It is a general truth that there is a large range of types of music in the world today. From religious music to hard rock, every type of music plays an important role in people's life. People need music because music helps them express, it entertains and is important for development and culture.
Music is an art that helps people express themselves. Music is called the universal language that unite people around the world. Music can express a wide range of feelings and emotions from peace and harmony to anger and chaos. Therefore, music is very different. For example classical music is very different and we could say that it express opposite feelings than metal rock.
Music helps people entertaining and you can hear it everywhere on TV, radio, pubs, clubs and even workplaces. Music helps people relaxing and forget about the quotidian problems. Moreover, there are people claiming to better concentrate at work and study when hearing music.
Music plays a very important role in both, the individual development and the development of a group's culture. Children learn music at school as a subject and they also listen to music at home. All cultures have traditional songs and anthems. For example the national anthems are official songs which represent countries and they are played on public occasions.
I think that various genders of music cannot be compared because they are very different and express different things. The traditional music of a country is very important for its people and it should be preserved as the International music has its importance.
