Music is loved by kids and adults alike to please our ears in USA or in China.
Human voices are meant to express fear or joy even birds could chirp to make music.
A rhythm is a pattern. Folks made clapping sounds with hands or pieces of stone may be used to scrape rhythms on shells. Drums were used for fighting in China or American Indians would do the same to fight invaders.
China language is a form of music with four tones. Chinese calligraphy is a form of art especially the cursive writing as a part of simplified Chinese characters.
The joke about nervous violins may be high-strung! When monkeys play in the orchestra,it would be a chimphony. Phooey or fake symphony indeed.
March 8th is the Festival for women in China but the entire month of March is Women's history in USA.
