Teacher: Dear freands! Today we are going to have an interesting lesson- hit-parade of the best music works in the 20-21st century. It is very useful information for all rock fans, it is a lesson of rock history. We are also going to listen to some pieces of rock music. And now look at this rock tree and listen Dasha and Misha- our discjockeys.

P1: What kind of music?
P2: Modern music.
P1: What is the main hobby of the teennagers?
P2: I think, music of our time.
P1: So, let is talk about the 20th and 21st century music.
P1: Look at this tree. Can you see how many branches modern music has?
P2: Oh, really? Where is the beginning? In the roots?
P1: Exactly. This is jazz. What is the time for jazz?
P2: The 30-s and 40-s years of the 20th century.
P1: And the birthplace?
P2: The USA.
P3: Jazz is improvised music.The great jazz musicians are individual players and not really composers.Jazz grew out of Negro blues, ragtime and marching brass bands in about 1900. Traditional jazz developed in New Orleans, a port in Louisiana. In the 1920s in New Orleans beautiful music filled the streets and cafes. The black and poor singers sang about their hard lives. Their music, jazz, ragtime and blues soon travelled to Europe. It was the time when the black music entered the whites culture changing the lifestyle of the people all over the world. Ever since the 1930s music was not just a way to relax. From that time on music began to reflect and determine the people,s way of life. Many Neogroes, French, Spanish-speaking Creoles lived there. The first well-known jazz soloist was Louis Armstrong. He introduced new ideas to jazz and was known as the “King of Jazz”. Jazz spread to Chicago and Kansas City, and later to New York, as Negroes travelled north looking for job. White people began plaing, bands grew bigger, with saxophones, more trumpets and trombones, a piano and sometimes a singer. One of the best bands was led by Duke Wellington, possibly the greatest
composer in the history of jazz.

P2: Jazz is perfect. But what were the new styles?
P1: Lets ask somebody.
P4: In the 1940s and 1950s new styles of music emerged. Swing, rock-n-roll and singers like Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry destroyed the laws of morality that were imposed on the people by the Church for centuries. In the 1950s Elvis Presley became the King of rock-n-roll in the USA. The music travelled to Europe soon. It was especially popular among the teenagers. The parents were really shocked by the music their children adored. The young people disagreed with their parents, wore jeans and danced to their rock-n-roll records.
P5: Elvis Presley was known as “ The King of rock-n-roll”.He was born in Mississippi in 1935. At the age of 13, Elvis and his family moved to memphis, Tennessee. There Elvis recorded his first song in 1954. He sold millions of records, served in the army, moved to Hollywood ahd appeared in 33 films. Elvis brought together the musical sounds of the blacks in America and of country people. Elvis songs are still popular today. People love to imate him. We can listen to one of his best songs “Love me tender’ in avery nice Russian film “An American Daughter”

P2: So, the King of rock-n-roll was Elvis Presley and who was the King of music in the 60s?
P1: The Beatles were, and their birthplace was in Liverpool, Great Britain.
P5: As the music of that time was too soft and tidy, the new generation of the 60s wanted something more energetic and powerful. In the 1960s in Great Britain a new band was created “The Beatles”. John Lennon and Paul McCartney were writing simple songs and performing them so brilliantly that they gave a new impulse for the development of the musical community. Other members of the famous group were George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Such songs as ‘Yesterday”,’Let it be”, “Love me do’ made them the most popular band not only in England, but throughout the world as well. From the British Isles their music quickly travelled to Europe, America and other continents. Early in 1964 was soon called “Beatlemania”. Their music inspired hundredsto create new music.

P1: Do you know, Dasha, that the 70s was the time of revolution in rock music?
P1: The gentle mood in the music has gone. The music became aggressive. It was a protest against the order.The styles are Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Trash Metal. The main groups are: ‘Pink Floyd”, “Deep People’, “Led Zeppilin”, ‘Iron Maiden”.
P6: Lets listen to “Pink Floyd”, an English group which performs in the style of acid rock: electronic equipment for light and sounds, special effects, intensely vivid sounds. The Album “The Wall” is very interesting.The main character of the ballads is a person who was a child, then a teenager, and at last a young man, but in any age he sees a wall of misunderstanding, hypocriticism. He wants to find the way out, but no resalt. I think, the songs are more tragial than aggressive.

P2: Nikita, what are the traits of the music in the 80s-90s?
P1: It is interesting that no single style was set. We can see a lot of new branches: “disco’, “new wave”, “punk”, ‘rap’, ‘hip-hop’. Let is take ABBA, a swedish music group, internationally famous and popular with people ofall ages.

P2: What can you say about the music of our 21st century, Misha?
P1: Technometal and Electronic Rock with groups:”Linken Park’ (the USA), “Rammstein’ (Germany) from one side and pop singers like Madonna, Michael Jackson , Spice Girls Backstreet boys, Britney Spears from the other.
P2: Tastes differ and I think everobody can choose his or her supper. Pop music is good for having rest. Let is have a break with pop music.
