Riptide Music Assesment

Discuss the following creative decisions you made for your song choice…


How is your recording the same as the original song? Why did you do this? *
My recording is the same in a few ways. It uses the ukulele, singing, piano, a similar tempo and the same key signature. The reason for the first 3 was because as well as fitting the song well they are required fro this assessment. As for the similar tempo if I did anything else i just couldn’t get it to sound right so i choose a tempo not exactly the same but quite similar. This is definitely good because then it can sound as close to the real thing as possible but with the differences it sounds unique as well which is a perfect conversation


How is your recording different compared to the original song? What were your reasons behind your decisions? *
Mine is different from the original song in many ways as well. Ways like diffrent style of singing, and In my recording there where some pauses The biggest diffrence was that I made my singing diffrently from the original song and I was quite a bit slower.  This definetly helped because I could go at my own pace.

Discuss the following skills in relation to your Ukulele song choice…


Ukulele Skills… *
I am finding that I am getting better on ukulele that the last time that I played it. I can play for longer periods of time and are also more adapt to it so that it sounds better most of the time. I think that in the future i will be better than i am now but i don’t think that i can really be the best.


Garageband editing – digital instrument, drum use… *
I have gotten better but i am not the best at editing when it comes to GarageBand. The reason for this is because i am not very good with music and i cant edit things because it is quite tricky. But that dosent change the fact that i still think that i improved during the time i was using garageband


Time management for your project… *
I thought that I didn’t manage my time well on this project. Despite people warning me that there was not a lot of time i slacked of and didn’t so much work until the last second of the project. In the future i will make sure that i do it early so that i am not in a big rush to get everything done.


Independent learning… (responsibility of getting things done on time) *
I thought that though I didn’t manage time properly I still handed things in on time but I probably wont get the best grades because of this and I really should of handed things in on time and unfortunately this might lower my grade.

Exhibtion Reflection

It has been a few weeks since I did my exhibition which is if you did not know is my big into grade 7 project. what I did well overall is I always stayed on task I used the time outside of the class effectively to plan the exhibition and plan my action. I demonstrated my journey really well and at presentation, I provoked a lot of thought and interest. what I could improve was a presentation of my process journal and organising my process journal.

Weekly Reflection 8/2/2019

Hello Everyone,

This week I had a leadership program called LEAP so I learned a bunch this week about everything to do with leadership. This week the most important thing I learned this week was that being a leader is not being at the top it is being at the bottom helping everyone. At leap no one is not appreciated everyone is helping other people to move up and be better than before.

Weekly Reflection

This week has been a very busy week. This week I feel like I learned a lot. for example, I learned that nuclear power is not a renewable source and that to split the atom you have to use a very rare type of uranium called u-235. this has also been a second meeting with our learning cohorts. I like leaning cohorts because it is a very good opportunity to get more resources and find possible resources. I find this very helpful when I get suggestions that might be able to help me to learn more about my exhibition and improve my work. One thing that I learned was that there are tons of types of energy that I have never heard of such as tidal energy, biomass energy and geothermal energy. I have also learned that there are tons more renewable energy then there are not renewable.

Thank you for reading my post
