I was asked by my choir teacher to join the school’s music enrichment, Advanced Singers. This was the year that music was helping me break out of my shell of being that shy person.

My grandpa, when I was little, always used to sing around the house and to the kids to make us laugh. It had always made me feel the same way I do today-that even if you do not sound like the world's greatest singer, you can still sing and do what you love to do. As for my music teachers, Mr. Howe is the one that got me started playing the trumpet, as well as the piano and the guitar when I was a child growing up in the Mulvane school system. He was not necessarily the best at teaching the high school classes in the school, but he definitely was good at getting the new players (the fifth-graders) started out fresh, and I am very grateful for the fact

Although he and his family celebrated his birthday on 16 December, there is no evidence to suggest that this was his exact date of birth, with only the registry of his baptism on the 17th serving as the commonly accepted birth date of this legendary composer.

Throughout high school I have been very involved in my choir program. Music has always inspired and intrigued me. I decided to audition for Colorado All-state choir my junior year. I had to learn a solo and practice many other aspects of being a well-rounded vocalist.

If swing and bebop were movie characters, swing would be the energetic, organized sibling who gets voted for prom queen, while bebop would be the defiant younger sibling who hangs out with the wrong crowd after school. Swing became so formulaic and predictable that artists needed a new creative outlet for their emotions. This is how bebop emerged, as a criticism and rebellion “against the populist trappings of swing music” (Gioia, 187). In the 1940’s bebop matured as a style in New York City, where influential artists such as Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, and Miles Davis mastered their craft while playing at locations such as Minton’s Playhouse in Harlem, 52nd Street, and San Juan Hill. New York City became a hub for African-American artistic culture starting back in the 20’s with the Harlem Renaissance.
