  • What does it take to be a good student at Madras Middle School?

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!

what not to do anecdote
What Not To Do… Anecdote
  • Learning experiences are hidden everywhere in your life…
  • It all started when I realized how much homework I had to do. I never really thought about the whole enchilada. Procrastination was the first of two learning experiences I had that day. I had started on my homework, but I wasn’t working very fast. That was a mistake. I had to leave for tennis and by the time I came back, I had to eat dinner. When I finally finished dinner, I had so much homework left. Therefore, I realized I need to plan time for homework and not procrastinate.
what not to do part 2
What Not To Do… Part 2!
  • We need to pay attention. There is more than one learning experiences in every situation.
  • After I realized how much homework I still had, I learned something else. I learned that I need to review everything I have to do. That way, I can plan and be prepared for anything that my teachers throw at me. I realized having a plan can keep me on track and help me with my other problem- procrastination.

My Expertise


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 drums.
  • The xylophone and glockenspiel
  • The cymbals and the kettle drum
my e xpertise part 2
My Expertise Part 2

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.

my expertise part 3
My Expertise Part 3

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.

my expertise part 4
My Expertise Part 4

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.

My Expertise Part 5


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!
