What is music?

Music is an art form whose medium is sound.

The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike), "(art) of the Muses".

With an increasingly diverse music scene, both in terms of acts and ways of consuming music, a knowledgeable, accessible digest of all the main stories and trends is invaluable. There are many paid for English language music magazines available, but an emerging trend is for free online resources, such as those provided by Rockol, for example.

This type of site acts as a hub and contains all the information a dedicated music fan could want. Not only are the breaking industry news headlines featured, but there is access to details on a range of other relevant topics, saving time and, potentially, money.

The successful online music magazines choose writers and bloggers with industry experience.
