a review of the background music of a motion picture of your choice which you will view sometime after the first day of class.
I. Assignment: You are to write a review of the background music of a motion picture of
your choice which you will view sometime after the first day of class. The movie must
have been viewed after the first day of classes. In other words, you must have these
guidelines in mind when viewing the movie.
II. Grading: The grade for the report will be based on clarity, grammar, punctuation,
style, the ability to write about music using appropriate terms, and completeness.
Standard written English should be used for the report.
III. Objective: The purpose of the report is for you to watch a movie in a way that may
be new to you—focusing on the music soundtrack rather than on elements of plot,
scenery, and action—and to write a brief review of the role of the music in the movie.
