| Category: Neoclassical

Compare and contrast either the lives or works of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven.

About this Assignment: This question is very general for write my essay. I want you to feel free to include what you find intriguing in this essay. Please keep in mind that I’m not looking for you to fill up the paper, but you do need to include at least 2 or 3 examples to explain EACH POINT you choose to include. Reference the Bach/Handel grid for ideas on what information to include.

How much? You should have at least 3 paragraphs. I’d like to see 3 sentences per paragraph. This is the minimum. The sentences don’t have to be long, but please be sure to verify that you are successfully covering the points you’re trying to make.

What to avoid: Don’t be “wordy”. Some of you were repetitive on your essays. There’s no need to go for a word goal; I’m not going to count and make sure you made it to 300 words, for example. I am however going to check your essay for content.

It doesn’t take much to make your point. It’s about being clear and concise and in making sense with the topic you’re asked to cover.

Resources

There are lots of books in the library that you can use. You must use at least one book! That’s why we’re here! You can however use the internet to find information on these composers. I would prefer you not use Wikipedia, even though that seems to be pretty popular these days. Information there is sometimes not verified and can be inaccurate.
