I am taking a part in Hedwig’s theme for the spring concert that will play tomorrow. Wonkyung and I are playing a recorder. I tried to play my part nicely to make our spring concert successful.
I was finding the music sheet of Hedwig’s theme for a recorder on the internet first to know how to play the recorder. It was hard to find the hand note instead of piano. After I found the music sheet, I couldn’t make exact sounds that I need to make. I researched for the tutorial for Hedwig’s theme for the recorder. I found the way to make proper sounds that I need to make on the youtube video. I changed that part so I could make nice sounds. After I have decided my music sheet and chords for the recorder, I kept listening to the tutorial video. It helps me to know what is the right sound and nice sound for Hedwig’s theme so I can know I make a mistake when I make a mistake. This helps me a lot because before I kept practice without listening to the tutorial, I didn’t notice that I made mistakes so I couldn’t improve on the part that I use to make a mistake.
Before the performance, our group practiced altogether many times. Every time we practice with everyone in Hedwig’s theme group, I and Wonkyung practiced our recorder part. I knew how to play Hedwig’s theme earlier than Wonkyung so I taught her how to play. It helps me to understand the way to make nice sound effectively. When I and Wonkyung practice individually, we tried to work on our own timing, it helps us to make sure that we know the tempo of the song. I practiced it at least once a day. When I practice, I played the tutorial for Hedwig’s theme on the recorder at the same time. It helps me to know the timing to play the chords and remember the song. Also, it helps me to know where I make mistake common. It was important because I could know where is the part that I need to improve.
These things that I did before the spring concert helped me. It was good to try those to be confidence on the recorder.
