Trying to explain to a student of mine that difference between sound and style when it comes to music. Can someone give me a few examples?

On it's face this seems easy. There are lots of sounds in the world, few of them arise to be called "music." In that latter class, music is most often a lyrical and pleasing grouping of sounds.
That said, music is broken down into subsets of Classical, Opera, Country, Pop, Rock, Jazz, etc.... each with it's own particular and often unique style.
Here tho is the rub. In colloquial, the two words often get interchanged - not necessarily inappropriately.
"Man listen to that jazz band - baby I love that sound!" (really means style)
Hope this helps (?)

One might consider using the difference between volume or loudness and arrangement to make this point.
