Music is an art form where medium is sound. Its a demonstration how a sound can be pleasing to the ears when orchestrated in rhythm. Music is defined by common elements such as pitch (which controls the melody and harmony), rhythm (associated with tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities.
Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques. It ranges from singing to rapping; from playing instruments to recitation; from writing a song to performing in a theatre.
Ancient Greek and Indian philosophers defined music in two parts: melodies, as tones ordered horizontally, and harmonies as tones ordered vertically. Music is considered ordered and pleasant to listen to. Thus originated the common sayings such as "the harmony of the spheres" and "it is music to my ears".
"Composition" is an act or passion of creating any rhythm or tone such as song, poem, an instrumental music piece, or a combination of both singing and instruments, or another type of music. It is then performed by the composer or by other singers or musicians.
