AIM & PURPOSE OF SLIDESHOWThe purpose of this slideshow is to present three ideas of music genres and then present them to my peers and take into account the feedback I get.The main purpose of this slideshow is to gain peer feedback of my ideas so I can then decide which music genre I am going to base my music magazine around.This will then enable me to base my music magazine around my the feedback of what my target audience wan because my magazine is for them.

PEER FEEDBACK Most people liked my idea of drum&bass genre for my magazine, Here are some things people said about my drum&bass idea… “different” “colour scheme works well” “I like the big tracks of the year idea”Based on this feedback I decided to go for this idea seeing as my peers liked it the most, however they did say that I would have to change the target audience (17-25) as this is more appealing to more people. I also came up with the idea that I could have one page based for boys and one page said for girls or American vs. British music with different colour scheme.
FINAL DECISION So overall I have decided to choose Drum&Bass for my magazine, this isappropriate as this is what my peers liked the best and my magazine will be for them so it has to appeal to them. I think this idea will be the most effective because its quite different so therefore there is a gap in the market for this idea. I also think the idea of doing American vs. British music on my double page spread will be a good idea because its unique and may attract a lot of people, and I could also change the colour scheme for each page to make it stand out more, this was an idea that was pointed out to me by a peer so therefore I will think about this so I can attract my audience. However I amgoing to think this through some more based on my target audience because I need to make I appeal to them, and I will also think through some of the ideas that they suggested.
