No body in particular can be attributed as the inventor of MUSIC. Music was there since the beginning... in the form of chirping of the birds, water flowing down a waterfall, swaying of branches in breeze, baying of animals. Man learned about Music from nature.

Music has been around since before humans came into existence.
Music was never invented; Birds sing, water drips, leaves rustle, fire crackles, and so on. It might be better to ask, \"Who first realized that the world is so filled with music?\"
No one knows. Caveman used to make music.
Pope Gregory the First wrote music around 600 AD
Music wasn\'t \"invented\" only discovered. Everyone hums, taps, beats, etc. Early indians created music. Music goes as far back as human existence.
I don\'t believe one single person can be credited with \"inventing\" music. Music has existed since prehistoric times and predates the written word.
Music in terms of sound created by people for perposes of enjoyment has been around as long as people have. Music theory (noted music, and rules for forming it) didn\'t start showing up until later, though. The earliest evidence of notated music is from about 2000 BCE, and it was very simple. More developed forms showed up later.
