I used to make the drum beats with my help of my friend, who is good at drums. However, now I had to use my own effort to create a good drum beat. With this link, I learned how to make a decent drum beat. I had to make the beats repetitive, because I actually had no idea how to make more continuous beats.

This information seemed to be for band groups, but by reading this, I learned how to end the song. The link said to change the texture of the song. The number of instruments you can hear playing at the end can increase to the whole band or decrease to just vocals, but I decided to use a single melody instead of vocals, because it sounded a bit empty with the vocal-ish instruments.

This link helped me understand how to control the mood of my song. My goal is to make a relaxing but also a bouncy song, so I needed to learn how to control the mood and atmosphere to get the right feeling that I want. If this fails, my song will be very boring or too exciting, therefore I needed to be careful.
Hopes and Liquorice
I used 4 sounds from school: Scissors, Zipper, Mr.Lee saying “8E needs more liquorice”, and a part of a drum. Sorry for making it a little bad 🙁
I hate my voice but I still recorded it.
Okay, this will be a familiar song for you guys. Enjoy!
(Used a bit of reverb effects.)
I don’t like songs like dubstep, so I decided to make a bright music. I wish you guys like it because I am not confident with this.
Our first fine arts subject was drama, which I was not confident about. I was not sure about acting. I think I could have improved on drama because I did not get good grades on it. It was hard for me to get them because first, I lacked details for the summatives writing about modern melodrama. If I tried more harder and explained better, I could have gotten better grades on drama. On the performances I got grades that were okay, but I think I could have done better by being more confident on my performance. Overall, I could have done much better at drama.
