Types of music icons

To designate music, people usually use musical notes. Quaver (eighth notes), to be exact.
There are two types that are seen everywhere:
  •  one eighth note
  •  two eighth notes beamed together (more frequently)

Their popularity is understandable and there is no need to explain much why people perceive musical notes as a symbol of music. The earliest form of musical notation can be found on a cuneiform tablet that was created around 2000 BC, so it's quite an established pattern.

However, these are not the only options for music icons. Depending on what you want to express, other related symbols can also be used:
  • headphones
  • treble clef
  • musical instruments (guitar, violin, etc.)
  • microphone (if you are referring to live music, for example)
  • sheet music
