About This Quiz

The earliest record of music dated as far back as 510 B.C when archaeologists found paintings and artifacts of people playing musical instruments, but it wasn't until the 13th century that the word  "music" (derived from the French word musique) was associated with the art form. From its inception, it was a form of entertainment which people could relate to. 

Music has been divided into an ever-growing list of genres like hip-hop, jazz, rap, pop, classical, rock and country, some of which have their own sub-genres and some of which are a fusion of two larger genres. This art form has also brought us some of the world's greatest singers and composers, including names such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, The Beetles, Johnny Cash, Luciano Pavarotti and Beyonce.
