I. Introduction To begin, my purpose of this project was to inform and persuade individuals about the different music styles on the learning process. Sometimes while I am doing my homework I play music and sometimes I do not. I have often wondered if I work faster or better, while working on my homework, with music or without music. Through my research I found out that music helps the brain process information which helps with the learning process.
There are three main sections that branch off of being a musician: Education, which includes: Music teacher, private vocal instructor, band director, etc; Non-Professional. Which includes: small bands, singers just starting out, choir people, vocal students; and Professional, which would be considered ‘stars’. Not everybody makes it being the next big thing in music, but all music that we make changes the world in some way or another. A musician can be somebody who plays one or more instruments, or sings in a group such as a chorus or choir. A musician can also sing as a soloist, perform in front of an audience, or they can just record their music to be sold.
Music is a powerful art form that can motivate and change one’s emotions and mood. Listening to music for relaxation is common among many students to counteract the effects of stress or anxiety while completing difficult academic tasks. Some studies supporting this technique have shown that background music promotes cognitive performance while other studies have shown that listening to music while engaged in complex cognitive tasks can impair performance. The aim of the project is to research the following topic, “Does listening to music while working distract you?” The main reason why I chose this topic was due to being a victim to music when it comes to studying and interested to know the effects it has. But I believe that there is a way to listen to music while working without it having a negative impact on your ability to focus
I had haphazardly discovered a talent of mine that may have gone unnoticed if I allowed myself to switch classes to one of a higher academic rigour to assuage the fears that came with being a perfectionist. Now, I am at a point in my life where I realize that academics are not everything and that learning goes much beyond the traditional classroom setting. Music has opened up my eyes to the world that surrounds me, and I have indulged myself in numerous new passions because of it: playing the guitar, composing music, and joining new clubs and activities. Most importantly of all, however, I had discovered the joy of learning that became lost in my perfectionist ideals. Now, school no longer requires impeccability, but making mistakes that lead to furthering my education and bettering me as a
Students will look up to you as the teacher to keep the steady beat. An example of keeping the steady beat is playing an instrumental version of the song while teaching the lyrics.

It will be my job to convince my students that music is cool, and when creating songs not include much movement. As a future educator it will be difficult to include music into the daily classroom curriculum but with the variety of methods it should be easier.
I took my first psychology class and started to learn my special talent for it. I could listen. Yes, I am well aware how ears work, but I mean a different type of listening. I could listen without bias to problems and give my opinion no matter what my standing on the issue. It was because of this that people would sometimes randomly open up to me about the oddest things.
My focus was on the benefits of learning communities. I found many articles that focused on the benefits of learning communities, and the reviewing of other students’ Annotated Bibliographies helped me to get a better idea about the benefits of a learning community as well. The presentation by itself was not challenging enough, so we decided to play a game; in that way, everybody in the class could participate and actually could walk away with new knowledge. Each group member came up with three questions on our topics, and those question... ... middle of paper ... ...provided the motivation and encouragement I needed to overcome difficulties in my academic life. Most importantly, I discovered that I learn more effectively when I work in small learning communities.
The Music Educators Discourse Community As a musician you are exposed to many different types of terminology, ideas, debates and concepts most people are not. There are Interest and topics that we find appealing like the different language that we use to communicate with each other, are very different from someone that is heavily invested in other activities likes sports or even knitting . With these differences we have formed our own social group. The definition of an music educator is a field that touches on all domains of learning, including the psychomotor domain, the cognitive domain, and, in particular and significant ways, the affective domain, including music appreciation and sensitivity In our community we strive to achieve the goals set in this definition and also to move forward in our advancement of music in the world The Swales article is based off a discourse community. According to this articles a discourse community is a group of people who share a set of discourses, understood as basic values and assumptions, and ways of communicating about those goals.
Throughout the concert I would have considered myself as a referential listener, as I am for most things. Certain pieces and sounds played throughout the concert reminded me of certain things in my environment like the music played in eerie movies or even the music my teachers play during exams and silent reading. The concert began with Harold Warman presenting the Choir and Orchestra. Following that Mr. Warman stated that the Choir would be performing first because people need to learn ... ... middle of paper ... ...ting to see the orchestras. The musicians were very talented, as they performed a variety of songs.
Victor Hugo explained the importance of music in one simple quote: “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.” Through this statement, Hugo showed why only being required to complete classes such as math and science is not enough for students. A complete education has other meaningful components. Arguments exist stating that art, music, woodworking, and many more subjects are those integral courses. One class demonstrates prominent necessity, however. Music teaches students skills that are useful beyond the classroom, such as improved test taking, understanding the world around them, and expressing individuality.
