Music is a science...

It is exact, specific, and it demands exact acoustics. A conductor's full score is a chart, a graph which indicates frequencies, intensities, volume changes, melody, and harmony all at once with the most exact control of time.

Music is mathematical...

It is rhythmically based on the subdivisions of time into fractions which must be done instantaneously, not worked out on paper.

Music is a foreign languages...

Most of the terms are in Italian, German or French and the notation is certainly not English, but a highly developed kind of shorthand that uses symbols to represent ideas. The semantics of music is the most complete and universal language.

Music is history...

Music usually reflects the environment and times of its creation, often even the country and or racial feeling.

Music is physical education...

It requires fantastic coordination of fingers hands, ares, lip, cheek, and facial muscles, in addition to extraordinary control of the diaphragm, back, stomach, and chest muscles, which respond instantly to the sound the ear hears and the mind interprets.

Music is all things but most of all, 
MUSIC IS ART...

It allows a human being to take all these techniques and use them to create emotion.
