How many different types of music are there?

Answer

In the broadest sense, music can be divided into three types: art, popular and traditional. These three main types of music are separated into many subgenres, and there are many overlaps.

Art music refers to classical, both contemporary and historical. Classical music is found in many parts of the world, including Europe and Asia. Art music is usually formal, is often written down and lends itself to focused listening.

Popular music is accessible to the public and is usually distributed by the popular mass media such as radio and television stations, retailers and the Internet.

Traditional music, also known as folk music, is typically handed down through the generations in oral form and is particular to certain areas, regions and cultures of the world.

According to Furia, a website that has developed a scan list of music, there are at least 1,188 genres of music in the world.
