When you focus on a career major, you have to have a reasonable picture of what you are getting into. You have to get correct data and assess it. Numerous components go into picking a school or college major including parental or peer influence,
The career I wish to succeed at is music education. The fascination and passion had started when I was seven years old. My mom who was a saxophone player had started this passion when she first handed me her old saxophone. Even though I wasn’t very good at first I still couldn’t put it down. I practiced a lot to get better at playing that old saxophone. Eventually band for fifth graders had started and I had wanted to learn more about the instrument I barely knew about. I found out how to take care and set my amateur. Then we learned more of the basics like how not to sound like a goose. Finally, I’m here in high school I’m taking music theory to further my passion and prepare myself for college.
Around the country, children of all ages are interacting with music, either through listening or through instruction. Many parents believe that children should learn an instrument or to sing in order to be more cultured and well-rounded, aiding in their future endeavors. However, there is much more to music than culture. Studies have shown that students who are involved in a music program at a school or take private lessons are more likely to achieve higher on standardized tests and have higher IQ scores. They also show that young students who take music classes develop language skills and recall information better than their non-musical counterparts. Music education, therefore, is extremely beneficial to our world’s youth. Music

I decided to go to college because I felt like this could be a way for me to experience new things and help me get to where i wanna be in the future by doing something I love. I wanted a better education other than just having a High School Diploma. I was very fortunate to go to college, so I want to make the best of it. Going to college is way for me to make good life decisions that would be beneficial for me in life. Also, it is a great way for me to acquire a successful good paying job and to teach me how to learn new skills on my own. In college, I hope to figure my strength and weaknesses so i can be aware on different areas that i need to improve on. Establishing an academic goal is another achieve for me because, making good grades and
I would like to attend college because I thoroughly enjoy learning. I take great pride in my education; as a women in the twenty-first century, I am going to take advantage of the opportunities I have and educate myself as much as possible. Obtaining a college degree is also essential to thrive in the industry I would like to be involved in after college, the fashion business industry. I selected my major, business administration because I have curated and ran an online store since I was thirteen. I enjoyed the experience so much that I made the decision to pursue it as a career and not just a hobby.
The main reasons why I chose to go to college was, get better education for myself, be a role model for my children and to earn my degree to get a high paying job.
My teachers once said to me “There are no wrong notes but how you play them, the feelings you put in and how you play them in time. It’s all about your timing.” This advice has stayed with me the most and looking back over the last year I can see that timing is everything not just in music.
Music. When I started in the band in 8th grade at Saints Francis and Clare, I didn’t really want to be there. It was just another class, in another day, of my last year of school. This began to change after I realized all of the amazing people I met in the band. Band led me to be happier and become friends with people who I never even knew I would meet. It has even lead me to a path that I would like to go into in the future. I love music and band so much that it has made me want to teach it or join a band as I go into college and just for the rest of my life. Through music I have even had the opportunity to meet some very amazing people, and I have been able to work next to some of those people.
From a young age, I was always fascinated with the profession of teaching and knew that I wanted to grow up and become an educator. As I reached my senior year in high school, I determined that I would focus my undergraduate studies on music education and become a middle school chorus teacher. I studied the craft of music teaching and dedicated myself to become the best music educator possible. While I completed my studies, I began to have a fascination with instructional technology in the classroom and researched the implications of including technology into choral and band music instruction. I was also given the opportunity to present multiple workshops to college students and in-service educators about implementing new and exciting technologies in their classrooms. While at Wingate, I assisted in the founding of the Center for Teaching and Learning where I helped design and implement a training program for professors to implement the use of an iPad in the collegiate classroom. Natalie Ayambem, director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, said:
The reason I am attending college is to get a degree in business manager. Business manager is something I wanted to do for quite a while now. It Is not a career that I will love, but is a career where I can challenge myself. Everyone I know who is attending college or university are challenging him and herself to be great. That is what motivate me to be as successful as them.
I decided to attend college because I'd like to be better educated. I hate sitting in a room, talking to someone who has no idea what they're talking about. I more wanted to be educated because I want to change the world, I know i can make a difference and I know an better educated person has an easier time. If for some reason I could go to college, I would be a flight attendant. I would love to travel the world and learn about other cultures and get paid for it at the same time. Culture should be shared among different people. I want to meet people who aren't like me to broaden my horizons.
The stigma associated with pursuing an education in the musical arts affects the decision of many musicians nationwide. The appeal of guaranteed financial and career stability of STEM and other paths of high demand jobs is very difficult to pass up, even by the most dedicated musicians. Then, the input and advice of outsiders come into play. These onlookers not only encourage study of the hard sciences and a foolproof path to success via university, but they also totally and blatantly discourage and belittle the intelligence, rationality and integrity of not just the paths of musicians, but all liberal artists. Don’t you want to make money? What do you mean you won’t have internships, don’t you want a job? How are you going to survive? This blitzkrieg of questioning and doubt, though theoretically peripheral to the bigger picture, is reasonably common, however, severely unjustified. Pursuing a formal college education in music is easily one of the best things you could do for yourself, regardless of whether or not this is the career path of your choosing. As a student of formal music education, you are actually being trained in more real world skills than most other majors, which will prepare you for many careers, making you stand-out amongst the masses. Being a music major, you learn more than just music, you learn problem-solving skills, how to communicate and collaborate, and how to overcome failure, which are all essential skills to have as a professional in today’s day
“Education- should enhance understanding of the world, of oneself, and of one’s own experience” (Kelly 2009). What is important about music education? There are many important aspects in music education like pedagogy and performance. For me, music education is about letting the students express themselves. Having the ability to give an idea or to vent is a vital tool in today’s society. This concept influences music because expression is not only in how to connect a phrase, but also how to tell a story. With my time in college, Dr. Joseph Frye will always tell me to tell a story with music. He will also ask me what I want to feel after playing a piece. This is what I believe is important in music education.
