When I was a kid, I was a part of the little children’s choir at my church, Morningside Presbyterian. We mostly just played musical games to get us used to our voices, learn how to hold a note, or just have a bit of fun. One of the games we played was one where our choir director played notes on the piano that sounded like an animal. He would twiddle away on the keys making melodies that went ba-hump, ba-hump, and we would all yell out “frog!” or “bunny!” Perhaps they would go duh-dumph, duuh dumph, and we would guess a shark. I didn’t think much of it at the time. To me, he was just one of the family friends we saw around a lot. As it turns out, this family friend of mine was a bit of a bigger deal than I had thought. The man who played these little games with us, grinning the whole time, was actually the chorus master of the Atlanta Opera. Walter Huff is one of the most renowned chorus masters worldwide. He toured Europe and America, directing choral groups in hundreds upon hundreds of performances along the way. When he wasn’t doing that, he
In the movie, there are many musical moments, the most famous to come out of this film was, “Singin’ in the Rain”. In that scene, Gene Kelly is singing in what is considered his musical space. Kelly starts off the song on the sidewalk, and as the song goes on people are staring at him as he is singing. For many musicals, the character can be in their musical space, but that musical space does not interfere with the rest of what is going on in the narrative. Although people acknowledge that he is singing, there is still that chasm, because the leads singing in the rain is out of the norm. This type of musical integration adds to the movie by creating a comedic atmosphere during the scene. Pedestrians and policeman are looking at Kelly like

Martin Luther King Jr. provides a very dramatic speaking style in his “I Have a Dream” speech, in which he alters his prosody by changing the pitch of his voice. One instance of this is when Dr. King Jr. says, “I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of ‘interposition’, and ‘nullification’ – one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today!” (7:36). King alters his prosody by changing the pitch of his voice multiple times throughout this moment. He makes it sound similar to singing a song, as there
Then came a squatter (Local Farmer) and three troopers who asked what the swagman had in his tucker bag and the swagman jumped up and sprang into the billabong. The title of the poem is Aussie slang for travelling on foot (Waltzing) and swag (Matilda). When Banjo Patterson was writing the 'unofficial Australian national anthem ' in 1895 he was staying at Dagworth Station, a sheep and cattle station near Winton.
In the song, Believe, by Shawn Mendes, the explicit message is that you should always believe in yourself. This is shown when, in the first 8 lines of the song, It repeats, “ I believe, I believe, I believe, hey!”. This means that he believes in himself and others to achieve great things. Also, in the song, he sings, “Don’t be afraid to be what you are”. This is saying that no matter who you are, you should always be proud of yourself. The implicit message in this song is that you should always have courage no matter what, and to never let any obstacle overcome you, since “Everest is only a mountain” and “a pyramid is just a shape”. At one point, Shawn sings the line, “Who keeps tabs on stupid mistakes? We all mess up, but that’s just the way we learn how to get back up”. This means that making mistakes is okay, and it helps you to improve for when you do it again.
David Cook does it again with, "The Music of the Night" from "The Phantom of the Opera." Wow this guy is the real deal. He can sing anything like Randy says. Randy really needs to get some new material. He keeps saying the same things over and over again. And David deserves some better critiques than that. He never ceases to amaze me. Last week with the Mariah Carey song was awesome and this week he even excels at Broadway. I thought if any week for him to do bad or even just average, this would be the week. But no, not David Cook. He rearranges songs and flips them around to make them sound even better than they did when they were number one songs. Who does that? This boy is going places. He is definitely the most talented person to hit
Since books and movies are made for diffenrent audiences and tell the stoy in different ways the movie adaptation of a book always leaves out or changes parts of the story in the book.
is stupid because every patriot holds his own country to be the best of all whereas, obviously, only one country can qualify. It is immoral because it enjoins us to promote our country 's interests at the expense of all other countries and by any means, including war, and is thus at odds with the most basic rule of morality, which tells us not to do to others what we would not want them to do to us.
