Music is everywhere around us. We can listen to music from the radio channels, on TV, on the Internet, from CD players, MP3 players, etc.

Listening to music is a way of relaxation, and very often we turn on the radio just not to be lonely. It sometimes serves only as a background noise. It can help people to concentrate, relax or just have fun.

Many young people choose to play a musical instrument. The most popular instruments are the piano, guitar, drums and the keyboard. These people often set up a band to play music together.

Singing is also very common nowadays, due to the talent shows on TV as American Idol, X factor, Superstar.
