9780136157786: Writing About Music: An Introductory Guide

For classes in Music Writing and Research, as well as a supplement to Music Appreciation and History courses.

 

How do you put into the words the experience of hearing Beethoven’s Ninth or the Hallelujah Chorus?  Describe a John Coltrane solo or the Jimi Hendrix’s blazing guitar work?  For many students, the task of writing about musical experiences is a daunting one.  Writing About Music, 4/e offers practical advice and guidance to help students master the special skills needed to write about this most-elusive of arts.  The text serves as a guide for each phase in the process of researching and writing a paper on a musical topic, and preparing for other projects such as seminar presentations, concert reports, program notes and essay examinations.  Innovative, comprehensive, and internet-savvy, this step-by-step text will remain on music students’ shelves as a handy reference and resource for years to come.

From the Back Cover:

This guidebook provides practical and specific assistance to undergraduate students about writing research papers and other types of projects in the field of music. It also offers practical help in writing effective prose on any topic and ways to improve one's writing style.

The Third Edition has been extensively revised and rewritten. The organization of the material has been changed in order to present issues in a more logical order. There are expanded sections on new approaches to musicological research, electronic resources for research, and how to use word processing programs to draft and edit a paper. The section on format issues has been revised and expanded to make the detailed information it offers clearer and more useful. Finally, a new sample student paper has been included in the Appendix, along with discussion questions designed to help students analyze the paper, read more critically, and understand better the process of researching a topic, designing a paper, and arguing a thesis persuasively.
