One of this course’s requirements is the completion of a Composer Report. A list of composers follows Worksheet 8.4 in the textbook. Select one of the names from the list, conduct research into that person, and write up your findings. You may find something new if you explore a name from the list that you do not recognize.
Research: Open submission websites, such as Wikipedia, may be good for quick info but they often fail to meet the needs of academic researchers; it is far too easy for inaccurate information to be submitted to these sites by non-experts. Better are peerreviewed publications. These are usually found in libraries or in subscription-based websites. For this report, one of the best sources may be the Grove’s Encyclopedia of Music, also known as Oxford Music Online. You will find this resource listed among the university library’s online databases. Be sure to document (footnote) your sources.
: The Composer Report should be a minimum of three pages in length (1″ margins on all edges, 12 point type, double spaced). Research the topic, think about it, then organize and write a report in your own words. DO NOT COPY AND PASTE ANYTHING FROM SOMEONE ELSE’S WRITING, INCLUDING FROM WEBSITES. Make your report interesting; long lists of compositions can be boring. Make your composer come alive. Make him or her a real person whom you and others might like to meet.
