Music is an expression of a feeling, idea, a person, a place, a thing etc. using words and tunes pleasant to the ear. Basically, the kind of music an individual composes can help you define him/her likewise, the kind of music an individual listens to can give a complete definition of him/her. Music is used to impact knowledge, you can only teach what you know, you can only sing what you know.

It burdens me a lot the way music has been abused in our society. Some musicians simply sing to a beat, a few talented musicians sing for the soul, their songs express a message. Music is a spiritual exercise. It is a major part of religious settings. I have never heard of a religion that doesn't approve music. Music truly is a broad word. It has many more definitions but here is a fact "music without a message and value isn't worth music, what makes music is the expression and orientation given to the soul of the listener." Music is different from noise! Many musicians are noise makers who think they are musicians. I wish Nigerian noise makers will realise themselves and turn a new leaf.
