Q: wrap yourself in a good music.

dosen't make sense? Does this sound natural?
A: Yes, the use of 'wrap' is understandable and does sound ok. You can also use 'immerse' which is more commonly use.

However 'music' (音楽) is an uncountable noun (不可算名詞), therefore it should be "good music", without the 'a'. Song (歌) is a countable noun (可算名詞), so if you want to use "a song", it is ok.

Both sentences below are ok:
1. Wrap / Immerse yourself in good music.
2. Wrap / Immerse yourself in a good song.
