Why music is important.

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Why Music IS So Important 40,000 years old flutes made from mammoth ivory are amongst the oldest man-made objects ever discovered. Compare this with reading and writing, the earliest forms of writing are no more than about 3500 years old. Music is a fundamental part of what makes us human. Every culture makes music and will ALWAYS continue to make music.

  1. Orginal Writing - Music Album Review

    "Its formulaic, sure, but as an attention-grabbing opening it ranks amongst their best" The lexis I have used is fairly complicated and more formal in parts of the article such as, "anthology", "eclecticism" and "formulaic" but I used some simpler, traditional lexis such as "Shows off", "Dark" and "album".
