My Current Skills

As a musician, I am currently improving my abilities before I release my own work as I want it to be made at a high standard. However, I am able to reflect and see the skills that have helped me advance at the rate that I have. I am in a good mindset in terms of wanting to learn, perform and create, and this will lead to greater things with the quality of my music. I am willing to do the work that is required for me to improve my specialist, employable, and study skills so that one day I will be able to work within the music industry.

I learnt these skills by studying at home from watching tutorial videos and through practicing within the software.

I am able to write my own lyrics for my music and try to improve this skill by going over lyrics I have written previously and improving them by making the message more subtle and adding synonyms that fit better. I have to make sure the lyrics fit with the mood that I am trying to achieve, whether they be irregular and harsh or fluid and gentle.

I understand how to get my work out there and how to manage several social media pages due to my experience with using social media over the years. I have explored how some of my favourite artists developed their careers and I see other acts who are trying to get exposure go routes that are more successful than others.

Being in a music college means I am around people who are helping to advance each other’s aspirations so I have access to guidance and support that will help me improve my skills. If i require help with an issue I will have no problems finding somebody that could help me resolve

I like to watch videos or listen to somebody teaching and write down explanations that make sense to me. Through writing, I feel that I learn faster so I usually take notes several times on the same topic to make sure I understand that area of study to an excellent standard. I never end up writing the same thing each time as I usually write most about what I have trouble remembering and overtime this changes. This helps with college work and for improving my own abilities as I have easy access to information that is clear as I wrote it myself in a way that I will understand as well as it being a faster learning

    I learned a tremendous amount of useful information throughout the entire semester. It has helped me change and grow from my old perspective, behavior, and conflict styles. This class has made me more self aware of myself in so many positive ways. I wish I could write down everything I had learned, but my list is too huge, so I had to narrow it down. This class not only made me self aware of myself, but it made me self aware of others communication styles, emotions, and thought processes.…

    As I entered AP Language and Composition, I felt confident and excited because I have always enjoyed English. I knew going into the class that it would include writing several papers, but I have enjoyed writing since I was younger; however, some of the writings are more difficult than others. For example, I seem to struggle with synthesis writings, whereas I tend to do well on argumentative writings. I already had an idea as to what I would learn and do throughout the class because I had spoken with students who took it last year, but I did not expect some of the writings to be difficult, or the Capstone paper to be stressful. I felt a little discouraged and agitated at times, but my confidence has grown because I did better than I thought…

    Basically, every time we’ve done emulation exercises, we’ll respond to our classmates. By reading others work, I believe that’s the way that I can inspire by others ideas, but not limit in my own thinking. When I’m not in the zone, sometimes my mind can be really narrow, and that can’t create great writing. So reading others’ work and learning their skills is a good way of improving my own skills. I remember there’s a time that we…

    I’ve been able to relate to topics discussed in class, identified improvements and weaknesses from one paper to the next as well as began to use outside resources that helped with my writing overall. To begin, starting a writing prompt I noticed that I had retained a lot of information that I had put into papers by studying it day after day.
