Hello and hi!
Harini I join Public Speaking Competition. Guess what, i extremely nervous dekat atas stage. I rasa I macam menyanyi rap atas tu. Judges tekan 1 bell je I dah turun. Kakakakka. But, I enjoy it! I cakap pasal Music. Haa so boring for the first task. But I enjoy it! I tak menang tapi takpelah atleast I cuba buat yang terbaik. Half of the contestants Chinese or Indian. So I got new friends.
So, you can use my speech below if you need it. But make sure credit or leave a comment ok?
Assalamualaikum and a very good morning to my fellow
friends and judges. Today, on this fine morning, I would like to
present to you a public speech about ‘Music’
hear it every day. No matter where we are, music will always be played either
on the radio or just by humming a tune. Did you know that music started as
early as the Paleolithic era? So music is about 200 000 years old. Wow! It’s so
old. Still, people enjoy listening to this ‘old’ art for nearly 200 millenniums.
an art which uses sound as its main medium. The word ‘music’ originated from a
Greek word ‘mousike’ (musikis), which means the art of the Muses (Muses). The
Muses are the Goddesses of Greek who loves art and literature.
The elements needed to produce music are
pitch, rhythm and dynamics. The pitch is the combination of melody and harmony.
Rhythm is the beat of the music. Dynamics are the volume. At first the song
starts soft, then it gradually starts to get loud. Suddenly there’s an accent
and everything settles down and dies away.
An object needs to be vibrated in order to produce sound.
Let’s take a guitar for example. We pluck the strings in order to vibrate them.
The sound waves then enter the hollow wood and echoes in order to make the
sound louder. How about a woodwind and a brass instrument? Ah, but there’s a
catch. These two instruments are the same, but they are not alike. Both
instruments need ‘puff power’. But a woodwind instrument uses holes to indicate
different notes whilst the brass family uses valves.
Some standard orchestral instrumental families are the
string family, as in pianos, guitars, violins and so on. Next, the woodwind
family. For example, flutes, recorders, bassoons and others. Lastly, the brass
family. The family consists of trumpets, French horns, tubas and others.
Sometimes, people use imaginary instruments like the air guitar. They are just
basically strumming like a guitar, but without a guitar. Still the song is
playing in their heads.
The music genre is generally endless.
It ranges from Acapella to Fusion jazz, Gaana to Muzak also known as the music
you hear in elevators, Nagauta, a kind of Japanese style of music, to Rumba,
Sabar to Zydeco. Sabar is not the Malay word for relaxing. It is a drumming
style found in Senegal. Have you heard? There’s another genre coming!
Revolution Pop is created by Usher Raymond. Oh, you know! He’s Justin Bieber’s
mentor. The most popular genres that we hear nowadays are pop, dominated by the
late King of Pop, Micheal Jackson. Rock, conquered by Elvis Presley. Punk,
played by the bands like Green Day and Paramore. Country written by Taylor
Swift and a few others. But the only thing I can’t deny is that the most
popular genre right now is K-pop or Korean Pop. Boy bands like BTS and girl
groups such as Girl Generation are examples of artists who gets involved in
K-pop. Boys and girls are going nuts over the artists.
music and the lyrics, a message could be passed through. Moral values could
also be found in them. Some song lyrics contain impolite words which should be
avoided as it could contaminate the thought. Motivating songs could boost and
motivate anyone who listens to it.
are people whose job is to make music. Music could come out as complex as it
sounds or even as easy as just making up a tune by humming. It may sound
difficult, but if you have the will to learn and create music, then it won’t be
that difficult. An example of a classical composer that we always hear but
seldom know is Ludwig van Beethoven, who wrote the song entitled Für Elise. At
the age of 26, Ludwig van Beethoven started to lose his sense of hearing. He
gradually became deaf, but that did not stop him from creating more fantastic music.
Don’t know who’s Beethoven? How about we take someone local. Edry Abdul Halim.
One of the members of a boy band with the name KRU. He has created music for
many Akademi Fantasia candidates and many are a hit!
written theoretically and made real practically. It lives in every one of us.
Music is like an international language. Even though we do not understand the
lyrics but we understand the melody. The rhythm. The harmony. Everything starts
small. In music, it starts with a note. Then, a tune. After that, a rhythm and
a melody. Finally, a harmonious song that unites everyone disregarding the race
or the background or whatever at all was born. Music unites the souls of
Malaysia and the world. Guess what! We enjoy it!
