Music is an art defined by the elements pitch and rhythm, which lend themselves to immense range. Music has developed concurrently across the world and the definition and significance of music varies by culture. Some cultures consider music a high art and revere developed musicians. Others may focus on the utility of music, for example, in hunting, as political expression, or for a religious ritual. It is this rich variation that has given rise to concentrated fields of study like Music Ethnography and the Sociology of Music.
