The charm of community music
Abstract:Music education in communities is a newly sprouted thing and is gradually catching people's attention. Music education seeks to promote community members' aesthetic senses. Music and the arts, the best tools for moving people's souls, link different hearts across various boundaries, affecting all aspects of social life.

Starting with an explanation of community and community music in modern China, this article expounds the content, influence and functions of community music, with illustrations from a case study, to unveil the charm of community music.
