Where Did The Different Types Of Music Originate From

About Me 💁

I am Paris Grimes, and I'm a 10th grade student at Schlagle High School, I often listen to different types of music just to see what interest me most. Like of course all types of music isn't the same nor does it have the same beat. But I like listening to music a lot and I play a musical instrument my self.Songs have different rhythms and meaning to them wouldn't you like to know why?


This topic is important to me because personally I play an instrument myself. The different types of music we play can sometimes be something I've never heard before. Music is just something that you hear anywhere anytime.Music is physical. Music can be described as a sport. Learning to sing and keep rhythm develops coordination. The air and wind power necessary to blow a flute, trumpet or saxophone promotes a healthy body.

Essential Question☺️

I chose this question because I wanted to know where all the different types of music came from for example country music or rap music it's interesting to find that most of the music comes from the same place.Music is for life. Most people can’t play soccer, or football at 70 or 80 years of age but they can sing. And they can play piano or some other instrument. Music is a gift you can give your child that will last their entire lives.

Topic Explanation

No one really knows where Music came from but there are many theories that suggest music predates the existence of Mankind. One of the most commonly known uses for music was religious and sacred tribal events. In Mayan civilization music was used in celebration of a victory at war and even at the burial of influential figures. Some of the earliest recorded moments in Music took place in the Medieval times with choral pieces for church prayers. Much emphasis was placed in the organization and use of specific harmonies to create moods that would illicit a spiritual experience.

Even today, many people claim that music is the key to God and to a holy, more fulfilling life through the Church.

My Process

''Country music was developed from south Africa and western cowboy music in rural regions.''

''In 1956 little Juan had one of the biggest rhythm and blues hits of the year in Los Angeles''.
