Music Eras
Offer Perspective

If you’re one that is seeking order in a world of absolute insanity, then music eras offer a nice neat way of categorizing the history of music. Of course, knowledge of eras may not give you the order that you so desire in your life, but at least you’ll be a more thoughtful and knowledgeable musician.

Music eras are often divided into the following categories:

• Medieval (500-1400)

• Renaissance (1400-1600)

• Baroque (1600-1750)

• Classical (1750-1830)

• Romantic (1830-1900)

• Twentieth Century (1900-present)

The dates are approximate, but commonly agreed upon. As for what happened within these eras, the terminology used for categorizing music styles becomes rather extensive. Consider, for example, the last above mentioned era. In the twentieth century alone, the amount of different genres of music is mind boggling. Jazz, pop and rock music have so many different styles and categories that describe their particular types of music.

For more on music styles, check out the extensive list in Ready, Set, Compose!
