Evidence Of Learning
On the road as a Singer...
For singing I want to learn more about the different styles and genres of music and music background. I've been interested in singing since I was about five when my mom taught me the song you

Assignment Description: Sight read music at any tempo in different difficulties
Rationale for inclusion: This assignment is important to learn because you can easily pick up any type of music without struggling how to sing it . I've learned intervals of notes when sight reading which is helpful in difficult music. This assignment will help me in the future of music because it's an important ability to learn soon to become more skillful and professional.

That's necessary for skills and ability is communication with others, reason and problem solving, managing myself, people, time, and other things to reach your goal or priority. You also have to be able to work with others whether it's a crew, manager, etc. These simple skills and abilities are needed in the long run to become a successful singer or performer.
On the job training isn't common for an average singer, but you do receive critiques and positive comments from your peers and learn from your mistakes. However, if a singer is self-employed they are responsible for their training. On the other hand, you can work on a variety of styles and earn/gain more professionalism and potential through practice. You still have to pass through education strictly after school. A definite requirement is to have the ability to sing and perform without having any educational standards or requirements. The lowest level of education is to be a singer and have a high school diploma and a GED .
