#12 John Howatt
#25 Mozart, Piano Sonata in A Major, No. 11 (K.331). (Use the Theme and first Variation only. Note that the first Variation has sounds of Turkish March Music. The first Variation ends when a rumbling bass stops at a cadence. This signals the close of your assigned music selection.)
#14 Beethoven, Symphony No. 5 in C Minor. (Use the beginning section only, this is the first 1 minute, up to the development section. )
For each selection, write a one-page explanation of the selection's rhythmic and melodic features. You may want to use 3 paragraphs: a brief introduction, a paragraph on rhythm, a paragraph on melody. Discuss these elements chronologically, in the order in which they occur in the music, to show that you are hearing change within the musical flow. Use all course-related materials text, audio, and web resources to help you discuss the ways that rhythm and melody contribute to the overall effect of the selection.
If all you do is post your entire assignment, with no evidence of thinking on your part, nothing will happen since no one here will do your work for you.
But if you are specific about what you don't understand about the assignment or exactly what help you need, someone might be able to assist you. Ask specific questions!
