Differences The Start of Art Edvard Munch was born in Norway in 1863, and was raised in Christiana. He was born a sick child, and was unable to go to school in the winters because of the harsh weather. Edvard was related to famous painters such as Jacop Munch, and Peter Munch.

After his mother's death his father and aunt was forced to raise him and his other siblings.Edvard's father suffered from a mental illness. This played a major factor in how he was raised.

It was in the 1940s that swing music gained popularity and influenced jazz 3 Bebop, big band jazz, and Dixieland jazz emerged as other jazz genres. 4 An improvisatory jazz style was developed in the 1940s and 50s under the name cool jazz. 7 As jazz developed, other genres of music began to be influenced by it. The genre of rap was one of them. People who had never heard jazz before began to listen to it in the 1950s 1 5 2 In the 1920s and 1930s, blues music became increasingly popular 6 A wide range of styles and sounds were explored by musicians as the genre gained popularity. As jazz developed from the blues in the 1930s, it became its own genre 8 Get into the blues and jazz mood. Jazz that is done in a marching band style is called Dixieland style jazz, a style characterized by fast pace and use of improvised music. The trombone plays the bass note to signify the change in harmony, and it is the most important note in jazz. The drums, tubas, and banjo play a rhythm in a flat four beat with no accents. The early groups didn't use a piano. A genre of jazz that is characterized by its relaxed, mellow sound, cool jazz is also known as West Coast Jazz. It incorporates elements of technology into its sound, including synthesizers and other electronic devices. Characterized by a 12-bar chord progression; often features a call-and-response between the singer and the band Blues is a genre that has a slow, pensive and musical feel to it. The blue notes are used in the music and hence the term "blues". The notes are usually played on the third and seventh degrees of the scale and give the music its "blue" sound. Swing is a genre of jazz that is characterized by its up-tempo rhythms, catchy melodies and big band ensembles. It features a swinging rhythm and a 4/4 time signature. It often features big band ensembles, making it an adventurous genre of music. New Orleans jazz is characterized by its use of call-and-response and improvisation, as well as the use of brass instruments such as trumpets and trombones. The music is also often intense, due to its focus on collective rather than individual playing. Chicago style jazz is characterized by its use of horns, often complex arrangements, and a saxophone. Ease and relaxation in playing style gave way to tension and drive; soloists became more important than collective improvisation. King Oliver and others added to the sound of the blues. The time signature changed from 4/4 to 2/4 (accenting beats 2 and 4 rather than 1 and 3). Bebop is a genre of jazz characterized by fast tempos and improvisation-heavy chord progressions. complex harmonies,It often features solo improvisation by musicians who play with a lot of energy.

Transcript: Do YOU know? Sarah's Story THANK YOU! When someone helps you this week, acknowledge it with gratitude using the magical words. You have received help. Now it's YOUR turn :) Take initiative to help 3 other people. You may start with small tasks (e.g. lending your friend an eraser, picking up your friend's things from the floor, switching off the fan, cleaning the board). Go on to bigger tasks as you go along (e.g. explaining work to your peers, helping your teachers out, helping your family out) Many people just say "Thanks". But does it sound like you mean it? You may think, "Well, saying 'Thanks' is good enough! It is better than nothing!" Is that true? HOW do you thank someone? "It's better than nothing. It's good enough!" Sarah woke up one day and realised she could not find her school uniform. She rushed to her mother and shouted frantically, "Mom! I can't find my uniform!" Mother said that she had washed the uniform the previous night and it was still wet. "What am I supposed to do?" wailed Sarah. What do you think? Did you guess it right? Was what Sarah's mother did really good enough? It's the same with 'Thanks'. Just using one word is not always enough. Just like Sarah... the sheet WAS better than nothing. After all, it did cover her. But there are better ways to dress! Right? Your goal is not just to say the words, BUT TO MAKE THE OTHER PERSON HAPPY with sincere words of appreciation. Mother told Sarah to follow her. She pulled the white bedsheets off Sarah's bed and wrapped it around her. Finally, she took a safety pin and pinned it at her shoulder. "Now, you can go to school," Mother said with satisfaction. Sarah protested, "I can't go to school like that!" "Why not? It's better than nothing. It's good enough!" APPRECIATION What are the 2 most powerful words in the English Language? Task: "Pay It Forward"


Transcript: The youth cleaned his mother's hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother's hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother winced when he touched it. This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fees. The bruises in the mother's hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his education, his school activities and his future. After cleaning his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother. That night, mother and son talked for a very long time. Next morning, the youth went to the director's office. The Director noticed the tears in the youth's eyes, when he asked: "Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?" The youth answered," I cleaned my mother's hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes' “I know now what appreciation is. Without my mother, I would not be who I am today. By helping my mother, only now do I realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done on your own. And I have come to appreciate the importance and value of helping one’s family. The director said, "This is what I am looking for in a manager. I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life.” “You are hired.” This young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates. Every employee worked diligently and worked as a team. The company's performance improved tremendously. A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop an "entitlement mentality" and would always put himself first. He would be ignorant of his parent's efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person must listen to him, and when he becomes a manager, he would never know the sufferings of his employees and would always blame others. For this kind of people, who may be good academically, they may be successful for a while, but eventually they would not feel a sense of achievement. They will grumble and be full of hatred and fight for more. If we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying our children instead? The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect. " Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?" "Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Besides, my mother can wash clothes faster than me. The director said, "I have a request. When you go home today, go and clean your mother's hands, and then see me tomorrow morning. The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back home, he asked his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to her son. The director discovered from his CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent. He asked, "Did you obtain any scholarships in school?" the youth answered "no"." Was it your father who paid for your school fees?" "My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.” he replied." Where did your mother work?" "My mother worked as clothes cleaner.” One young man went to apply for a managerial position in a big company. He passed the initial interview, and now would meet the director for the final interview.
