My Life in Music: Christine WeidingerSoprano
We can not deny that there are various kind of music in today society. Music seems to be an essential aspect of the culture and life. In the following paragraphs, I will explain the reason why human need music and answer the question whether the traditional music of a nation is more important than the International music that is heard all over the world nowdays.
First of all, music is something that accompanies all of people through their life span. In particular, as children, people are taught songs by their parents and teacher as a way to learn language and communicate or simple as a form of enjoyment. Later in life, music plays many role in society such as music is the food of soul, it brings to people’s mind a way to entertainment and helps to release all stress that they have to surf. Moreover, music is able to express and arouse the emotions that words alone cannot.
Secondly, in my point of view, I believe that traditional music is more importan than Internation music because International music like Pop, Rock , RnB … is just commercial product that is used to earn money to business people. However, not only can traditional music express the culture, customs and history of a nation but it is also the connection between present and the past. In addition, music is a form of culture identity.
In conclusion, I absolutely believe that music is one of the most vital factor in the existence and development of human. Besides that, I also think that each individual should contribute to conserve the traditional music to avoid the domination of the modern International music.
My Life in Music: Gerard SchwarzConductor
I like to think that I have learned every life lesson from a music book. I have found that sometimes I need to slow down my pace, even if the person next to me is going faster. I have found that sometimes life will throw me notes that I have never seen before, and it isn’t whether or not I know them that defines the type of player I am, it is my willingness to learn them. Life will give me measures that I cannot handle, that I don’t know how to handle, but I can always find a way to work through them.
