Typically, the United States has a very formal perception on concerts. The band/orchestra is on an elevated stage, while the spectators/audience members sit quietly and listen to the music. This was not the case for Fuego Tropical concert. They encouraged people to get up and dance, clap, sing along, and just have fun. Many people, including myself, were caught off guard by this concept, but it definitely made for a fun experience.
The French horn is a ‘brass instrument made of tubing wrapped into a coil with a flared bell”. This was very interesting to me because I love music and I never thought about the French horn. I was very amazed on how Jolley was really dedicated to playing his French horn. As
Lou Gehrig once said, “I love to win; but I love to lose almost as much. I love the thrill of victory, and I also love the challenge of defeat.” Lou gehrig was not a speech giver, he was a top class athlete that was not afraid of defeat. He used defeat to his advantage instead of mourning over it. He was not a speech giver or speech writer but he was almost as good at it as he was good at baseball. The speech he delivered to a sold out Yankees Stadium full of fans for his farewell was one of the best short speeches ever given in my opinion.
Dave Matthews was adamant grass roots methods of tourism, and his audacity, he was successful and spread his message of self-affirmation anti-racial millions. Many individual successes have been achieved that are the legacy of the Dave Matthews Band. Dave Matthews in collaboration with the local jazz guru John D'earth picked up some exceptional players from the local jazz scene to tape some songs Matthews Band. The "Dave Matthews Band" newly formed frequently played concerts and has become progressively popular in the local celebrations college frat house. From the origin until now the Dave Matthews Band maintains a mental basis, earning their fan base through visits, and using their independent label "Bama Rags" to assist others struggling
Telling me that I needed to learn my place in the low brass section because it was my first year in low brass, and I didn't know anything since I was on a new instrument. Even though I could play better the Craig and marched better than Ozzy, because of them hating on me relentlessly. I left the building crying and was about to quite together until Layla became very angry and told them off. I was talk out of quitting by Brian and Layla because we need trombones and it would be not fun without me. The band director ended up making where low brass wasn't a section, everyone was there individual leaders.
From the whole concert band, “Eyes Open” needed more work on. When we got the song in the beginning, we were pretty good at it, but it still needed more work on and more improvement. It did not help that we did not practice it the day before nor the day of the concert. We did not play together on it very well, neither did we stay together. From the high school band, “The Pink Panther” was a little sketchy in a few spots, especially after the solos.
They were not very influential but they were my best friends and I enjoyed hanging around with them. We used to go everywhere together, hang out every night. School came and my grades were low and it was not because I was dumb it was because I did not care. I did not care about school I thought that after I graduated I was going to move out the house and live by myself. I thought that everything would be over and that I would still be best friends with my friends when high school ended.
I started writing music as an assignment for my middle school orchestra class. Since then, I’ve written over thirty pieces, taken AP music theory and scored a five, scored films for students in the TV production magnet program at my school, and studied in depth scores by the great composers of history. I didn’t do these things just so I could inflate my ego by writing about them in college essays, and I certainly didn’t do them because I was good at them naturally. Why, then, is it necessary to mention these miscellaneous achievements? Unfortunately, the only way to officially quantify one’s interest in something artistic seems to be making a “laundry list” of their artistic achievements.
The video we watched this week involved three musicians with different leadership styles but their outcome was the same, produce great music. The first musician was Duke Ellington and his band. Duke did not care if his band members hated each other, drank, or even went to jail. Duke’s main concern was that they were able to produce good music at the end of the day. The second musician in the video was Benny Goodman, and his style was to put the fear of God into his band members.
That all changed though on one fateful day in November. I was in the 7th grade with a junior high director that had made band the most boring and drawn out part of my day. It didn 't like band was ever going to be fun for me, That is, until the day of All-Region tryouts. We had been working a little bit on our music and I had practiced a little, but not very much. Since band wasn 't that fun for me it wasn 't one of my man priorities at that time.
