In this project, you will create an informative PowerPoint (PP) featuring the music of a specific non-Western culture. (Note that the term “world music” in the context of this assignment refers to music that is not based in the Western tradition of music. If you are not sure if your chosen topic is a style of non-Western music, contact your instructor, who will provide guidance on your topic selection.)
Something to consider when choosing your topic is to make sure it is a style of music that is still in existence and performed, so you will be able to find musical examples and address all of the required elements of the assignment.
The PP should include the following:
1. A summary of the chosen culture including a short history.
2. A brief explanation of some beliefs and traditions of the culture.
3. Description of the instruments used in that culture’s music.
4. Explanation of the key attributes of the culture’s music, including melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre, texture, and form. (If the style of music you choose does not include one or more of these musical elements, then you need to explain why that musical element is not present in the music.)
5. Specific introduction to one piece of music from the culture. Include at least three examples of the music, such as through linking to YouTube performances. Be sure to include a description of one of the musical examples.
The PP should include photos and video (either linked or embedded). Embedded photos and videos need to be cited.
The choice of world music must be a style of traditional music that is non-Western or not from the Western tradition of music. Do not choose styles of music from the U.S., Canada, or Europe, including jazz, folk, or any type of pop music (including hip hop).
Sources must be valid, academic sources. Do not use non-academic sources such as Wikipedia or About.com.
The PP should not contain more than 15% direct quotes and direct quotes must be in quotation marks. Direct quotes and paraphrased material must be cited in the body of the text and in a source list at the end.
Note Well: A source list at the end is a requirement.
A summary of the chosen culture including a short history is present.
An explanation of some of the beliefs and traditions of the culture is given.
More than a few instruments are given descriptions, including looks, sounds, methods of playing.
The 6 basics of music are discussed in relation to the culture’s music. This can be combined with the specific introduction to one piece of music.
One piece of music is directly introduced and described.
A link to the video is given and is properly cited, both in-text and reference page.
Many more than a few photos are included.
At least 3 videos are included.
Sources are valid and academic; quotes are in quotation marks and are not more than 15% of text; quotes and paraphrases are cited in-text and in a reference page in MLA style.
