Music is a combination of different sounds that have been organised to construct a melody with harmony and rhythm. These combinations of sounds often include periods of silence. Melody is the voice of the music and it is usually the most obvious part of the music piece. Harmony supports the melody. Rhythm is the beat of the music. The rhythm sets the pace of the music. One of the most famous music composers in history was deaf, yet he was still able to compose music. His name was Ludwig Van Beethoveen.
