Hard topic for me.....
Music indeed plays a vital role in human culture. You can hardly find a area without any music, and without any local featured music. Why music is so important to our life? I think there two main reasons: first, music is a unique and irreplaceable art form; second, it conveys and express beautiful emotions of people, and record some legend and preserve local culture.
Music is an art form of sound, which is composed by rhythm, melody and many special sound effects. All these features make music very unique and irreplaceable. Unlike the paints, music cannot exist in space. At some moment, music starts and gives you joy, and by some moment, it fades. It just like life, it will only exist in a limited time. If I portray music as a dancer, then rhythm is her soul and the melody is her dance. When the music plays, we can see a picture that the dancer is following the rhythm to perform her dance. It constructs a atmosphere of mood that no other art form can do.
Like all other art form, music is to express, to convey and to record. Through the Mozart's beautiful melody, we can see an angel smiling with tears. Beethoven's music is very inspiring and exciting, and it gives a great impact to our hearts. Some religion music will make us feel very peaceful and enlighten life. Folk music is generally joy, some of them record funny stories while some documented the legend of ancient hero. The expression and record of music are so special, and no other art forms can replace.
From the above I have discuss, music is an important art form to human, because no other art can take place of music. Because music has unique and living nature, it has a special expression of our emotions and documentation of our culture.
