C. Music History
The student will choose one famous composer from the pieces we have studied and performed throughout the semester. Another composer may be selected, but all research for that composer would have to be done outside of class on the students time. If a composer is chosen from class no additional research is necessary.
You are the last remaining relative of (insert famous composer here). The composer has just died an untimely death. It is your duty to write the composers obituary. It is important to mention at least three of the composers major works, birth place, the date of birth and death, age of death, historical period, style of music, contribution to the music world, and how their music has impacted your own life.
