Now we are going to read the text “What music do you listen to?”
And then you’ll agree or disagree with my statements. If I am right you will repeat my sentence. If I am wrong you will correct it.
"What music do you listen to?"
There are many musical styles. Some of them are popular among the young people. Others are popular with grown-ups. I think we like music because music expresses some ideas which are important for us. That is why different people like different musical styles. For example the music of Mozart. Now it is called classical music. Everyone admires Mozart, both the young and the old. But for his time Mozart was a revolutionary, he reformed the opera and introduced some new ideas. I think young people all over the world like classical music. My favorite classical composer is Mozart. Classical music is international, but every nation has its own music, folk music. The British are very fond of their folk music. They hold special Folk festivals, where young people can learn their national culture and folk music.
There are special musical styles as jazz. I know that jazz appeared as the music of black orchestras in the southern states of the USA at the beginning of the XX century. I like jazz compositions because they are rhythmical. It is easy to dance to them. My parents like jazz too. Still young people like light music, such as pop, rock, rock’n’roll. Some like techno, heavy metal and rap. Most of my friends like dancing music for parties. As for me, I like pop music
, because it is light, and improves my mood when I am gloomy. I like to watch video clips of Philip Kirkorov, Madonna, and Brittney Spears. Their clips are pieces of art. Their songs are melodical and romantic. I respect Madonna and Alsou. I see that they work hard. That is why their songs are so popular. I also like to dance. Pop music is very rhythmical and it is easy to dance to it.
