Music
Music is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time. The common elements of music are pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "art of the Muses"). See glossary of musical terminology.
Performing Arts
Performing arts are a form of art in which artists use their voices or bodies, often in relation to other objects, to convey artistic expression. It is different from visual arts, which is when artists use paint, canvas or various materials to create physical or static art objects. Performing arts include several disciplines, each performed in front of a live audience.
Music
Let music sound while he doth make his choice;
Then, if he lose, he makes a swan-like end,
Fading in music.
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice (late 1590s), Act III, scene 2, line 43.
Music
One whom the music of his own vain tongue
Doth ravish like enchanting harmony.
William Shakespeare, Love's Labour's Lost (c. 1595-6), Act I, scene 1, line 167.

Ere music's golden tongue
Flattered to tears this aged man and poor.
