I was asked by my choir teacher to join the school’s music enrichment, Advanced Singers. This was the year that music was helping me break out of my shell of being that shy person. As the school years went on I was involved in my high school’s musicals and have the pleasure of being a part of my high school’s honors choir. Being in the choir and participating in all of the music enrichments that my
Marching band; copious amounts of people scoff at the sound of those words. I often hear students commenting on how easy marching band is, how we don’t train like the football players do. At Anderson High School, that’s not the case, the marching band trains for just as long. As a band of over 125 individuals, it takes determination, pride, and confidence to achieve the goals we have set forth to accomplish. As a leader of the saxophone section, I know what it’s like to face failure, to overcome and turn it into success and to march on with confidence.
Kaitlyn Hatchett Mr. Bergmann Senior English P5 28 August 2015 The Benefits of Participating in High School Band High school band is often looked upon as an activity where a bunch of nerds get in big, bulky, sweaty uniforms and walk around the football field during halftime all the while playing music that they have memorized. Although this is 99.9% true, marching band is much more than that and if you think about what was just stated, that takes a lot of time, effort, and dedication. Marching band provides students with life lessons and skills that can never be forgotten. There are some major “plus factors” of being a part of a high school band such as: students get to be around other students that they normally would not associate with,
After I got my stuff there we had to go down to rehearsal in the Neumann Auditorium, this took about an hour and a half. The cool thing is that after that rehearsal everybody came and then we got to record all of our songs! We would sing them until they were as close to perfect as we could get! Sometimes we did a song once, sometimes we did it three times. Almost 2 hours later we were finally done recording and camp was over.
I am apart of every club in the school and I am going to keep that record. A new club just popped up and it is called the glee club. It's a show choir and I just so happen to have the best voice anyone has ever heard. I like to call myself the labra tiesan of the new generation.
To start the Sunday concert off was an energetic, composed group from the gateway to the Sierras city of Clovis. The Clovis North High School Choir was polished and proud to show their talent in front of the big city college singers. The group from Clovis sang three pieces, ending the set with “In the Light of a Clear Blue Morning.” During the last song, a student by the name of Kelly Dow was
At the beginning of this show many of us weren’t comfortable being as over the top as we were, but once we stepped out side of our comfort zones we completed the task at hand. So as I continue to sing in Sartell Choirs and any choir, I want to continue to step out side of my comfort
Thousands of cheers erupted as the stadium was filled with the uplifting melody of contemporary Christian music. Everywhere I looked, someone was enthusiastically clapping and belting out lyrics as they appeared on the enormous projector screen. Without bothering to care about the pitchiness of their teenage vocals, they bounced up and down screaming out the song as if each person was determined to out sing the person sitting next to him or her. As I adjusted to the crazy scene that Catholic youth conferences commonly created, I cautiously proceeded to add my screechy singing voice to the mix.
When I first walked into the band room I got so nervous, because I was hearing other people warming up and I was afraid I was not going to make the band. The officers of the band were there to help you with the process of audition for band. I went in for my audition on baritone in the director 's office and played for them. There was
Our choir has rehearsals twice a week and we participate at church services twice a month. I think music is a very good tool to uplift broken hears spiritually, especially if a person is shy to reach out to get counseling, beautiful music
During middle school I became involved with the varsity orchestra; this is where I developed my basic musical and performance skills. I began to crave the talent of singing during my eighth grade year, especially after my dad revealed to me his singing capabilities. Having listening and practicing with different music, I learned to keep a pitch, but I did not have a good vocal tone. My voice was weak, soft, and far from producing the least amount of musicality. For about two years my father
Sophomore and Junior year I acquired letters in choir, while also making the Payne Street Singers (auditioned show choir) my junior and now senior year. Our choir every year organizes an event called Ditties and Desserts.
On that day, in competition for 16 mellophone spots there were 60 people; and of the 80 spots in the hornline, there were 300 auditionees. I try not to let this affect me, and after I get checked in I begin mentally prepare for my first corps audition. The hornline is scheduled for music block first. After the first downbeat of warm-up, my instincts took over; four years of marching band, and three months of intense training led me to what had been my best audition, and one of the top auditions for the camp. At the end of the camp everyone was huddled in the gymnasium, and the corps staff called names, the names of everybody that got cut.
I am so pumped for community band. Is that time of the year, whether old and young, get together to play some music. Getting to play music in it of itself is a fantastic opportunity that I 'm so thankful to have. To be able to see friends once again, and meet new people, while at the same time creating some beautiful beats, can only be done there. Is great to take what we have been able to accomplished in only 3 rehearsals, and share it with anyone that wants to come and watch.
With or without an instrument in my hands, I tend to find myself stuck in the background noise. As an underclassman in high school, I kept to myself, hesitant to put myself out in the open and take risks. Low risk meant safety and comfort; however, the monotony of my initial high schools years mustered up madness in my mind. Change loomed. This past year alone, I’ve participated in class dance-offs, played Powder Puff volleyball, camped out on the football field for band camp, and so much more, all of which being new experiences and emulating my decision to challenge myself with a baritone
