Young musicians

  1. 1. Nowodays, many children and young people /students/ aredreaming about a music career. It usually starts when they becomeinterested in karaoke or other music plays. Karaoke, a Japanesetradition in which people can sing along recordings of instrumentalversions of popular songs, has become very popular in manycountries. The word ‘karaoke’ comes from ‘kara’ meaning ’empty’and ‘oke’ which means ‘orchestra’. Some people would sing a lot ofsongs, others only one; some are very good singers, while others areout of tune, but everybody is applauded. In older karaoke bars, thereare several karaoke boxes, each of which is equipped with a karaokemachine, screens and microphones. The boxes are usually available invarious sizes ranging from rooms for only two people up to largeparty rooms. Food and drink can be ordered in most bars as well.Nowodays home karaoke players are also popular, they can be evendownloaded from the Internet onto personal computers, so one canturn his home into a personal karaoke bar. I find it necessary to say that very often the way to becomingfamous or at least to achieve success is a hard and long-term effort.For example, one may play the piano or the guitar very well, but ifthey can’t read music, they cannot become a good musician. I knowpersonally seventeen-years-old students who have got similarproblems. Some of them are tone-deaf, others sing out of tune orcannot tune up instruments, or something else. They told me abouttheir problems with career, and I would like to show you results ofmy investigation on a diagram:
  2. 2. You can notice that there are a lot of reasons why one canexperience dificulties with starting a career in music , but all of themare obstacles to top the charts and even are able to stop spreadingthe wings. Apart from the information on possible origins of theirproblems, I asked young musicians to answer several otherquestions. I want to present the most interesting ones:What do you need to do to become successful?‘I think, there are three most important things: exercise, practise andsleep eight hours every day.’How do you cope with stage fright?‘I don’t know, but I know that it is posible. You can either do it or youmay come back to clearing instruments of the others on the backstage’
  3. 3. Do you have to sing in tune if you want to be a pianist?‘I think so, because if you don’t, you won’t finish music school.’When did you decide that you want to be a musician?‘In 1972, it means when my parents were borned’Do you regret your decision?‘As far as I remember, no’
