What are the personality traits of musicians?

Musical, patient, and talented are the main components. Otherwise we vary.

It depends on the type of musician and how gifted/dedicated they are to music. Great composers are usually 'introverts', while great performers are usually 'extroverts'.

[It is too simple to say great composers are usuallyintroverts. Bach, Mozart, Berlioz and others were hardlyintroverts. Beethoven... sometimes yes and sometimes no.


In general, very good musicians aredisciplined, humorous and patient. Some are talented (meaning they were born with enormous ability... such as Mozart) and some have no talent (meaning they had to learn and practice like a regularhuman being, such as bach and Beethoven).


In general, good musicians have apredilectionto attention todetail and are usually good in other fields besides music because of this. They also have a tendency to be flexible and perform well in tight situations.


Musicians who are not particularly good are simply neuro typical and can be like any member of the general public while good musicians usually are found somewhere on the autistic spectrum. Left hemisphere epilepsy in not uncommon with them, though there are no figures on specifics.]

An Italian overture is generally divided into three-movements. Generally, the latter movements have a quick tempo whereas the middle movement has a slow tempo. So it might go something like a prelude preceded by an adagio movement and then an allegro piece.

What opera is The Students Chorus from?

This is only a "WAG," but I'm thinking that what you're looking for is Romberg's operetta The Student Prince that has a "chorus of students" in it. One of the most popular songs from it is the "Drinking Song" sung by the student chorus. Hope that helps.

I believe there is also a Students Chorus in Gounod's"Faust". Possibly others as well.

Answer 2. There's a "Student's Chorus" in Berlioz's Dramatic Legend, The Damnation of Faust.

What is the difference between songwriting and composing?

Simply, songwriting normally implies that it is to be sung, while composing means that it is to be solely instrumental.

However, more exactly, songs and song-form imply certain types of form and structure that differ from other types of compositions. In a general way a song is a musical structure with (usually) a melody and a repeating form (like a chorus), but is in many ways open to interpretation by the performer.

A composer, however, thinks in bigger forms where lines, harmonies, textures and other elements may supersede the melodic considerations. Emotionally, compositions can have complicated forms running through many emotions, whereas songs usually follow one or two different feels or a progression from one to another.

The Naughty Preposition

--Morris Bishop

I lately lost a preposition:

It hid, I thought, beneath my chair.

And angrily I cried: "Perdition!

Up from out of in under there!"

Correctness is my vade mecum

And straggling phrases I abhor;

And yet I wondered: "What should he come

Up from out of in under for?"

Who wrote Amazing Grace?

The words were written by ex-slave trader John Newton, who was born in London on 24 July 1725. His father was commander of a merchant ship, and young John followed in his footsteps. After his father died, Newton joined the crew on the H.M.S. Hartwich, but deserted after he found the living conditions deplorable. He was recaptured, flogged and demoted from midshipman to common seaman.

After this, Newton spent some time on a slave-trader's ship, learning the trade, and eventually commanding his own trade in slavery. His conversion occurred during a violent storm at sea on 10 May 1748. From then on, he was a changed man, ultimately leaving his sea-going days behind him, and studying to become a minister. He was ordained by the Bishop of Lincoln and given the curacy of Olney, Buckinghamshire. "Amazing Grace" was written whilst he was at Olney, most probably between 1760 and 1770. He could now understand that God's love is for every man and Jesus had paid the price through his death on the cross for every sin he had ever committed. Incidentally, Newton did not write the music, only the words. The origin of the music is unknown, and there have been several speculations about the music. One is that it might have been based on a melody sung by the slaves themselves.

Newton and William Wilberforce eventual prevailed in seeing that slavery was abolished in the British empire in 1833, 32 years before it was finally abolished in the United States in 1865 by the 13 Amendment.

What skills does a songwriter need?

Anyone who writes music should know a little bit of music theory, like basic rhythm, notes on a staff, and how to know what key a song is in. It is also good to be able to transcribe what you hear (or play) onto paper. Of course, you can try to write music without these skills, but it may be difficult for others to play if they don't learn it by ear.
