  10. 10. TASK Create a powerpoint titled: Researching Genre Outline the repertoire of your chosen genre (for print this is the type of music your magazine will focus on). Do this by identifying the key components of the genre. You should create a slide for each key component and representation and refer to at least 3 different texts from within your genre to back up the point that you make. Your final slide should be a detailed summary of the things which your own work must include to be of your chosen genre. BE REALISTIC– think about access to locations, costumes etc.)
