People cannot live without music. They listen to music, they learn to play different musical instruments. In some ways music is language. People use it to express their moods and feelings. Some music is happy, and some is sad. Some is serious, and some can make people to laugh. Music in the lives of different people is different: some compose music, some play music and others only listen to it. A lot of people who cannot play any musical instruments love to listen to music either at home or at a concert. Different people are fond of classical music, chamber music, light music, serious music, jazz music and pop music.

As you know Elvis Presley was the King of Rock and Roll from the 30s to the 70s. Elvis Presley was born on 8 January 1935 in Mississippi. Elvis Loved music. He went to church every Sunday and sang in the choir. When he was 13, his mother bought him a guitar. In the same year his family moved to Memphis. One day in 1954 he went to a recording studio called. Sun Records. He wanted to make a record for his mother's birthday. The secretary at the studio heard Elvis and she told her boss, Sam Phillips. Elvis was Sam Phillips’s dream – “a white boy with a black voice.” Phillips became Elvis’s manager and Elvis made his first single – That’s All Right Mama. In 1955, Elvis appeared on TV in New York. Then he went to Hollywood and made his first film “Love Me Tender” In the next two years he had many hit records – Blue Suede Shoes, Heartbreak Hotel, Teddy, All Shook Up, Teddy Bear. In 1958, Elvis joined the American army and went to Germany. When he returned to the U.S in the early 60s, pop was not the same. British groups like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones were the new stars. He died of a heart attack on the 16th of August 1977 in his mansion at Graceland, Memphis. But for his millions of fans, Elvis is still the King. Elvis could really sing. Not like these kids today with all their electronics machines. “He was the King, man, the King of Rock and Roll”, - says Shane Lyons about Elvis.
Musical education in schools is very important. A music lesson is one of the favourite subject. Pupils prepare concerts for school holidays, learn new songs, play different musical instruments. The teacher of music tells the pupils about famous composers and teaches them to sing songs. If children are capable and fond of music they study at musical schools for eight years.
The pupils of our school like music and can’t imagine their life without it. Some of us like pop music. But others also enjoy classical music. Many pupils prefer to listen to music both when they are tired, in order to relax, and when they are happy. The others always listen to music (when they are doing homework, reading a book, helping about the house, going to walk). Many pupils like to dance and go to different dancing clubs. Some pupils are studying music at specialized schools, and it 1s interesting to discover that all of them like both classic and folk music. The children who are studying at specialized schools can play musical instruments, such as the piano, the accordion, the violin, the balalaika or the guitar.
I’d like to tell you about my favourite singer Stevie Wonder, In 1963 the record with the title “Little Stevie Wonder the 12th year Genious” appeared on the counters of American shops. 10 years later his records were included in the gold fund of world’s rock. Stevie Wonder was born on the 13th of May, 1950 in the little town Saginoy state Michigan. His rial name is Steven Judckins. He is blind from his birthday. From 5 years he was fond of music and soon he plaved the piano and song very well. Some time later the family removed in Detrott. The director of the firm “Tamla Motown” Berry Gordy was very surprised by little singer. In some month his first records under the litles “Stevie Wonder” apperarted. In 70s Stevie Wonder recorted on tape some beautiful intresting songs – “Music of My Mind” and “Talking Book”. After this time every his disc becomes a real event for the lovers of modern music.
