    Post-Romantic Era

    In this Era, woodwind, string, percussion, brass, and piano sections were common.
    Unlike in previous periods of music, this Era had melodies that were not required to follow any strict pattern.
    Harmony did not follow any preset rules and was often used to give the music character. Dissonance also became common in this timeframe.
    Ternary and Binary music became popular during this timeframe.
    Most of this Era was spent branching away from the Romantic Era of music and creating new compositions.
