Writing tip for the day 9/18/09

The writing tip for the day is to write a 1 page analysis on one of your favorite songs. People that have music learning styles are able to learn through listening to and analyzing music. This writing tip will explore the influence of music.

Why should you listen to music? Most people listen to music for entertainment purposes while others focus on the theme within a song. Have you ever noticed that most songs have a story? People can learn from music because it has a direct message.

Bon Jovi's Living on a Prayer highlights the struggles in life, and how having faith will help people make it through the tough times. Listen to a song; write a 1 page analysis reflecting on the music. How do connect with it?

A music learning style is valuable because the mind uses music to process the meaning of various music. Try to find a connection between the music and your life. Every individual will write something different due to their obstacles and challenges.

Before, I used to focus on the music - the instrumental and the words. Now when I listen to music, I look for a direct theme. You'll find it easy to write a 1 page analysis to a song. Even if the music just has instrumental melodies only, the music is still trying to convey a specific theme. Thank you for reading the writing tip for the day.

Have fun taking part in the 1 page music writing activity.
