While VLC is capable of playing music, it's not optimized for that job. If you are looking for an open source music app, Clementine is the one you want. And it is cross platform so you can run it on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.
It has a neat interface and can do much more than playing music. One of the reasons I like Clementine is that it supports network playback. Since I have multiple systems that run different operating systems, it's physically not possible for me to plug-unplug my few terabytes or hard drives from one system to another, or to keep duplicate copies of the same files. So I run a central file server and share files from one location to all these device using Samba share. Clementine allows me to connect to Samba server and play tracks directly from the networked drive.
Clementine has many more features that far exceed those found on Windows 10's built-in media player.
