2. Choose one of the two ‘wartime’ compositions covered in this unit: William Grant Still’s Suite for Violin and Piano (1943) or Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring (1945).
3. Place your piece on the timeline, research the genesis of that piece and other related information. Consider the meaning of the piece within the context of America’s involvement in WWII. Then, post your responses to the following:
a. What connections exist between the dates of your piece and the events of the war?
b. What makes this piece a ‘Wartime composition’?
c. What does it reflect about the attitude of the American people during this tumultuous period of world history?

For this assignment you are required to attend a virtual concert online that is live streamed to the audience. You can ‘attend’ any live stream concert of your choice, so it is up to you to do the preliminary research necessary for locating appropriate online events.
While you are watching the concert you should take notes so that you will be able to do the following in your paper:
1) Describe the online environment, including the platform (i.e. Twitch, Zoom, YouTube), the social parameters (i.e. Is chat available? Can audience members see one another?), and other factors (i.e. What is the appearance of the platform? Are you being targeted with ads?).
2) Describe the concert itself including the performers, instruments (if any), and the music, paying special attention to the topics covered in the textbook in chapters 1,2,3,7,9,10,11,12 & 13.
The concert paper should be 500 words in length, formatted with 1-inch margins, 12-point font, double spacing, and paragraph form.
The book in reference is uploaded in pictures and the grading scheme.

For your final paper you are to attend a new virtual concert online and compare

For your final paper you are to attend a new virtual concert online and compare it to the previous virtual concert from your “Concert Paper” assignment.
Your final paper must be 500 words in length not including your bibliography or works cited page. Be sure to use 12 point font, Times New Roman, double spacing, and not more than 1 inch margins.

ASSIGNMENT THREE: SONG ANALYSIS Choose a song to explore and explain from a str

ASSIGNMENT THREE: SONG ANALYSIS
Choose a song to explore and explain from a structural and a social point of view. Working from a
recorded performance, try to describe the sonic structure of what you hear, and the many possible
meanings both internal and external for the singer, poet, songwriter, listener, and you. Pay special
attention to the affect and the greater social meanings of the music. In this assignment we closely
examine the fundamental attributes and features of human music taking the form of song. (“Song” here
implies vocalism, language, message, and often other structural features that we associate with
“music”.) For the purposes of this assignment, you may consider a song to be a kind of amplified speech.
Considering how and why this speech is amplified, by whom and for what listener, is the job of the
ethnomusicologist. Along with structural information, try to be open to the meanings in the song, the
feelings it provokes, and how these resonate inside you and others. Use care in selecting the musical
material. Because of the complexity of the task, students may wish to consider short and simple songs
recorded by you or someone you know. Familiarity with the performer will help you understand the
language, a short song will simplify your timeline, and with no musical accompaniment there is no need
to account for it. Recordings made on the computer or phone are perfect. However, you can choose
something more complex, like a track from a cd or a music video. There is no requirement that you be
the person who records the AV but doing so might have some analytic advantages. In an extended
written discussion (around five pages) present your feelings, observations, analysis, and conclusions
about the song with respect to its structural features and social significance, and especially how those
two features might be related. You may also write about the transcription or recording process, and how
your listening changed over the course of your work. As a class we want a description of Your song, but
we also want to know about songs in general, so you may also compare your song to others that might
be related. Students are encouraged to look closely at the words and the musical (tonal and rhythmic)
structure, and to use neumes, transcriptions, sketches and other visual material to help describe the
structures and meanings that they find. This extra visual material might include (but is not limited to)
timelines, transcriptions of the melody and lyric, chord structure, or phrase contours and structural
information about your song: the tone set, the meter or metric feeling, the song form, transliterations
and translations from the original language, instances of conjunct and disjunct motion, of syllabic and
melismatic lyric settings, of rhetorical and euphonic features of the lyric and instances of vocables
appearing. The more time and care spent on the song description the more considered and cogent your
comments will be. A good analysis might include: A timeline (in minutes and seconds), a transcription of
all the lyrics and vocal sounds, a phrase-by-phrase mapping of the melody contours and the form of the
piece, together with indications for entrances and changes in the accompaniment. It might also include
a mapping of metric stresses in the lyrics, together with other phonetic features such as rhymes, phrase
division and grammatical logic of the lyrics. Ideally, students will be able to account for conjunct and
disjunct motion in the melody, and for lyrics that are syllabically or melissmatically set. Most
appreciated will be efforts to context your song in a larger appreciation of songs in general. With your
essay and visual material, please turn in a recorded copy of your song, or an address where it can be
heard

You need to listen to each song listed and basically explain what you heard in depth. Make sure it is descriptive and
understandable.
IMPORTANT: The purpose of this Listening Journal is to allow you to reflect upon, to write about, and to integrate your developing musical vocabulary into entries as you listen to musical examples representing many style periods of rock music from its precursors in the late 1940s/early 1950s to 1980. Over the course of the semester, your entries should reveal a growth in your ability to communicate about music and to listen more critically to a vast array of musical styles.
UNDER EACH SONG LISTEN AND DESCRIBE IT 1-3 SENTENCES EACH. BE SURE TO MAKE SURE THE SONG YOU’RE LISTENING TO IS BY THE ARTIST LISTED. LEAVE NOTHING BLANK.

PARTS OF THE PAPER:
1. Introduction:
Set the context. Provide general information about the main idea and
explain the situation so the reader can make sense of the topic and the
claims you make and support. Try and state why the main idea is
important. You want the reader to be interested from the beginning.
State your thesis in the introduction. [in regard to power-point
presentation, the overall group introduction is a good place to put a map
of the area or some other image that represents the topic. In your paper
make sure the reader has a basic idea of the culture/geographic area]
2. Main paper
How can I best explain or describe the key concepts I am writing about?
What examples can I use that show that folk songs are important among
the Zulu tribe weddings? Once you start working on this research, you
may notice that your focus has changed, so you can always go back and
change your key concept thesis statement. Maybe you found a lot of
research on love songs, so now your thesis might be: Love songs play an
Important Role in the Marriage Ceremony of Zulu women.
Have 2 or 3 points you want to use to prove your paper thesis, maybe
each one will be 1 or 2 paragraphs. Remember, present a strong point
first, followed by an even stronger one, and finish with your strongest
point. [in regard to power-point presentation, important video, audio,
images go here that support your points. For written paper, you might cite
the video and explain the point verbally.]
Conclusion
Briefly summarize the points you have made. Perhaps mention your
thesis statement again, but re-word it in the conclusion.
References: Cite your Sources!
In your paper, use in-text citations after information that came from that
source, for instance (Smith 2017). Then in the ending Reference list,
include the full citation as follows.
