Mozart Research Paper

Wolfgang A. Mozart was one of the greatest composer of his time, or maybe the greatest composer that ever existed. He began writing symphonies at a very young age and started to play publicly at the age of 6, which makes him a prodigy. Since, Mozart was considered a genius, many would think that he is very educated, well behaved, and with dignity. But, on the contrary, Mozart was a complicated/dirty little guy that had weird and unique fetishes. While researching about his fetishes, I found out that he had a thing with human feces. He wrote to his cousin that he wanted to discharge fecal matter on her face and watch it drip down her chin. I was surprised and disturbed that he had this type of behavior, because I always thought that he liked to elegantly sit down, drink wine, and enjoy a rich life. But, I had no idea about how messed up Mozart was. To include, I was only able to find out that Mozart rarely wore a wig and he only wore it to official occasions. During Mozart’s life time, he had being traveling to many European countries in which he was presented as a genius composer. He had also traveled to Paris with the purpose of looking for a better job, but he was discontent for how were things going. After a while, with a young age of 24-25, Mozart moved to Vienna in 1781(May 1-May 2). He moved to Vienna because, he noticed the good opportunities and good living that this place was offering to musicians. So, he started to develop as a freelancer pianist and as a teacher in Vienna. Consequently, he observed that his career was improving this time and he also got to established himself as a prestigious pianist and composer. But who sponsored Mozart’s musical career journey in Vienna? That person was Sigismund Christoph Graf von Schrattenbach; he was Mozart’s employer and supporter of that time. Unfortunately, Schrattenbach died…...

Mozart could play clavichord at the age of three and began writing short compositions at the age of four. When he was 5, he gave his first public performance at Salzburg University. Between 1763 and 1766, Mozart, Nannerl, his sister who was talented in music, together with their father who was a musician as well toured Europe. They visited Paris, London among several other places where Mozart gave several successful concerts, even performing before royalty. This research paper examines the crucial role Mozart played during The Enlightenment. It further highlights the contribution made by the Austrian composer in the transition to romantic from the Enlightenment. Before and during the time of Mozart, composers served the royal courts or church as highly-skilled servants. In the same manner, he began his carrier by working for Salzburg’s Archbishop. Notably, his travels to France as well as England gave him an exposure to the ideals of equality and independence as well. This exposure prompted him to sever his loyalty to the master who employed him to offer services in a very rigid manner. He left for Vienna where......

...most students' careers when they are assigned a research paper. Such an assignment often creates a great deal of unneeded anxiety in the student, which may result in procrastination and a feeling of confusion and inadequacy. This anxiety frequently stems from the fact that many students are unfamiliar and inexperienced with this genre of writing. Never fear—inexperience and unfamiliarity are situations you can change through practice! Writing a research paper is an essential aspect of academics and should not be avoided on account of one's anxiety. In fact, the process of writing a research paper can be one of the more rewarding experiences one may encounter in academics. What is more, many students will continue to do research throughout their careers, which is one of the reasons this topic is so important. Becoming an experienced researcher and writer in any field or discipline takes a great deal of practice. There are few individuals for whom this process comes naturally. Remember, even the most seasoned academic veterans have had to learn how to write a research paper at some point in their career. Therefore, with diligence, organization, practice, a willingness to learn (and to make mistakes!), and, perhaps most important of all, patience, a student will find that she can achieve great things through her research and writing. This handout will include the following sections related to the process of writing a research paper: Genre- This section will provide an......

... Does Playing Mozart to Babies Make Them Smarter? Name: Fiona Ewing Student No.: n8588589 Subject: PYB100 Foundation Psychology Unit Coordinator: Dr Mariann Word Count: 1664 Researchers have claimed that the Mozart effect accomplished everything from temporary increases in IQ to creating the mental mechanism needed for infants to develop reasoning and analytical prowess. However there is little academic research and evidence of the Mozart effect on babies, making it difficult to contribute a link between the theory and intelligence enhancement it has on babies. Many research scientists haven’t been able to replicate the results or the results are temporary and have concluded that there is no evidence of the Mozart effect. Firstly by exploring the initial Mozart experiment conclusions can be draw regarding the Mozart effect and intellectual enhancement on babies. Secondly, through critical evaluation of research articles that were conducted to prove or disprove the theory, conclusions can be drawn regarding the Mozart effect and the degree of intellectual enhancement it has on babies. Thirdly, academic research suggests there is a scientific explanation behind the Mozart effect that provides a deeper understanding of the theory’s claims towards enhancing intelligence. There has been a lot of attention drawn to the first scientific experiment that introduced the Mozart effect. Rauscher, Shaw and Ky (1993) conducted an experiment with thirty-six college students that......

Field Research – Baby Einstein and Mozart Effect

...Field Research – Baby Einstein and Mozart Effect Week Two Assignment PSYCH/600 – Developmental Psychology December 1, 2014 Introduction Learning through the use of music has been a crucial part of development in every society as far back as the Stone Age. Music, in all its forms, has been a staple in every culture, bringing communities together and connecting generation to generation. According to McBride, “The oral tradition of simple children's songs, folk songs, and lullabies is quickly being lost, replaced by commercially produced popular and rock music as more and more people rely on recorded music rather than singing or playing music for themselves and others” (2002). Baby Einstein videos claim to enhance infant’s knowledge, making them smarter, happier babies. This paper will delve into Baby Einstein’s claims, research rebuttals, and ethical impact as laid out by the American Psychological Association. Area of Development Baby Einstein videos are marketed by Disney Corporation with the slogan “Great minds start little” (, 2014). Marketing makes claims that Baby Einstein videos are made to enhance multiple areas such as music, art, language, nature and shapes/numbers. The videos develop the infant’s music skills by enhancing the infant’s rhythm, pitch, and harmony, icon; art through bright, real life picture that have true association.

Research Paper

...Writing a Research Paper in Literary Studies1 The most important aspect to bear in mind is that you are writing a research paper and not an essay! This means that you are arguing a thesis with reference to secondary literature – it is essential that you conduct relevant research and that you integrate your findings into your paper. Things to keep in mind: • Your paper should have a well-defined topic and a precisely formulated argument. • Your approach should be recognizably systematic. • Your argument should remain relevant and clear-cut, consistent and coherent throughout. • Your secondary material should be discussed critically and documented accurately. • Writing is a process; you should constantly revisit and revise. DON’T FORGET TO PRINT, SIGN AND ATTACH THE “PLAGIATSHINWEIS”! First steps Many students neglect the preliminary work of the writing process, but if you give it sufficient attention the actual writing of your paper will be faster and more organized than if you just start writing. The most important thing is to be systematic in your approach. 1. Finding a topic Perhaps the most difficult part of any research paper is finding an adequate topic, formulating a title and making a coherent argument. Once you have decided on a topic or a title, which in literary studies will most likely involve a certain text, rephrase it as a question to guide your research. You should also think about the methodology you intend to apply to your analysis. • ...

Research & Terminology Research Paper

... Research is defined as "studious inquiry or examination; especially : investigation or experimentation aimed at the discovery and interpretation of facts, revision of accepted theories or laws in the light of new facts, or practical application of such new or revised theories or laws" ("Research," 2012). It's said that research is one of the most important processes in the field of criminal justice. There are many ways to complete research which can cause the process of research to take the most time. This paper will discuss the different methods and the different terminology that is used in the criminal justice system. There are two common methods that are used in the criminal justice system and they are the qualitative and quantitative methods. As part of the readings, it was determined that there are so many different methods for researching. However, some of these research methods have never been heard of or people don't know anything about them. There are several steps that would need to be taken in order to complete the entire research cycle. The first term that will be discussed is Scientific Research, which means it's the "research into questions posed by scientific theories and hypothesis" ("Scientific Research," 2011). The most common research method that is used today is the scientific research method, which is used highly in the criminal justice system. Just about every aspect of the criminal justice system revolves around science. Doing......

...Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart change music? That is what this research paper will be about. To me, Mozart’s music is at level of perfection that is unreached by any other composer. Unlike most composers where a composer would only excel in one aspect of music, Mozart excelled in all aspects of music. Mozart had melodic grace like Handel, harmonic complexity like Bach and intellectual developmental techniques as well as emotional content like Beethoven. Mozart also reigned supreme in all styles of music including: fugue, sonata, symphony, concerto, opera, choral music, cannon and cetera. Mozart could do anything. However from what I have learned, there is something deeper inside his music moving as a fundamental undertone throughout his music and ability. As I analyzed the works of the other great composers of this time like Bach, Beethoven and Handel, I noticed how these composers methodically and systematically wrote their music. For example, the sharp melodies and odd intervals in a Bach fugue suggest that his melodies are harmonically born. Bach wrote his music with a harmonic mindset and writes his melodies so that they fit his harmonies. In the opposite way, Handel wrote his music in a way that his harmonies are derived from his melodies. Beethoven had a very logical approach to his music. Starts off with a short theme and that forms the basis of the rest of the movement. So in saying all this, what I mean is their music was manageable. However, with Mozart, I......
