Using the two lists below, identify one Western musical choice and one non-Western musical choice. You may also choose your own examples from YouTube as long as you provide a link. The critical thinking checklist will help you gather the evidence to support your assertion that you have chosen a Western or a non-Western musical style/choice. For each piece of music, write at least 1 paragraph that fully explains all of the items on the critical thinking checklist. Critical Thinking Checklist: What year was the song created? Where was the song created? Who is the musician/group of musicians? What instruments were used in the song? What background details can I find about the group/musicians? Is there any cultural or religious significance to the song? What elements of music are present? (for example: Rhythm, Tempo, Pitch and Scale, Melody, Harmony, Dynamics, Tone Color/Timbre) What do I hear? What similarities and differences can I hear between my two choices?
