Analysis of world music | English homework help


Your term assignment consists of a written analysis of a world music example. You may select a music example based on a world culture not covered in class, or you may select a music example from one of the cultures covered in class, but you cannot write an analysis on any of the genres, musicians, or music examples already covered in any of the lessons or the discussion boards.  (If you write on any of the genres, musicians, or music examples already covered in any of the lessons or the discussion boards, you will receive a failing grade for the assignment.  You are also not permitted to analyze a Western classical or popular music example.)
