Before he was a doctor, he was a pianist. From age three, he played the piano. By the time he was 20 and entering medical school, he was not only good at playing the instrument but was very accomplished. He loved classical music, and music would help mould him into a very good doctor. Love for piano Enrique “Buddy” Ostrea Jr is one of five children.
Over the years, I have grown to be an increasingly active member of my community. I began in the sixth grade when I was a member of a local society called Students on a Mission, sponsored by my school. We did various things in the community around our school, such as, maintaining the vegetation and cleaning, and visiting the nearby nursing home. Outside of school, I worked in the community through my church. For a few years, on alternating Sundays, I visited the Heritage of Dover, and sang and interacted with the elderly there.
“The good ole days weren't as always good, and tomorrow ain’t as bad as it seems.” Billy Joel went from an average class worker to a well know piano player. He impacted pop music by focusing on his piano, won multiple Grammys and awards, was inducted into the Songwriters and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, making him one of the most influenced pop artists in the 20th century. Billy Joel started music since he was a little little boy. When he was 4 his dad made him start piano lessons, and the piano lesson kept going for 10 more years (Stambler, 1989). When Billy was younger he decided he liked boxing and music, but he liked music so much he wanted to start a career on music (Schlesinger, 2008).
My identity is wrapped up in my love of music because I have been surrounded by it since I was little. When I was a toddler, I would sit for long periods of time and watch videos of kids singing songs. As I grew older I participated in my church's children's choir and even held solos in my elementary school chorus. When I reached middle school I joined my school's middle school chorus in 7th grade as an alto and 8th grade as a soprano. The transition between 8th and 9th grade was important for me because I took up voice lesson in 8th grade and went to my first music camp the summer before 9th grade.
As a sophomore I was secretary of SASA, “Students Against Substance Abuse,” and president my junior year. At church, I was beehive and mia maid first counselor and the pianist in the primary. In the musicals I was a lead dancer. I am a member of the National Honor Society. I volunteered to teach children music lessons after school as part of a mentor
Since my school was an arts magnet school, I now had access new musical resources. I was able to get the help of many talented student musicians to record the pieces I wrote. Because of these recordings, I received an offer from the TV production teacher at my school to be put in contact with some of his students who were interested in submitting their short films to independent film festivals (meaning they would need original scores.) I worked on three films, one of which actually made it to a festival. The new techniques and styles I learned while scoring films spread to my personal compositions and inspired me to write many new pieces, including my first symphony.
The music recital took place on April 12, 2017 at 12 pm, in the Morrison Fine Arts Building. The recital was help in the choir room, many attended. The show start with a short piano performance by Frederick Walker. I was very impressed I never seen somone play the piano without a music sheet. He performed a piece called L’Arabesque by Fredrich Burgmuller .
Chopin Frederic Chopin was born on 1st March 1810, not far from Warsaw, Poland to a Polish mother and a French father. When he was six months old, he and his family moved to Warsaw, where they lived in the grounds of the Saxon Palace, where Chopin’s father had gotten a job. Having previously been taught piano by his older sister, Chopin first started receiving professional music lessons in 1816 and it was immediately apparent that he had enormous talent. By the time he was eight years old, he had already given his first public concert. He attended the Warsaw Lyceum, where he took organ lessons; subsequently leaving school to attend the Warsaw Conservatoire of Music where he studied music theory, figured bass and composition.
I had been in band from fifth grade through high school so even just hearing an ensemble sound again was amazing as I miss band very much. I also really enjoyed The Swan Lake Suite as it has been one of my favorite pieces since I was little, so it was also really nice to hear something that I already knew a little of how it would go. The orchestra sounded amazing and I am also good friends with one of the bassoon players so it was neat that one of our concerts to choose from had someone I knew in it. It was so interesting to hear all of the elements we have been discussing in class, actually in person and it was helpful that I was in band throughout school so it was easier to pick out certain aspects like melody, tempo, and dynamics for example. Overall, this concert was very enjoyable and performed
Since a toddler, growing up with my grandma, I enjoy going to my church New Mount Calvary Baptist Church (NMCBC). While being a member at NMCBC I was apart of the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve Plays, Female Junior Usher for a little over 2 years, and now I am part of the Junior Choir, and when older I want to be in the full choir. I came to having these different characteristics
