In phase of history, we can say that the people always ask about what  a meaning of art form. The philosophers, since Greece age until now has provided various definition of what is an art,  in this time we try to explain one of many definition that we can take.

Van Hoeve in Encyclopedia page 3080 and 3081 explain about the definition of arts, an arts it's a beautiful sense in a human soul to communicate what their feelings that can be catch by sense of hearing (sing), vision (painting), and motion (dancing or drama)

Music is a form of arts which related with instruments and rhythm. This arts form can't be seperated with a methods how to create some note. Besides that, music arts divided into a two kind such as vocals music (singing) and instrumentalia.

Music can be combined between an arts of instrumentalia and vocal musics (read:singing). Instrumentalia is sound arts that can be played with instruments, but the vocals music is an toning the rhyme only with voice/vocals without music instruments.
