Take detailed notes as you view the concert to gather data for your report. (See “Attending a concert (Links to an external site.)
” for more information)
Your notes should concentrate on musical events that you heard in each piece
The more detail you can provide, the better your grade will be!
Focus on how the elements of music were used
Trace how particular elements — such as tempo, texture, dynamics, instruments, important themes — evolved over the course of the composition
Try to make an outline or rough draft soon after the concert while things are still fresh in your mind
