As a music education major, I want to focus on a research topic relating to music. I didn’t want to research education, specifically because I want to learn more about other musical aspects. Here are a few options that I might want to research!
Option 1: Social media’s influence on the music business– how do applications like youtube, Spotify, instagram, etc… affect aspiring artists trying to break into the music industry, today?
Option 2: Culture v. Music throughout the decades– why do older generations tend to dislike new music? why are new genres/styles hated on when first released, then gradually accepted?
Option 3: Movie/TV Soundtracks and the Watcher– how do movie/tv soundtracks affect watchers emotionally (psychologically)?
