Question description

Select a song. 

1. Select a musical instrument to explore through research. For example if you select a guitar conduct some research on the guitar as an instrument so that you can discuss its origin, age, diversity of use. You are ask to understand the fundamental structure of your instrument so that you can analyze the tones and sounds it produced for this assignment. 

2. Identify a musical composition that features the instrument you have selected. This does not mean that the music is performed only by one instrumentalist. It means that the instrument you selected must be one of the primary instrument in the selection.

3. You must know the composer of the music you have selected. Find a brief profile of the composer, enough information to give you an introduction to that artist, and to enable you to provide a short profile of the artist and more importantly what their relationship is to the music.

Prepare a 3 pages response that discusses your selected instrument and the composition you have chosen. Explain why you have chosen the instrument to study and the composition to listen to.  What have you learned about your instrument through focused listening to your music selection? 

Please explain the composition in terms of the elements of music.  Describe your selection through the correct terms such as tone, rhythm, if the tempo is set by the instrument, what types of sounds it produces...

Feel free to write about any type of music you wish, but make sure you have identified one specific song to analyze as the basis for this assignment. Be sure to include the title of the song, the composer and the musician if they are different from the composer.
