PowerPoint Presentation:

Rhythm and Blues, also known as R & B, is one of the most popular genres of music today. One reason for its popularity is the usage of unconventional tempos and beats. This has resulted in an explosion of young artists who want a career in composing this type of music. While many people dream of making R & B beats, this may seem like an overwhelming task to novices. However, with the right software and audio/recording equipment, making R & B beats, or any type of music, is easier than ever before.
