part 3: Comparing and Contrasting Music

First, review your work on:

  • Learning about Music
  • Identifying the Characteristics of Ragtime Music  — you will need to find, use, and cite at least one reliable source about the characteristics of Ragtime Music for this project.(you might use a source from this assignment.)
  • Identifying the Characteristics of Big Band Era Music — you will need to find, use, and cite at least one reliable source about the characteristics of Big Band Era Music for this project (you might use a source from this assignment.)

Then, select one piece of Ragtime Music and one piece of Big Band Era Music and examine them, focusing on their relations/ connections to their eras. 

  • DO NOT select a piece that has appeared or been used in the earlier assignments

Then, you’ll examine them, focusing on their relations/ connections to their eras. 

  • Be sure to choose pieces that fall within the era (the years are in the title of the Identifying assignments.)

When you are ready, compare and contrast your two works as examples of Music. Your comparison/contrast will need to be at least 300-words long and will need to cite and use at least one reliable, academic source about the characteristics of EACH of the eras (two sources minimum)

  • Be sure that your sources are ABOUT the works or eras — you don’t just want a source that shows where you found your work.
  • Be sure to discuss the unique and important elements of the eras exhibited by your pieces in your comparison/contrast.– this is where you will use your sources to establish the characteristics of the humanity in the era
  • Be sure that this work is your own — do not include long quotations from your source and do not use any information or material without correctly citing it.
  • I’d suggest discussing each work and its era first and then moving your focus to comparing and contrasting the two works.
