Title: Recorded/Live Popular Music Concert Report (Essay)
Recorded and live performances are invaluable to the understanding and appreciation of music.
They provide students with an opportunity to see amateur/professional musicians at work, as well
as provide context for class discussions. Each student is required to either attend a live concert or
view a recorded performance of a popular music artist and write a concert report (essay of at least
500 words) that assesses carefully the musical elements of the performance.
The purpose of this assignment is to:
identify and describe the elements of music.
demonstrate listening skills through identification of musical elements within the music.
identify basic musical vocabulary.
experience a recorded or live performance of a “popular music” artist.
Each student is required to either attend a live concert or view a recorded performance (e.g., DVD,
YouTube, etc.) of a popular music artist (e.g., rock, hip hop, salsa, etc.) and write a concert report

Proper citation is required if a recorded performance is selected. Students who opt for a live
performance of a popular music artist must submit a photocopy of the program cover (when
