In addition, I want to be able to use my experience and skills for effort into leading the band through competition season and achieving the goals that our band has set for each year. This position is definitely going to be a learning experience, just by trying-out, but receiving it will be a learning experience as a leader. I think the position will teach me how to gain confidence and learn to speak publicly about my thoughts in a positive way. Personality wise, I think it will teach me to be a better-rounded and speak to everybody in the band and get to know people better. I also think this position will teach me how to balance fun and work time to benefit the band.
Concert Critique – Dave Matthews Band - 31 August 2012 The Dave Matthews Band is one of the most popular touring bands in the United States of America and enjoys a huge following. The original members of the band are Dave Matthews (acoustic guitar/lead vocals), Carter Beauford (percussion, back-up vocals), Boyd Tinsley (violin), and Stefan Lessard (bass). Jeff Coffin (saxophone) joined the band in 2008 after founding member, LeRoi Moore died in 2008 from complications from a motor vehicle accident. Each summer, since the late 1990’s, The Dave Matthews Band embarks on a cross-country tour that draws hundreds of thousands of fans and loyal listeners. On August 31st, 2012, the band played an outdoor concert at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, Washington, playing a 25-song set, almost 3 hours in length.
They run from set to set repeatedly throughout the day, perfecting each movement of a performance. It's this sort of discipline that I feel much of our generation lacks, coasting through their lives doing as they please. The students who talk back to teachers, contest every piece of work assigned to them, bad-mouth anyone who disagrees with them, and generally act like fools, these are the ones that would be whipped into shape by a marching band. Respect is demanded, rules are upheld. Our generation would be far more respectful and disciplined with a greater presence of marching bands.
There are countless things that people have to do every single day in life so going college will help give you a better idea of what the definition of life really is. And the last reason why college matters is because it helps you interact with other people better. Communication plays a very important role every single day and a lot of employers rely on their employees to have sufficient communication skills. Some people tend to interact with people very well and others don’t. For the people who don’t interact with people well, college will give you the opportunity to enhance your communication skills for the real world.
I started singing in the choir when I was ten years old. I go to choir practice every Thursday and Saturday evening. The choir practice could last from one to two hours, when the church has a special occasion, choir practice can last up to four hours. I am one of the lead singers in the choir, the lead singers take turns at singing each Sunday. When it is my turn to sing, I will pick the songs that I want to sing and practice on it.
As it turns out that night and the wonder of going to my first concert was one of the most inspiring moments of my life. After waking up the morning after the show it seemed I couldn’t satisfy my lust for music. I started finding ways to listen to music whenever I could. Even during the short 3 block walk to school I had to have my walkman. For my ninth birthday all I asked for was more music.
Whereas, in Stanford studies, it was proved that the people with musical experience find it easier to spot small and tiny variances in world syllables than the inexperienced people in music. So, the moral of the story is music help people learn more efficiently and their brains grow faster. If people implement music in their lives positively, then nothing can stop them to be good, even the best learners. Music is an incredible power which can only be understood if implemented properly. In a condition when there is a final exam on the next day, and one is studying continuously for hours the day before and at last in the night he/she feels irritated and gets tired of studying, the thing which comes to mind is MUSIC.
This could mean working long hours, even not taking a much needed vacation. ”A lot of people believe if they do work less they’ll be seen as less committed, and in a shaky economy no one wants that”(Andrew Curry 2). According to Curry people are scared of losing a job because another one is so hard to come by. This in turn makes people feel they have to work long hours or they will be fired or forced to quite but working such long hours can mean losing out on a personal life. A real life example would be my girlfriend Summer who has worked at a restaurant since they opened.
Introduction Employee retention or employee turnover depends majorly on employee’s job satisfaction. In my observation people rarely leave job because they are satisfied and happy with it. There are some or other reasons which stimulate this action however can be viewed into either systematic or random situations leading to job change. Some systematic issues are poor growth avenues, uncaring or incompetent supervisor, subpar salary, poor benefits, company’s long term future/stability, workload distribution and poor company management. These issues are typically pre-existing which come to employees attention as he/she spends more time with the company.
You get an idea of time management because of the consequences you face for being tardy to class and knowing that being late several times could be considered an absence and affect your final grade. And even though college is difficult to do on its own, some people choose to work while attending school. Working while in college usually means more responsibility but also more means of supporting yourself and making yourself happy. While working a full time job you get to learn and experience different aspects of life, whether it be on your commute, at work or your social life, however, it can limit you in other areas. Having a part time job gives you more freedom but also limits your income, and therefore, limiting your standard of living and may even end up affecting your quality of life.
