Topic: Choose three scenes from opera, music theatre, or film. (At least two of these three.) How is music used to enhance the narrative?


This is an introduction to writing effectively about music, and in developing an argument (supporting an idea with evidence). The aim is to develop a clear thesis and to support it with examples.

Be sure to reference the scenes (timestamp or some other way of finding it in video, or use bar numbers for music notation).

It should be based on your own thoughts, not a summary of others’. But you can reference others’ ideas, and should do your own research on the work and genre and its history for some factual background. However, your own ideas are needed.

The essay will be marked according to the following criteria:

· Demonstrated understanding of relevant key concepts from the course

· Use of appropriate scholarly literature

· Appropriateness of musical examples

· Clarity of structure

· Clarity and conciseness of writing, appropriate use of academic language, and accuracy and completeness in citation
