I have to write a essay about any topic I want for my grade 10 english class so I'm writing it about music. Tell me what you think so far.

What is music? Like all forms of art music is about expression. Taking the artists feellings and imagantion and prodjecting it into song. The messages that are found in music have the power to change minds. Whether the message be positive or negative music has the ability to influence anybody who takes the time to listen...

All I got so far any ideas. thanks.

Talk about how it's sometimes a diary for some artists.

The progression of their songs overtimes reveals a little bit into their mindset, like a Syd Barrett.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

Whatt is music? Like all forms of art, music is about expression. Taking the artists feelings and imagination and projecting it into song. The messages that are found in music have the power to change minds. Whether the message be positive or negative, music has the ability to influence anybody who takes the time to listen...


Fixed, at least spelling grammar wise.

i find that when writing an essay, simply choosing a topic and trying to write from the intro to the conclusion is inefficient.

I suggest finding a question or a conflict that you or someone else may have and forming a thesis from this question. then build your essay from here.

for instance: (in regards to music) How is the music that made up the rock n' roll generation of the 50's and the early 60's different (easy) and similar (not so easy) to the music of today's generation.

then you would make a thesis out of that. anyways, good luck.


EDIT: your thesis SHOULD NOT be in the form of a question. You're supposed to take a question or conflict and answer it/pick a side. this becomes your thesis.

Ex. The music that made up the rock n' roll generation of the 50's and early 60's is similar to today's music in such and such ways.

Don't open with a question. Makes you look like you don't know your writing voice from your speaking voice. Your topic is too broad as well.

I would start with a specific genre and form something around that, like how punk has changed from the 80's(not sure when punk started, just an example) to present time, something like that.
#11
Don't start with a question. And try to narrow it down, perhaps more to what music is specifically to you .

yea, your theses should be an statement that you are going to try to prove throughout the essay

Edit: Your lack of grammar skills made me think you were using the term 'art music'.

Music is the expression of feelings. These feelings are combined in order to create a song.

That's how I see it anyway.

Well, music is.....


....There are Jews in the world, there are Buddhists,
There are Hindus and Mormons and then,
There are those that follow Mohammed,
But!... I've never been one of them!!!!!

I'm a Roman Catholic, and have been since the day I was born,
And the one thing they say about Catholics,
Is they'll take you as soon as you're warm!!!!

You don't have to be a six-footer,
You don't have to have a great brain,
You don't have to have any clothes on -
You're a Catholic the moment dad came!!!!

because...

Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great,
If a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate!!!!!!!!
life is beautifuuuuooooaaaaaal

You need to learn where to put ","'s into your sentences. As well, never start off a sentence with a question. Your use of the question is to bring up the topic, but of course, the topic will already be displayed in the title, or in the first paragraph. You never start off with a question. Also, try your hardest to avoid asking questions. People don't want to hear you ask questions, people want you to just tell them.
