A Brief History of Classical Music (Grade 1-5) covers C1400-1800

music historyClassical Music refers to music written and produced (mainly) in the western world beginning with the Gregorian chanting of monks in medieval Europe through to the modern day. Classical music can also more specifically refer to a smaller period between 1750 and 1830 when composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn produced extraordinarily wonderful music.

We are currently adding these pages as a new section to the program and there will no doubt be one or two errors (which will hopefully be politely pointed out by our readers). It will no doubt become much larger as we find time to add more information.

We will endeavour to add more quizzes as the section expands. The illustration of the musical time-line on the next page should give you an immediate visual idea of the chronology of the individual periods we will be dealing with. Grade 1 covers from 1400-1750 (approx.)
