Music and World Cultures

Student were given five options for research project in World Civilizations II. The projects below fall into the fourth option.

Option #4:

Can you compose/ write a short piece of music that will tell a story or spark interest in other cultures?

The students came to some interesting conclusions: in short, they found that music plays a role in separating people as well as in bringing them together. The first two projects demonstrate the power of music in forging national identities and military spirit; the second two show how music can enrich us all by borrowing across cultural lines.
