Music and People From the ancient Egyptians to the Roman Empire, to the Renaissance, Kings, Queens, and Monarchies up till now, music has had it’s hand in dealings throughout the ages. It’s effect on people has been strong enough that it has remained preserved over time and integrated into practically every civilization and culture. For something typically looked upon as separate from the economy, government and politics of most nations, it has some how stuck around, but for what reason? Music is commonly defined as an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color. Now that’s an awful lot to take in for most people, especially non-musicians, so just focus on the emotion part. Music expresses emotion, and emotion has been around how long? Since the dawn of time. No one is sure who was first to make music, be it the early Egyptians, Indians, Romans, or Greeks, but one thing is for certain; the people of these societies have always had emotions, and at some point or another started creating music. It is written in the book of Samuel that, “Whenever the spirit from God came on Saul, David would take up his lyre and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.” This piece of evidence from the Bible clearly shows us how music can not only represent one’s emotions but can effect and change someones mood, or current emotions that they are experiencing. This is a powerful thing; what if David wasn’t there? What if, in a rage of ager and confusion, Saul declared war on one of the neighboring nations, or maybe even hurt his own people? Had music not been there, history could’ve been very different and many lives changed. Another example of where music is used as a tool is during the middle ages and times of monarchy. Though they were considered low-lives and naves, minstrels and jesters would often play music for the king and queen during times of celebration or when they were troubled. When these kings and queens past, many times a musical piece was composed and dedicated to these people in memory of them or as a declaration of there life; a way to live beyond death. And then we come to our modern society and wonder where music is? It’s virtually everywhere, and it’s still playing quite the important role. During 1988, President Ronald Reagan brought the Dave Brubeck quartet, one of the most influential jazz quartets of the century, with him to the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit. One would normally look at this and say that Brubeck was just there for entertainment, but it is commonly believed that he was sort of an ambassador; his music had
