I found out singing is very entertaining thanks to Ms. Morrow. From the point on, I wanted to pursue vocal performance. She had opened so many more doors for me. The thing I found most fascinating was that she believed in me. My junior year, she helped me get over my stage fright by allowing me to sing a solo at "Winter Concert."
These are friendships that I may expect to maintain for a lifetime. I have talked a lot about what music education means to me, but there is proof that being musically inclined can help academic performance. As an example, since I have been in high school, either the valedictorian or the salutatorian has been involved in a music program. And if you look at the list of students who have been in the top 10% of their classes, you’ll find most have been involved in one music program or another. Music education isn’t just for friendships and relationships.
On Sunday October 26, 2008, I attended an orchestral concert at the Arkansas State University Fowler Center in Jonesboro, Arkansas. The concert was titled “The Delta Symphony Orchestra presents Music for a Lifetime Family Concert.” The Delta Symphony Orchestra played several songs as well as students from the Jonesboro Visual and Performing Arts Magnet School. The music played was all classical and orchestral. The Fowler Center venue was not very crowded. The majority of the seats were empty and the majority of the people entered the concert within five minutes of its start.
I successfully joined a discourse community of a music class to learn the skills of playing an electronic keyboard in my sophomore year of high school. I attended a seminar in our school conducted by a renowned institution known as The Trinity College of London. The Trinity College of London offers graded musical qualifications in performing arts, musical theory and for performance in electronic keyboards, piano, violin, and many other musical instruments. Having a soft corner for music since childhood, I decided to opt for their class as I thought this to be the perfect platform to enhance my skills in an art form that I was passionate about. Moreover, the class took place in one famous music college that was just a few blocks away from my school.
Miss Jade, along with her four member band, the Jadetts were about to, as she put it “embark on a three hour journey to the land of feel good.” The performance, part of an annual Easter celebration hosted by aunt’s church featured the five girls experimenting with not only traditional Jazz, but also a modern Hip Hop/Punk infused approach to Jazz. Certain songs featured just the saxophone and the drum set, which the obvious influence seemed to be the Roots, while a central component to other songs was the drums accentuated by the guitar, which
Her first album for the label, Blossom Dearie Sings, was followed by a two-record set entitled My New Celebrity Is You, which contained eight of her own compositions. The album's title song was especially written for her by Johnny Mercer, and is said to be the last piece he wrote before his death in 1976. During the 70s, Dearie performed at Carnegie Hall with former Count Basie blues singer Joe Williams and jazz vocalist Anita O'Day in a show called The Jazz Singers. In 1981 Blossom appeared with Dave Frishberg for three weeks at Michael's Pub in Manhattan. Frishberg, besides being a songwriter, also sang and played the piano, and Dearie frequently performed his songs, such as “Peel Me A Grape”, “I'm Hip” and “My Attorney Bernie”.

Hey, I'm sure you are wondering what this letter is all about. The truth of the matter is I need your help. I'm a Disney girl at heart I've been in love with it pretty much since the day I was born. On top of this my new found love is Colorguard. I invest hundreds of hours a year into it, and every two years I get the opportunity to take a trip with my highschool marching band to somewhere special.
He was the son of Louis Kirstein and was raised in Boston, Massachusetts. Kirstein’ first attendance of a ballet performance was at the age of twelve when Anna Pavlova came to Boston in 1920 (“Lincoln Kirstein 1907-1996”). Ballet became Kirstein’s passion. After seeing a musical with his sister and father, he wrote in his journal, “Nothing does [fill the demands of my heart and eye] like the ballet (qtd. from Kristanits).” Kirstein visited London during the summer of his junior year at Harvard and went to a Diaghilev ballet seven times in ten evenings.
Music Appreciation Music 10 Dates: Nov. 04, 2012 Mission College Symphony: Winter Journey The first concert that I attended was when I was in high school, but I was part in it. I was actually one of the choirs performing and so this is basically the first concert that I’ve watched and listen to as an audience.

The tenor sings with low to high to a very loud dynamic then low again like a wave.
