These songs represent some of the variety of my tastes. I think one thing that unites many of them is a strong sense of melody and rhythm combined with virtuosity. I love improvised music and re-workings of pop tunes in other genres. As a sax player, I’m drawn to great horn sections. Down near the bottom of the list, you’ll find a few drum and bugle corps videos from a classic era of my favorite corps, the Blue Devils.

- Create a blog post on your ePortfolio. Write 500 words about the role of music in your life. Consider a few of these questions to get you started:
- Which musicians, bands, or songs do you listen to regularly?
- Which musicians, bands, or songs mean the most to you? Why do they matter to you?
- Which songs/lyrics inspire you?
- Which musicians, bands, or songs do you have negative feelings about? Why?
- Are there any musicians, bands, or songs you absolutely won’t listen to? Why?
- What don’t older people understand about the music you like?
- Using Spotify or YouTube, make a playlist of at least 5 songs that you think I should listen to. Write a 150-200 word introduction to the playlist. Post a link to your playlist and your introduction onto a new blog post on your ePortfolio.
- Identify the purpose/function of the paragraph or section you’re commenting on.
- Evaluate it from the point of view of a reader. Is it the right function for that moment in the piece of writing? Does it fulfill the purpose or function well? Could a reader fully understand what the writer is trying to say without further assistance? Use the following ratings: EX | G | OK | NTG.
- Make specific suggestions on how to improve the paragraph or segment.
- Engage the ideas of the paragraph or segment by helping the writer think more about it: play devil’s advocate, help them see implications, suggest supporting, complicating or contradicting evidence that they should consider.
- Write an end note in which you help the writer prioritize revisions to make.
Don’t comment on grammar, spelling, or punctuation.
