Throughout my years in elementary and high school I am able to recall numerous experiences which stand out in my mind as meaningful Certain teachers had different methods of making their lessons effective and easy to understand However in all of my memories a single day in fifth grade is remembered as an exciting day that literally changed my life I can vividly remember my first band lesson The anticipation and excitement I felt as I opened my new saxophone case for the first time was simply inexplicable I had never held an instrument before it was all new to me Yet slowly my band director began to instruct me on how to hold the instrument and the fingerings of basic notes By the end of the lesson I had learned to play Mary had a Little Lamb and Hot Cross BunsAt the time I did not realize what made that lesson so memorable As a 10-year-old child I knew that I liked this new toy I also felt that I was a good player After all I had learned to play two songs on my first day In retrospect however I realize that this positive experience can be attributed to more than just first-time excitement My teacher had developed a lesson that was comprised of distinct and meaningful components She began by introducing me to this new instrument instructing me on basic techniques This basic introduction was followed by a developmental period With my teachers help I began to learn beginning notes and note values Together we worked to develop my skills The lesson was concluded by putting together all of the information that I had worked to develop The random sounds that I made throughout the lesson became music as I performed my first songs This gave the lesson a sense of closure as well as a sense of accomplishment This memorable learning experience was extremely valuable to me in the fifth grade
