  • Elementary School Physical Education Observation

    I along with 8 other of my classmates were able to go and visit Hillcrest Elementary School in Enterprise, Alabama. The purpose of observing Hillcrest was to observe elementary school physical education. Most people think that physical education teachers are not ver important in the school system. Most think they just let their students run around and play. When observing Mrs. Weeks who was the head physical education teacher nothing of the sort came into play. She incorporates classroom rules, structure, and safety. Her activity plan for the day was nothing less of learning and fun. Classroom rules, activities, learning experience, equipment, and the assessment are all the tools we were able to observe at Hillcrest. Hillcrest Elementary School is a great place for kids to learn and develop in physical education. The activity scheduled had an objective that was to allow the students to work on their rhythm along with including physical activity. The equipment used for the students to carry out this objective were crates, balls, drum sticks, pool noodles (cut to the size of drumsticks), computer, speakers, and projector. The classroom was set up with the small balls in the front of the classroom sitting on the floor with drum sticks. Behind the two horizontal rows of the small balls there were crates and on top of the crates or buckets were bigger medicine balls with drum sticks/ pool noodles. The computer was used to pull up videos of an example of the movements the…

    it might be able to flip the situation around in the real world, as it did with my Junior Districts audition.

  • Music Education Autobiography

    The staff of the drumline was inconsistent and changed every year, and all the pit instructors happened to be college students who did drumline in high school and were inexperienced teachers. During my senior year, our pit instructor was only able to show up to half of the rehearsals, and did not do much to help us improve while she was there. In previous years, I had helped teach the rookies some technique tips and helped them memorize their music, but by senior year, I was forced to take on a…

When I was a little kid, I always played with different toys of mine that either ran on batteries, or that plugged into an electrical socket and/or took my toys apart so see how they worked. So, from that moment…

  • Percussionist Analysis

    first long-term goal. In my school, there were only three percussionists in my grade and if one of us quit it would've killed the rhythm section in the band, so we all vowed never to quit. I took that vow extremely seriously and remembered it whenever I felt like giving up in the years to come. Likewise, in 5th grade, the high school jazz band performed at my school and totally blew me away, so I made a long-term goal and promised myself that I would one day be in that band. Finally making the…
