Listening Journal

First listening journal assignment is to write a three to five page paper on a musical work of your choice related to Gateways 1 through 16 in your course textbook. Your paper should provide a musical analysis of your chosen piece using the established parameters designated in our course textbook and implemented in our class discussions. I have provided a list of recommended topics and works that have been drawn from the categories of Gateways 1 through 16. You may select a work from this list or you may investigate a work from one of these categories that you discover. Please do not write about a musical work that is one of the gateway pieces (as the analysis has already been completed). Please keep in mind that this assignment provides you with the opportunity to explore music from one of the gateways that we did not study in class.
