Two Concert Reports: (25 points each) – 50 pts total Students are required to write two (2) concert reports during the semester, and submit a concert report for each concert. The Victor Valley College Music Department requires concert observance to develop the familiarity with concert periodicals and to provide cultural enrichment for the students. Because of the COVID Pandemic, students may elect to watch 1 concert on Youtube (in the field of Jazz) and write a 2-3 page paper following the concert report guidelines. (See the last page for Concert Report Guidelines).
– If you choose to write a concert report from a concert you view on Youtube, you must post a Youtube link on the top or bottom of your concert report paper in order to receive full credit for the concert report.
-Also, if you choose to see a live concert event for your concert report, you must show proof of concert/attendance by either scanning and sending me a copy of the ticket stub, the program, or a picture of you at the event (selfie with the stage behind you). If I don’t receive this, I am allowed to deduct points from your concert report.
Extra Credit (10 pts) Students that are eligible (based on participation) will qualify for an Extra Credit assignment to help students achieve their desired grade. Extra credit options are as follows:
Write an extra concert report
Music-listening assignment – Listen to music from a Jazz artist, specific genre, or style and write a one-page paper sharing your reflections (I do not want this to be a biography of the artist or a research paper, but truly I only want a reflective paper sharing your reaction to the music).
Perform for the class – Students may share a musical talent with the class (Guitar solo, Sing to a karaoke track, etc.)
Presentation on music topic related to the course of study – 5 slides (max) – students can present and enlighten class on a topic we did not cover in class, or would like to expound on a subject we discussed in class about a specific artist, a subgenre, a specific instrument, etc.
If you have an idea for an extra credit assignment, please confirm with Mr. Welch
A concert report should be an application of musical elements to the program you attend. Although you should mention the concert setting, your focus should be on each piece performed and their musical elements. You should accurately describe all the works on the program using specific terms (rhythm, melody, harmony, form, timber, texture, and dynamics) to receive full credit. Be prepared to arrive on time for the beginning of the concert, and plan to stay for the entire concert.
Use the following outline to guide your report. Write your report in a narrative paragraph style and address each point outlined below. Even though reports are not graded as writing exercises, they should still reflect your abilities in proper writing techniques and show an appropriate academic attitude toward the assignment. You may submit your concert report in person or online. If you submit your report in person, please attach the program as stated above. If you are submitting your report online, please submit it as a PDF with a scanned copy of your entire program.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.Typed, double spaced, 2 to 3 pages in length.
