Fairview DInner-View Project

“Dinner-View” for Music Class: There are two parts
1. You interview the oldest person you know.
2. You research your favorite band, group or artist.
3. Will be presented in class and details are listed below:

• Your first assignment will be to interview the oldest ADULT member of your family, or a close family friend over the age of 40 years old. about their favorite musical group, singer or band. 
• There are a few required questions that you will need to ask and then you also need to come up with a few questions for the interview on your own.  Think outside the box and be creative for the assignment.  You can create a poster, write a written report or create a video or…….. ???? (amaze me!)
• You will also need to have 2 musical examples of the chosen group/musician.  Example 1 will be the person you chose to interviews favorite song and the 2nd example will be your favorite song.
• You will present your “Dinner-View” to the class.  Finally you will be required to do the “Dinner-View” during a sit down dinner at the table.  If by chance the person you choose to interview works night shift you are more than welcome to do the interview during breakfast or lunch, but I prefer to have you do this assignment during a nice calm sit down dinner, at a dining room table.  Too often we get caught up in being too busy to sit down for dinner together.  Family dinners are a great way to share stories and enjoy some well deserved family time.  Have fun with this assignment.  I am excited to see what you produce for your project. Below are the questions for you:

1. Who are you interviewing?
2. Why did you choose this person?
3. What time did you have dinner and what day did the “dinner-view” occur?
Time: __________   Day:__________
4. What did you have to eat for dinner?
5. Who is your favorite musical group, band or singer? 
6. Why are they your favorite?
7. Did you ever see them in concert?
8. What genre/style of music does this group represent? (Classical, jazz, pop, rock, new wave or other?) 
9. Is the singer or members of the group all alive?  (If not please research and give information on the members.)
10. What did you learn about the person that you interviewed that YOU did NOT know before?
11-15.  The last 5 questions are questions that you will create yourself. (you can do more)

You will also research your favorite band, group or artist for the assignment.  You are more than welcome to have the person you interviewed interview you! The ONLY part of this assignment that requires homework is the interview.  Everything else will be done in class.  :
