Listen to the entire interview

Respond to the following prompts:
<
Do you remember any of the cartoons mentioned? If so, explain which ones and what your experiences of these cartoons and the music were.
<
Whose “Ave Maria” is mentioned in the interview? Have you heard this piece before? What are your reactions to this piece?
<
Do you think children today experience classical music as much as people in your generation did?
<
Do you think exposing children to a wide variety of music is important? Why?
<
What is your prior experience playing, reading, and listening to music?
<
What is your favorite type of music? Why? What draws you to this genre?
<
<

All answers should be written in proper formal style. This means that responses should be written in complete sentences with no spelling or grammatical errors. Try to expand on your ideas as much as possible — one-word responses are never acceptable.
<
<
Please create your response in a Word document file that you will submit under the Assignments tab. It needs to be at least 1 page, double-spaced, 12-point font. Do not list your name, class title, date, etc. on the paper in the corners nor list the questions again in your final submission. <
<
You can either write your answers in essay format with each question being a new paragraph, or you can number them and answer accordingly.

This example is obviously for Writing Assignment 1 [WA1], so change the number accordingly in subsequent assignments. The example is also for a recent version of Word that saves with a .docx file extension — .doc extensions from older versions of Word are fine too. .pdf extensions are acceptable as well, but please do not submit .odt or .rtf files — your word processing program should allow you to save as a .pdf. <
<
Do NOT use symbols (#,&,@, etc.) when creating filenames — this often makes files harder to open (and this applies in work settings as well; stick to letters, numbers, and spaces only).
<
<
Please address all of the prompts in your response. Any response that requires your opinion on the music should be extensive; this is always the most important aspect of the assignment. Do not settle for a simple, surface-level answer; music is complex as are human feelings and reactions to it. You must work to articulate your ideas and opinions clearly and completely. You will not be graded based on your opinions — you will be graded based on your ability to communicate your ideas.

Do not cut and paste any of your answer from another source. Plagiarism includes any copying of the words, structure, or ideas of another author without clear citation of that source. If you use the ideas of another author, put these in your own words.
