Classicalmusic is known to promote, as well as contribute a lot to the natureof travel and tourism. This shows how crucial music is to humanbeings .Music is simply is subject which is performed through sound.It has really promoted tourism because it is almost everywhere. Fromthe ancient days of the Greek and Indian philosophers, music hasreally played a very important part of man.
Musicand tourism are almost inseparable. Tourism simply refers totravelling for leisure, business or recreational purposes. From thispoint of view it is clear that tourism and travelling go hand inhand. At this position, the leisure involves listening to music. Onecannot talk of tourism without travel, and also cannot talk of travelwithout tourism (Singh, p.281, 2008). Tourists usually travel andstay away from their normal areas or rather environment for some timewith an aim of getting involved in business, leisure or otherpurposes. Whenever tourists are, there is usually some music around.Classical music is dated around 1750-1830 AD (Beaver, p.339, 2002).
Themusic played is big hotels, and places where tourists go is sweet tothe ears, so people listen, and enjoy. Those tourists who travel forleisure tend to target the wildlife and also other natural sites. Thetourists who travel for business tend to target conferences .Thetourists normally help in uplifting the economies of those countriesthey visit. Apart from that tourism tend to make the world to be moreinteractive and a better place for everyone (Singh, p.42, 2008).
Tourismis known to be the world’s largest industry, where a lot of moneyis made .As tourism makes money, it contributes a lot to classicalmusic, .It is a very crucial area. Many countries around the worldspend a lot of money, billions and billions of dollars in tourism, aswell as classical music in order to ensure that they continue toexist. As a major player in economies of many countries, tourismprovides employment especially in the service industry in areasinvolving transportation, accommodation and entertainment. Manypeople do get employment because of tourism .It is such a crucialarea of human beings .Without tourism, many people may suffer, and sois with music. The current lifestyle demands that tourism mustcontinue, and be supported always (Beaver, p.317, 2002)..
Tourismknows no borders, and so is classical music. It involves even thelocals in what is called local tourism. So apart from tourists comingfrom other parts of the world, the local tourists also find time totour their own native country. These locals also find time to tourother countries, and in the process tourists from other countriesalso tend to find time to tour other countries as well, apart fromthe country of their own. This is just in a broad way how tourismoperates. Tourism simply encourages interaction among human beings.Many people manage to step where they have never been before justbecause of tourism. A lot of foreign exchange goes on due to thistourism. It is such a very important aspect of our everyday lives,such that we cannot do without (Singh, p.109, 2008).
Countrieslike the United States, Russia, Germany, China and Brazil are knownto spend heavily on tourism and music .The instruments used in musicare costly ,but people still spend, and enjoy. This is just anindication that tourism is not an area that can easily come to an end(Beaver, p.345, 2002).In addition, even some modified or ratherartificial areas tend also to attract tourists a lot. Tourists can goto any length to ensure that they are comfortable where they visit.In this sense, a lot of money is therefore spent just to ensure thattourism remains what it is, or even better. Music in turn owes a lotto the ancient Egypt in its richness and beauty, especially classicalmusic (Singh. 55, 2008).
Touristsspend as much money as possible just to achieve their intendedtargets. A lot of money, in the process goes to the music industry.So they give a better reason for tourism to thrive and continue. Thisconfirms the better level of tourism (Beaver, p.320, 2002),.
