Whether it’s lullaby or dance music, humans identify it intuitively – even when the melody comes from a completely different cultural background. Our songs seem to sound similar and are evidence of a universal connection between the form and function of music. That is, music is subject to universal “understanding,” scholars believe.
Music is a language that everyone understands.
Music is deeply rooted in our history and nature, connected to human existence. There is hardly a culture anywhere that does not know music. Music is a part of every known civilisation, both ancient and modern, and it can be found in all human cultures around the world.
Music’s emotional impact, as well as the attitudes of its producers and performers, and the environments in which it is played, can shift through time and space.
Listening to music, singing, playing (informally or formally), and creating (exploring, composing, improvisation) are all common interests for the great majority of people.Music is a pleasurable pastime in and of itself, but its influence extends well beyond that.
These activities can provide a number of positive benefits to those who engage, in addition to allowing people to express their inner ideas and feelings. A growing body of empirical and experimental research on the broader benefits of musical activity is emerging, and research in music-related sciences suggests that successful musical engagement can positively affect many aspects of human life, including physical, social, educational, and psychological (cognitive and emotional) dimensions.

To enable audiophiles to enjoy perfect sound, engineers and designers went to great lengths during the development of the amplifier, player and headphones. Recently, smartphones have become very popular, and thanks to their multifunctionality, they are not only a means of communication, but also a device for listening to music. Despite this, there is still a wide range of audio players on the market.
They’re small digital music players that can play audio files like MP3s. Furthermore, the majority of these devices allow for the storage of video and pictures, as well as the reception of radio and television programs (podcasting). The typical output devices for delivering sound to the listener are earphones and external speakers.
A global survey conducted in 2019 shows that internet users used smartphones for listening to music less than 30% of their whole music listening time, while the majority of their time used for listening to music was on the radio. Surprisingly, listening to music on a Hi-Fi or turntable took up more time than listening to music on a smart speaker or Bluetooth speaker.
