Music throughout the ages has varied in many ways. From notation and sound, to technical elements in music, these changes have been quite dramatic, and impactful on today's music.
Original forms of music were very simple, and primitive. These forms of music were strictly vocal, mainly due to lack of instruments.
Most forms of ancient music were religious. There was other music, called secular music, but it was far less likely to be written down than religious music. Music gradually evolved into what it is today. This book will cover the years 1890 to 1990, their history, and the music that they encompassed. An entire century of music and its history.

Part One:
Music History From 1890 to 1920
History that led to the Music Of 1890 to 1920
Throughout history, music has changed significantly. Music is often written because of historical events of the time. This is a common theme in music, and it shows in different ways over the course of time.
Some important time periods relating to music are the Middle Ages (fall of the Roman empire to somewhere in the early 15th century, exact dates are unknown), the Renaissance period (roughly 1450 to 1600), the Baroque period (1600 to 1750) the Classical period (1750 to 1820) the Romantic period (1820 to 1900) the 20th century, and beyond.
The dates 1890 to 1920 fall into the Romantic period, and some of the 20th century. The previous Baroque period came directly before the Classical period, which was followed by the Romantic period. The Baroque period had greatly impacted music as a whole. During the Baroque period, the concept of tonality became used more frequently. Tonality is the arrangement of pitches or chords in a musical composition, to fit a certain key.
