Tempo is the speed of the piece, melody is the main focus (aka a part that a singer would sing in an band), and rhythm is a pattern of beats. Harmony can be used as well which means two voices or instruments are singing two different pitches at the same time. Music can either be composed on sheet music and followed note by note or improvised. By voice or instrument in a group, individually or even have computer you can create music.

If someone is singing lyrics to a pattern of rhythm and pitches that would be classified as a song or chant. Since the beginning of time song was used in worship, celebrations or express emotion. In religious ceremonies they usually sing about their 'god' and their life story and is the key of worshiping to their higher power. During birthday parties or holidays their songs that express the joy of that time period: for example "Happy Birthday to you". Depending where you live and what is happening in society it would be reflected in a composition. Different styles of music is called a genres.
