    Seminar 1 Reflection Questions To make our time together as productive and efficient as possible, please reflect on the following questions and email your responses to Dr. West and Dr. Clauhs by Tuesday, 9/13. 1. How much of your teaching opportunity/experience is indeed student-centered? Why? Since this is Block 1 and the beginning of the school year, a lot of the first few days of school has involved work outside of playing music and rehearsing, including things such as organizing the band room, assembling music and folders, and going over handbooks and general classroom rules and regulations. Teaching at the school year really made me realize how much a band director has to do outside of actually teaching the students. A lot goes into preparation to ensure smooth, organized rehearsals, and most of the time, no matter how much you do to prepare, something will still go wrong. After a few days of administrative work and “boring band director stuff,” all of the ensembles are now playing in their rehearsals. I started working with the percussion sections in both periods of Concert Band, which is an ensemble made up of only freshmen. I have also observed my co-op as he works with the freshmen woodwind and brass sections during both periods in setting up a routine and working tone quality, balance, blend and intonation. I just started conducting the Wind Ensemble, which is the highest-level ensemble at the high school, and the Symphonic Band, working on warm-ups and one…

    surrounded by friends but feeling so alone, I pondered at all the possibilities "maybe I qualified for state or maybe I didn't" I kept thinking. I could hear the blasting of horns and the beating of drums in the distance, strangely though I was surrounded by sound and vibrations I still managed to tune it out. For some reason to me sitting in that one seat became almost my own little bubble filled with self doubt while at the same time a shred of hope. It felt like chaos and anarchy reigned in…

    Stick To Flute Analysis

    • 650 Words
    • 3 Pages

    “Stick to flute” is something I’ve heard from a few people while I was trying new things. Mr. Briem, one of the band teachers, took this the opposite direction and started me on a path to unknowingly end up like him. He encouraged me to explore music; that encouragement drove me in my first three years of high school to develop my musical skills. Briem introduced me to the potential I had for growing musically. He saw something in me that no one else did, and I didn't know at the time, but I’d…

    Also the clarinet players had the stereotype of being the nerdy type of people. Even though some say they are skilled. So I decided to ask Oliver and Sandy Cartagena about their opinions. I first sat down with Oliver Cartagena, since I wanted to know what his perspective was about band before talking with Sandy. We are in his outside patio sitting across from each other. I started off by asking him, Can you tell me what grade you are in, and what instrument do you play? Also how long you have…

    At one point in their career, most music students are met with a rather difficult choice: whether to join concert band or a symphonic orchestra. While both are ensembles with a conductor that play music arranged into different parts together, there are several important differences to take note of when deciding which one fits each musician perfectly. First of all, not every instrument is represented in every ensemble. A concert band, often called symphonic wind band, consists, as the name…

    “[Playing the guitar] gives me something to do, it puts my emotions out … it’s just something with the mind that clicks,” said Kershaw.

    every single week I improved immensely and eventually arrived at a respectable level. One of my favorite things my Ms. Allen had me do was compose a piece for my recital each year. I was always writing on my own, and with her direction I learned how to put it down on paper. Up until then, I hadn't found my niche in the music world. Composition was everything I wanted to do in one word, and I had finally found it. I started composing all the time. Being in the school band, helped a…
