As indicated in the course syllabus, you have a project due in this course. It should be submitted to me by the deadline of December 12. Your project should be sent to my email ********* in an attachment.
Project Description: Pick one composer we studied in this course whose works you might consider adding to your personal music collection. 1) Write a brief biography of the composer that includes some facts about him that were not included in the text. (Some things you might want to include: birth and death dates, where he lived and worked, events that influenced his career choice and his writing, any peculiar facts that make him interesting, etc.) 2) Then, using correct musical terminology, describe his compositions. (Some things you might want to include: stylistic period his music belongs to, genres he wrote in, musical characteristics of his work … use the textbook descriptions as a guide for this part.) 3) Finally, tell me why this composer’s works are of interest to you. If you were introducing this music to your friends or family, what would you say to get their interest? Again, make sure you use the musical vocabulary we learned in the course.
Notice that there are three parts to this project: biography, description of compositions, and explanation of why this person’s work is of interest to you. Also note that section 2 is not a list of composition titles; rather, it is a description of several works that should mirror the listening guides found in your text.
You may decide how you want to fulfill this project requirement: you may write a paper (please use Word) or create a PowerPoint presentation. While the quality of your work is more important than the quantity of your words, papers should be about 3 pages in length (or an equivalent length PP presentation). Remember to cite the sources you use in your research (using any standard citation method of your choice). Also, it is very important that you avoid plagiarism; be sure to reword any information you are using, or to use quotation marks and source citations for any passages you quote. Spelling and grammar will be considered when assigning your grade, so use the proofread your work!
Please note: although the last module includes information on some relatively current performers, this assignment is to be done on a COMPOSER. If you have any doubt about the person you have picked, feel free to email me with your choice before doing a lot of research.
