Two pages will be easy once you do some pre-writing (journaling) and then narrow your topic. Is this an opinion essay or will you be giving mostly information about a type of music? If it's an opinion paper, start by freewriting about your relationship with music. What kind do you like? Or play some music while writing - what does it make you think of, feel, etc.? 

Or, if it's informative, try to focus on one kind of music, or one artist, or one theme (idea about life). Then use what you know or do a little research.

I can help more if I know a little more about your assignment.

what do you like is not everything for you.

important is that what is your need, a wish can only be a sweet dream which will have an end but the thing you need will remain a great thing to admire and remember forever.

So music is identity of pleasure which you get from it.threr may be as many types of music but what makes a moment of joy and relief is the best music for you.

You clearly need to narrow this topic down somewhat and rather rapidly. Have a think about what interests you about music. Is there a particular composer/band/group that you really like that you could focus on? Or what about a piece of music? Once you can focus on a particular area then you need to work out your thesis statement and begin researching. Go where your interest is though - incredibly important.

You need to be more specific.  Is this for an English class or a music class?  The approach would differ.  Either way, you might begin by describing how music affects your life.  How do you make music a part of your life?  How do you feel about music?  Do you need music?
