Well...being that only one person answered my question of the week...BBJ wins with all answers correct! Congrats! I would've taken two different answers. But first, here's the question again. WHAT SONG DID FERRIS BUELLER SING ON HIS DAY OFF AT THE PARADE? SONG AND ARTIST, BONUS POINTS FOR THE YEAR THE MOVIE WAS MADE. so...the first correct answer is "Danke Schoen" by Wayne Newton. The second correct answer would've been "Twist and Shout" by the Beatles. The year the movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" was made was 1989. So congratulations to BBJ, your prize is on it's way :)
NYSSMA is this Friday. I have my time, 5:25pm. It's a pretty long drive for a 10 minute evaluation. But I think it's worth it. Once again, the score is out of 28 points. We're judged on our tempo, dynamics, rhythms, articulation, posture, technique...that kind of stuff. So I'll let you know how that goes probably on Saturday.
By the way, sorry I didn't update this past Saturday. I was in long island having a great weekend with ma familia :) we had a very Happy Easter!
AND! I should probably tell you that today in my jazz band rehearsal, I tried out for every solo possible, I bombed one of them, but I suppose the rest were good. Umm yeah I'll let you know on that too as soon as I know what's going on.
My spring concerts this year are on 2 different days, one for jazz, one for 7/8 band. The jazz band concert is May 18, and the 7/8 concert is May 19. It may seem like awhile, but in rehearsal time, it'll go by so quick.
That's all I have to say...well th-th-th-th-th-th-th-that's all folks!

Question of the Week...

There's not much to say so I'm just going to skip to the question of the week. The question is WHAT SONG DID FERRIS BUELLER SING ON HIS DAY OFF DURING THE PARADE? I'd like the song and the artists who sing it. Bonus points if you can tell me the year the movie was made! Try not to cheat! The first person to comment on this post with the most correct answers will get a prize. Good luck!

All County

I have not updated in a while. I'm sorry. BUSY BUSY BUSY! All County concert was Friday...It was so much fun. I sat next to one of my friends, which was fun because we know each other and it was not awkwardly silent the whole 6 hours. It was so fun. My question of the week is actually based on one of the songs we played. The John Williams: Movie Adventures song. That was my favorite one that we played.
So because All County is officially over... :( .... NYSSMA has my full attention now. I NEED to PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. I don't really have much to say, there's nothing new going on. I'll take off the All County links from the BAND SONGS tab. :(
OH! one more full week of school and then Spring Break! But before spring break, the last day of school, Friday, is an NCBI meeting which is ALL DAY out of school. Basically we teach other kids in my school the point of NCBI which is to be an ally and help others in any way possible. I did it last year it was really fun. After school that day is the talent show. So in other words, Friday will be a great day.
That's about it. So I'll go.

Today's my birthday! Had a lot of fun today...we had a half day in school so I came home at 11, and instead of classes we watched a movie. We watched "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" which isn't the happiest movie in the world. It's a holocaust movie. Anyway, today was fun. My favorite food for dinner tonight, ZITI. YUM! Oh and tonight I'm going to see Beauty and the Beast the musical at my school.

My high school's acting troupe is SO good. They put on REALLY good shows.

I don't have anything to say...so I guess I'll just update whenever!

Today...is a sad day.

Now, you're probably thinking "why is today a sad day?" WELL I'll tell you. First off, today is the first day of spring. I'm terribly disappointed and mourning. But I bet some of you are doing happy dances chanting "NO MORE SNOW!" But hey. Winter is my favorite and now it's over. Second thing is now ski season is over. I went on my last ski trip last Sunday March 13th. We went to Mount Snow...it...was...AWESOME! I had so much fun. But whoa hey I forgot. I'm explaining sad things. Sad things aren't fun. So number three on the list of reasons as to why this day is a sad day is because spring means the last season before summer. Sure I get it, summer is exciting because it's a whole three month vacation. Here's what I don't get. It's a three month vacation anticipated by kids around the world. And once it comes, the first week and a half are SO nice to be off from school. After that, complete boredom. I am the only rational kid I know that thinks ahead to the boring days of summer. I HATE SUMMER. So anyways, in four days my birthday is coming up. I'm turning 14, yup that's right. Now only 3 years until I can drive? YES! My mom keeps reminding me that she's not old enough to have a kid as old as me. Going to high school next year, possibly getting a first job sometime soon. Personally, I'm excited. 14 is my lucky number. Which ultimately means that it'll be my lucky year. In my head anyway. So according to my countdown, 41 days until my NYSSMA solo. That means 40 more days to practice, and 5 more lessons in school with my teacher before then. I really don't think I'm ready. And also 19 more days until all county concert. OH! And I'm now in the talent show. But what is my act you ask? well I'm performing EVOLUTION OF DANCE. Ya know that guy on YouTube Judson Laipplay? I'll post the video under BAND SONGS just so you can watch what I'm doing. Well I think I wrote a good size essay for today's post, so I'm gonna go. Thanks for reading!

Confusion Much?

Alright I need to clear things up. The music I have for all the bands I'm in seems to constantly be changing but here we go...the finalized version...

7/8 Band:
Mozart has been removed, and another classical piece will take it's place. We're still deciding.
The Great Steamboat race by Robert W. Smith
The Crown of Castile by Johnnie Vinson

Jazz Band:
Harlem Nocturne Arranged by Peter Blaire
Gimme Some Lovin' by Spencer davis, Muff Winwood, and Steve Winwood
Sunday Morning Arranged by Roy Phillippe

All County:
John Williams:Movie Adventures by John Williams
Chant and Tribal Dance by David Shaffer
Zing! Boom! by Brad Carroll
Under the Rice Moon by Victor Lopez

Bourree by J.S. Bach

I'll try to put ALL of them in the BAND SONGS tab on top, but I can't promise they'll all be there.
I will let you know what the song that's replacing Mozart is...
So NYSSMA is 6 weeks away, All County is 3 weeks away, and I don't even know when my regular concert is. Anyway, that was it. I just wanted to clear that up.

Hey there :)

Hi! Winter break came and went...hm. I wish it was longer. I had fun! I went to the Country House, and we (my cousin KT, grandpa, uncle, and little brother Tyler) went skiing at Belleayre mountain. We went sledding on the big hill in the back yard too. That was fun. But to start off my vacation before all the skiing, I went on an overnight retreat with my church. THAT was fun. There was 20 kids there total, and 6 high schoolers that basically ran the whole thing. It was WAY more fun than I thought it was going to be. Yes it was a church retreat, but it wasn't all church based things. I'm glad I went.
But...break is over and I'm back to school...until spring break that is ;)
So I found out that in all county we are not doing the song Fire Dance because we played that last year for all county. So a new song was ordered and I'll let you know what that song is when I get it!
Jazz band rehearsal today. I feel like we haven't had a rehearsal in awhile. But we sound pretty good. We still need work for the concert, but it's good.
Now, my NYSSMA solo. I will openly admit I haven't been practing enough. Not NEARLY enough. It needs SO much work. But I definately can't wait until the last minute. I NEED TO PRACTICE!
SKI CLUB! We had it the Friday before break, and it was alot of fun. Kinda short on snow, but nevertheless fun. This Friday is th last Ski Club at Jiminy Peak. :( BUT! We get to go on a big trip on a Saturday to Mount Snow! WOOHOO!!! SOO MUCH FUN! And guess what. They have this thing called the waffle cabin. It's at the bottom of the slope so you can just ski right up to it and they serve the world's best Belgium waffles...dipped in chocolate. And to top it all off, they have hot chocolate too. SO good.
Well, that's it. I'm gonna go so I can watch GLEE....yes I watch Glee. It's not that bad. Don't hate until you tried it. ;)

I MADE ALL COUNTY! YES!! Concert is April 8th :) alrighty songs are...
Zing! Boom! By Brad Carroll
Under the Rice Moon By Victor Lopez
Fire Dance By David Shaffer
John Williams:Movie Adventures (Star Wars Theme, Duel of the Fates, Theme from "Jurassic Park", Theme from E.T.-The Extra Terrestrail)
I added these songs under the BAND SONGS tab...the only one I couldn't find was Zing! Boom!. And again I had a problem with "Under the Rice Moon". You need to copy and paste that one into your search bar and it'll take you there.
I can't wait for rehearsals!! There's only 4 rehearsals though, I REALLY hope that's enough. But with the hard after school scheduling it'll have to do. Ummm...that's all the good news I have. I thought I should share. :) Ok bye!

Ski Club

SKI CLUB! yup that's right we went tis week.it was REALLY nice...not too much ice, and just the right amount of powder :) it was fun. one more week of skiing, then winter break! WOOHOO! so...Valentine's day. This Monday. If you want my opinion, it's a stupid holiday only made for chocolate manufacturers. Other than that it's a good day to propose...that's about it. I mean, how believable is it that there's a baby named Cupid that flies around in his diaper and shoots people in the rump with a heart shaped arrow?
Today I volunteered to help at a Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser thinking it was only going to be jump roping with little kids...I couldn't have been more wrong. It was AMAZINGLY fun. I got to hang out with kindergartenersfor 3 hours! How often does that happen? Well, everyday for me...but hey it was fun anyway. I'm glad I did it. :)
ok I'm done...bye!

Snow Days

So...Ski Cub was cancelled yet again for this week. UGH! Only because we had a snow day...but maybe that's partially a good thing. It was supposed to be -11 degrees. Cold.
This week, of course, Monday was MLK Jr. Day, so no school. We got a snow storm Tuesday... snow day. It was flurrying Wednesday morning, so we had a 2 hour delay. 8 o'clock we get a call...SNOW DAY. Thursday it was fine so we had school, and Thursday night into Friday we got yet ANOTHER snow storm...snow day. So we basically had a snow day vacation this week. I didn't realize snow days can get boring when there're so many in a row. hahaha so because of all these snow days my school only has ONE left. We better be careful...
lalalaaa... <-- that was me singing. Ok so anyway, my question of the week. If you chose other, PLEASE tell me in a comment on post what other is! I'm curious. :)
I feel so hyper right now and I don't know why. Tomorrow I have to read my book for English. Gross. I have to PRACTICE!
OH! That reminds me...my lesson/band/everything else musical teacher has 2 other teachers that she works with. They ALL teach lessons. And in order to "get taught in various ways", they rotate the teacher we have for lessons. WELL, my teacher (Mrs. Edwards) says she won't give up my lesson group. :) Hm. I was extremely happy. I didn't want to trade teachers. Haha. Soooo I think I'm done. I'll see ya soon!

Band Songs

Up above there's a tab entitled "Band Songs". If you click that, there's the list of all my band and jazz band songs, and links. All lead to either their JWPepper.com listening section, or a youtube video. The only one I had trouble with was CROWN OF CASTILE. For that link, you need to copy and paste the link into your search bar because the last half of it won't allow you to click and it'll bring you to a blank page. But that's the only problem. I Just wanted to let you know. Enjoy!

First Ski Club Trip

Last Night was my first ski club trip to Jiminy Peak...it...was...AWESOME! Very cold, but so fun. It got down to 4 degrees! CRAZINESS! We went on all the black diamond trails...successfully. The only problem was the ice. The trails were majorly lacking in powder. But I can deal. :) Anyway just wanted to let y'all know.
Happy Ski Season!

Happy New Year! I hope your Christmas and New Years was good. Mine certainly was! I got a very nice video camera, some DVDs, Wii Games, books, VERY soft pj pants :), and ski Jacket, Pants, Helmet, Gloves, Everything. AND a Perry the Platypus keychain to put on my jacket. It was very exciting. So now Agent P can ski with me!
So in school, band is now in spring concert rehearsal mode. My teacher is one BUSY woman...now she's doing 6,7, and 8th grade all county and NYSSMA, she's doing Jazz Band, geneal band, lessons, and pit band for the play in June. It's funny because I seem to always be in her office with my lesson group of kids and she tells us everything she's doing. So here's my music...
Band: The Crown of Castile by Johnnie Vinson
The Great Steamboat Race by Robert W. Smith (my personal favorite)
Eine Kleine Nachtmusik by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Jazz Band:Sunday Morning by Neal Hefti (this song has the solo I'm going for later on!!)
Gimme Some Lovin by Spencer Davis, Muff Winwood, and Steve Winwood
Harlem Nocturne by Earle Hagen
One More Secret Song to be Handed out sometime in the future...

They are ALL really good. You can look most of them up at
and just search them in the LEFT search bar.
Soooooo...SKIING! Ok so ski club officially started and the first session was last Friday at Jiminy...perfect new snow, nice cold weather, we drove to the buses, and were told the dreadful words "We're sorry, but ski club is cancelled." UGHH!! But it will be made up at the end. And I have it every friday now. SO it'll be fun. ALOT of fun. :)
That's about it, so...thanks for reading!

Winter Walk

Tomorrow is the parade, and I can't wait. I'm nervous, but I think I'll get over it...hopefully. It'll be fun. I'll update tomoorow and let you know how it went. I really have nothing else to say. OH! except my teacher was late with handing in the all county entrants so if I'm not in all county it's because she didnt send it in. NOOOO just kidding. She was late, but she sent them in today. No big deal. That's it.

I added another animation to the right...and I added a few pictures. To see them there's a tab up at the top. The pictures are from last year. I don't have winter pictures from this year yet being that we're not really into the snow part of winter yet. So today is "Cyber Monday". I think that Cyber Monday should be a national holiday. Who's gonna go to the store when all the sales are online? Give those Wal-Mart workers a day off! And i still don't understand why people go out of their way to get up at 1 AM on Black Friday because if you just wait 3 days all the sales are in the comfort of your own home. You can stay in your PJs and slippers and not have to worry about getting run over by that old lady in the wheelchair trying to get the NICE dentures even though everyone knows she's the only one that wants them. That's just my opinion. But if you did go online and enjoy the sales I hope you took advantage and went all out.
So I'll see ya soon then I guess.
Stay Musical :)

Well, the turkeys who survived until today are good...until next year. I hope your Thanksgiving was great. And I hope that your Black friday shopping experience was...for lack of a better word enjoyable...I hope no one trampled you for that last Spanish Buzz Lightyear action figure. I want one of those. Anyway, It snowed today. I'm excited. I can't wait to go skiing. My ski club money was turned in already so it's official. What stinks is now I have to wait until January for the first trip! Ugh I can't wait. I again redesigned my blog for the winter/Christmas season. Any sugestions? I can use all the help I can get! I added a Christmas Countdown to the right of what you're reading right now. I love Christmas. All the smells, and the snow, and the decorations.
I try to update the blog weekly, sometimes more often, and YES i DO look at the comments. So what I ask you to do is comment on this post what you're favorite part of your thanksgiving was. And after that, put the #1 thing you are thankful for. My favorite part was the apple pie. YUMMM :) And I am most thankful for my family's health. I think that's most important. Well, Thanks for reading! Enjoy the last of the Autumn season before winter kicks in.

Hello Everybody! Alrighty big news...
and wait, because there's more...
I will be playing on a float in the Winter Walk parade on Main Street with the rest of my lesson group from school and another trumpet lesson group!!! I'm SO EXCITED!!!!! Well that's about it. That's all the news I have..so Isuppose I'll come back tomorrow and update the rest of my blog. Alright then Bye!

Hellooooo :)

So...I have the answer to the "Question of the Week" from however long ago that was (When did 'Nightmare On Elm Street' appear in movie theaters? 1978, 1980, 1982, 1984) The First movie, featuring famous quotes from Freddy such as "Don't worry, I'll kill ya real slow." was first featured in movie theaters in 1984. No One got it right. maybe next time. :)
Jazz band solo tryouts were this past Tuesday, and my teacher isn't telling us who got the solos until this up coming Tuesday.
Really nothing new other than that...I'm going to try to keep updating, I know I haven't been lately. But I'll try.
So coming up is Thanksgiving, which i like to think of as a big holiday. One of my favorites. I love watching the parade on TV, and the HUGE turkey we eat for dinner. I heard the new balloons this year are goin to be Kung Fu Panda, and Greg Heffley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The broadway performance this year should be from the current broadway shows "Wicked", "Mamma Mia", or " The Addam's Family".
OH! and I found out that this year the high school play my school puts on will be Beauty and The Beast. I think they should've done Wiked being that they did the Wizard of Oz last year. I guess it only made sense in my head...oh well. I don't participate in the play so it doesn't really matter to me. ANYWAY...I believe that's it. So stay musical and enjoy the last of the fall weather before it's SKI SEASON!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!! :)

So, halloween is tomorrow, but tonight I have a halloween party at the church. I'm going as the Wicked witch of the west. But I think tomorrow for trick-or-treating I'm gonna go as a zombie or a skeleton faced dude or something else that seems interesting.
As you can see, i'm trying something new on my question of the week. It's a trivia question this week. DO NOT LOOK IT UP! I want pure knowledge or guessing. Thank you :)
So thats it. I'll post tomorrow or Monday on how much candy I get! :)
Get lots of candy and have a spooky, scary, and creepy Halloween...mwoohahahahahahahaha! (deep-voiced evil laugh) :)

Halloween Costumes...

It's now official. We have decided our halloween costumes. I stuck to my word and will be the wicked witch of the west from the wizard of oz. My brothers Tyler and Christian will be ninjas in little black ninja uniforms and swords...i love it. Jimmy will be a fireman. He's so cute :)
So today my grandparents (<3) are coming so they can see Tyler's football game tomorrow. GO WILDCATS!
I was baking last night and today for dessert later, and yes grandma, i did make those apple donuts ;), they came out really good. I made a banana apple bread last night too. It's really good, but really heavy and filling.
I think we might carve pumpkins tonight. So maybe if my camera decides to work today, I'll post pics.
That's about it...soooo...bye! :)

Almost Halloween

So as you can see I've redesigned the whole blog to fall and Halloween colors. I love it! :)
Nothing really new and important...just same old stuff in music. I have a lesson tomorrow. And I believe I'm being tested on band music...great.
Jazz band is also afterschool tomorrow. So if anything new happens with hot chocolate I'll let you know :)
Well that's about it. We went pumpkin and apple picking though a few weeks ago. I made a few things with the apples. Like apple crisp, apple scones, and mini Italian apple donuts. Everything was great except the donuts. Haha I tried. But now I'm done. So I'll see ya soon :)

Sad News

I got some sad news Tuesday afterschool...my band teacher Mrs. Edwards says that us (Jazz band) can't play Hot Chocolate for the concert. It's too advanced for us. BUT! she did say that if we can pull off the alternate song she gave us, Frosty the Snowman, then maybe we can work on Hot Chocolate and see how far we get. I'll let you know what's going on with that.
Halloween's coming up soon. My mom says we should all be a character from the wizard of oz...I think I'll be the Wicked Witch of the West.;) Just for fun.
One more thing before I go...I believe we're possibly going pumpkin and apple picking tomorrow. I'll take some pics and post them under My Pictures. We'll get some nice big bright orange pumpkins just for you! :)
So I'll update as soon as I upload the pictures to the computer, and as soon as I find out about Hot Chocolate. Bye!

Jazz Band

WOOHOO!!! I made jazz band :)
audition went well. My teacher didn't make me do any scales, which was a big surprise, but even if she did I had a few ready :)
sightreading was awesome! I had the song on my iPod, so I listened to it a lot before! I knew what it was supposed to sound like! I loved it!
The actual audition piece was great! I didn't mess up at all! My teacher played an accompaniment cd to play with...the same cd I played with during summer band! Wow I'm reading this over and I sound a little full of myself...whoops
anyway, everything went well...I'll update soon!

today I got my NYSSMA medal from my evaluation last year. It's pretty nice :)
it's the same as last years, but it's cool. Just wanted to let you know. Alright school tomorrow so I'm headin to bed :)

Tuesday, September 7, 2010


When the words "first day of school" come up in a conversation, the average kid between the ages of 7 & 15 would normally react by flinching, "ugh"-ing, or hiding away in a cave somewhere. Well not me. I've waited for the first day of school all summer long. Today was my first day and all I can say is that it was amazing. :)
I have classes with all my best friends, and my teachers are great. It's gonna be an awesome year. =)
Jazz Band auditions will be next week in school...I'll let you know how that goes. Wish me luck!!!
That's about it. I'll update my pictures soon! Next time I get the chance. And I'll update on school stuff too! Enjoy the kid free months ahead! :)

Yesterday i went to the beach near my grandparent's house...fun stuff! I love the beach! Today I shall be leaving to go to "The Country House" with my brothers. Can't Wait! Having lots of fun here!
Music stuff: Missed a lesson and jazz band rehearsal this week, but I'll be back to go to next weeks.
Pictures: When I get home I'll upload pics and show them to you...my fans...that I love oh so much because it's just proof to my mom that yes, people do indeed like me.
But seriously, my only followers are my mom and grandma. Thank you! <3
Anyway, enjoy Summer (what's left of it anyway), and I'll keep updating.
Stay Thirsty My Friends. ;)

Fame and Fortune

Today me and my cousins and brothers made a "movie" on my grandparent's front yard...we like to call it "What would have happened if Dorothy took the red brick road instead of the yellow brick road." that, or "Dorothy's End". It was SO fun!!
I can't wait until Monday...BEACH BABY! yeahhh, i think I'm turning into my dad. for the past two months all I've heard from him is "VEGAS BABY!". yes it does indeed get annoying after 3 times. last i heard from my mom, they were in the M&M store. pretty cool. well, that's about all I have to say. OH! and i started summer band lessons and jazz band. EXTREMELY easy audition piece for jazz band next year. NOW I'm done. alrighty, so I'll keep updating with BEACH pictures, and more summer fun. and from the wise words of my Grandpa, "stay thirsty".

Summer Vacation

So far, nothing really special has happened yet. I think the next plans I have is the family picnic my family has every year. So that'll happen at the end of the month. Uhhh...nothing really. Just been hanging out at my house. So I suppose I'll update next time something important comes up. Happy Summer! =)

July 4th Weekend

This weekend I'm going to the Catskills for July 4th. Possibly a fair on Saturday or Sunday, and then fireworks Sunday night. I'll be home Monday to hopefully update, so I'll see you then (not literally but you know what I mean). Have a very Happy July 4th! :)

Friday, June 25, 2010


Today is officially (to me anyway) the first dy of SUMMER! Done with seventh grade. My mom is not happy with me at the moment. Why? Because I've just told her that a year from now I will officially be a freshman. YES! She says she's not old enough to have a high school kid. Yeah well, it's gonna happen anyway. :)
Plans for the summer? I believe I'll be at the "Country House" for July 4th weekend. I'll be at my grandparents house for about a week while my parents are gambling away at Las Vegas!! Good Luck! Maybe we'll go to the beach while we're there, visit the light house, no plans yet really, but it'll be fun either way.
Song updates: I'm not much further than I was last time I told you I was writing a song! It'll get there though!
Anyway, Enjoy Your Summer, and I'll keep updating! :)

NYSSMA results

I just got home from my NYSSMA solo evaluation. I got a 26/28 as my score. I'll take that! The scales I played were Bb, D, and Eb. Phew! I'm glad that is done and over with!

Thursday, June 3, 2010

NYSSMA Tomorrow!

NYSSMA tomorrow at 5:45!!! I'm so excited! But for a ten minute evaluation, it's at a school 1 1/2 hours away! So I'm taking the school bus to the high school, then we leave at 8, and get back here at about 9:30. But that's the only bad thing so I can deal with it. So wish me luck, and I don't think I get my score out of 28 until the end of the year, but I'll let you know as soon as I find out! Bye! =)

I'm now working on my NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) solo which I will be performing in front of a judge in shanendahowa hs. June 4th at 5:45. The solo is "Presto" composed by Muzio Clementi. Wish me Luck!

Good Morning!

Good Morning! Today I'll be heading out to Long Island to go to my cousin's first birthday party. It's a pink theme, so we all have towear pink. I spiffed up my shirt with a nice saxophone silhouette and music notes. I LOVE it! Talk to you Sunday or Monday when I get back!

Memorial Day Weekend

Have a Very Happy Memorial Day filled with bonfires and barbeques! Have Fun!

The Beginning

Hey, it's Pace! I'm TOTALLY new to all of this, so I'm taking it slowly.

What I plan to do with my blog is update you, my fans out there (and i know there's a lot), of the musical pieces I'm working on, and to post my nature pictures that i enjoy taking oh so much. So I hope I have fun with this, and I'll be back to update soon!
