Arnie shared this question about music:
There are many different types of music in the world today. Why do we need music? Is the traditional music of a country more important than the international music that is heard everywhere nowadays?
Here's a quick plan to show you how I would approach this question:
- Introduction: Paraphrase the idea that many types of music are found around the world, then briefly answer both parts of the question.
- Paragraph answering the first question: Explain why we need music e.g. for enjoyment, to express ideas and emotions. Give an example from your experience, and/or explain what life would be like without music.
- Paragraph answering the second question: It might be easier to argue that traditional music is more important e.g. because it expresses cultural identity, customs, history. Give an example from your country, and/or explain how you would feel if traditional music disappeared.
- Conclusion: Repeat / summarise your views.
I'll continue with this question next week.
