It began slowly and included a few lines sung by Andrew Wall and Hayo Eiben, but the tempo quickly increased with a sound mimicking the crack of a whip and jingle bells provided by high school percussionists Cassie Gillmore and Anna Loes.

There they began to dance a more traditional ballet combination full of arabesques and gleesides. Their arms were still very proper, stretching out and up, moving from first to third, but more elegant and graceful than their previous joyful hops. From here the music changed again, this time to a more ominous tone as the dancers moved to the upstage right corner and clumped together. Their movements were slow but deliberate as they folded on top of each other, wrapping their arms around the other performers. As they slowly rolled up their arms moved in bizarre ways, bending and twisting in motions very different to the previous classical ballet inspired portion of the piece.
Thus rebelling against the existing structures in the jazz world. The first notable style “bebop” was so difficult for white musicians to copy and too intricate for dancing, forced audiences to sit up and listen and take note of who and what was being played. It was an underground movement not seeking commercial success but rather seeking another type of gratification, self expression.

One of the main people who influenced Bartolommeo was Giovanni Francesco, Giovanni was a very good friend of Leonardo DA’ Vinci so naturally he and Leonardo had similar thoughts on many people that they met. One of those thoughts was that they both hated the talented young sculptor of the time; Michelangelo. Many people who have studied Baccio and his life have realized that in his notebooks he writes about how he loathes Michelangelo and everything about him, but there also seems to be a hint of jealousy in his writing. Bandinelli was taught how to hate the amazing sculptor with a burning passion, but somewhere along the line it looked like Baccio stopped hating the sculptor and started obsessing about him and his work. After awhile of people dismissing and ignoring Bandinelli’s small wax sculptures, he finally had enough of it and started to put less time on his small structures and began to try and build gargantuan sculptures so that people would actually look twice at his work and realize that he was a very talented artist.

Baroque music is a style of western art music. It was followed after the Renaissance music and was followed in turn by classical music. It emerged in the seventeenth century as a shorthand notation for keyboardists who were accompanying a soloist or small ensemble performing a work originally composed for a larger group.

The Baroque period saw the creation of tonality and an approach to writing music in which a song or piece is written in a particular key.
His deafness eventually caused him to make sacrifices in his music career. During the last ten years of Beethoven’s life, he became completely deaf. However, he persisted his musical career. He had to retire from performing as a musician, but he still worked as a composer. Even though he sustained his career as a musician, his inability to hear impacted the style of his music.
