The science behind soundwaves
Soundwaves are generated when a material object vibrates, which can be created by any object or body that has particles in it (which is every material thing on Earth).
As objects vibrate, they create ripples in whatever medium they’re placed in. The strength of a soundwave depends on how quickly an object is moving and how close it is to our ears.
Types of music and their genres
There are many different types of music, from rock and classical, to rap and country. Each type of music has its own genre. Genres are subcategories that help describe a kind of music by categorizing it by similar instruments, lyrics or rhythms.
For example, under rock you’ll find hard rock and metal; pop rock is also a form of rock. Examples of country include honky-tonk and outlaw; folk is also another country-related type of music.
