People may not speak the same language, but it seems that music is a way to express emotion. Music is different sounds that all mankind can understand! Ira Riklis has stated that music is a way to communicates feelings! When people play slow and low, I know they are feeling down! If they were playing fast and up beat, I know they are feeling happy! So basically, music is a language everyone seems to understand!
Most important, the saxophone forces me to be challenged. I want to apply myself to my full potential! Other children probably feel the same way I do about keeping up or not letting their peers down. As an individual, we all can play sounds. As a group the timing and the way we play together makes music. I don’t want to be the one that lets out an imperfect note at the wrong time.
When everyone tries there best and plays to their fullest potential it just feels like a bond! Also, to continually advance to the next level is a great sense of accomplishment. Learning notes and songs is fun. I sometimes wonder how many instruments that I will succeed in playing through my life time! My goal right now is to be able to play four instruments! Ira Riklis has encouraged me to understand the simplicity and beauty of music.
