For this course, you will need to do a concert report on approved video performance from the list below. You must complete a 500-1000 word typed essay describing the music using some of concepts and terms covered in the class (good papers typically have 700+ words).
Guidelines for Writing a Good Concert Report
Include the following:
Describe the instrumentation – instruments and/or voices used in this performance. You should write a short overview of the full concert and then describe specific musical selections in details–you do not need to write about each piece or movement (you can focus on the selections you feel you have more to say) however, from reading your paper, it must be clear that you listened to the full concert. I recommend that you make some notes while listening to the concert and then write the paper consulting your notes. Make sure it is clear from reading your paper what selections you are writing about (write the title or name of the movement). Make sure you mention any aspect that stands out to you.
How would you describe the overall character of each musical selection?–for example: calm, lively, agitated, cheerful, light, somber, etc. What elements in the music make the piece sound this way?–tempo (fast or slow), dynamics (soft or loud), instrumentation (who has the lead?), pitch (major or minor key), or register (high or low sounds). How does the piece or movement evolve through time? (Describe the various changes that you hear)
What qualities make this music appealing to you (or not)?
Support all your comments with a discussion. Be clear and specific. Use correct grammar and mechanics of writing. Make sure you use musical terms correctly.
The concert review is about your description and comments on the music you hear. This is not a research assignment: you don’t need to provide historical information on the composers or pieces. Also, the primary goal is to describe objectively what you hear in the music rather than say whether you like it or not.
This is the checklist I use for grading papers:
Can I tell that the student watched the entire concert?
Is it clear what selection(s) the student is writing about?
-Description of what happens musically
-Correct use of musical terms
-Correlation between musical terms and character of the music
(i.e. “the fast tempo and the bright color of the trumpets made this movement sound very lively”)
-Good structure and correct English
-Descriptions that are detailed and specific. Does the student describe interesting or unusual elements that relate to specific pieces (or movements) in the concert?
Papers must be 500-1000 words in length, double-spaced, and in 12 pt. Times, Times New-Roman, or Arial font.
Write a 500-word review of an album-length recording or a concert-length performance that engages critically with the recording or the performance on various levels. Some of the items included in such reviews include: A description of the circumstances surrounding the performance or of the recording Information on the performers A summary of the pieces included in the performance or on the recording Further information on or description of songwriters/performers or pieces not widely known to a general audience Details regarding particularly positive or negative aspects of the performance or recording A discussion of striking or unusual features of the performance or recording An overall assessment of the performance or recording, possibly including an explicit recommendation for or against purchase of the recording
For this written assignment you will be writing a review that covers music selected from one of the regions covered in Unit 2: Oceania, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.
The music must take the form of one of the following:
An album length (longer than 30 minutes) collection of audio recordings. For example (Links to an external site.)
A live, in-person concert or live audio/video broadcast/stream of a concert featuring music from one of the assigned regions. An in-person concert may be difficult or impossible to find locally.
An audio/video recording of a live concert. This should be longer than 30 minutes. For example (Links to an external site.)
In your review, you should include commentary on the following topics:
Give the name of the concert/album and artist(s) performing, if available. Also include their home region and their specific culture. If this information isn’t available then share any other pertinent information you can find.
Reflect upon and describe the elements of music: form, rhythm, melody, harmony, dynamics, timbre, and phonic structure. Be as specific as possible.
Reflect upon and describe what you liked and did not like in the music. Be mindful of your outsider status and your ethnocentricity.
Provide a YouTube or Spotify link to the recorded music, or a picture of the concert ticket and/or concert program.
I recommend that you carefully read this article; it offers advice for finding high quality world music recordings.
Your completed paper should be 400-600 words.
Only use the powerpoint no research needed, no bibliography or references. Use atleast three examples supporting your conclusions. Paper should include introduction , body and conclusion
There are 4 principal stylistic traditions of Western Christian plainchant: Gregorian, Sarum, Mozarabic, and Ambrosian. This project would explore any of them in depth OR all of them in a comparative study that differentiates their musical features in the context of the locations and cultural traditions in which they arose. The exploration of any of the topic possibilities below (or your own ideas) may also be pedagogically adapted, if you wish, to student/ensemble/classroom use on the level you customarily teach — or to a different level on which you aspire to teach — in any number of ways that respond to the National Core Arts Standards and/or the AP Music skills posted at the bottom of the Syllabus page.
If you prefer to do a pure research project on any aspect of music history/analysis related to your selected musical topic, however, that is fine too!
