ABSTRACT

The Universe created a magical spell which not only held the ability to heal and enhance the health of the mankind but also add most pleasant rhythm to it. This unique creation of universe was termed as “Music”. 

Music has been observed to hold immense importance in lives of human being from the time of its inception. It turned out to be a blessing in the attire of a magnificent form of an art. Music held ground in man’s life in various ways, such as for its ability to heal, entertain, means of communication, expression of emotions etc. It has been found to add significant changes in the way a society works. In early times music was used as a means of communication, people would play drums or any other instruments to collect or gather crowd with the purpose of conveying any message. During events and festivals it was regarded to be a pious act to play musical instruments, not only from the point of view of entertainment but also it was based on the belief that music purifies the vibration in any particular environment. Even it has been used to symbolize various emotions during early ages.
