it's the art of creating something of from the heart translated in you playing a tune on a musical instrument.

that good??

just bull**** it (it makes teacher happy)
Some dude once said music is what feelings sound like. I pretty much agree with that. If music was just noise, then the sound of 50,000 toenails scraping on a chalkboard for 3 minutes would be a song I definitely don't want to hear (unless I feel like torturing myself that day).

One of my favorite bits of music philosophy is this theory by Pythagoras (of Pythagorean tuning):

Pythagoras believed in something called the harmony of the spheres. He believed that the planets and stars moved according to mathematical equations, which corresponded to musical notes and thus produced a symphony.

Basically, music is any arrangement of notes. Provided, some arrangements sound much much better than others. Nonetheless, if it has notes, it's technically music.
My definition: the realization of autonomy through the use of sonic energy.

'tis life
Music is pretty awesome, if you ask me.
