But why? Every students has their own personal reason. Some may have never fully understood how to read or write and was to embarrassed to speak up others may have disorders such as dyslexia which makes reading and writing difficult. In my case I had a passion for reading and writing when I was younger. As I grew up I did not like the material that had to be read or the papers that was required to be written; but since I knew the work had to be done accurately in order for me to pass the class I learned to tolerate the subject.
In my mind, I never really liked trying to explain in full detail what something meant. Back in high school, my teachers always wanted me to explain my writing in such depth that a kindergartener would understand why Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy. Trying to explain my writing was always very tiring. I often would get bored trying to explain and just stop writing and do something else for a while. Most of the time in high school I didn’t like writing.
“I am thrown off my reading game when forced to read to fast,” wrote Thomas Newkirk author of The Art of Slow Reading. No matter where I was I didn’t like having to read on a time period; it was always a lot of pressure on me. It was either my mom or teachers rushing me to read. But over time, I started to accept the pressure. As I look back in my life, I realize my reading experiences have had an impact on my life.
Reading is believed by some academia to be the most important activity that a student could do to go ahead in academic pursuit. Some research claimed that many people take reading for granted in their developmental stage. Due to this fact, few learners cannot read properly because they claim they do not enjoy reading. In my observation, not only is effective reading important but to read with comprehension (recall of read text) and for pleasure. The constant engagement with reading for pleasure might sensitize the desire to read.
In addition, many of the exercises – such as the “Listen and play” tunes – throughout the book encourage students to use the accompanying CD, which contains quality sound models for the students to hear, reinforcing ideas for good tone production. Other helpful elements included towards the beginning of the book include a simple practice journal and illustrations and instructions on developing the basics of proper embouchure, posture, and hand position.

This being said, this book should not be completely taken out of the equation when choosing a method book for your classroom. The lessons involving improvisation and composition are very valuable and could be easily extracted from the text and used with a different method book.
It may also help reduce physical pain and be able to treat minor heart conditions. Music may also assist the children with their school subjects. Music makes it easier for students to understand and interpret school work and focus on what is important in their academic studies. Music also helps students with the multiple standardized testing that is prominant in school systems today. Students need to be introduced to the power that music has on people.
Early musical training helps develop brain areas involved in language and reasoning (Phillips). Learning and listening to music at a young age helps kids be more reasonable and better understand things more. There is a link between music and spatial intelligence (Phillips). This means that kids have the “ability to perceive the world accurately and form mental pictures of things”(Phillips).

Many people like me read for enjoyment. I read for pleasure and I also write for pleasure. For me as a writer I have to be able to write about something I enjoy so that I cannot run out of ideas and things to talk about when I am writing. As a reader I also read for pleasure because I have to be able to understand what I am reading about and so that I would want to read more about what I am readying. Starting this class I was a nervous wreck, but looking back now this class has really helped me out a lot, as a highschool student the essays that I do are not given feedbacks and with this class it has helped me because I get to know what I did wrong and what I need to work on with the feedbacks I received after every rough draft we do.
I would start to feel anxious and nervous that I wouldn’t get into any college just because of how bad and ridiculous my essays were. After some time just sitting there and just rambling , I would finally have at least a page or page in a half to send off until I had my english teacher or mom look over it. I seemed to always get the same expression or chuckle from them. They would give me the look of “you’ve got to be kidding me.” It wasn’t like I did it on purpose, I had to constantly explain to them writing essays was not for me. The bad thing was this was how it always was for me when I wrote essays or paragraphs or even letters.
