Your survival guide to everything life threatening…

Anxiety will worry for itself…
1. You need to be committed to doing your work. If you aren't committed to doing your work, then it’s not going to be any good. Good work requires time and effort. If you want the one hundred, you have to earn it.
2. In order to be a good student, you need to be organized. Organization will help you do well in almost everything, including school. When you are organized, you will be able to find your work. This is important when it comes to things like projects and tests. You don’t want to lose that study guide!
3. Finally, in order to be a good student at Madras, you need to have a good attitude. When you do something that you aren’t happy about, it’s not going to turn out very good. Therefore, you aren’t going to be very successful. If you smile whenever a teacher tells you about a project, you’re going to feel more confident and prepared! Success will meet those who smile!

When I first heard about band, it seemed like a fun experience to me. Therefore, when the time came to choose a connection, I chose band. I play the percussion instruments. These include:
The Snare and Base Drum
The snare and base drum are the two main drums played in band’s percussion section. The snare has a set of snares (wonder where it got its name) on the bottom of it. When the top of the snare is hit, the snares underneath vibrate, producing a sound. The base drum is a huge drum. When it is hit, the base drum vibrates, producing a loud, low sound.
The Xylophone and Glockenspiel
The xylophone and glockenspiel are both considered as “the mallets” in band. The xylophone is a wooden scale which is struck by (you guessed it) mallets. The glockenspiel is a metal scale that is also struck by mallets. Both instruments achieve their sound by the vibration of their bars.
The Cymbals and Kettle Drum
The cymbals and kettle drum are two entirely different, unique percussion instruments. The cymbals are made of alloys, (combination of metals) which are mostly copper based. They produce sound through vibrations when hit by each other. The kettle drum is a wide copper or brass drum. It produces sound through vibrations when struck, but the kettle drum can be tuned for different sounds.
Overall, percussion is a wide variety of fun and different musical instruments. It has an instrument for every type of person (mine being the mallets). It is a wonderful learning experience in the world of music, and it allows people to express themselves! I , personally, recommend this category of musical instruments!
