No, it just means that the school is open to the public. They are also called state or government schools. A private school is where you pay tuition and have to apply for acceptance.

Yes, and in American media, Public School is usually portrayed as utter hell, and my comment called back to a previous comment of this thread where someone claimed the only rule in their school was to not carry guns, it's called humour, and in England, your private school is called a Public School.

Okay well that seems completely without regard for the definitions of "public" and "private" but who am I to disagree with the English ways?

It came from the times when 'Private Education' referred to those who was home schooled, as only the wealthy could afford tutors, so Public School literally means 'Open to the paying public', like how a religious school would not accept people outside of the faith (schools in England are known for actually checking with the local priest etc and making sure each student regularly attends services), any school that's funded by the government is generally called a State school.

Can they reject your child based on whether or not they are rich? If so, they have the right to discrimination, and thus they are private, like a university.

If they have to accept all students regardless of race, sex, and monetary well-being, they are public, and government funded.

Yeah, if you can't pay for tuition, you can't go, simple as. As I've said, in England, things are different, I live here, and it's Public School, and I'm aware that in America, the term 'Public School' seems to mean that you'll get shot if you show up wearing the wrong 'colours'.

Yeah let's just say that. Coming from someone who wants credit because she plays classical, but doesn't want to give credit to others because she thinks that classical is the origin of music and that it influenced all other music that we listen to nowadays.

If you study this shit, then you're pretty stupid to think so. Clearly each genre has it's own history and it didn't all come/got influenced by or from classical. You speak of classical as if they invented sound, screw you.

User avatar #387 - racalos (05/26/2012) [-]
another way to think of it is "classical to jazz to blues to rock to rap" seeing that rap used to use rock songs as the music part of their rap and as omnomnominator said, classical is also from many other influences. It was basically taking all the good things from the era's before it and making specific rules behind them. If you took any band class or have watched any musician play, no matter what genre, they count off on that 4/4 beat and keep that beat (there is a reason behind head banging). The only real differences in songs/genre are general tempo, instruments, and notes which is what makes up the style. and I know there is a step between classical and jazz but I can't quite remember it but I had to watch a 12 hour long video series on jazz for my marching class and it did indeed state that classical was the start of western music. Which the western world is not always referencing the Americas. If you lived in the classical era the western world was in fact Europe.

Often Rap has hooks, often based around the Major scale, though Minor scales are very common in melodies used in rap, and a steady 4/4 rhythm is kept throughout, all of which would require at least a basic knowledge of music theory, which Classical popularised.

Because every kind of Western music uses music theory, which Classical Music popularised, so they would have heard music that uses that theory and whoever wrote the instrumentals would have had to have a knowledge of theory to make proper, functional, commercial music.

You say you study this shit? You're really wrong there. Not all music is inspired by classical music, you say it as if they invented "beats". Techno is far from classical. How about old tribe music? Using the australian instruments, the spiritual dances and instruments that the native americans used?

that's a load of bullshit.

All western music? What are we talking about here as for western? The native americans were there first, the so called americans were all europeans plus we aren't only talking about western music with influence here. I'm pretty sure that asia had their own kind of music before too that also progressed into something else.

I still haven't seen them credit anyone.

User avatar #387 - racalos (05/26/2012) [-]
another way to think of it is "classical to jazz to blues to rock to rap" seeing that rap used to use rock songs as the music part of their rap and as omnomnominator said, classical is also from many other influences. It was basically taking all the good things from the era's before it and making specific rules behind them. If you took any band class or have watched any musician play, no matter what genre, they count off on that 4/4 beat and keep that beat (there is a reason behind head banging). The only real differences in songs/genre are general tempo, instruments, and notes which is what makes up the style. and I know there is a step between classical and jazz but I can't quite remember it but I had to watch a 12 hour long video series on jazz for my marching class and it did indeed state that classical was the start of western music. Which the western world is not always referencing the Americas. If you lived in the classical era the western world was in fact Europe.

Often Rap has hooks, often based around the Major scale, though Minor scales are very common in melodies used in rap, and a steady 4/4 rhythm is kept throughout, all of which would require at least a basic knowledge of music theory, which Classical popularised.

Yeah let's just say that. Coming from someone who wants credit because she plays classical, but doesn't want to give credit to others because she thinks that classical is the origin of music and that it influenced all other music that we listen to nowadays.

If you study this shit, then you're pretty stupid to think so. Clearly each genre has it's own history and it didn't all come/got influenced by or from classical. You speak of classical as if they invented sound, screw you.

Give credits to the birds and other animals, they are basically the ones who invented music.

Classical music was a natural progression from some of the Medieval music that came before, however, it was quite possibly the first western genre of music to standardise the rules of music, to create what is now known as 'Music theory', so in that sense, classical is the music upon which all western music is based on.
