There are arguments about how to categorize music, but there are some commonly accepted genres:

  • Folk music is usually music created and surviving through local tradition.
  • Western Classical music is artistic music written in Europe or the Western world since the 17th century.
  • Popular music is music made for a large, contemporary audience.
  • World music is usually defined as music which combines different musical traditions.
