Each student, in consultation with the instructor, will choose a musical genre or topic and prepare a class presentation accompanied by a written background paper. If you choose a genre, be specific. Don’t choose a broad genre like rock and roll. Narrow the genre to a very specific area of rock and roll like West Coast Grunge Rock of the 1990’s or Women in Rock. Click here for some genre examples.
How does the repertoire you’ve chosen relate to issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, or other definers of identity? Bear in mind that while lyrics and performance are important, you must address musical issues as well.
