COMING UP WITH AN IDEA AND A PLAN
MY STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES AS AN ARTIST BEFORE STARTING MY PROJECT.
I am not that great at art. I have done some things I enjoyed but I didn’t really like the end project. I don’t want to draw or paint because I don’t enjoy that much but I do want to do something practical and learn something new. I really like gaming and I like the music and art you see in games. My teacher gave me a couple of piano lessons and we came up with these strengths and weaknesses:
I am good at playing slow relaxing music on the piano
I have a good memory for notes
I am good at practising rhythm
Making up my own music and being creative
My brain shuts off if there is too many notes
Sometimes I find it hard to focus
Moving my hands quickly is tricky
I don’t have a piano at home so I can’t practice
Music that I like
BRAHMS LULLABY – JOHANNES BRAHMS
I personally liked everything about his music. I mostly liked the background noise going so well with it.
CLAIR DE LUNE – CLAUDE DEBUSSEY
I love the mood and the feeling of this music.
Moonlight Sonata – Ludvig Van Beethoven
The music sounded depressing although I still liked everything about it.
It had an amazing rhythm. My favourite part is: 3:22 – 3:49
Someone You Loved – Lewis Capaldi
I don’t really like the singing but I liked the piano a lot.
Somewhere – from the musical West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein
Although I didn’t really like the singing in this, I really like how the singing and instruments become louder as it becomes more emotional.
Thinking about all of this music the things I would like to develop in my music are:
MY INTERESTS AND IDEAS
MY ACTION PLAN
I like sleeping! I also like music. I have never learned to play a musical instrument but I think now is the time to learn a new skill.
My challenge is: Compose a lullaby that will help people to relax and get to sleep.
For the final box, I didn’t get to fill it in before schools closed the first time so it should say:
To evaluate my project I will:
- Let my friends listen to it and see what they think
- Send it to any musicians that helped me with it and see what they think
- Create a survey to send around and get opinions on the lullaby
- Measure it against my goals
