Since you are writing your own songs, it only seems right to talk about the history of music. Today, we will take a look at a few influential artists that have shaped music in the 20th century. We will also trace some of the changes in music from the 1930s to today.

- how does music reflect its time?
- how/why does music seem to push boundaries?
