After reading Chapter 14, I can make a personal connection to the piece Drummers, by Luca della Robbia. My past experiences connect with this piece of work because I have always been musically talented. I have played the saxophone, drums, guitar, and piano. This picture reminds me of my childhood with my younger brother. Before we started Kindergarten, we would use pots and pans as drums and spoons as drum sticks. We would run around the house beating on the pots and pans and sing all sorts of children songs.
In middle school, I was in chorus. At the end of 7th grade I began playing the saxophone in the jazz band. When I was in high school, I started to pick up the guitar and drums. I continued to play the saxophone because I was first chair and in the all-county band. My senior year of high school, I became drum major, which is the leader of band. This piece of work shows adults and younger children playing the drums. I can relate with this piece because I started teaching my younger nieces how to read music, play the saxophone, and piano when I was in high school. One went on to play the saxophone in high school and also played in a jazz band.
The piece of work clearly shows that music is appreciated by all ages and brings happiness to everyone. I can sit down with my father and put on a record from the twenties and enjoy it as much as he does since that’s his favorite genre. Throughout my life, music has brought me happiness. No matter if I was playing, listening, or teaching music, I was enjoying myself and will always appreciate the value music has to offer. I feel music is a universal language. Everyone can interpret the feelings the composer tries to accomplish.
