    • What is popular music?
      Roy Shuker (2005, pg xiii) states that “popular music encompasses any style of music that has a following. Record sales, concert attendance, numbers of performers, radio and television airplay are all quantifiable indicators of popularity”
      Popular music can be seen as the main commercially produced and marketed musical genres. The emphasis is on traditional rock and pop forms and their various derivative genres such as rap, world music and the various style of dance music. As new technologies and globalisation has taken hold; popular music has changed in the way it is produced and consumed.
    • Audience
      We propose the workshops for 12-20 year olds because:
      • Every child is entitled to a worthwhile musical experience
      • It’s important to discover and encourage musical talents at a young age
      • Our original and unconventional approach gets kids involved who may not usually be interested in music
      • The discovery of talents helps youth find place in community and become culturally mature
    • Audience
      The concert portion of our assembly will be open to all ages because:
      • Music should be provided for the masses not just the privileged few
      • Large concert of variety of genres will help dissipate the idea that there should be separation of genres between young and old, the elite and the many.
      • Introduce both the artists of the current and established musical culture and also youth of today’s musical culture.
      Music fulfills variety of functions:
      • Entertainment
