What is Music?
Maestro, listen carefully.
What is music?
An evolving crescendo
Forte and strong or softly grazing,
A Flute whistling gently or drums beating
Guitar strumming or orchestras swelling
A lullaby or sweet lovesong
Strong rhythms rocking all over the world
Bars, beats, notes and chords playing harmoniously
In union or symphonic agenda
Staccato, crotchets, semiquavers and more
Arranged in keys transcending octaves across the staves
In an array of musical notation
Musical phrases from the heart
Etched by the fingers and composed by the soul
With meaning, essence and timeless notion
In time with being
Rendition of a song to be sung
In a tone that is tuneful to the players’ ear
For music is indeed an art combining sound
To produce beauty of form
Harmony and expressions of emotion
So what is Music?
It is the concert band in each of us
Given life when amplified to the world outside.
Maestro, listen carefully!
