Music is a pleasing, rhythmic sound created using musical instruments and/or human voices. Music has many purposes. Music can inspire people to laugh, to dance, to join in, to act, to relax, to mourn, or to praise God. Music appears to be as old as civilisation itself, and every human culture everywhere in the world has some kind of music to use in celebrations and other occasions.
Animals other than humans do not make music, although some animal calls such as birdsong can sound pleasantly musical to the human ear.
