Transcript of Music in the 1920s and Music Now

Conclusion The 1920s was a time of renewal and
regeneration. People were comforted by music such
as jazz. It gave them a sense of hope for the future and led them to have courage in themselves and their lives. Today's music is completely different. The music of 2012 focuses on material things or desires. American music of today does not sound as uplifting as that of the 1920s. I feel as if America has forgotten what we have gone through to get where we are today. Much of the music of the 1920s focused on giving strength from the war that was fought and had ended. The music of today does not parallel anything of that. American music has changed for the worse in terms of meaning, but will only
become more recognized as it progresses
through the decades. General Music in the 1920s Music in the 1920s and Now During the 1920s, jazz was being played in dance halls all over the country. Early jazz influences found their first mainstream expression in the music used by marching bands and dance bands of the day, which was the main form of concert music in the early twentieth century. Live Entertainment in the 1920s The 1920's were Broadway's prime years, with over 50 new musicals opening in just one season. Overall in the 1920s, Broadway was bursting with energy and enterprise. The theater was filled with hope and fresh ideas, and new styles of craftsmanship. And with the organization of the Theater Guild, Broadway became a brilliant center that influenced the theater of the world. Live Entertainment of 2012 Actors from movies and television are frequently cast for the revivals of Broadway shows or are used to replace actors leaving a cast. This draws in larger audiences or brings in new audience members to the theatre. Shows on Broadway have become much more superior with use of the technological advancements, but it still envelopes the audience as well as it did in the 1920s. Musical Culture in the 1920s Pop culture during the 1920s was characterized by the flapper, automobiles, nightclubs, movies, and jazz. This music spread from New Orleans with the Great Migration of African Americans in search of improved economic opportunities during World War I. Jazz captured the spirit of the time, and even today it is considered classical American music. General Music of 2012 Over the last 100 years or so America has been producing much incredible original music and musical styles. American music has been enjoyed throughout the world and gone a long way to be one of the few things people in foreign nations find appealing about the United States. Musical Culture in 2012 It is easy to see that American music has taken a turn for the worse. Creativity has become stagnant. What is considered good music in today's music scene can only be described as superficial and redundant. The truly great music of today is merely a remaking of what has come before it. Today's music is more about sexual arousal and the drugged mind than real talent and creativity such as in the 1920s. by Katrina Dumuk
