To me, it’s home. The same feeling of ecstasy I get from playing music and marching has given me new experiences I can use for the future. I now not only have better interpersonal skills but I also have an extreme respect and will to work hard at everything. As a freshman in high school, band helped me form bonds I would not have made
by Francis Irving Lankey and Arthur Sayles This song was created almost a century ago, and I still hear people singing this song at every Spartan athletic event. In most cases, music is used to show significance to a specific event in someone 's life, or usually used to represent some type of pride you have in your school, team, or country. Music has played important role in American history and has been connecting people for generations. This is important to me because music taught me how to be a diligent worker and never give up on my dreams. As a kid, most of us were exposed to songs such as the ABC 's or theme songs from children 's TV shows.
I have been in band class since 6th grade. I became interested in band because I like music and watching other people play cymbals and the trombone. Band class is a class students enjoy because it is fun and it is teamwork. To begin with, band is fun. You can play any instrument that you want.
As a music education major, teaching music is something that I hope in doing one day; To have my own band with my own students all eager to learn and have fun. A band not only filled with students that are capable of growing into fine musicians but also capable of growing up into better overall people. My high school music programs and music teachers were the ones that encouraged me to go down this musical path that I am in now. Band was more than just a club; it was like another family to me. Always surrounded with friends because of band was what made school more enjoyable.
My choral experience inspired me to want to become a music educator, whether it be choral conducting, theory, applied studies, or something else music related. I wish to recreate the experience I was lucky enough to have. I want my classroom to be a place where young adults can let go of their home issues and be able to heal through song and support from their fellow musicians. I hope my students can take the lessons they learn in the classroom and apply them to all areas of their life as they continue to build their character and find themselves, just as I did. After taking this Chicano studies class, I am now able to look back on my experiences and understand why my choral participation and directors had such a major impact on my life.
I am the type of person that likes helping the elderly and the needy; so when I go to India, giving clothes and food to the boys and girls who have nothing to eat and sleep with an empty stomach is a priority to me during my trip. The Atlantic County Library is also somewhere I volunteer; helping young children read books and organizing craft days on the weekends. It is a duty for every high school student to contribute to their society to make the community around us a better
My entire senior year of high school, an eerie fog of anxiety lingered around myself because of the approaching new part of my life that I couldn’t quite anticipate as well as other events in my life. This chapter in my life that I almost dreaded because of the uncertainty, the path that was always envisioned for me, ironically, the only certain option for myself–attending college. I had my fears before I even applied to a school because I knew myself, I knew I wasn’t as independent as I let myself out to be, and I knew the chance of getting rejected by my first choice school was likely, a school where my friends were attending, where almost complete independence wouldn’t swallow me whole. As you might guess from my transfer application, the likely indeed happened. And so, the most difficult and independent
It is funny, but I tend to see similarities between people that I would have never seen if I had not moved. They are all their own person, but it has shown me the types of people I get along well with. My friends here in Ravena also challenge me. A few of us often disagree, mainly me and Laya, but that has made me realize how important it is to have friends that will be completely honest with you no matter what. They have taught me that I value honesty above many other things, and they help me better myself as we grow older
But by the help of good people, he was inspired and has dreams. And also he reached his goal. Will’s condition is so different from normal people and it may some people to think that he has mental disorder. But many people are surprised by his math skill especially when he solved the math problems that an MIT professor writes on a hallway chalkboard. For the students, these problems are too difficult to solve, but for Will, they 're easy.
I did not make friends. I was behind in work there due to different graduation standards, I would be graduating a semester late. I struggled to keep up. Then, as I was settling in after a few months, my father’s company went bankrupt, and we were faced with another move. I was faced with a decision: dropout of high school or move to yet another school, where I knew no
I will help motivate my peers to take on more community and school service projects. I am not afraid to break out of my comfort zone to benefit those around me. The past two years I have worked to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. This lead me to many clubs and extracurricular activities that I know enjoy.
In addition, there is one of children that just started entering normal school with taking care by youth worker and a little bit helping of us by teaching him English, so I and my volunteering friends really expect these children to have great future as
I feel grateful for the guidance and friendship that my advisors at Park have given me. While there are many things I hope my next advisor learns about me, and there are two important things I would like my Dana Hall advisor to know about me. Over the years, I have grown passionates for many different hobbies. I have always had a passion for arts and craft and I started doing more in second grade After a long day at school, I began to attend crocheting lessons as something fun and relaxing.
