H And 21st Century Music
After the 18th century, speculations upon the intrinsic nature of music became more numerous and profound. But philosophers whose views have been summarized thus far were not speaking as philosophers of music. The only common denominator to be found, aside from the recognition of different types of music, is the acknowledgment of its connection with the emotional life, and here, to be sure, is that problematic power of the art to move.
Musical notation was used since Ancient times in Greek culture, but in the Middle Ages, notation was first introduced by the Catholic church so that the chant melodies could be written down, to facilitate the use of the same melodies for religious music across the entire Catholic empire. In classical music, the composer typically orchestrates his or her own compositions, but in musical theatre and in pop music, songwriters may hire an arranger to do the orchestration.
However, as it gets performed, the interpretation of a song or piece can evolve and change. In popular and traditional music, the performers have a lot more freedom to make changes to the form of a song or piece.
Composers and songwriters who present their own music are interpreting their songs, just as much as those who perform the music of others.

The sound of rock often revolves around the electric guitar or acoustic guitar, and it uses a strong back beat laid down by a rhythm section. Harmony refers to the “vertical” sounds of pitches in music, which means pitches that are played or sung together at the same time to create a chord. Music is an art form, and a cultural activity, whose medium is sound.
Classical music from the Romantic era (written from about 1820–1900) often contains multiple keys, as does jazz, especially Bebop jazz from the 1940s, in which the key or “home note” of a song may change every four bars or even every two bars. Even when music is notated relatively precisely, as in classical music, there are many decisions that a performer has to make, because notation does not specify all of the elements of music precisely. In many cultures, including Western classical music, the act of composing also includes the creation of music notation, such as a sheet music “score”, which is then performed by the composer or by other singers or musicians.
