History of Music
The music of any culture is influenced by any and all aspects
within that culture, including the social experience, climate,
visual art, and technology. The ideas expresses in music, the
places where music is played or listened to, the support for
composers, musicians, and the arts in general vary between
countries and periods. Music history is typically the study of
western art music from a chronological perspective

The names for the musical periods have always been borrowed
from art history, and tend follow similar goals. The dates for
each period are only approximate, though they provide a
helpful guide to studying music history.

The piano is a musical instrument played by means of a
keyboard. It is one of the most popular instruments in the
world. Widely used in classical music for solo
performances, ensemble use, chamber music and
accompaniment, the piano is also very popular as an aid
to composing and rehearsal.
Keyboard has been around since 1965 researching and
discovering thousands of ways to manipulate piano
chords and apply them to all sorts of music, from jazz to
gospel, from the blues to pop.
General Music GENRE
-Hip Hop-Hip hop music is an American musical genre that
developed as part of hip hop culture, which is defined by four key
stylistic elements: MCing/rapping, DJing/scratching, breaking/dancing
and graffiti writing.[1][2][3][4] Other elements include sampling (or
synthesis), and beatboxing. The term rap music is often used
synonymously with the term hip hop music, but rap vocals are not
required for music to be considered "hip hop".

- Jazz- Jazz is a musical style that originated at the beginning of the
20th century in African American communities in the Southern United
States; it was born from a confluence of African and European music
traditions. From its early development until the present, jazz has
incorporated music from 19th and 20th century American popular
music.[1] Its West African pedigree is evident in its use of blue notes,
improvisation, polyrhythms, syncopation, and the swung note. The
word "jazz" (in early years also spelled "jass") began as a West Coast
slang term and was first used to refer to music in Chicago at about 1915.

- Gospel- Gospel music is music that is written to express either
personal, spiritual or a communal belief regarding Christian life, as
well as (in terms of the varying music styles) to give a Christian
alternative to mainstream secular music.

- R & B- Rhythm and Blues, often abbreviated to R&B, is a genre of
popular African American music that originated in the 1940s.[1] The
term was originally used by record companies to describe recordings
marketed predominantly to urban African Americans, at a time when
"urbane, rocking, jazz based music with a heavy, insistent beat" was
becoming more popular

-Neo Soul- Neo soul is a term coined by music industry
entrepreneur Kedar Massenburg during the late 1990s to market and
describe a style of music that emerged from soul and contemporary
R&B.[1] Heavily based in soul music, neo soul is distinguished by a less
conventional sound than its contemporary R&B counterpart,[1][2] with
incorporated elements ranging from jazz, funk, and hip hop to pop,
fusion, and African music.

-Funk- Funk is a music genre that originated in the mid-late 1960s
when African American musicians blended soul music, jazz and R&B
into a rhythmic, danceable new form of music. Funk de-emphasizes
melody and harmony and brings a strong rhythmic groove of electric
bass and drums to the foreground. Funk songs are often based on an
extended vamp on a single chord, distinguishing it from R&B and soul
songs, which are centered on chord progressions.

-Country- Country music (or country and western) is a blend of
traditional and popular US musical forms traditionally found in the
Southern United States and the Canadian Maritimes that evolved rapidly
beginning in the 1920s.[1] Distinctive variations of the genre have also
emerged elsewhere including Australian country music.

-Classic- Classical music is the art music produced in, or rooted in,
the traditions of Western liturgical and secular music, encompassing a
broad period from roughly the 11th century to present times.[1] The
central norms of this tradition became codified between 1550 and
1900, which is known as the common practice period.
