From the day we’re in our mother's stomachs, to the day we die, we have always been listening to music. For me, listening to music all my life helped me develop a passion for it. When I was around the age of 6 my dad introduced me into the world of Rock. The very first band I remember listening to was System of a Down and ever since then, I fell in love with rock music and all its possible variations; for a long time this was all I listened to. It wasn’t until high school that I started listening to all sorts of genres and realized that I wanted to have a career in the music industry. That's when I learned about producing music.
A sound technician operates technical audio equipment that may amplify, enhance or reproduce sound to support what is wanted to be achieved by the client. They may set up audio equipment and monitor for malfunctions and also talk to stage directors about audio effects.
Recording Arts is a career field in which sound is recorded. Recording Arts plays a major role in life because sound is everywhere. Sound is in the video games we play. Sound is in broadcasting. Sound is in TV and film. Sound is in the music that we listen to. Growing up, my life evolved around music. I started guitar, piano, and drums at the age of 14. When I first enter high school, I joined chorus. It was a great experience. I learned to scat and how to sing like Louis Armstrong. The next year, I joined the band. I played every instrument that I could play. That includes guitar, piano, drums, and bass. I never took it serious until I started to play the bass. I fell in love instantly. I performed at talent shows and anywhere that I could perform.
The career goals I am preparing for include finishing my BSN, then continuing to receive my MSN, receiving my RN-C and becoming a clinical instructor for a community college. I plan to start taking classes for my MSN degree as soon as I finish my BSN because you must have a Master’s degree to become a clinical instructor. Becoming a clinical instructor has been a dream of mine since I started nursing school in 2009. When students come to the NICU for their observation day, I make sure to teach them everything I know about neonates because they only get one afternoon in the NICU and I want them to leave loving the specialty as much as I do. I want to teach clinical at a community college versus a four year college so I can encourage the nursing students to continue on for their BSN immediately upon completion of their Associate’s degree because “generally,
After training or schooling has been received, there are a few ways that might get you in the door and working for a studio. 1) Offer your services for free (or next to) to a studio to learn the business. 2) Check what seminars are being offered for Recording Engineers and go. Contacts can be made and learn more about the business. 3) Check with record companies for availability of internships. 4) Knock on every studio door in town. Just get involved, stay informed, do whatever you can to break-in and work. It may take a while to get in the door, but once you do, as long as you're talented, work hard, and persevere your career should advance.
Music producers have been compared to film directors in that the music producers guides and directs the record as its being made. As a music producer, songs are written, arranged, produced, and recorded for themselves or for other artists.

Producers are constantly looking for new jobs while he or she is working on a project due to the competitiveness and scarce of losing out on a great opportunity. Typically, music producer earnings will range from $25,000 to $1,000,000 per
An audiologist is someone who studies hearing(ears). In 2015, Audiologists were voted the second best occupation to have. Our guest speaker was Dr. Karen Mills. She shared a lot of information with us. If you want to be an Audiologists you must go to college and get your Bachelors (4 years), Doctrine (3 years), and more years for your intern. Being an Audiologist deals with anatomy, math, science, and physics. There are different places you can work. You can work at a doctor, hospital, school, military, noise environments, etc. Dr. Mills posses her own place called Hemphill Hearing Center. She shared with us that she used to be a truck driver.

They are also called the Hammer, Anvil, and Stirrup. These are the strongest bones in your body, but they can be broken. Also, there are three ways for loss of hearing. It could be because of builded up ear wax, too much fluid, or nerve damage. Once the nerve is damaged you can not get it back. Sensorineural (nerve damage) is more common in older people or people that are often
I have been in choir four all four years of highschool and I became a Choral Union Officer my junior year. It was a tough decision to take this role because at the time, I was also the PHS Dance Team Captain. Being a leader in two huge and important things in my life was hard, but choosing to lead one was the toughest decision I had to make. The schedules highly overlapped and I was forced to pick one or the other. I stepped down from being the captain of the dance team so I could focus on being an officer for choir. Of course stepping down was devastating, but I do not regret choosing choir. My junior year was the most eye opening year for me, where being a choral leader not only allowed me to become a better chorister, but a better leader
I feel like the music industry today is a far cry from the music industry of old. I feel like only within the last couple years, where being a songwriter has come back to being more popular, has the music industry, as a whole, taken a turn for the better. It has become more about the music for some artists and less about the money they could potentially earn. I feel like the genre of music that has the most amount of artist not making their own music is the pop genre. Sometimes, I hear songs sung by some of these boys and girls about love and relationships and I wonder if they’ve ever truly experienced what they’re singing about. Or, if the song was handed to them by one of the label executives and told “That will be a hit!” I feel like most
Working with music takes a certain type of patients. That’s why when I knew this project was present, I had the perfect person in mind because I worked so close with this person once before. So, I decided to gather my resources and get in contact with our family friend Dr. Snodgrass who is the superintendent of the Fort Osage R-1 School District and ask if I could receive her email so I could set up a facetime call with her and get this interview on the road. Her name Is Erica Gregory and she is a high school band teacher at Fort Osage located in Independence Missouri. The reasons I decided to interview her were simple. First, she was my star time teacher which meant she was my study hall teacher. As a freshman coming into high school and being placed in a study hall class
I have accomplished lots of things in my lifetime. I have accomplished getting a job and getting my license to go to that job. I have accomplished working two jobs one is being a machinist and a referee.
We haven't talked in a while so I thought I send you a quick e-mail. My life has been school, running, sleep, and music! School is going well like all my teachers (for the most part)! I haven't raced yet in cross country because I got sick a few week ago... I am just not getting over it, and I was supposed to have a meet on Saturday, but it was canceled due to horrible course conditions. I have been spending a lot of time producing music... Over this last summer, I got very serious about it. Realistically, I don't think it will be a career field for me, but you never know, and I really enjoy it. I've thought myself a lot, but I think I will be meeting with some actual audio engineers to learn even more. Right now music production
My transcripts show that I only participated in band my freshman and sophomore years. Band became a necessary sacrifice because I still needed to fit in graduation requirements and a load of AP classes to my junior and senior year schedules; however, my music career did not end! I found a way to continue playing the bass guitar in my church praise band, and I am currently going on my sixth year of playing. I will be flexible in continuing my music career, whether it be in a class or a club, because it is definitely an activity that has become important to me.
I have come across many situation where I have had to compromise to resolve my issues. I am a cadet major in the United High School AFJROTC and was placed in a leadership position as the chief of staff. That means I help lead about 200 cadets toward common goal that is to teach them life skill that will produce better citizens. I work alongside the Group Commander and Deputy who also assist in running the corps. Our instructor often gives us many tasks to better our communication and leadership skills. Many of these tasks require us to work together as a team, but of course working together as a team doesn’t always come easy. One of the biggest challenges that I have come across so far was preparing for awards night. Awards night is a graduation for all the cadets where they receive ribbons to account for all their accomplishments
I have been trained to become a chemist since the first year of my high school. This is a challenging career, requiring analytical thinking, attention to details, and adaptability. It is also a well-paying and promising career. However, chemistry is not what I have always dreamt of doing the rest of my life. As someone who is concerned about the development of sub-Saharan Africa, I came to a conclusion that what this region needs is not only scientists but also people who know and understand leadership and international affairs. In this paper, I compare my strengths and abilities to the qualities that one should have in order to excel as a chemist and a diplomat.
