Introduction: Ethnomusicologist Dr. Ashok Ranade has described folk music as music of people, by people and for people. He has centred the entire definition of music around people which shows the importance of audience in folk music. Songs sung by people since generations which have percolated down to other generations is a vital element. These songs are “by people” which shows that these songs were written and composed by common people who did not have any knowledge of classical music. While Rabindranath Tagore has described it is music created by masses in excitable way in shaping the melodies in excitable language.
Soon after this Segovia began to realise the guitar’s shortcomings in the realm of classical music. Hence, he outlined his ambitions “To extract the guitar from the noisy and disreputable folkloric amusements” and make it known all over the world … “To create a wonderful repertoire for my instrument” … “[and] to place the guitar in the most important conservatories of the world … Thus securing its future” (Gorman, 2008). The influence Segovia had on the guitar can be best recognised within four specific areas of repertoire, technique, publications and the media. Segovia had a great influence on the
Elvis was looked at in both positive and negative opinions due to his gyrating hips and how they were too sexual and some videos of him dancing had to be of only his waist up. Presley chose not to get affected by the people’s opinions and decided to express himself no matter what others thought. This inspired people of all ages and taught them that you can express yourself in anyway you want. Elvis was named The King of Rock and Roll, but the name wasn’t just given to him, it was earned. Elvis had several life accomplishments that helped him earn the title, because of this Elvis had a large impact on America when it came to being an inspiration and knowing how to ignore the hate in the world.
The both music I chose is the music that I have played in orchestra by violin before. Symphony No.2 is the one that I played as concertmistress that I have emotional attachment to the song itself too. I found an interest on romantic nationalistic music on the use of variety of the instruments by emotional and expressive way. Both music contains the folk song elements and especially L’Arlesienne has the drama too. It have been a decade since I learned these music, but its catchy melodies still sticks in my head.
The girls had dolls to play with and the boys would play a game called Anejodi, a stick-ball game that is now known as lacrosse. Within the Cherokee tribe, they would host intriguing ceremonies and perform rituals. One famous ritual that is known by many is the stomp dance. A firekeeper begins to light a fire at dawn that will last for the duration of the stomp dance. The fire is a sacred symbol to the Cherokees and is built at the bottom of a pit so that the fire will not burn out.
When watching the video in class, I felt overwhelmed by an unspeakable emotion. After I shared my experience with one of my friends studying sociology, I learned this concept from him. “Group effervescence” was a concept raised by Émile Durkheim, which is used to describe the circumstance that “a community or society may at times come together and simultaneously communicate the same thought and participate in the same action.”(Durkheim) This kind of sense of identity really unite people together. With the world-famous Symphony No. 9 composed by Beethoven, I believe it will connect people with different backgrounds and different age by the same intimate
It is also important to develop speaking and listening skills together because most of the time in real life these skills are needed at the same time. In addition to speaking, teachers can ask students practice writing a topic related to the listening. Thus, combining those skills will help prepare students for listening situations in real life where several skills often need to be used simultaneously. Harmer (2007) suggests “live listening” can be applied for listening lesson instead of using audio material story-telling, interviews, and conversations. Adding to that, Doff mentions that “using English for chatting to the class, for giving instructions and explanations” will provide students with very useful listening practice.
Meanwhile the content of traditional art are almost about the history, tradition and customs of Vietnam. So traditional art in here can play a role like a teaching history tool. Teachers can mainstream learning history via books with learning by performing Cheo, Tuong, Cai Luong plays. For example, when learn about Hai Ba Trung, Cai Luong has a very famous play called Tieng Trong Me Linh, teacher should watch the plays then write a script for students to act, after atcing that play i believe that all of them will remember all the things related to Hai Ba Trung and Tieng Trong Me Linh this historical
PSYCHOLOGY A Study on the Effects of Music on Problem Solving Behavior Institute of Business Management Amna Nasir, Madiha Hussain, Moosir Jumani, Zain Khan, Zair Zaki. 11/27/2014 Effects of music on behaviors have been widely documented.

Music is a universal language as it is accepted by the whole world even though some of us might not understand the physical language of the music that they are listening to. There are a variety of music genres for people to choose ranging from pop, rock, bop, techno, swing, rhythm and blues, hip hop, folk music, and many others including my personal favourite, jazz. Being the only daughter in the family with more male cousins than females had made my music preference a little bit different from the other girls that I came across. When I was a kid, I was a bit boyish with baggy pants and shirt up to the point whereby my big brother and I (which is five years older than I am) can share outfit due to my new found love of hip hop music. Due to that, I did not make a lot of
