Project #87492 - College Music course Essay

 

Essay Instructions

Please choose from the following options for ESSAY #2:

OPTION A: Choose a time period with which you are personally familiar (the 1940s, the early 1990s, etc.). Then choose a group with which you were personally familiar during that time period, a group in which music played a part (teenagers, a religious group, a work organization, a political organization, etc. For this assignment, a group is not, for example, The Beatles, or The Monkees, or The Modern Jazz Quartet.). In a 4 ? 5 page essay, explain how that group used music to create, reinforce, or transmit what it considered its defining characteristics. What type of music was important to that group? How was music used by the group? How did the group's music fit ? or not fit ? into the larger society? What does all this say about how the group used music to represent its identity?

OPTION B: Interview a family member, close friend, or co-worker about how music was used to create, reinforce, or transmit identity. For example, you might interview a person who emigrated to the U.S., or you might interview a person who participated in a civil rights demonstration, or you might interview a person who was involved in a political campaign. Ask the same questions: What type of music was important to that group? How was music used by the group? How did the group's music fit ? or not fit ? into the larger society? What does all this say about how the group used music to represent its identity?

This assignment builds upon your earlier work in MODULE 1 by asking you to look at the 'flip side.' While you examined music as an expression of larger culture, within personal experience, in ESSAY #1, in the current ESSAY #2 you are asked to examine how a small group within a larger culture uses music to express itself and create an identity. In ESSAY #1 you were looking at personal identity linked to music; in ESSAY #2 you are looking at group identity linked to music.
