Music is the art of organizing sounds at the right time through melody, harmony, rhythm, and characteristics of the specific sound of instruments. If this is to be understood by ordinary people in general, the sound in the ears is a force that penetrates the heart through our pulses and veins and causes the subconscious mind to meditate. How has such music been used in devotion, how has it been used, how is it used, and what are the changes that have taken place due to them, even though it can be seen in many dimensions? What is the role of music in all non-religious communities? In particular, this article will be a study of the role of music in the Saiva and Christian communities and the benefits of the community.
