Sample of Written Response (based on Rebel Music, p. 81)
In Rebel Music,
Daniel Felsenfeld shares his coming of age as a musician and composer.
The story is his journey as a rebel and surprising discovery and passion
for classical music. The main idea or thesis is what it means to be
different. Unlike other teenagers who listened to punk, goth, heavy
metal music, he finds something that really sets him apart. The climax
comes when he heard “something really wild” that changes his life:
Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The resolution was his decision to become a
composer of contemporary classical music.
He describes how his
life in Orange County, California takes an unexpected turn by using
compare and contrast. He compares the lush landscape of his childhood
neighborhood to the arid or desert-like life without high art and
“The O.C. was billed as the ideal suburban community, but
when you are raised in the palm-tree lined Shangri-La,… it is hard to
grasp what is missing. Now, I realize: even though we had enough water
to keep the manicured leans just so, I was experiencing a personal
drought, an arid lack of culture of all kinds, especially music”
(Felsenfeld, 2010, p. 81).
