For your Week 3 assignment, examine key compositions and composers of the Classical period. This is an opportunity for further analysis of the context in which a work of music is created.

Listen to the Listening Guides: The Classical Period to prepare for this assignment.

Select one composition from the Classical period.

Imagine you have gone to a performance of your selected composition in the year and location it was originally performed. What type of audience are you a part of? Describe your experience and include the following:

  • Description of how melody, harmony, rhythm, and texture are used in the music of the era of your selected work
  • How your experience reflects changes in society and its economy during the Classical period

Submit your assignment as a presentation. You may use a Microsoft® PowerPoint®presentation, a video or another tool with which you are familiar. The presentation should be developed with either 8 to 12 slides or a similar length in another presentation tool.

Include detailed explanations in the Speaker Notes section that correlate to each point if audio is not a part of your assignment.

Cite your sources consistent with APA guidelines.
