Classical music is now ancient, not old school by, Kiana Douby and David Villagra, staff reporters

Music is art that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, and harmony. To some people music is a pain killer. People express their feelings through melodies and lyrics.

“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life,” said Berthold Auerbach from

Music has developed throughout generations. Children have gone from little nursery rhymes to Classic, Jazz/Blues, Opera, Rock/Punk/Metal, R&B/Hip Hop, Rap, etc. Little kids who grew up to nursery rhymes are now doing the Cat Daddy and the Dougie at school dances. The first electric guitar, invented by Adolph Rickenbacker in 1931, was a semi-hollow body guitar with sound holes.

There have been a lot of change in the sounds of music. There are also new singers with different voices bringing in different sounds. The instruments have changed as well. 50 years ago acoustics were much more popular, Mr. Nisonoff, special-ed teacher, “grew up listening to modern” and as a musician  prefers “acoustic as of right now.”

Music will continue changing with new instruments and new talent. In this generation you can synthesize and produce a sound; however, most people can’t make a sound without an instrument nor with pure, music talent and vision.
