“Music is the universal language.” - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Music has come a long way, and artists from different cultures and with unique experiences have created much more music over the years. Music has evolved. According to The Method Behind the Music, “the earliest forms of music drum-based, percussion instruments being the most readily available at the time. Between 4000 BCE and 3500 BCE, the Egyptians had created harps, flutes, lyres, and clarinets. By 700 BCE, there are records of songs that include vocals and instrumentals.”
We could never deny the impact and importance of music in our daily lives. Many other research centers, scientists, and universities have done studies about how music can affect our brain. According to one Johns Hopkins specialist, “listening to or playing music is a great tool. It provides a total brain workout.”
Here is the timeline of the evolution of music:
