Even though music speaks, it is not its own language. Mostly because there are different languages within music. Depending on where you are from, it has its own meaning and if it were to be considered a language, all music would have the same basic meaning in which it does not.

No- A language is defined as:

lan"guage
G2;laNGɡwij/
noun
1.
the method of human communication, either spoken or written, consisting of the use of words in a structured and conventional way

You cannot communicate most phrases in music- for example, try telling someone to close the door with the piano. Unless you sing, which is considered the english language, or tap morse code, (obviously considered morse code) you cannot communicate through music.

Therefore, music does not meet the criteria to be considered a language.

Yeah i believe music is a language, We even tried using it to communicate into "space" and possibly find new life.

If a language is a code used to communicate a message, we can say music is a language.
