Paper Topic Assignment
Due: Friday, January 15th
Submit at least two and up to five potential subjects for your papers this semester. Include as much detail as you can. For example, do not simply write “symphonies”. At the very least narrow the subject to a period of music (as discussed in MS 305) even if you cannot, at this point, name the exact piece or composer that you would like to focus on this semester.
Your submission may be handwritten and is due by the beginning of class on Friday.
