Music is an art form that can be instrumental, vocal or a combination of the two. There are numerous elements, styles, and instruments involved in the making of music, along with a long list of genres. Music is created by writing musical notes on paper, called sheet music.

Music lyrics are the words of a song that are paired with the notes to produce the tune. Music can be heard live or in electronic form via compact discs, vinyl records, cassette tapes or, most recently, from music off the internet, some of which is free music downloads. These computer files are known as mp3 files, an audio encoding format. Music downloads have led to a decrease in sales at music stores. In the 1980s, music videos became popular due to the launch of the Music Television (MTV) cable channel. A music video is a short film that accompanies a piece of music. « Show less

  • Blockbusters from the BSO

    There's a lot you can do on Valentine's Day. There's the classic romantic dinner, the chocolate candy, the flowers. There's crying as you watch "Love Actually" home alone (we've just heard about this one). How about a live serenade? The Valentonez are...

  • Public engagement and education excellence
