Practicing the Art of Music Journalism is an intensive practicum involving numerous and challenging writing assignments including reviews, previews and think pieces that focus on the broad range of musical activities at Oberlin College and Conservatory. Class sessions are devoted to the workshopping of articles and the intensive copy editing of students’ writing, using Google Docs to give all class members hands-on experience. Other sessions consider examples of writing from major publications and feature guest speakers as a means of introducing students to the inner details of reviewing different artistic genres.
