Music is the most exalted form of expression and universal communication that the human race has. Any dream that features music is connecting both to a deep passion to express as well as the fundamental structure of life itself. Music is mathematical in nature. This is what makes it perfectly universal. Music might be considered the highest form of creative expression available to the human race. This is evidenced by the importance our society places on music and musicians and the powerful influence that music exerts over people. In all cultures throughout history, the presence of music has created the possibility of people being connected through joy. Not only does music have the capacity to bring human beings together in a shared sense of ecstasy, but it has been shown to exert a powerful influence over animals and plant life as well. When music appears in a dream, your first consideration should be to examine areas in your waking life where you are allowing yourself (or not allowing yourself) to connect to spontaneous self- expression.
If you are hearing music in your dream, you may be receiving messages from your unconscious to open yourself to a deeper, more joyful sense of life.
The degree of pleasantness of the music in your dream may represent your current relationship to your intuitive and emotional nature that goes beyond intellectual understanding.
If you are making the music in the dream, you may want to examine areas of your life where creative endeavors are ready to thrive.
If background music plays a pivotal role in your dream, you may want to consider this as an underscoring to subtle emotional issues that may be getting ready to emerge into your conscious awareness. In the same way that music deepens the emotional meaning in a film, music may serve to highlight the importance of a dream.
If this seems to be the case, remember the manipulative nature of this use of music’s power. You may want to examine ways in which your emotions may be influencing your view of some area of your life in ways that may not be authentic. This could show up in the form of drama in a current situation that might be more effectively dealt with using a more pragmatic and less emotional approach.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

If the music you hear is discordant, it may suggest that your creative potential isn’t being expressed. See also SOUNDS.... The Element Encyclopedia
Hearing music in your dreams generally has positive connotations. Music is a healing balm to the soul, and as you are listening to it in your dream, you may be connected to the wonderful, creative spirit or flow of life, suggesting a degree of inner harmony and emotional expression. Music in waking life is one of the most powerful and expressive mediums available and through music it is possible to convey feelings that are impossible to put into words. It is much the same in your dreams, where a beautiful melody can express your sense of feeling sweet, peaceful and harmonious, whereas a clash of harsh notes may reflect emotional discord or feeling out of tune with the people in your life.
The type of music that features in your dreams may have significance, especially if it was music you do not usually listen to in waking life. For example, if you love classical music but dreamt of a pop song, your unconscious may have retrieved the song from your memory because it portrays perfectly how you are feeling at present.
If you dreamed of classical music but are a modern music fan, this may be a reference to old-fashioned tastes and values with which you feel in tune. The dream may also be urging you to listen a little more to the advice of older people.
If you dreamed of choosing a song on a juke box, the song you chose may express how you are currently feeling. Dream drum rolls may be urging you to pay attention to someone or keep in step and conform to others in waking life.
According to Freud, a martial or rhythmical drum beat could suggest intercourse but another interpretation suggests that it could symbolize the voice of your unconscious or unspoken feelings that arise from the depths of your inner self.
If you were listening passively to music in your dream, this may be referring to your emotional reaction to a waking situation, but if you were actively making music, humming along or tapping the rhythm, this may be about your emotional involvement with someone or something. Dreams about music may also be urging you to explore your perhaps neglected potential for personal creativity, of which music is a common symbol.
If you were playing an instrument, the choice of instrument will also be significant.
If you were playing drums, are you trying to drum up support for something or someone, or did the dream suggest that something needs to be drummed into your head? If you clashed a pair of cymbals, this might suggest a clash of conflicting opinions, whilst blowing a trumpet may suggest bragging or your feelings of triumph. The black and white symbolism of piano keys could indicate the need to see things clearly, in black and white, or to harmonize extreme opinions. Don’t forget the sexual symbolism of musical instruments too. Freudians would, for example, regard a flute as a phallic symbol and the curved bodies of violins or guitars as a feminine symbol. Finally, dreams of playing instruments may simply be encouraging you to nurture a real-life talent for music. See also ARTS AND CRAFTS.... The Element Encyclopedia
