History of Music Classical music, as we use it on this site, basically includes thousands
of years of time. This area basically describes the history of classical music.
When we speak of classical music, we are talking of the western influence.
We aren't talking about the ancient eastern music of the Asian continent.
Classical music can be organized in a variety of ways. This section divides
music into six historical periods: Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque,
Classical, Romantic and the Contemporary. Each period is briefly described.
and includes a list of important composers, some song files
provided by our generous sponsors, an option to buy some recordings,
and recommended recordings. Also, there is an organized layout which we used
to organize information on this site. We'd like to thank Classical Insites for
helping us acquire sound files and information of these periods. Most of the
information included in this site was from my notes after taking two years of
music theory in high school. To learn more about any of these time periods,
please contact a music theorist specializing in the specific time period
you would like to know about.
