Every song is beautiful in its own way, because it is an expression of human emotion. I used to take piano lessons for a couple years, but I had to quit because life was very busy, and it still is. I can play a few good songs on piano, but I never really became good at playing like my brother. My brother is quite the piano player. I started to teach myself guitar at the beginning of my senior year in high school, but as I said my life has been quite hectic, and I am not good at practicing regularly.
I joined choir at the beginning of my senior year as well, and that has been one of the most amazing experiences I have ever been through. The songs we sing in choir are all very beautiful, and something about all of the excellent, talented voices in the room singing in unison sends chills down my spine. I am not too good at reading music and singing the note straight from the sheet music, however. I need to hear the notes played on piano to sing it correctly. It also takes me a while to read the notes and name which note they are and what key the music piece is in.
Though I am not too good at reading music, I am very good at listening to it. Then again, who isn’t? I enjoy listening to many different types of music. Music like funk rock gets me into that sort of mood where I just feel good. It’s not a feeling of happiness, but more like a feeling of enjoying myself at the time. Punk rock can make me feel sort of pumped up and ready to roll. Classical rock is a music genre that I like to listen to when I am happy, and it keeps me feeling happy as I listen to it.
Indie rock usually gives me a feeling of happiness as well, but it’s also motivational to me. It makes me feel like I can take on the world and overcome my future challenges. I love listening to different types of music, because they affect my mood in many different ways. Sometimes they can help me feel better and sometimes they help me think. This is one of the musical concepts that I am very interested in. The way that music affects our minds is so astonishing to me. I want to learn how and why music does this.
I am taking this course because I want to learn the basics of music so I can learn how to play and sing better than I am now. I want to memorize the notes by heart and by ear so I will have an easier time trying to sing or play an instrument. I also want to learn the many chords, and learn which chord or chord combinations will sound good together and create a certain feeling. I have only just scraped the surface of music now, but I hope to learn much more about music in the future. This class is the first step to the advancement into the field of music.
