Essay from the year 2017 in the subject Musicology, grade: High Distinction, Griffith University (Queensland Conservatorium of Music), course: Bachelor of Music, language: English, abstract: The popular music genre is extremely diverse and has roots in the late 1890s but it was not until the 1920s until the term had gained currency. It is not simply a genre but is an important means of documenting the evolution of society through the decades and is at the mercy of its audience. Therefore, when analysing popular music, it is essential to study it from a broad perspective and take into consideration the environment in which it was written. Shruker elaborates on this by stating, 'The study of popular music embraces aesthetics and musicology, economics and sociology, and social psychology'. These factors are explored in this essay to trace the changing socio-cultural trends across the decades and their effects on musical style. The example of 'Can't Help Falling in Love' by Elvis Presley is employed to achieve this objective, as well as two cover versions by English Reggae and pop band UB40 and Swedish pop group A-Teens. A detailed musical deconstruction of each song will be provided with an overview of the structure, lyrics, instruments and stylistic indictors, which place the song in its era. Furthermore, an in-depth exploration of the relevant era in which the song was written and recorded will be provided, including a brief background of the performer with regards to his appearance, presentation and promotional material. Ultimately, this essay will prove popular music to be a product of its socio-cultural environment.

Kassidy-Rose McMahon is an up and coming composer, from rural Charters Towers in North Queensland. She embarked on her musical journey at age 12, when she discovered her underlying aptitude for piano. Her growing passion for music led to her to study music theory under her high school music teacher at Charters Towers State High School. This inspired a love for composing and arranging music. Aside from piano, Kassidy-Rose adopted a range of new instruments throughout high school including mallet percussion, drumkit, flute, saxophone, and bass guitar. Since commencing employment at Wellers Hill State School in 2017 as the piano accompanist for three string orchestras, she was transformed into an avid violist. This growth is credited greatly to the strings teacher of Wellers Hill State School, Miss Josephine Price. In 2017, Kassidy-Rose undertook a Bachelor of Music at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University, as a classical piano performance major. Throughout her tertiary studies, she worked closely with the choir of Holland Park State High School under the direction of Miss Jacqueline Duckworth and Music Extension students taught by Mr Raymond Cosgrove. She also volunteered her time to helping out with the Wind Ensemble rehearsals at Mount Gravatt State High School, led by Mr Matthew Fellows. Kassidy-Rose aspires to work in the music education industry and plans to delve into the world of music research in the near future. She attributes her success to her mother, friends, conservatorium staff, and teachers who she has received tremendous support from throughout her career.
