Music and Dance are the two sides of the same coin of creativity. Music manifests the inner feeling and emotion, while dance reflects upon a person’s ability to demonstrate his emotions to the tune of music with various moves and grooves.
“Music can be enjoyed without dance, but it’s impossible to enjoy dance without music.”
Piano, Guitar, Flute and Violin are some of the prominent musical instruments.
In instrumental music, there is always a heavy use of musical instruments. The element of creativity comes with the way each tune is composed of. It depends upon a musician’s discretion on whether to opt for traditional music or the hip-hop ones.
