Her performing career was pretty smooth sailing throughout her life due to the connections and having great musicians as her close friends to perform chamber music together. Not only did she play new pieces composed by her husband and her friends, she also played masterpieces of the late baroque and classical period, which shone her from other pianists of that period as it was not common then. Clara Wieck was thankful for her father’s strictness as she believed this had a strong impact on bringing her up as a substantial
Majoring in music has been my dream since my freshman year of high school. Near the end of my junior year, I discovered that I wanted to be a choir director. Being in theatre has helped me figure out my calling in life, and I wouldn’t trade the past ten years of my life that I’ve spent at the theatre. Theatre has encouraged me to push myself out of my comfort zone, and without it I never would have been able to sing as confidently as I can today. The first plays I was ever in were musicals, and that’s how I found my love for singing.
I am in the middle of my fourth year playing clarinet. I would greatly enjoy going to your summer camp again; I went to the junior summer camp last year (2016) and had a wonderful time preparing music with musician I did not know and got to learn. I have truly grown as a musician these past years, have had memorable experiences during marching and concert season, one goal I have is taking my playing abilities into college. I started playing clarinet in the sixth grade and spent that year learning as much as I could in a public school with 43 beginning clarinets. That summer going into seventh grade I started lessons which got me playing more often and into my middle school’s second band, symphonic, keeping high chairs.
I love to cheer for my high school sports teams and dancing is one of my favorite pastimes. To be able to work with kids that looked up to me was very important to me. I wanted them to have the best experience possible to know what it is like to cheer and to show that it is very fun. I was able to teach cheers and play games with the kids. Overall, I learned many things throughout the years volunteering, but the one thing that I will never forget is that inspiration, dedication, and hard work is essential for a successful life.
Music Observation 1 On Thursday, September 10, I went to Valley View Elementary to observe Mrs. Allison Whitmire’s Kindergarten music class. I arrived there little bit earlier so I got to observe the first grade class. They were studying about the American flag and singing the Star Spangled banner. After the first graders left, Mrs. Whitmire gave me a sheet of her lesson plan.
When I was selected to play in the 2015 All-State honor band, my dream transpired. Since the seventh grade I have participated in jazz band along with concert band; I now play in my high school 's most selective jazz band. Humbled by my elite group members, I accept many improvisation solos to express my ideas and find my place among
Almost all the competitive marching bands have done away to trombone for safety reasons, intonation, and drill work. I had to adapt and learn how to play the new instrument. Since I was able to pick the horn up and figure it out quickly, I soon became able to teach the other three players in my section how the valves corresponded with what we knew with slide positions. The summer was merely putting two and two together. As the season went on we were able to compete and have a successful year, but what made that year special was we were able to watch Bands of America and then make a goal to perform there.
The two things I enjoy the most is being a journalist and a musician, those two have made my life worth living for. I’ve always been interested in Music since I was little because when I was in Elementary school I played the Violin which made me really enjoy music. Now, I am in highschool and I am the lead trumpet player on my senior year. For Extra Curricular Activity I take part in Marching band for my passion of music and my senior year I lead the band as the drum major. It mostly just trains your ears to listen for the little things in music in my opinion it 's kind of cool.

During my years in orchestra, I participated in two solo/ensembles were I was judged. I received high scores for both my solo and ensemble. I looked forward to this class everyday, because I love music. When my brother was in middle school with me I would go to his football games, even when it was freezing outside. I also found slight joy in attending his games.
