The subject area of music is both an interesting one and large one. It could focus around a certain genre, learning to play an instrument or how to mix and produce your own music.
There is a lot to learn when it comes to these areas of music as well as many more areas concerned with the subject of music.
Music’s history goes back to the beginning of time. Words weren’t even needed to make beautiful sounds with any available ‘instrument’.
Music is expression and has blossomed into a variety of genres for any occasion and any emotion. Music comes from the soul of its creator.
Most musicians will tell you that they don’t know where the music comes from, they just know it’s what they have to do. The first type of music dates back to the beginning of time when the first human mother sung a lullaby to her sleepy baby. As people progressed, music started to change too.
Drums and rain sticks were made as the first instruments, then later on there were fiddles and guitars to add to the music.
I Love Andrea Bocelli!!
Gibson’s Learn & Master Guitar Home School Edition is the world’s most complete DVD-based Homeschool curriculum for learning guitar. This course is designed to take a student from a beginner to a master level of guitar playing. “Learn & Master Guitar is a phenomenal program.
It’s clear and concise and watching the DVDs is like having your very own guitar instructor in the room with you. The course is extremely thorough and well planned out. It’s like having at least a year’s worth of guitar lessons in one complete package!
I wish a program like this existed when I was learning to play—it would have saved me a lot of time and frustration!!!” – Michael Elsner, Professional Guitar Player, Encino, CA.
There are many types of music. The most popular types are pop, rhythm and blues, country, folk, alternative, and punk. There is also a type of traditional music for every culture.
FACTS ABOUT MUSIC Music was sent down a telephone line for the first time in 1876, the year the phone was invented. The CD was developed by Phillips and Sony in 1980. The Star Spangled Banner became the US National Anthem in 1931. Prior to that, it was “My County Tis Of Thee” which has the same melody as Britain’s National Anthem, “God Save The Queen.”
This is based on music written by John Bell in 1619. Bell’s melody has been used more that any song in National Anthems. It was at a concert in Minneapolis in 1954 that Al Dvorin first closed Elvis’s concerts with: ” Ladies and Gentlemen, Elvis has left the Building. Thank you and Good Night.”
The LP record (long-playing) record was invented by Paul Goldmark in 1948. The Longest Song to reach number one on the Billboard Charts on LP was “I’d Do Anything For Love” by Meatloaf. The shortest song was “Stay” by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs.
The Beatles holds the top spot of album sales in the US (106Million), followed by Garth Brook s second, (92 million), Led Zeppelin (83 million), Elvis Presley, (77 million), and the Eagles, (65 million).
World wide the Beatles sold more than 1 billion records. A grand piano can be played faster than an upright (spinet) piano. The last note of a keyboard is C. The term “disc jockey” was first used in 1937.
Beethoven was the first composer who never had an official court position, thus the first known freelance musician. Born in 1770, he grew up poor, but published his first work at age 12. By age 20 he was famous.
He often sold the same score to six or seven different publishers simultaneously, and demanded unreasonably large fees for the simplest work. He was short, stocky, dressed badly, didn’t like to bath, lived in squalor, used crude language, openly conducted affairs with married women, and had syphilis.
Beethoven was deaf when he composed his Ninth Symphony.
The top selling singles of all time are Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind ‘97″, at 33 million, Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas”, 30 million, and Bill Haley’s “Rock Around the Clock”, 25 million.

In some way, music affects everyone. Whether it is, a young girl’s favorite song on the radio, a college student’s escape from reality or a form of entertainment to a married couple, music brings everyone together. Music definitely affects the lifestyles of people in many different ways.
The diverse styles of music makes people look and act differently. Music has many different levels. To me, levels meaning; the more independent and progressive the music is, the more the fans take it to the extreme.
Music creates style. It causes people to talk, act, and dress the way they do. I hope to discover how much music influences people, especially college students. Also, the more fascinated they are the more influences it has to them.
I would like to prove, that to some, music is nothing more than the pop song playing on the radio in the car, and to others, it is a major part of their life. It is very interesting to me, to learn the effects music has toward people.
Most new players practice until they get it “right”. If you want to excel at playing an instrument(or any discipline), you have to practice, until you can’t get it wrong.

Music reduces depression, by helping to lift up the broken and sorrowful heart. Music relaxes the nerves. Music can affect the body and the mind positively.
