How to define classical music?

Classical music is music from Europe around 14th century until today and it has developed many different styles of music. It was music for sophisticated class and music artists were highliy valuated proffesions.

Definiton of classical music originates from the Latin term classicus, meaning taxpayer of the highest class. Slowly after making its way through the French, German, and English languages, one of the earliest definitions of the word meant “classical, formall, orderlie, in due or fit ranke; also, approved, authenticall, chiefe, principall.” Today, one of the ways Merriam-Webster defines classical is “of, relating to, or being music in the educated European tradition that includes such forms as art song, chamber music, opera, and symphony.” You can define classical music as the mother of music.
