This first paper was my program notes project from my Music History II class. We were assigned a piece at the beginning of the semester and we had to research the composer, the piece, and anything that would help in analyzing that piece to form program notes for a general audience.
The following paper was my final project for my Music Theory II class. All semester, I had been analyzing a piece that I was learning for my lessons, which was Eugene Gigout's "Toccata." My paper discusses his use of chromatic chords and the style in which he was writing.
You can also find an audio recording of this piece on my "Performances" tab.
This next paper is my Senior Thesis from high school. I was required to pick a topic in which I was interested, so I chose Psychomusicology, the study of music and the brain. The paper talks about how music and the brain interact with each other at different age levels and includes a wide variety of souces from which my research was based.
