Minor Creativity Post

Minor Creativity: 

My minor creativity for this year was learning traditional Chinese musical instrument. It is different from the one I did for my major creativity.I usually practice it one hour per day.  I used to play two transitional Chinese musical instruments, I stopped learning this one as I had to come to Canada. I kept learning the other one in Canada as it is easy to bring. My parents agree me to keep learning this one in Vancouver, because they found I have an enormous passion on traditional Chinese musical instrument. Fortunately, my current teacher is able to play both Chinese instruments. I went to her home twice every week: Tuesday for Erhu and Wednesday for this one.

Major Creativity Post

Major Creativity :

My major creativity during the school year, which from September 2013 to May 2014, is learning Chinese traditional musical instrument. I go to my teacher’s home every Tuesday afternoon in Burnaby and have an hour lesson with her. She is very nice and extremely good at the musical instrument. She is the best teacher I’ve ever met.  I stopped learning  it for almost three years, so I forgot most skills that I had learned before. After I found my current teacher in Burnaby, I told her about my situation and we made a plan together to help me to improve. We started picking up skills in the first two months, then started learning new skills and pieces of music. As a result, I found that I actually improved a lot during the time. Now, I’m preparing for the level test which happening next year in April.  I found I really enjoy learning the musical instrument., and I’ll continue learning it next year as my major creativity.

CAS Reflections

I’m doing my major creativity and major action now.

Major Creativity:

My major creativity is learning the traditional Chinese musical instrument. I go to my teacher’s home every Tuesday in Burnaby and have an hour lesson with her. I practise it an hour per day and two hours on the weekend. I’m learning two long pieces of music and three short pieces of etude.

Major Action: 

My major action that I’m doing right now is Sunrise tennis. I have practise very Monday morning from 6:45 a.m. to 8: 00a.m. at Hollyburn Tennis Court. I found it is very hard as I’ve never played it before. I’m learning the basic skills, and I’ll start learning how to play in a short distance next class.
