It wasn't up to Muhammad to implement music into worship. One worships God from himself/herself by reaching for God spiritually, with all our heart, mind and soul.

It's because what is recited in the mosque during our formal prayers is itself wonderful music for us to connect to God spiritually. We don't need to whistle, clap or dance to draw attention of God towards us.

That is about our formal worship and prayer recitation such as in a mosque but we can mix music with anything like that outside the formal worship. We can call it zikr or praise but it is not formal worship but just remembering God that way. Here is a bit from my fellow British guy Sami Yusuf:
