    German sociologist Weber believes that music is an important element of social composition, and it has a subtle effect on the evolution of human history and culture. In every country and every culture, there is music as an artistic form of expression. It is a wonderful way for people to express their feelings and entrust their feelings. Psychologists believe that the height, intensity, density, lightness and darkness of the notes are related to people's heartbeat and pulse, emotional ups and downs from time to time, and especially affect people's psychology beyond words. Beethoven believes: "Music is an art that can lead humans to a higher level. She understands humans, but humans cannot understand her." He believes that music can have a strong emotional and physiological impact on humans: "Music can Strike the inner spark, she can make people cry. "For decades, researchers from different disciplines have explored music from different angles. System music theorists have studied physics, biology, psychology, culture and society.
