Music is a group of sounds which are harmonic.
Music is very important for many people. Listening to the music improves our fantasy and our inner (vnitrni) world. I think that there is not anyone in the world who hates music. Every time period has its own music style. You can learn very much about old times while listening the old songs or music works.
For me music is very important part of my life. I listen to the music every day. The first thing that I do when I wake up is that I switch the radio or TV on. I listen to the music while I am learning or surfing on the Internet. Also when I go anywhere I have to listen to my CD walkman. I could say that I can not live without music.
The music goes with you from beginning of your life until your death. Music is played in many occasions. In personal events like wedding, funeral, graduation, birth and christening or lullaby. Or in official celebrations like victory, state holidays, political events (national anthem) Music is also close connected with your free time. You listen to music on the ground of (z duvodu) relaxation and entertainment.
The music that we can listen to is very various. There are plenty of kinds of music. The old music is called classical music. You can find here very famous composers like Beethoven, Mozart or Dvorak. The kinds of music works are very various from opera to symphony. This sort of music isn’t now very wide listened but it has always its listeners.
Another kind of music is jazz and blues. Jazz has its roots in blues. Blues is the music of black slaves who worked in the fields. It is full of improvisation and it is played by small group of musicians. Jazz is more sophisticated music. It could be played by an orchestra or like the blues by a small group of musicians. I prefer blues for its spontaneity.
Another kind of music that is connected to a special group of people is a country music. It begun to be played by cowboys in USA. Now it is listened by a truck drivers and people who like tramping.
Rock’n’roll and rock were the most favourite music couple years ago. It was very hard for elder people to accept the new and very different music than they were used to listen. It was kind of protest against the life style. The music was very wild apart from the music that was listened before. It was something like a revolution in the world of music. The artists started to play electric instruments, music was very loud and it has a simple rhythm and was easy to remember. In the beginning the critics said that the rock music was a matter of short time but it stays and it is listened today as much as it was listened twenty years ago.
In these days the most widespread (rozsireny) music is the pop-music. There are many kinds of it. From new kinds of rock music to techno or hip hop music. It is very hard to classify some groups now because the styles are very mixed nowadays. The very new kinds of music like techno are played in the discos. The song has very simple rhythm and use the beat and drums very much. It is music on that you can dance all night and you do not have to think about the text. It is music that helps you to let off steam (vybit se) and forget the problems. I do like this kind of music but I do not listen to it at home often.
