Music system   

It’s about music and how is it a system  💜

What is music…….

Music is a different system. Like a wave through our ears. Well it’s noise that can make you happy or sad or angry or dizzy. Let’s go to the point so music is a kind of noise. That is made out of singing body parts machines and instruments and more. So one of our body parts that help us hear is our nose. No no no no just kidding. Our ears. So some music can be human made machine made or natural. So means a lot for one song past the electricity to make music in the present time.

How to make music…….
So u make music by going to the studio. And putting in noises. Then record you singing or making EDM music So basically there different ways to make music. Such as guitar music piano music EDM music and more. So properly all the thing I say is properly everything I know. But music is not just a noise. It take a lot to make one song. Because electricity is a music’s friend. So we need lots of power to a song. But energy sometimes is made out of bad things.

These questions have been both teacher and learner-generated, and have helped us gain a deeper understanding of our central idea, lines of inquiry, and our key concepts.
