I struggled in the beginning because I couldn’t find any love towards band and my instrument. But as my journey progressed I started to find the joy and the art in band. I might have taken 6 years for that to happen, but it was worth it because I couldn’t imagine my life without band. Band has taught me how to challenge myself and believe in my own abilities as a musician. It has also taught me how to be apart of a team and what it means to be responsible for my own part in activities.
Unlike my older brother, I could not do theory very well. Doing the practical component was fine, but I found it extremely difficult to remember all the different terms. Despite the fact that I was not good in theory, I went ahead with the exam. I trusted God and gave my best. By God’s grace, I am now teaching three students music theory.
Music has always been a part of me, but until recently it has sparked a new interest in my mind. After becoming a stronger musician and person, I have learned that my music brought me to where I am today. As a junior looking back on my years of music, I noticed how much I have grown as a musician and an individual and there are four major steps that have helped me gain my abilities, learning to play an instrument, practicing consistently, building confidence, and trying new things. These simple steps took me seven years to accomplish and I am still learning everytime I pick up my instrument. The first step to becoming a musician is finding the right instrument that suits you and your style.
A huge part of my life has been music since a young age considering my mother also played an instrument and was in her own high school’s marching band. As a child, the piano sitting in the dining room of my home always taunted me with the mystery as to why it was there, but I was consistently curious as to what it would sound like to play. After deliberating intensely, I finally decided to teach myself how to play, and playing the piano soon became an important part of my life. As soon as I was allowed in the band, I joined and began to learn how to play the trombone; however, only knowing how to play one instrument within the marching band never managed to sate me. This need later led me to switch to Euphonium in order to perfect my skill
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. Liking a song doesn’t mean it has to be on the radio or on the track list of a pop star’s album; which is why a song I like is “Fiddles on Fire” by Mark Williams.
When i was a kid I always think I could open my own concert like a star or become a professional singer. That is my dream But as I grew older I found that want to become a good singer need hard practice and excellent talent, may i have a good voice, But i don’t have much time to practice, The reason is because i still need more time to learn but this does not affect i like singing, because when i am singing i can forget my troubles, and also can make me happy.

There were also things that my cousin was not able to teach me, and I had to learn on my own like positioning and counting rhythm. I spent hours reading through musical theory books so that I could understand the background and general makeup of playing the piano. My time and dedication to learning allowed me to become a good piano player and showed that I belonged in that community. Becoming a part of the piano playing discourse community allowed me to become a part of a new family in which I felt accepted. Being a part of it has taught me many new things that do not apply just to the community itself but to life in general.
But despite the fact I was interested in acting and singing for most of my life, I felt insecure about it and therefore tried to deny it, hoping my love for theatre would go away. Instead, I focused on a different passion I have, which also has to do with telling stories – writing. I wrote my first novel and sent it to
I realized my passion for performing at a young age, but it wasn’t until high school when I realized I wanted to pursue it in the future. I knew by the time I was doing two to three shows a semester, that I wanted nothing more, than to pursue a career in the performing arts. I wasn’t always fully invested in musical theatre. My parents introduced me to sports such as soccer and water polo as a young 3rd grader. While I spent much of my time playing sports, I naturally gravitated towards dance, music and choir in school.
You are setting the theme to the song in your verse. Then you add a chorus and a bridge to completely tell your story. The most important part to any song is the chorus. The chorus is the part of the song that is repeated after each verse. The chorus is the part of the song that gets stuck in most people’s head, it is the catchy part.
