Order Details
This is a documented study of a topic selected by the student which explores a musician or musicians involved in live music-making in the student?s community and residing within the community. A few examples of such musicians are: a local Mariachi group, a local blues band, a local high school madrigal choir, a local drum and bugle corps, a local church choir, a local folksinger, a local Japanese drum group, a local Hindusthani classical music ensemble, etc. The research project is generally described in the text book on pages 365 and 366 as ?A third approach?? and ?A fourth approach?? Please read these pages carefully! (this is our textbook: Jeff Todd Titon et al. Worlds of Music: An Introduction to the Music of the World?s Peoples, Shorter Version/Third Edition.)
Your paper should be written in complete sentences and should describe your subject?s musical style, history, influence, future plans, repertoire and your personal comments. A recording or photograph or other non-verbal documentation is not required. A detailed grading rubric for this project is provided in the Syllabus area.
While an interview or interviews with musicians are expected as the major source of information for this report, a transcript of the interview is not required and is not sufficient for this project. At least one other documented source of information, such as a relevant book, article, or Internet site, is required. Attending a performance or a rehearsal by the subject musicians is highly recommended. (for the interview, you can just make it up since you cannot really go interview someone)
A topic is narrower than a subject (see text p. 369). It needs to be defined fairly clearly to guide you in your investigation and to help you organize your material.
For example, here’s a subject that is too broad: Music in Vietnamese Churches in Stockton. An acceptable topic might be: The Use of Traditional Instruments in a Vietnamese Church in Stockton. Many others are possible, but it’s usually worse to pick a topic that is too broad than one that is too narrow.
Attached is an example provided by professor, please take a look at it. and follow the instructions. please please.
Thank you so much!
