Western Music, the music of Europe and of areas of the world settled by Europeans. Western music is one of several separate, highly developed musical cultures, each of which has its own specific theoretical base that encompasses, among other things, its own system of tunings and scales, its preferred timbres (tone colors), its particular approach to musical form, and its characteristic musical textures. As such, Western music stands alongside other major musical systems, notably those of India, Indonesia, Islamic culture, China, and Japan.
