Sparta was pretty much like every other Greek state. They had music, art and poetry. During the seventh century, a musician named Terpander came to Sparta and established himself there. He is called the “father of Greek music”. The most widely known Spartan musician was Tyrtaeus. He lived during the Second Messenian War and it was said his music inspired many Spartan soldiers to new heights of bravery.
