Throughout the entire course, I learned many different abilities that I never had before. Drama allowed me to break out of the shell that I once was in.

    Though I still have some work to do on fixing this weakness, it has assisted me in realizing that not everything is going to perfect and that you can only give it your best. Obviously, I have also learned that procrastination is not a very smart route to go down no matter what. But with every weakness, there is a strength.

    Skills Development The wide variety of mediums and structures I have displayed in each of my pieces has allowed me to develop new skills as well as hone skills I already had. The stress on basic performance strengths means that I have had the opportunity to really perfect them to a high standard while more unique styles of performance enabled me to learn new skills and incorporate them effectively where they are required. In reference to specific techniques I employed, choral speaking and synchronised gestures were a large part of my second piece as that was a spoken word poem adapted in certain ways to make it more suitable for the stage. An integral part of these techniques is refining our timing so we could say and move at the same time when we needed to while simultaneously keeping generally to the tune that we had playing on the piano so this was something I improved a lot. This piece was similar to a previous one I’ve done before style-wise so I understood from feedback how I could improve my performance.…

    It was a new experience for us because we had never sang new songs at Veteran’s day or even at one of our concerts. We did not know what to expect out of her this year. Mrs. Partain is full of so many surprises, she knows when to act funny, and when to be serious. During her first year, she had to write some people up, and she kicked some out of the classroom. I thought that we should all give her another chance to show that she really wanted to teach us and show us how to write solfege and how to read music without playing the piano.…

    Peyton went through many study strategies before she found the ones that work the best for her learning style. This taught me to try different things until you find what is right. As test and assignments became more demanding, I realized that failure could happen, and I had no way of dealing with it. I watched Peyton struggle and overcome this as well, and after a while I found it easier to accept disappointing outcomes. The way Peyton has showed me these things is not only by doing what is right, but by making mistakes and learning from them, helping me build my skills in school and as a problem…
