Thomas Jefferson was born April 13, 1743 at Shadwell, which was a slave plantation in Central Virginia. During Thomas’s school years, he studied Latin, Greek, and French; and in 1760, he went to the College of William and Mary. He learned how to play the violin and was a very skilled horseman by the age of thirteen. When his father, Peter Jefferson died, he left almost thirty slaves and about three thousand acres of land to Thomas in his will. On New Year’s Day, Martha Wayles Skelton, who was a widow, and Thomas got married.
While his parents listened to Stan Kenton and other remaining remnants of the Big Band era Jimmy Page discovered a different type of music. “Baby Let’s Play House” by Elvis Presley was the song that initially sparked his interest in learning to play guitar and by listening to other records on which guitarist Scotty Moore played. Ricky Nelson and guitarist James Burton and rocker Chuck Berry all had hit records while Page listened. By listening to artists whom he considered vibrant, his determination carried him through a series of apprenticeships after Neil Christian and the Crusaders in 1962. With Carter Lewis and the Southerners in 1963 he recorded “Your Momma’s
Before the first rehearsal I had to prepare and make sure my part was solid. About a week before we first rehearsed, I printed out my part, looked at the score, and just listened to a few recordings. This was to get a sense of how my part fit into whole piece, but also to find any trouble spots, such as places with tricky tuning or technically weird passages. Then it was just about practicing the parts and writing in notes for the needed adjustments. Overall, my part was not difficult to play, except for a small section (about two measures in length) in the Beethoven and Bruch that I could have had cleaner articulation in.
Initial rebellion were tantrums; fake tears spilt in hopes of avoiding practice sessions. As time slowly passed, I fell in love with the big, wooden instrument. Daily practices quickly flew by as I buried my daily stress under a large pile of old, wrinkled sheet music. That view quickly changed my freshman year of high school. My good meaning mother,
My five activity choices fall in the following categories of leisure: performing arts: music, visual arts, games: passive, sports, and nature and outdoor. The activity that appealed to me from the performing arts: music category is classical instruments. I love listening to classical music, specifically the violin and piano. I would love to learn how to play the violin. My dad bought me a violin roughly 4 years ago, but I haven’t had the time to learn how to play.
One scene he planned the wedding for his daughter in four days then later he rescheduled it one more day closer and finally he planned it for the next day, “Well get you gone: o' Thursday be it, then.

Kristen mentioned how she brought in her violin to the classroom and played the violin. After telling Kristen about my passion of photography, I decided to create a new lesson for the classroom. In the classroom, there is a fake camera that the children play with and use to pretend to take pictures. Throughout high school and into college, I have taken photography courses. Unfortunately it has been difficult for me to continue to enjoy photography because I have not had the time to go out and explore different places to shoot photographs.
Prompt: “Write about a song you like and why?” My whole life revolves around music; everyday I’m going to either choir or orchestra. While I’m driving I’m singing along with the radio. Narrowing down all of the songs in my repertoire is a difficult task. After thinking about this question for a good half an hour I came to a conclusion.
So, after an agonizing twenty minutes of receiving compliments by strangers about completing the pretest after five minutes and having the teacher call me to the front to demonstrate long division, while she went to have a conversation with the principal about what to do with me, they decided to put me in a class that had both fourth and fifth graders. Right now, I was
My gaze penetrates the black box and wishes to create frictions of four strings, the way musicians were rendering the music during my Middle School orientation. My elective choice, a violin, upset my mom though. Italian Andrea Amati, creator of the first violin would never be imagined that roller coaster inventor Joseph Merlin introduced his invention while playing the violin. Up to middle school, an orchestra was a part of regular school time, the predicament started when I continued playing violin in the school orchestra at Troy High School.
Conie: “I had been playing the guitar for a few years and had become kind of bored or unsatisfied with not doing anything about it. So the next thing I knew, I wanted to start a band.” Q: Where do you guys practice? Conie: “We practice at eachothers houses, and usually on Sundays.
The Age of Reason is a name used to describe the age that influenced the American Statesmen of the Revolution. Taxes forced upon the colonists by Britain after the French and Indian War enraged the colonists, leading to the Revolution that would change the world forever. Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence and Thomas Paine’s The Crisis Number 1 were two very important works of literature during the Revolutionary period. Both works used persuasion effectively.
Thomas Paine came from a pretty average family. His father was a corseter he had high hopes for his son to go further than he had in life. This was not really in the cards it seemed at first. He was consistently failed at everything he did first was the family business then he was an excise tax officer, however he failed at that as well not once but twice. In the process he did start what would become his legacy, writing.
Jefferson was the primary of the Declaration of Independence which led to the end of the American Revoulution War. At age 33, he was one of the adolescent delegates to the Second Continental Congress which was onset in 1775 at the uprising of the Revoulutionary War, where a legal Declaration of Indepedence from Britian was strongly perferred.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” (“Brainy Quotes”). These words written by Thomas Jefferson inspired all the Americans that fought for independence. The Declaration of Independence contained these words that separated the colonies from Britain, creating a new country. Thomas Jefferson contributed to the start of a great country in which freedom is entitled to every citizen (“Thomas Jefferson”, O’Brien).
