Within the broad movement of new-age music, neoclassical new-age music, or instrumental pop, is influenced by and sometimes also based upon early, baroque[clarification needed] or classical music, especially in terms of melody and composition.[clarification needed] The artist may offer a modern arrangement of a work by an established composer or combine elements from classical styles with modern elements[vague] to produce original compositions. Many artists within this subgenre are classically trained musicians. Although there is a wide variety of individual styles, neoclassical new-age music is generally melodic, harmonic, and instrumental, using both traditional musical instruments as well as electronic instruments.
