Mr. Holland’s Opus Mr. Glenn Holland is a musician and composer who also obtained his teaching certificate as a “fallback” plan if his music career didn’t work out. He ends up taking a teaching job to pay the rent. In his 'spare time', he hopes to achieve his true dream - to be a famous composer of some of the greatest symphonies ever heard. Teaching isn’t a fallback career, it is a lifestyle. As Mr. Holland discovers, “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans”, and as the years unfold the joy of sharing his contagious passion for music with his students becomes his new definition of success.
He composed many brilliant music works such as Bolero, Piano concert for the left hand and so on. Compare to other famous musician such as Franz Schubert who had a lot of completed relationships with other women, Ravel was not famous for his personal life, and seldom people knew his intimate relationships. He remained a mystery of his personal life. I wonder what his real life in 1923 and how he could compose so much innovative music. After a while, I decided to have a meeting with Ravel because I was really curious about the piece he composed called Le Tombeau de Couperin which was completed in 1914.

Franz vowed then, and there to be the pianist version of Paganini. Already an accomplished composer, Franz took time off from concerts to work tirelessly day in and day out until he emerged, a few years later, as the greatest pianist of his time. Liszt created sounds from the piano as if an orchestra were playing them, and he had remarkable finger dexterity; works such as Douze Grandes Etudes and Paganini Studies show off his amazing talent on the piano. He was an excellent showman. His work encompassed the use of bold leaps, and extreme dynamics.
Aside from constantly arguing with her brother, she is raising a child on her own. And she is using this child to keep the spirits of the piano alive. “I want you yo help me, I want you to help me Mama Berniece, I want you to help me Mama Esther, I want you to help me Papa Boy Charles, I want you to help me Mama Ola.” These are the people carved into this sacred piano, and although Berniece had tried to give the spirits a rest by not playing the piano in years, but by having her daughter play, August Wilson proves that parts of her didn’t want to let go of the soul of the piano. And when she finally comes face to face with her fears of the piano, and plays this song, it seems life flowed back into her body. Before all of this happened, however, she claimed that she lived at the bottom of life.

Sorry about the negative diction I am professing towards math, but the truth is that I lost my love for it year’s ago―with the help of horrible instructors. Geometry always fascinated me and it was more interesting than Algebra. When I failed AP Geometry I was not surprised, but rather hurt because when I looked over the year I actually came to the understanding that I did not learn much. The only important piece of information in AP Geometry I learned were how to associate the differences between each type of triangle, calculate supplementary and commentary angles. Through my ability to comprehend a few vital components of Geometry in my freshman year I knew that when I retook the course during my junior year many of the assignments would be familiar.
