Music Genre's By Jess Definition of Genre Genre- A term widely used to single something out from the others. It is a french word meaning 'type'.
For example, different music genres would be, rock, pop, hip pop, jazz, country, classical, indie etc. Pop Pop Music is a genre of popular music which orignated in its modern form in the 1950's. As a genre, pop music is very eclectic, often borrowing elements from other styles including urban, dance, rock, latin and country. Conventions of a Pop Magazine For a start, the name of the magazine is 'We love Pop' which automatically informs the reader that the magazine is all about pop music. The main image is of a famous popstar which draws in the readers attention, especially if they like that type of music. Most of the other images are of other popstars which adds to the 'pop' theme. The colour scheme used is very bright, which has a 'pop' feel, as pop music is normally very upbeat and people can dance to it. There are also fashion sell lines, to help readers to the 'pop fashion' look which would appeal to younger readers. Country Country music originated in the rural regions of the Southern United States in the 1920's. It usually consists of dance tunes with generally simple forms and harmonies accompanied by mostly string instruments. List of Pop Singers/Bands Britney Spears
