After seven years of playing the violin, I can proudly say that music has become a part of me.Throughout my experience with playing the violin, there has been one individual who has helped shape the person I am. Providing the enduring teachings that will shape me into a greater human being, this person deserves the utmost respect for establishing my interest in the violin and in music. For the sake of this story, he will be referred to as Maestro Johnson. If I had a ticket that could take me anywhere, I would use it to go back in time to the time when Maestro Johnson was my musical advisor. With humble beginnings, which was common among the students in my middle school, I never expected myself to devote blood and sweat into an instrument such
This was a major accomplishment for her because not many blacks, at the time, won awards like she did. Many people would say that being black is bad but this one Scandinavian read about a concert that Anderson was putting on and said “Ah, a Negro singer with a Swedish name! She is bound to be a success in Scandinavia”. Anderson was putting her name on the map. Because this Scandinavian liked her voice, he encouraged his friends to hear her as well;they liked her voice too and she became very famous and popular in the Scandinavian territories.
Perhaps others upon being anointed King would have flaunted their new status, but not David. He remained humble and dedicated and that was exactly why he was chosen as King. After David became King he would not stop playing the harp and was a responsible and courageous leader in defense of his people. The story of this warrior-poet-musician would live on forever and he would become perhaps the most famous King of all time. This all began in a field in Beit
This adheres to me because of my connection to music. Music has been a valued part of my life since I was very young and has continued to grow to be a personal necessity since then. It has always served as a calming outlet and a relaxing activity. I see myself as a classical musician that has appreciation for all forms of music. From Bach to Tchaikovsky to Hazo (all of whom are classical composers), I feel the connection to their music and find that the classical music they produce says more than words and is able to tell a story with unlimited emotion.
Even though, it is hard training for this triathlon I think this will be a good experience for me. My coach has taught me to aim higher in life and to try new things you would never expect to do. Now I have different mindset towards things and enjoy challenging myself. Stage 3: The Return The return in a hero's journey, is when the hero has came back to the everyday life. The hero will be at a higher spiritual level and have all the gifts gained from the journey.
I would like to sing, dance, and even pretend to be playing an instrument. I was always fascinated with music and how it affected people in many ways. In the third grade, I heard my school orchestra play and I knew right of way that I wanted to play the violin. So when fifth grade came along I fell in love with playing the violin, and to this day I still do. Something about playing instruments feels so right in my heart and soul.
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 know that having a future means that I will move forward in time, but the rest is unknown. It’s a good thing, though, because that way, the mystery serves as motivation for me to work harder, even if it’s just to see what my life will turn out to be. I see the best part of having a future is just knowing that you can reach higher and bigger goals in life, meet new people, acquire more information, etc. A “future” is a little ambiguous to me. Just thinking about it, however, gets me hyped up because I already have high hopes for myself!
The transforming moment I experienced did not just happen on its own. It was supported by the encouragement of my middle school music teacher. Looking back at that particular moment also made me realize how influential music educators can be to their students which ideally steered me towards the path of becoming a music educator. When I was in middle school I realized that music had to be a part of my life right away, but I did not realize that my music teacher had such an impact on my life choices until now. Everyone has at least one transformative moment in their life yet it can happen at any moment without them even realizing
I had been in band from fifth grade through high school so even just hearing an ensemble sound again was amazing as I miss band very much. I also really enjoyed The Swan Lake Suite as it has been one of my favorite pieces since I was little, so it was also really nice to hear something that I already knew a little of how it would go. The orchestra sounded amazing and I am also good friends with one of the bassoon players so it was neat that one of our concerts to choose from had someone I knew in it. It was so interesting to hear all of the elements we have been discussing in class, actually in person and it was helpful that I was in band throughout school so it was easier to pick out certain aspects like melody, tempo, and dynamics for example. Overall, this concert was very enjoyable and performed
