this type of music because Christian music is uplifting and positive for everyone for listening, even children as this music is also more family-based. This type of music is written and produced to express personal faith, hope, and love regarding Christian life and beliefs, however, this type of music can also be applied to everyday life. The more modern type of Christian music is called contemporary Christian, which means music relevant to the present day. Christian music contains the answers and healing powers that our souls need when we feel lost and confused.
