Imagine the world without music - no concerts to attend, no singing or whistling, no tapes or CDs, no music in movies, no marching bands, no dancing, no hymns, and no organ at baseball games! Without music our world would certainly be a bleak place. Music is perhaps the most abstract and sublime of all the arts. It is capable of transmitting an unbelievable amount of information to us. Music is important to the quality of human life.
