jazz journal

You will keep a written journal when listening to the Course Music.  Each listening journal should include your own personal observations, thoughts, revelations, and comments on 8 songs of your choice from the Course Music.  A total of 8 songs, starting on the second week, should be included in the journal.  Try to deal with the music in an intelligent, enthusiastic, and open-minded way (NOT simply “I like it” or “I don’t like it”).  Examples are provided in a separate handout, and there will be in-class writing activities that will clarify what is expected here. The journal will consist of at least eight full pages, TYPED and double-spaced. The Journal should include the following: Classic Jazz, Modern Jazz
