On World Music in Contemporary Life there is a clickable mind map that sets out the elements of music beautifully.

“Music is the aural evidence of organized sound. Listeners experience an aesthetic response to these arrangements.” Below are some suggestions about what the elements of music might be.

In the meantime, draw your own mind map representing the elements of one of the other strands of the Creative Arts.
