December Response


Discuss your practise routines and development on your instrument. *
My routine practises the scale first according to the scale book that I have in my home. The scale is for practising the basic fingering and knowledge for the instrument that I have. Then I will practice some of my exam or concert songs. This is because I need to perform very well i8n the exam and the concert that we have. Then I might practise the sight-reading skill that I might need to read a new piece of music that comes. At last, I will play some long notes to make me can hold my breath longer, and it will improve the stability of the note, which means there will not be any weird sounds.
How successful were you at your theory test? Discuss the concepts that you did not master. *
I was very successful at my theory test due to I did not make any mistake during the test. I think that the concepts that I did not master are harmonic and melodic minors. It took a bit longer than the rest of the question that was in the test. I improve this situation by playing more minor at home insteads of majors.
What are your strategies to improve results in the subsequent months? *
Following the routine that I have made, I improve the skill of scale that I have compared to the start of the year. Now for saxophone, I can play my majors and minor fluently for most of the time, and for the songs, I can do better dynamics but not only loud noises, which is a big improvement. Still, I can do my sight-reading much easier if the piece doesn’t have a complicated melody and scale. However, for the harder ones, I was still not able to play it fluently. And lastly, for the long notes, I can hold longer and the note doesn’t have that much less weird sounds that before.
How do you show the IB Learner Profile in the music class? *
I think that I have shown the balanced IB learner profile in the music class. This is because of 1. I can play my music fluently(In my opinion), and have shown the ability to do a good job in theory. This shows the balanced for in the sense of music. Because I have demonstrated a good theory skill and a-okay playing skill in class.
