The Main theme here is Latin American music. So you can choose a music topic from any country between Mexico and Argentina.
What do you want to choose as your subject?
It can be a Music Genre or Style, an Artist, a Composer, a performer, a Song, a Band, a Record (like Vinyl or CD), a Dance or form of Dance, a music style that influenced other art forms, a Movie, a Play, etc.
In case you’re wondering which kind of approach you want to use, these are the four major types of essays according to their purposes:
• Narrative Essays: Telling a Story. In a narrative essay, the writer tells a story about a real-life experience.
• Descriptive Essays: for example, Painting a Picture, writing a song, performing a concert, conducting an orchestra.
• Expository Essays: Just the Facts. But then you add your vision on the matter.
• Persuasive Essays: Convince Me.
As you can see, the personal aspect is very important so, yes my dear, you can write in first person, meaning you can be involved as part of the Narrative and say something like “In my own experience”, “My approach to”, “I was part of a situation in which…”
I am not a music major student, so you can choose something like a movie that has Latin American music like the movie CoCo and write about it.
