Write reflective journal for music


I have written 4 listening assignments, you can use it as reference. I can send you what I have learned later.Keep a journal throughout this course about what you are learning. Summarize it into a 10- to 15-page document at the end of the course and submit it through the Canvas assignment dropbox.Essentially, this journal could just be your notes from the units, rewritten in paragraph form (however, that alone would not get a great mark). Or, you could describe the extra listening you undertook as a result of the music or the ideas presented in those units (such a journal would most likely achieve a much higher mark). As well as factual material (names of composers, dates of pieces, influences), I am interested in personal comments—which composers did you find interesting? Which pieces, if any, excited you? Most importantly, demonstrate that you understand the musical relationships involved.You do not have to discuss every study unit in your journal: in fact, that would take too much time and space. Instead, concentrate your writing on a few specifics of the course. One of the best journals I received spent the entire 15 pages berating me for not choosing more examples by women composers, and discussing some women not listened to in the course.The best way to prepare for this assignment is to make good notes while reading the individual units, particularly during the musical (listening) examples. Write down a sentence or two about each piece that you are asked to listen to in the unit. This will make it a lot easier to talk about different composers and pieces later on.

Subject is Music appreciation


Concert review Prep paper on “sing sing,sing” by Benny Goodman, performed by The Jazz Ambassadors(US Army Band). 400-600 words demonstrate critical thinking and evidence of the application. areas to describe are performers(shortest) context of the performers, music description( the longest part) and writer’s opinion including personal reactions to the experience( substantial part)

research of world music subject


write a 5-page (double-spaced, standard tabs) research paper about a musical culture NOT covered in this course. Areas covered in this course include Indonesia, Japan, Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, so you can choose any part of the world OTHER than these. Some areas to consider are: Native America, Polynesia, Australia, China, Korea, India, Ireland, Portugal, Greece, Caribbean, Arctic Circle…. wherever, as long as it’s not covered in our course.For this assignment, please use Nettl’s 3-part model, addressed in “Unit 1: Introduction” and Chapter 1 in our textbook. Focus on the Sounds, Behaviors and Ideas or Conceptions that govern the sounds and behaviors of the musical genre/activity you choose. It’s best if you stick to a specific genre or ensemble from whatever region you choose for this research paper. For example, if you wanted to write about music from Spain, don’t try to summarize all Spanish music (too broad, too big) but pick a specific genre or activity to focus on, such as Flamenco. Want to research Hawaiian music? Stick to hula or string bands. The point is, focus on one genre or activity from a region and give in-depth details, not just a broad, surface cultural overview.Sound:What sounds are you hearing? Talk about the instruments (and voices) of the musical genre/activity. What are they made of and what do they sound like? Are there any rules or restrictions surrounding these instruments, like who can play or when one can play? Can you comment on the texture and form of the music? Texture refers to layers of activity. How many musicians are present and how do they relate to one another? Form refers to how the music is organized and presented,. How long does a performance last and how are the melodies and rhythms arranged. Lastly, what does the music sound like to you, the outsider?Behaviors:What activities are associated with this musical genre/activity? What are people doing while this musical activity is happening? Is there a specific purpose or function surrounding this music, or is it just for enjoyment/entertainment? Does this musical activity have any behavioral restrictions regarding religion, age or gender? Is everyone participating communally or are the musicians/singers/dancers presenting music to an audience…. why? Lastly, can you draw any connections to musical behaviors in your life or culture?Ideas/Conceptions:What ideas or conceptions govern the sounds and behaviors of your chosen musical genre/activity? Why are people creating this music and why are people participating? Address ideas surrounding history, culture and musical evolution. Most musical genres throughout the world express indigenous and foreign, or outsider aspects. What traits are uniquely regional, or indigenous, and what traits are coming from an outside influence and why? Again, almost all music has a combination of both! How have politics, religion or human migration affected this musical genre/activity? Lastly, can you relate what you learned to your own life experiences?

Music 3-Intro to music Discussion


In this assignment, you’ll use a comparison exercise to practice listening closely to music, with special focus on timbre and the voice.Instructions:1. Choose a song you are already familiar with, and that features a singer. Any style of music is fine, as long as it has one main singer (rap is also fine).2. Review this Spotify playlist (Links to an external site.)and pick ONE track to use for this comparison exercise. If you prefer to use two from this list instead of one of your own, that is also fine.3. Listen carefully to both tracks several times, with special attention to the timbre of the voices.For each song, consider these questions: How would you describe the qualities of each vocalist’s sound? Does the vocal quality change over the track or is it consistent? How does each vocalist’s sound relate to the feeling or message of the song? How does it relate to the other sounds and timbres used in the song (instruments or electronics)? The point is to focus on the vocal timbre of each track, and think about what it has to do with your own experience of the song overall.4. Compose a response of roughly two paragraphs addressing those questions and comparing the way vocal timbre is used in each song. Length is not a substitute for quality; revise your writing for clarity and concision, as well as grammar and spelling. At the top of your post, please list the 2 songs you used, and a link to your own.5. Comment on posts by at least TWO other students in your group, by Sunday 11:59pm.We recognize that writing about music is challenging, but you will do well on this assignment as long as your response reflects careful listening and thoughtful consideration of the questions above. Enjoy listening!
