1. The first task will be to introduce yourself and let me know what your background is in music. Give your name, if you play (or have played) an instrument or sing.
2. Explain why you have decided to take Music Appreciation online, and what two things you would like to get out of this class by the end of the course (besides a good grade).
3. Part One in the book discusses the elements of music, including musical form. Find a song that you like that utilizes binary, ternary, or call and response form. Make sure you indicate the song title, artist, and how the song matches one of those forms.
4. After reading and listening to the examples in the first few chapters, you have hopefully gained a little better understanding of pitch, range, and tone with instruments and voices. Describe the many varieties of musical sounds possible from the human voice. Be sure to consider issues such as range, social function, historical period, and regional styles when constructing your answer.
5. Choose four musical instruments, each instrument representing one of the four families of instruments. Describe the physical appearance and how sound is produced for each instrument, and what the most common use of each instrument is in music.
6. This is an activity question. For 1/2 to 1 hour this week, you are to pay attention and write down the music you hear; watch TV for one show or pay attention to the music at the grocery store when you are there (or something similar). Notice how much music is a part of EVERYTHING we do. Now, after you’ve written down what you heard, provide a detailed summary of what you found out. Do you notice a pattern of aggressive music if you are watching a sporting event (even in the commercials)? Is there a lot of percussion and brass, electronic sounds, or? Was there any pattern at all, or just random? Write about what you heard.
7. In the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church predominated in almost every aspect of life, and the Catholic Mass was an integral part of church activities. Did the Catholic Church, particularly the Mass, have any impact on music? How?
8. Sacred music in the Middle Ages was mostly vocal in nature with little instrumental use, if at all. Was this approach also true of Secular music? Explain your answer.
9. The Renaissance ushered in many changes in art, music, religion, and culture. Many of these elements were blended in very creative ways. How did Renaissance composers achieve a union of words and music?
10. List and explain at least three popular sixteenth century dance types, including the style, common instrumentation, and use in court, society, or both.
11. The Baroque period gave birth to a new musical genre: opera. What are the main dramatic and musical elements of Baroque opera? Be sure to discuss musical, dramatic, and visual elements utilized during this period.
12. Why do audiences in America traditionally rise for the Hallelujah Chorus in Handel’s Messiah? You may not find this in the text, but information is available online. Be specific in historical facts.

I need you to write an essay on the origin and formation of sound archives (not strictly music) and how they can be used, implemented and maintained as modern, digital archives.
For the first part please include a brief technical introduction starting out with Edison’s first recorders, thei commercial succes and availability and how this technology evolved through out the years (from wax recording to vinyl disks to magnetic tapes and then digital disks and finally digital drives etc.). In this summery please include a summery on the work of Béla Bartók’s folk music collecting work.
The second part should introduce the reader to the existing sound archives (a brief historical overview is welcomed), and also the different types of collections – music collections, natural sound collections, commercial sound effect libraries, private collections.
In the third part please describe some examples of how these archives can be mapped and researched with modern tools souch as data visuaization, 3D and possibly AI (i.e. Discovering Musical Structure in Audio Recordings -Music and artificial intelligence: second international conference). If you could include the ecologcal aspect of sound archives that would be great – they can be used to track changes in natural enviroments, animal behaviour and even affect the well being of humans in realtion to the noisyness of their enviroment (noise can cause a lot of health problems)
For closing remarks try to reflect on why it is important to maintain these archives and make it more accasable for the general public.
Not all attachments have to be used.

Picture yourself in a zoom meeting and the professor talked about this two music videos
1) https://youtu.be/QWOEFxd_Et8
2) https://youtu.be/WYRrIBqKsJ4
And now after you have finished the zoom meeting with the professor you need to respond to this
What was taught; What music was played; What you learned that morning – especially what was new to you or clarified so that you now better understand it, and What follow-up reading, listening, or viewing you did after the Zoom Gathering to enhance your understanding of what was covered that day.

M‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍USIC 135 Paper guide. Watch a movie with an original score

M‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍USIC 135 Paper guide. Watch a movie with an original score (soundtracks made only of pop or rap songs don’t often work well, but could work depending on your approach. Animated movies often work well but if it is a Disney musical describe the songs but also describe the underscoring) Tell as much as you can about the music in the film, who wrote the score, who orchestrated the score, musicians credited, who directed the movie, and whether or not any existing songs or pieces were used. Did the composer use any leitmotifs (themes) in the film to represent a person, place, emotion, etc.? In analyzing the score, examine if there is a theme, or themes that are used throughout the film. Were they transformed to fit various scenes and situations? Listen to see if the notes of the theme have been lengthened (augmented), or shortened (diminish‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ed). Has it been fragmented (using little sections of the longer theme)? Does the composer change the way the theme sounds, happy, heroic, tragic, melancholy, or nostalgic to fit what is happening or about to happen on the screen? If so, how does the composer do it? (different instruments, tempo (speed), pitch (high or low), dynamics (loud or soft) use of major or minor, etc.) If they did transform the theme why do you think they did, and if not, why do you think they didn’t. Did you find any interviews that explain the scoring decisions. Compare the scores of two movies that have the same composer. What similarities, and or differences are there? Use some of the guidelines from the previous example. Be sure to cite any websites, articles, or interviews you used to get information. The Paper should be 3-5 pages with any citation page e‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍xtra.

Depending on the question, the length of your answer should be about three nicely developed <
paragraphs written in characteristic academic style. Please make sure that your statements and <
