About music

Music provides the soundtrack of our lives. It is heard everyday on radio and tv, chart music to backing music, adverts to theme songs. Sometimes we are unaware of the subtle influence music has, other times it is the focal point of our being. Crossing all cultures and genres music communicates to us the sense of feeling and time.
