October 28 2009

Today, some of us couldn't install the software 'Finale' (although the due date is tomorrow)so we gave our USB to Mr.Al so he could install it for us. Since Shania got chicken-pox and could not come to school for around 1 week, she did not know about Finale. Mr.Sadrakh explained to her and to us to refresh our memory and make sure we understood it. We also filled a worksheet about the Indonesia song 'Gundul Pacul'. After I wrote the reflection, name, date and instructor, I gave it to Mr.Sadrakh and went to instrument class, But we did not play any violin because there isn't much time.

October 22 2009

Today, we submitted our homework. It was to make the lyrics for our song. I did not know what to name my song, so I named it 'Animal Song'. Then we copied our lyrics in the paper which we copied from the new scale Mr.Sadrakh changed for us last week. After we did that we learnt how to install the 'Finale 2009' to make a song.

Today, at theory, we recieved our music book from mr.Sadrakh. He changed our homework (the 16 bars pentatonis scale) to a different scale because it is easier to play for some people, but Angky did not do his homework (again) because he was in Germany for around 2 weeks when schhol starts. After that we did a reflection on making the 16 bars pentatonis scale, and we copied the new scale. When all of us were done, we sang the Chinese song 'Xiao Yin Chuan' again, but this time in mandarin. Everybody was paired up and I was the last one with Jonathan. When theory finished, we only had little time (around 15 minutes) for instrument time.

Today, we learnt a Chinese song (named 'Xiao Yin Chuan' or, in English, 'Silver Moon Boat'), but we sang it in English (the translation). We also learnt Gundul Pacul. Some people that already knows the song had to sing it for an example, but I haven't heard of that song.

Today, in music class, we submitted the pentatonic scale homework (the one that is 16 bars and you could choose if you would like to use pentatonic scale number 1 or 2). I chose pentatonic scale number 2 because for me, it is easier. Some of us forgot to write the chords, and I was one of them. So we finished it and some people that did not understand asked Mr.Sadrakh for help but I already understood.

October 8 2009

Today was the second music class in Term 2 (The first was yesterday). At the beggining of theory class, everybody submitted their homework (the song we made from pentatonic scale no.1) in our music book. But I left my music book at home because when I finished my homework at home, I forgot to put in my bag for school, so I will submit it tomorrow.
After we submitted our music books, we revised pentatonic scale 1 by memorizing the notes. It was: C, D, E, G and A. Then we learnt about the chords. There are 7 chords. Then we revised pentatonic scale no.2. It was:C, E, F, G and B. Then Mr.Harry gave us a homework to make 16 bars from any of the 2 pentatonic scales. In instrument time, we had little time again so I did not play violin.

Today was the first music class in Term 2. In theory, we learnt 2 patratonic scales and got a homework. It was to make a song from the pentatonic scale. We had to make 2 lines (8 bars) for the song. In our instrument time, We did not have a lot of time, so only few students played the violin.
