I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out when the Baroque, Classical and Romantic music periods were? I've looked online but there's a lot of conflicting dates of when each period started and ended. Thanks!

Baroque is roughly 1600 - 1750

Classical is roughly 1750 - 1830

Romantic is usually defined as late 1780 - 1910

Of course composers draw on the styles of previous times and there obviously is overlap, for example the "Romantic Classical" style. These are just the general "trendiness" periods.

Thanks! That's really useful

That's because there isn't really a definitive answer. Music styles didn't suddenly change - they gradually evolved. Wikipedia lists these periods, although they too are somewhat arbitrary. There is some overlap between periods:

Baroque: 1600-1750
Classical: 1730-1820
Romantic: 1780-1910
