What Is Music

What is music? According to Webster's II: New Riverside University Dictionary, music is 

"the art of arranging tones in an orderly sequence so as to produce a unified and continuous composition"

In reality, music does not have any one concrete meaning. Music has different meanings for different people. 
Music is unique in each person's life. To a musician, music is their life. They eat, breathe, and live music. Music is their passion.
For others, music is a hobby, a pastime. Music is something that arouses interest and is pleasurable. 
The casual fan may learn about music, how to read music, how to sing, or how to play a musical instrument, but they do not have the all encompassing passion a musician possesses. 

Music is a means of relaxation for some, while others simply enjoy listening to the sounds, melodies, and rhythms that music brings to their ears, minds, and hearts.
