Music is a combination of sounds with distinct pitches and a specific pattern. The pitches and unique pattern in a piece of music make a recognizable form known as a song.
Pitch refers to the highness or lowness of a note. Melody and harmony are elements of music that are related to pitch. Meter is an element of music that relates to pattern. Each musical piece is made up of beats that give the song its rhythm. Meter groups those beats into a rhythmic pattern made up of a combination of strong and weak beats as well as rests, or pauses in the sound. Dynamics are another part of a song's pattern. Dynamics are the pattern of loudness and softness of the different phrases in a song.
