Being a leader in my band provides me with a sense of pride. Working as a group is a huge challenge, but in the end, it is worth it to put on a spectacular performance.

To be able to achieve a superior rating at these contests, one must practice every week.
Even though part of his inspiration came from personal problems, he proves that no matter what happens in life always continue and follow your dreams. Tchaikovsky’s music has inspired me to go beyond the notes and play the piece musically as well as to determine what the composer was feeling and experiencing during the compositional process. Due to his extraordinary work, Tchaikovsky has helped me develop my own creative and intellectual skills in an entirely different way. He has increased my respect for composers and artists. Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky may very well be one of the greatest composers of all time.
It shows how he struggled while he was alive to earn for his family and profit off of his music. Like so many great artists of his time, he only was able to gain fame and fortune posthumous. You see a role that his family may have played in not only helping but also hindering in his writing of music. And most importantly it shows off his expertise in the understanding of music, one point in the movie depicting Mozart writing an entire symphony in his head. The movie showed the Classical Spirit typical to that commonly associated with late 1700’s Europe.
He started his career when he was hired by the Esterhazy family, giving him the chance to write and compose symphonies and conduct orchestras. Also known as the Father of the Symphony or String Quartet, he invented the idea of sonatas (History Reference Center 1). His best known piece, the Emperor Quartet, was so well written that it was the national anthem of Austria until the end of World War I. without the guidance of the Esterhazy family and the chance to write and compose, Haydn’s career would not have been as influencing. Haydn was an ideal man of the Enlightenment. He had a great sense of humor, and loved playing jokes on his friends.
Before this music was made, there are conflicts going on with World War II and then after that people are started to think that they should celebrate it with joy and honor to the countries that were saved. So, to them writing music is something that was symbolic to them, and it is especially great when it comes to that. That’s why; Aaron Copland started to work on his Symphony No. 3 commissioned by a conductor Serge Koussevitzky and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. This ends up becoming Copland’s word that would “reflect the euphoric spirit of the country at the time”.
When he had dreams of greatness, he didn’t hesitate one bit to share with his brothers and dad. Because he was the most adored and had awesome dreams, his siblings got very jealous and eventually tried getting rid of him. As he got older, Joseph learned a lot through a lot of painful experiences. His positive responses to hardships kept him moving forward, he didn’t spend time asking why things happened to him; he did what was right and those who watched

His father made sure that all of his children were tutored at an early age. In addition to his studies he also learned music, it was one of his passions. Patrick Henry, a fellow violinist, became close friends with Jefferson despise their opposite
One of the most important aspects is preserving my friendships. Ellington was so close and acknowledged of his friends and band-members that he was able to compose music that fit their personalities. This goes to show that he spent many hours getting to really know these people and built a strong bond with them. His story has taught us that the more friends we have the better, because we all can benefit from having more friends. Ellington has also taught me that it is okay if things get tough but at the end its how tough we are that define whether or not we can succeed accomplish our career and study
If the goal was to win over the crowd then it passed because they performed crowd pleasers, was synchronized for the most part, and gave the crowd something to remember. You can never go wrong with performing old school jams during halftime at a Historically Black College or University (HBCU). Tennessee State University’s Aristocrat of Bands is known for their song choices and unique formation. Senior Day held up to that title.
