Music - The Concept Defined
This article is a synthesis of ideas from different sources. Ideas are drawn from part of my research on multicultural music education and from various readings on music as a concept. In the article I make a very simple conceptual analysis of music the sound and music as a phenomena of social construction. Muse as a product of social construction is discussed in view of the role of the community in the development of a music tradition within a culture. Towards the end of the article I propose a comprehensive definition of music so as educators in Zimbabwe may develop a strong philosophical base for music education.
