  3. Chapter 2 Section 2.2 Music Categories

  4. Musical Categories • Like the instruments used to make it, music itself can be categorized in many ways. • Genre- a particular type of music with a distinctive form or sound • Ex: Jazz is a genre of music

  5. Musical Categories • Another way to category music is by the musical style • Musical Style- a form of expression within a musical genre • Ex: Grunge rock is a style of rock genre

  6. Musical Categories • One of most common ways to classify music is to use three broad categories. • Traditional • Popular • Classical

  7. Music Categories • How do you know if it’s traditional, popular, or classical music after you’ve listened to it? • There are certain distinctions that some with making the right decision. • Clues are right infront of you sometimes especially when you go to a concert. • For example, torn blue jeans are as unlikely to be seen at the opera as formal clothes to a rock festival.

  8. Musical Categories • Even though clothes can help you decide between different categories, the lines are slowly getting blurred over time. • Sometimes casual clothing is often worn, at least by audience members to outdoor classical concerts.

  9. What type of concert is this? How do you know? What characteristics help you figure this out?

  10. Musical Categories • A different way to categorize music can be to determine the larger social and cultural context. • Who uses the music? How and why was it created? • Finding out the larger context of it can help you understand and appreciate the music better.

  11. Traditional Music • Traditional Music- informal music that develops within and is strongly associated with a cultural group or region. • Sometimes referred to as “folk music.” • This is closely tied with language, environment, and social customs. • This is the oldest and most widespread category of music • Almost all customs and peoples have developed some type of traditional music. • This can be used in ceremonial, religious, celebratory, or entertainment purposes.

  12. Born in 1902 in Payneville, Alabama, just outside of Livingston in Sumter County, Vera Hall grew up to establish one of the most stunning bodies of American folk music on record • John Avery Lomax, ethnomusicologist, met Hall in the 1930s and recorded her for the Library of Congress. Lomax wrote that she “had the loveliest voice [he] had ever recorded.” The British Broadcasting System played Hall’s recording of “Another Man Done Gone” in 1943 as a sampling of American folk music. The Library of Congress played the song the same year in commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. In 1945, Hall recorded with Byron Arnold. In 1984, the recordings were released as a Collection of Folksongs entitled Cornbread Crumbled in Gravy. • •

  13. Popular Music • Popular Music- music intended for a wide audience, often featuring prominent melodies. • This is the primary form of entertainment and can also be participatory. • Audience members are invited to clap and sing along. • Popular music has its roots in traditional and classical music. • Contemporary society often identifies popular music with the commercial aspects of music. • This is a good example of YOUR music.

  15. Bell Ringer 9/6/12 • What is the difference between Popular music and Traditional music?

  16. Classical Music • Classical Music- style of “art” music that stands apart from traditional or popular music. • Classical musicians usually have formal training, and performances tend to be more refined and less spontaneous. • Audience members usually don’t participate and it is not encouraged. • Classical music traditions were originally associated with the more educated members of society. • At one time, only the wealthier citizens and leaders were allowed to access this category of music.

  18. Evaluate Music • Listen to the 4 examples and try to place them in the correct category. • In the first two categories, identify the following: • It’s a social function. Where would you hear it? What function does it serve? • Its music qualities. What do you hear? Do you hear repetition? A strong beat or melody? • CD 1 #33 “La Bamba” • CD1 #34 “Adagio for Strings” • CD1 #35 “La Bamba” • CD1 #36 “Adagio for Strings”
