Examine different styles of music found around the world.

Instructions
Goal: The goal of this project is to explore the history, culture, instruments and musical elements of a specific style of non-Western music from one of the world’s local cultures.
Course Objectives:
CO-2: Apply musical terminology, concepts and critical listening skills to a given major composer and style of music.
CO-3: Analyze the social, political, and cultural influences on Western and non-Western music.
CO-4: Examine different styles of music found around the world.
Descriiption:
In this project, you will create an informative PowerPoint presentation featuring the music of a specific non-Western culture. (Note that the term “world music” in the context of this assignment refers to music that is not based in the Western tradition of music. If you are not sure if your chosen topic is a style of non-Western music, contact your instructor, who will provide guidance on your topic selection.) Something to consider when choosing your topic is to make sure it is a style of music that is still in existence and performed, so you will be able to find musical examples and address all of the required elements of the assignment.
The presentation should include the following:
1. A summary of the chosen culture including a short history.
2. A brief explanation of some beliefs and traditions of the culture.
3. Descriiption of the instruments used in that culture’s music.
4. Explanation of the key attributes of the culture’s music, including melody, harmony, timbre, texture, rhythm and form. (If the style of music you choose does not include one or more of these musical elements, then you need to explain why that musical element is not present in the music.)
5. Specific introduction to one piece of music from the culture. Include at least three examples of the music, such as through linking to YouTube performances. Be sure to include a descriiption of one of the musical examples.
Your project should include photos and video (either linked or embedded). Embedded photos and videos need to be cited.
Your choice of world music must be a style of traditional music that is non-Western or not from the Western tradition of music, therefore avoid choosing styles of music from the U.S., Canada, or Europe, including jazz, folk, or any type of pop music (including hip hop). For example, a pop or rock band from Europe or Japan would not be appropriate for this assignment. Celtic or Irish music are also not appropriate styles of music because these are European styles of music. Also, because most students are already familiar with Reggae music, do not choose Reggae for your topic.
Sources must be valid, academic sources (i.e. Please do not use non-academic websites, such as Wikipedia or About.com). Your project should not contain more than 15% direct quotes and direct quotes must be in quotation marks. Direct quotes and paraphrased material must be cited in the body of the text and in a reference section.

What is the relationship between the music and culture that you studied?

THE PAPER YOU NEED TO WRITE NEEDS TO BE IN A SPEECH FORMAT RELATING TO THE PAPER I ATTACHED ON HERE. PLEASE USE THE INFORMATION THERE AND ANY OTHER OTHER INFORMATION NEEDED TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS BELOW! ANSWER ALL 10 QUESTIONS PLEASE AND THANK YOU. THE FOLLOWING TEXT IS A COPY AND PASTE FROM THE PROFESSOR.
MUS310 Oral Research Presentation
Your oral research presentation is where you orally discuss your research paper. Refer to the assignment prompt for some questions to answer in your presentation.
There are multiple options on how to complete the oral presentation; one should be able to see or hear students present, as if one were in class. Some of the options include: 1) video record yourself and post to YouTube as an unlisted link; 2) video record yourself and post/embed the video on Canvas; 3) audio and/or video record yourself and embed into a PowerPoint slide presentation. Many students have used Zoom to record themselves presenting a slide presentation. Presentations should be around 2-5 minutes max, give or take a few minutes.
1.What was your thesis – what did you research, were you trying to prove or demonstrate anything? What types of questions were you looking to answer by doing your research?
2.What is the relationship between the music and culture that you studied? Do people/cultures have an influence on the music or does the music influence culture?
3.How do people within a culture view the music you studied – did it seem like everyone feels the same about the music, as in the music has the same meaning to everyone within the culture? How about people outside of the culture?
4.Did you find any sort of ethical issues with the music and/or culture you studied – or potentially with people outside of the culture?
5.Is the music you studied being borrowed or appropriated by other cultures and if so, what kind of relationships are potentially formed by these cultures? Does it bring cultures together or could there be problems?
6.Can music, specifically the music or any musicians/bands you studied, be used in ways to bring about change in the world? Are there any examples that you came across – whether it’s through performances, festivals, PSAs (Public Service Announcements), music videos, or even actual participation in organizations – that can show how music, musicians, and/or bands impact society (locally, nationally, or globally).
7.Is it possible that the music you studied can play a role in addressing issues that today’s world is facing?
8.What is the possibility that music (musicians and bands) can connect with other industries or disciplines to benefit society? In general, do you think music can be a useful tool in your own industry or discipline and if so, what ideas do you have?
9.If you studied music related to your culture, what did you learn – anything new that you were unaware of? If the music was unrelated to your culture, what piqued your interest in learning about the music and culture and what sort of discoveries did you make?
10.Make some closing statements about your research!

Please submit an abstract that indicates the argument and relevance of the proposed presentation in no more than 300 words.Please check if the abstract answers some of the following questions:How do we assess Ukraine’s place in music history? How can we situate it in broader European and global contexts? What is the role and meaning of a national music history in a context of changing borders, of shifting and hybrid identities? What part do questions of ethnicity, language, and religious denomination play in attempts to portray the music culture of a historically multicultural society? And what is the place of the diaspora in the music history of Ukraine?
Which musical canons have been formed over time, what purposes have they served, and how stable have they been? Given the lingering legacies of imperialism, how can we decolonize the discussion of repertoires previously subsumed into imperial narratives? And how can we do so without slipping into methodological nationalism?
We welcome contributions to these and other matters related to Ukraine, whether in the form of broad historiographical discussions or as detailed case studies. In addition to examinations of musical traditions within Ukraine and the diaspora we are also interested in the musical representations of Ukraine and the reception of musical Ukraine in other cultural traditions.
