Choir Assignment – Writing Exam #2


In order to help develop our writing skills, we will write throughout the year. While using proper grammar, spelling and format, use the following prompt to construct a paragraph. Remember that a paragraph consists of at least 5 sentences (topic sentence, 3 or 4 supporting sentences, and a summary sentence).

Music is sometimes called a universal language because it can communicate thoughts and emotions that are beyond words.

"Music is healing. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone needs music." ~ Billy Joel

PROMPT: Using a life experience, write about your most powerful musical memory and how it shaped who you are today?

It might be when music gave you the most joy or when music helped you through the toughest time. It might be a performance that inspired you or a special song that brings back a cherished memory.

Remember to use musically descriptive terms that tie the music to your personality. You might consider the text, melodic construction, tempo, rhythm or theme.
