arpeggio  [ ahr · PEJ · ee · oh ]  noun:

in music, the sounding of the notes of a chord in rapid succession instead of simultaneously.

To play or sing an arpeggio, the musician must sound each element of the chord one at a time, so every note is

heard individually.  All humans play important roles within our social circles, work communities and in society.

Each of these roles is equally valuable individually, while providing a unique contribution to the world around us.
