I think in the context you were trying to use "Japanese" that you meant to say the person, right? In that case, Japanese person is 日本人. 日本語 is just the language.
As for music, I personally like using music as a practice tool. Singing is especially fun. Although music isn't my main tool. I am not sure whether it's good or bad either, I guess a neutral kind of benefit?
