    The ideas conveyed through notes are actually musical theories. Deep, no?

    i'm a put it like this:
    i have found that -tone and scale always set a mood(happy/ sad) -tempo suggests the intensity of the story being told.
    -pitch changes mark signifigant events in a story

    you have to remember, the composer of the music is the one trying to tell a story here, wether or not you understand the message is unimportant, you job is to simply hear it, not nessecarily understand it.<-tell that to your teacher

    When refering to music, phrases signify the end of a musical idea and are ususally marked but a cadence. An idea with music usually signifies some kind of motive, a musical technique that the composer may be using to express something about the music.

    master bates is on point. often, when they refer to a musical idea or phrase, they don't mean it in the context it is usually understood to be in. it's just a cluster of a basis of notes.

    i'm not a musician.. but doesn't the "feeling" of music have everything to do with the key that it is played in?

    i might be wrong.

    Your root note/key is your thesis. Notes are the letters needed to make up the words required to effectively convey your proposed idea. Notes when joined form chords, which are in effect your words. The progression of your chords sets your theme the same way one would sequence words to give an idea a consistant feel.

    Meter serves as the conjunction for these words and allows them to be conveyed... conjunctions are necessary to effectively convey ideas as meter is the primary component of sound to form music. Meter (tempo,bpm) is the amount of sentences allowed in each paragraph (measure), and the paragraphs are formatted cohesively to form a unit of text (song/grand melody).

    A series of texts (songs) arranged to be read (played) in a certain order is a master index (symphony/album).

    That probably only makes sense to me.

    Edit: yeah, there's some flaws to the logic of this but I'm fucking lazy right now.
