High priority articles
Read, before making changes. The articles with the highest priority are listed at CZ:Core Articles/Arts#Music - Stage 3. The articles in that list, with the highest priority will contribute the most points to your name.
The genre's, instruments, composers and musicians in this music workgroup list are more general, expansive and diverse and should give you, the editors and authors; an overview of what needs to be done and what could be done in the long run. It should also be about listing it's musical concept logically and organically with a well worked out hierarchy where smaller concept are placed under a much bigger umbrella.
Genres, locations, and periods
Composers and musicians
Important to cover not only life and reception but also musical style and important points of development.
In addition to range, materials, etc., important to cover history and repertoire. This is just a partial list--just about every instrument is high priority
- String instrument
- Brass instrument
- Woodwind instrument
Other music topics
- Music -- actually not so important; the Grove dictionary of music avoided defining until the 2001 edition. Nice to have though, and very hard to write.
- Music technology
- Music and text -- or something like this (perhaps Lyric?)
- History of music
- Music theory
These aren't "Top Priority" articles, but represent the interests of authors and editors of Citizendium. They are featured in the sense that they are likely to become important Internet resources on the topic.
