Dear Adrian,Your draft achieved the following rhetorical goal: to show that you can like rock and classical music at the same time and that each genre of music has its own time and place. Your essay shows that you have the flexibility to appreciate two opposite types of music. The contradiction you chose turned out to work for you because it showed you can be open minded to not only different music but also different people. There is a parallel between the fact that you enjoy rock and classical music and also different groups of people. You strengthened your point in the first passage where you stated “my…appreciation for these different genres of music show… open-mindedness to sound, as well as the cultures associated with these musical styles.” This shows that since you can get pleasure from a wide range of musical tastes, you can get along with a wide range of people from different cultures.
