Music Performance Autobiography

Good Essays
My music performance career made a debut when I was very young. The church was my first audience when I began to fall in love with the stage. I always took pride in singing in Christmas and Easter programs, and I eventually went on to sing solos. Until middle school, church was my sole outlet for music performance. However, in middle school, I decided to join choir and band. My life suddenly became filled with concerts, honor bands, and other performances. I consider these the moments that I really began to learn what performance was all about. Music has helped me learn many important life lessons that make me the person I am today. Music performance has been one of the most impactful parts of my life because it has taught me confidence, artistry, and dedication. Confidence is the main factor that separates how I was as a child and my current situation. As a child I used to be quiet and shy, but now I carry myself with much more confidence. I believe I owe my confidence to performing in front of people. Through the years, I made a decision to incorporate music performance into my daily life. I began to play in praise band at church, sing in the choir, and attend as many band events as possible. By gaining leadership in these areas, I have learned how to confidently lead others and convey my meaning when speaking. Putting …show more content…
Along the process of maturing as a musician, I have learned that music is not truly about expertly playing rhythms, having perfect pitch, or even playing the right notes, but it is about conveying a certain emotion to each person in the audience. Any performance could deeply impact someone, so I hope to encourage and motivate people through my music. Each practice adds to how clearly I can convey this to the audience. This also means that I must put one-hundred percent of my effort into every performance. I believe that this artistry is very important to my music

    Looking around with wide eyes, I was cornered. There was no escape; I had led myself straight into a trap and there was no way out. How could I even have expected to learn how to play the violin in a summer, when my classmates had been playing for at least two years? I played softly, cringing at the scratchy squeaks my violin emitted and wondering what I could possibly be doing in a room filled with sixth graders who, to me, seemed better than any Carnegie Hall performer. Six years ago, I was an intimidated beginner violinist, surrounded by peers who could read music, which to me, was an impossible feat. I never thought that I would continue playing the violin, for I was afraid. I always strive to be the best in anything that I do, be it playing an instrument, working on an assignment, or playing a sport. So why would I continue playing, when I was hopelessly behind my peers? To this day, I wonder what would have happened if I didn’t continue to play the violin.…

    Music has made a major impact on who I am now, I am now confident in my abilities to read and write. When I was younger, I was always placed in a lower level reading and writing class, also growing up with a speech impediment problem didn’t make it any better.

    One of my influence’s in music is Kanye West. In my early teens, few of my family members would always listen to a lot of Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella Records. I always like how the music sounded blasting through the speakers. I thought was amazing that a person can sample another song and flip it to make it another song. When I became 12 years old I always wanted to make my own beats with samples. I started reading and watching videos on how to make instrumentals. I also would find myself looking for the artist that was sampled and their entire catalog.…

    Confidence is a huge factor in a person’s life, and it usually starts as a child. It helps them to make friends, and to feel good about themselves. Involvement in music helps to start building self-confidence in children gradually and not forcefully. Most of the time, children don’t even know that it’s happening; I didn’t realize it until I started college. Performing in front of an audience gives a person courage that they didn’t even know that they possessed, and they can then go on to use this courage and confidence in other situations in their lives, thus creating a better life for them. Music education is the best teacher of this self-confidence, and I believe that most children wouldn’t have the same confidence if they didn’t have a music class every week.…

    This essay examines my aesthetic cultural background and main influences throughout my life. I was born in Istanbul which is the capital city of Turkey; however, my father and mother were born in Konya. Turkey has played a major role in the history of the world. In regard to the fact that Turkey is an Islam country, Turkey’s importance in the world is really high. The main underlying reason for that is because Turkey is the only country which is not only secular and democratic, but also Islamist as well. Based on the census data collected in 2000, Turkey has a 96.6 % Muslim population.…

    I Love Music

    Music is significant in my life for several reasons. First, it’s something I’ve grown up with. My parents have provided me with numerous musical opportunities even before I picked up an instrument. Whether it be my mom singing Beethoven’s 7th Symphony to me as a baby or the numerous concert I’ve been brought to, music has always been there. Right from when I picked up a flute for the first time I found it exciting and I was willing to accept any challenge so that one day I could “be like mommy.” Since then, music has built up my work ethic and perseverance through frustration and tears. I’ve made strong friendships with those who share music as a common interest with me. I’ve learned lessons that not only apply to music, but apply to life. Music is just a never ending cycle right from the start. As some things become clearer, other things become more ambiguous. This is something I’ve always found so intriguing and intellectually stimulating. Now I’ve come so far from where I’ve began, and I know I have a very long way to go, so it’s something I plan to work at for the rest of my life.…

    Music is an inseparable part of my life. I enjoy music concerts regularly. Most of the times I would pay attention to the way the organizations promoted and advertised and think about the reasons why the concerts would attract so many audiences. Piano and Chinese flute are the musical instruments I have been learning since I was small. Being the captain of the Chinese Orchestra in secondary school gave me precious and particular experiences. The Chinese Orchestra holds annual concert in school every year. At the year when I was the captain, the concert was held by having a joint-school event. My job was to keep in touch with captains from other schools, invite alumni to take part in the event and invite reporters from local newspaper offices to enjoy the concert. That was the first time I found that being a PR was challenging and I was fascinated by it.…

    I come from a family with a rich background in music. I don’t know a single family member that can’t play at least one instrument or doesn’t know how to read a piece of sheet music. When I was very young my mother would play music for me and sing to me. My father would also play the drums very loudly so the entire neighborhood could hear. Due to the fact that I was brought up around so much talent and music appreciation, naturally I decided that I wanted music to be a large part in my life forever and I want to be able to share it with the world. When I was in elementary school I decided to join the choir. This was a big moment for me because music was what made me want to get up and live my life, it was always something to look forward to.…
