Note-ables in Music

By Kon, Fiona, Chelsey and Julie

Opera Music Instruments
Rock Music Instruments
Classical music is a broad genre as it covers orchestra, piano music, violin music and more. A numerous amount of musical instruments are required to produce classical music:

Double bass



Piano and Harp:


Classical Music Cultural Origins
Classical music began in the medieval period between 1150-1400, in the Western Roman Empire. During these times the Classical musical instruments consisted of the flute, recorder and pan flute which were all made out of wood.

Rock Music Cultural Origins
Rock music originated around 1955, with greats such as Elvis Presley, Bill Haley and His Comets and Chuck Berry bursting onto the scene (Peterson 1990, p97). Peterson suggests that three influences caused the emergence of rock music – the arrival of creative artists, the changing audience and the commercial industry.
It is not enough to categorise only instruments as influence in the realm of electronica as known in today's modern-day computer generated sounds. Influence drawn from the late 1800's, and the singing arc and then the dawn of electronic technology in the mid 1900's, seeing instruments such as, violins, basses, pianos and the Banjos integrate amplification and instrument synthesizing with interpretation of circuit boards have led the way in today’s computer generated sounds. However, most significant to influence these sounds are the inventions found on the Typical Instruments page.

Classical Music Influential Artists

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827) was a deaf composer. He was a major influence in classical music, in particular with 'Ode to Joy'.
Other influential artists include Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1792) who composed hits such as 'Symphony 40' and 'Eine Klein Nachtmusik'. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) was an influence on classical music in the ballet as he composed such hits as 'Nutcracker Suit' and 'Swan Lake'.

Classical music has a reputation of being old fashioned. There are very few social impacts however, research has shown there have been other impacts such as: improving child spatial reasoning, decreasing tension and increasing brain function when learning.

Classical Music Social Impact

There are a number of influential artists in rock music history. Elvis Presley was a major influence in the 1950’s. The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix in the 1960’s. The 1970’s saw the emergence of rock superstars like Queen and David Bowie.

Rock Music Influential Artists
Rock music is generally aimed at teenagers, focussing on the rebellion and defiance of adults and authority (The Columbia Encyclopedia 2014). In the 1960’s, rock music covered political awareness, sex, drugs and social protest. Rock music has best been described as “a form of human conversation” (Frith 2006).

"[When] you’ve got someone as big as Luther Vandross and Michael Jackson sitting there saying, 'Whatever you want, however you want it, I’ll stay here as long as you need me,' that’s the reward right there," (Knuckles 2011)

The Opera Orchestra comprises - Strings, Woodwind, Brass and Percussion.

Opera encompasses staging, costume, architecture, music, drama and ballet and is culturally reponsible for advancements in all of these artistic pursuits.

Initially only for Royalty, 17th Century Italy saw the first Opera House open to the masses. Opera's opulence, drama and accessability created a venue that drew people to gather and be enriched culturally.
Opera Music Cultural Origins
The 19th Century saw “A succession of great divas …and no male singer could match their popularity” [V&A, 2015]

Jenny Lind, Nellie Melba, Janet Baker, Maria Callas and Joan Sutherland are examples.

The key instruments used in Rock Music are the electric guitar, bass guitar and drums. Whilst other instruments have also been used, such as piano/keyboard, these three key instruments remain the constant instruments used in this genre of music

Arguably as imperative to sustaining mankind through the ages as eating or breathing is the innate desire to express oneself through sound. This creative expression has led to our collaboration which adhers to Metzger's principals (Metzger,2007), of four varying and independently researched examples of musical genres. Whilst merely endeavouring to introduce the arena of 'Note-ables' in Music, we hope to entice readers to perhaps sample a new and previously unfamiliar musical genre.

With vast information pools and complex online navigation driving the learning experience for music, an adopted cross sectional viewpoint for establishing credibility of knowledge to assimilate has been undertaken. Drawing upon Metzger's’ framework (2007, pp. 2078-2091), aspects most critical to research knowledge base have been established quantifying, time relevance; ensuring that information is consistent and free from errors; along with establishing the authorized nature of the source. In instances where by the information pertains to still or moving imagery, the adoption of Fritch and Cromwell (2001, 2002) “model for ascribing cognitive authority to Internet information and the notion for credibility”, and quality has been imparted.

Music means different things to different people, however it is rare to find someone who hasn't been touched by music in some way.
