Abstract

Since early times, people have been influenced by music of a variety of genres and styles, with its effects reaching across all ages, races and nationalities. Music today exists in a myriad of styles, including classical, jazz, indigenous, popular and others, and it continues to have a profound effect on human existence. Part of the cultural life of a nation is defined and shaped by its musical heritage, be it in the preservation of its traditional musical culture, the creation of new individual styles, or the eclectic development of alternative and new music. In the twenty-first century, all forms of media are saturated with music, the boundaries between traditional musical 'styles' continue to be eroded, and its influence continues to percolate. Music infiltrates homes, shopping centers, public transport, social activities and, indeed, is rarely absent from people's lives. In the western world in particular, the majority of people have access to or experience of learning a musical instrument, in either one or often many styles. Many study an instrument at school, whilst others take on the challenge of musical training later in life. Music has a prominent place in the world's cultures and the artistic output and education of its people.
