    Music Appreciation

    • 2 Pages

    things I did not give second thoughts on before, and appreciated music more than ever. One of my favorite piece is Bach’s Little Fugue in G Minor, his music speaks to one’s soul. The Fugues are well known for using counterpoint and this piece stays true to their reputation. The same melodic motif is mostly repeated throughout the piece. However, the clever use of counterpoint creates interesting textures which are refreshing to hear. Another element that makes this piece so refreshing to hear is the fact that it uses rhythmic variety and syncopation…

    Lines of melodious music filled my ears as I listened to Clair de Lune by Claude Debussy shortly after my eleventh birthday. I imagined myself playing notes on a piano creating euphonious sounds. In that moment, I decided to ask my mother for piano lessons at our local music store. I do not regret that decision, but I long to redo what I did that Saturday after my first lesson. Elated by my mother’s approval, I signed up with a teacher named Floyd. That Saturday afternoon my mother and I sat…

    When I signed up to take music appreciation, I knew it would be the perfect class for me. I myself take up being a musician as a hobby, I’ve played the guitar for years and have a basic understanding of music in the world. I knew that music had deep history within its roots, but I always had a curiosity to learn a slice of that history which is exactly what this class did. Besides playing an instrument and make music, I also became very fond of listening to music as a hobby. I began to have a…

    I am a part-time orchestral conductor and percussionist. As a passionate musician, I always enjoy learning, practicing, performing, and appreciating music fascinating. Throughout my musical experience, I encountered a lot of thought-provoking questions. How did I receive and interpret information during each rehearsal? Why did repetitive practicing make it possible for me to play a repertoire without looking at music score? What made professional orchestra able to have less rehearsal than a…

    was in seventh grade when I decided to stop playing the piano. By then, I’ve already been taking lessons for around four years. I told my parents that music isn’t important, and making me take lessons is just a waste of money because I don’t even enjoy it. Little did I know about how big a role playing an instrument, or just music in general played during my high school years and my perspective on life. When I first started high school, my cousin (who was one year above me) told me to join…

    • 2 Pages

    Music has been a passion of mine for many years, and recently I was given the opportunity to further use this talent to help others. Almost a year ago, the lead pianist at my church moved, and I was asked to assume the post. Although I had been playing for the children and teen services for a few years, this new volunteer position—usually held by an adult with a music degree—required much more responsibility and maturity. I decided to accept the offer, and despite the challenges, the job has…

    The Importance of Appreciation Greediness and lack of appreciation can cause a person to lose what is most important. “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant, is a short story about a woman, Mathilde Loisel, who wants more than she has, and because of this she ends up in a state which was worse than beforehand. “Everyday Use” by Alice Walker, is about a woman, Dee, who visits her family and tries to take a quilt that would look good hanging in her home, but the quilt was promised to her younger…

    The Scream Poem Analysis

    • 721 Words
    • 3 Pages

    “The Scream” I really like this painting because somehow it involves mystery and insecurity and to my eyes, the rare views in it reflect a sense of how deep the feelings and thoughts of a person can be. In addition, the fact that the composition does not allow viewers to appreciate the face of the screaming person, is what has drawn me to it. Even though it seems to be that it was a lovely afternoon for everyone, it seems that it was not for the scared looking person. Although two boats are…
