In the movie, when Coach Boone gave pep talks before the games, the team came together over what Coach Boone said. But, in reality, the team came together when Blue started to sing in training camp, and the others joined in, that is when the team started to become one and bond. When the team listened and sang to music, the team played and became one. This helped them bond together and win the rest of their games. Although the coaches helped them bond and become one team, the team came together through
My music teachers were the ones who pushed me out of my comfort zone and broke my shell. It is important for me to become one because through out school they were the ones who have had the biggest impact on me in many different ways. I want to be able to have that same impact on students when I am a music educator. I want to be able to make a big impact on someone who was just like me and see them grow as not just a person, but also as a performer. Being able to be a music educator is not just important for me, but is important for the students that I
My junior year, I transferred voice teachers because my old voice teacher was moving away. Though she had already made plans for me to go to a new voice teacher that could prepare me for college auditions during my junior and senior year, I was sad to see her move. This is when I started studying under Susan Reed. Her approach was different from my first voice teacher, but I could tell when I first met her that she would prepare me for my college auditions. As a former opera singer herself she told me about some of her experience of performing, which gave me some idea of what to
We mostly learn the song during band camp but we perfect them in band class throughout the school week. On the eighth day of band camp we played for so long that I got a migraine so bad that as I was playing my eyes watered up and I had to get outside for some needed silence. For the upperclass men they could almost play the songs already because of their experience but for the freshmen to play at a level four years above them is a lot more challenging. Our weekends are only one day long compared to the average of two and a half. On Friday we are required to go to the varsity football game.
The band director ended up making where low brass wasn't a section, everyone was there individual leaders. Which Ozzy a hissy fit over, because he wanted the section to be whole, but in the end he got over it. At the end of every Marching season, we have a concert and play every song we have played that season and awards are given out. Due to all my hard work and practicing I got the “Most Improved”
As section leader of the alto saxophones, it was not easy to teach six underclassmen how to march and memorize music, along with keeping all fifteen members of my section in order. I had to learn how to be a friendly and fun leader, along with being respected and authoritative. The most memorable award I received was the Instrumental Music Department Letter Award, which reminded of how much work I put into my years as a member of the various band ensembles in my school. Another membership that has taught me a lot is the National Honors Society. As a member of NHS, I had to take a lot of responsibilities.
Not only was I elected to be the treasurer of the music program, but I was also awarded the position of "low brass section leader." Earning this position sparked my desire be an ever greater musician; therefore, I decided to audition for the PMEA District 9 Concert Band. Being selected to participate in this band festival is undoubtedly the most difficult of all band festivals; however, I put a tremendous amount of work into my audition, which ultimately allowed me be one of only six band members from my school to be admitted to this prestigious band festival. Senior year has only just begun, but nevertheless, I still continue to put my best into the band program. I currently serve as the vice president of the organization, and in the marching band, I am the brass captain.
This led to his Hot Five and Hot Seven. After being featured on multiple records for many different bands Armstrong was offered a chance to be recorded with a band under his own name (biography.com). Armstrong’s new spotlight grew his popularity in large strides. His personal style of playing and ability to make jazz a solo friendly music became the people's new favorite type of jazz. He put out many records and his popularity grew even in outside countries.
One of the first of these is the passion that I have had for the fine arts since I got my first instrument in my fifth-grade year. Instruments for me then and now were used for expression, as well an escape and an outlet, even if it was just for a few minutes. I used music as a sort of antidepressant, as I felt like I did not have very many friends and felt completely alone for a long time. I also used to sing in the school choir and performing in the theatrical productions to express my emotions and feel like an important person to myself in my life. Some of the very first influences I had growing up with music was my grandpa and my music teachers Mrs. Dayton and Mr. Howe (yes, there used to be a Mr. Howe where I used to go to school as well) My grandpa, when I was little, always used to sing around the house and to the kids to make us laugh.
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.
