The philosophy of music stipulates that man hardly completes communal life without the instrument of music which is a basic instrument of social cohesion and national development in all human endeavors. In fact, music is not an alternative to living but an enhancement of life and a valuable source of ideas and concepts. Music is the craftsmanship of an expressive thought in sound which is usually broader based. Generally, enquiries about music continually led to queries about the other arts and, link also to the ideas and beliefs that characterize human culture. Therefore, in this paper, the possible best approaches to the methodology of research in music are discussed. The concept of research – a systematic investigation designed to develop and contribute to general knowledge – is an indispensable tool to national development and especially musicology. Music research promotes growth and development in skills, competencies and attitudes; it also develops cognitive and psychomotor skills. The primary aim of an effective research in music is to provide an atmosphere where students can develop an understanding for their musical heritage and the music of other world culture.
