Music blues reflection

I haven’t learn about blue music before.During these few weeks,I have learnt a lot about the history of Blue music,different kinds of instrument that blue music used,the melody of blue music and how to compose a piece of music.I love listening to blue music,my favourite blue music is “In The Mood”.I always hear the piece of music in the radio and I always wonder who played this piece of music.I started to listen to more Blues music since beginning this music.I talked to my parents of blue music and they told me they also love it.They used to listen to a lot of blue music.I enjoy playing blue music in class band because I can feel the mood of the song and everyone is so cooperate.I love playing the Blues Down Under song because the melody is good and everything is awesome!I sometime play as a Blues Soloist in band and I really enjoy it because everyone else are playing the different melody.I have written the blue music before.However I don’t enjoy writing it because it is so difficult for me.The best part of this unit is the root of blue because it is interesting.I didn’t know that blue songs are played by the African slaves.I thought it was made of the American because blue musics make people feel happy.

Year of the Horse Personal Reflection

I participated in the Year of the Horse CNY assembly performance and it was really fun.I get to playing my clarinet to many audiences.I enjoyed it a lot.But I hope there is fewer people performing so that there are more space on the stage,because I could hardly see the conductor and the audience.The t-shirt is in red with a yellow horse.I like it! Its kind of sharp and it really stands out when a group of people are wearing the same shirt.I also like the piece of music but it is kind of weird when using western instrument playing music which sounds Chinese. Instead of using western instrument,we should focus more on the drums and all other kind of Chinese instruments.

During the Year of the Horse CNY assembly rehearsals and performances, I learnt to co-operate with other clarinet players.We have to play the notes at the same time.I even make new friends through sharing the stand! I used to be very nervous and would shiver when I am performing or even speaking in front of the class.However,during the Year of the Horse CNY assembly performances,I was not longer nervous,I was really confident because I am really well-prepared.I practise the clarinet for four times a week.I also learn to always pay attention to the conductor when performing and it might helps to pick up on things that are going wrong.I think I have learnt the most during this unit!
