The 1st Student's Performance Forum
Studying Music is very different from the other subjects. It is basically a foundation of learning of the "do-re-mi..." But, that isn't so because you have to learn the basic concepts of Music, learn how to read and sing notes, learn how the art of singing and learn how to play the piano by performing it. Music is considered as a skill and talent that you have to share to the people who appreciates the art.
I am teaching my students that Music is not just a subject but you are learning Life itself. It is the basis of building a person's character and being discipline due to practice. It is a skill that an individual has patiently enhance such a craft.
Last April 16, 2011, the students have there Monthly Exams. There is a written exam, then they have to present themselves into singing and playing the piano both memorized musical pieces. Being pattern to my alma mater, St. Scholastica's College, Manila of the Music Department on how to have a Performance Forum.
The students will remember this as a fruitful experience in their young life. My students at PCI Academy: Emily played In May in piano and sang the song Tomorrow; Eric played Malaguena and Humorosque in piano and sang the song Where is Love; and Claire played Bach: Musette in piano and sang the song Maybe. Bravo my little ones. Good Job.
