Importance of music to human beings
Music has always played an important role in liberal arts education. Musicologists seek to understand how human beings express themselves and live their lives through music. Music is connected to many other areas of life and art, and musicologists often take an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating aspects of other academic fields of study.
