Answer 1

Well, Christian Music mostly began when God created people.

I mean, in The Bible, they sang praises to God.

I'd say that's music.

Answer 2

The history of chanting at worship ceremonies goes back before history was written. Chanting was part of religious observances of religions of all kinds from all over the world. Chanting at Christian services dates back to around 300 in many parts of Europe and the 'Gregorian Chant' dates to the time of Pope St Gregory the Great (540-604). The period known as the 'Silver Age of Chant' (900-1300) added music to chanting which spread throughout Europe and the different types of music of the different regions becoming the hymns we're familiar with today. When Christianity moved to the new world, once again the music evolved, separated from European musical influence. The biggest contribution to Christian music as we know it was the 'Negro Spirituals" which was one form of intellectual expression not forbidden to the slaves. They added variety, fervor, and new sounds to the old hymns. I didn't see it in the histories, but I can also hear the strong influence of the hill and country folk of the last century. Now in the twenty first century, Christian music is still evolving and will continue to do so.

Is The Rock a Christian?

Yes, in fact it is. All music is Christian; it just matters on who and how you sing it. All music genres have a bad history, (especially rap/urban music) and some people just won't accept it as Holy music. But God has created all music for Him, but man has changed it and used it in their own evil ways.
