From the many topics listed, choose two (one per paper) that were especially meaningful to you. Write profusely about your personal experience with the musical practices you chose, explaining why you chose them, why and how you feel connected to them, and what do you think they mean to the people who practice them. Remember, the important thing about the paper is YOU AND YOUR OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. Enrich your narrative with relevant quotes, sources, and information, but really focus on describing and analyzing your personal experience, striving to make a convincing, strong argument. If you consider it relevant, compare the practices you chose with other musical practices you know and/or participate in. Discuss how and why those practices are important to you and how do you think they compare to the ones we studied in class. The essays should be at least five pages long, doubled spaced, but longer texts are encouraged.
