a. The Spiritual
b. The Blues
c. Jazz
i. Swing
ii. Cool
iii. Cool Jazz for example
d. R&B
e. Rap (Hip Hop)
f. Gospel
g. Oratorio
h. Symphony
i. Calypso
j. Mento
Then work on your mechanics/components:
3) What is the rhythm in your specific composition?
4) Describe something about the pitch.
5) Describe something about the melody.
6) Describe something about the harmony.
Finally, aesthetically, what do you think?
7) What are your aesthetic preferences for choosing to write about your example you chose? Now you can make statements subjective viewpoints, i.e., is the harmony (combination of chords or harmonic make up) pleasing?
