My Name is Kobe Reyes, and I am 17 years old. I have always been interested to make music ever since I was 8 years old, but once I started getting further inside music, I had an idea. This idea inspired me to start making music and becoming someone in the future, which is my goal if I ever make it to the music industry. I have always had a good voice and a good lyrical perspective and as I got older I thought to myself, if I use those traits and start making music, I think I could go big and inspire future generations as artists inspire younger people currently. For my paper, I talked about the music theory and how it helps people understand music better. The best part about music theory is how it has helped many artists in the past, before they had reached their peak from where they are now. Music Theory was quite a handful to understand, however it did show me the different features of music and by then I looked at music differently. Music has always been there for me, so why not give back to music since it has helped me throughout my life. Learning parts of music theory has helped me understand the body of music. For example, identifying different notes and where the placement of those notes corresponded. My product for my senior project is learning how to produce a song from start to finish. This relates to music theory very dramatically. Music theory is a badge of honor, and by that I mean, it allows you to understand the common language of music. Music theory can greatly improve your versatility as a musician, and is also a useful tool that provides a universal communication method. Whenever I started creating my beat, I would always start from scratch, but I would always have one problem and that was called the musical loop. This was my writer's block for music. I was eager to know what came next, because all I saw on the template of my screen was the same sound with missing gaps. I was frustrated at first, but in order to overcome that problem, my facilitator would instruct me to do a new beat every time we worked together. Making a new beat from scratch until I got it right helped me dramatically and showed me that anything is possible, I was just overthinking the loop situation. Music theory has helped me overcome my musical loop problem. After high School, I plan on producing my own music in order to become an artist, but as a multi-genre artist, I want to break the music barrier when I make it to the music industry, if all goes well. I will also have a backup plan after high school if this music subject does not work out, and that plan is going to college. However, I have overcome my fears and am now confident enough to pursue a career in the music industry. I do hope I get signed in the near future, if I make it that is. Senior Project is a great way to teach you a little bit of what you want to do later in life. I think it is a great way to help and I cannot wait to show you judges what I have been working on for the past months. Thank you for your time.
Sincerely, Kobe Reyes
