Music is everywhere in our lives. We hear it on the radio, on TV, on the transport, in the streets, in the shops and cafes, everywhere. People buy tapes, go to different concerts, visit concert halls and opera theaters. For someone music is just a hobby. He or she learns to play a musical instrument at a musical school, sings in choir or tries to compose music. For somebody else it’s a profession. There are professional singers who sing alone or in a group, musicians who play different instruments in orchestras, composers who write music, and conductors who direct choirs and orchestras.

A) Now read a short history of rock music. Check your ideas. Can you explain each label?

Rock music in one form or another is now the most popular type of music all over the world. But where did it come from?

Black Music

Rock began in the USA in the early 1950s. At that time, ‘rhythm and blues’ music was very popular with black Americans. ‘R & B” was a mixture of black religious music (‘gospel’) and jazz. It had strong rhythms that you could dance to and simply, fast lyrics.

Rock & Roll

Noticing the success of R&B music, white musicians started to copy the same style. But the mid 1950s, this new white R&B music, called ‘rock & roll’, had become very popular. Singers like Elvis Presley and Bill Haley attracted millions of teenage fans. Their music was fast and loud. Many older people thought that ‘rock & roll’ was very dangerous.

But the early 1960s, even rock’n’roll had become old-fashioned. Many of the songs had begun to sound the same. It was at that time that a new group from England became popular: The Beatles.

The Beatles

The Beatles first started by singing Americans style songs, but they soon developed their own style, with more complicated melodies. They also introduced different instruments, such as the Indian sitar: groups like The Beatles had a very important influence on the style of popular music. By the early 1970s, rock’n’roll had developed into a new form of music. Electronics had replaced the amplified guitar and drums of rock’n’roll. ‘Rock’ had arrived.

Rock Today

Rock music has continued to change and develop from different parts of the world. Today, there are hundreds of types of rock music, and almost every country has its own form of rock. There is “heavy metal’ which is extremely loud with hard rhythms, ‘reggae’ from Jamaica, that combines rock with jazz and Latin rhythms, ‘rap’ that developed on the streets of New York, ‘disco’ a type of soft rock music for dancing, ‘Afro-rock’ that combines rock with African rhythms, ‘Mex-rock’ with combines rock with traditional Mexican melodies… and many, many more.


B) What does it mean? Can you match the words in Box 1 with the words in Box 2?

The early 1950s / lyrics / such as / popular / replace / the mid 1950s / old-fashioned, / combine / mixture / develop


Different things together / grow / 1954, 1955, 1956…/ join together / take the place of something / the words of the sing / for example / out of date / many people like it / 1951, 1952, 1953…

C) Work in pairs. Make notes about the following things. Then tell your partner what the text says.

Student A: The early 1950s, the mid 1950s, the early 1960s.

Student B: The Beatles, the early 1970, Rock music today.


Past Perfect

Do you remember what we use the Past Perfect for? Study these sentences:

1. By the mid 1950s, rock’n’roll had become very popular.

2. By the beginning of the 1960s, rock’n’roll had become old-fashioned.
