Practice Makes Perfect

I believe practice makes perfect. When you practice something for hours, days, or maybe weeks, and once it is time to perform it you are prepared.

I play the clarinet, and it is really hard to play a new piece of music, because I have never seen it before. It takes me an hour or two of practicing everyday until I know how to play it. I practice my marching band music too. Since we have played these over 500 times they’re a piece of cake. On the last two football games we are going to play these songs on the football field and march. When it is time to perform these twelve songs it is going to be easy as one, two, three. It is going to be so much fun!

Another thing I practice is all-region. It is ten times harder, but I practice this when I can. All-region is a try out when they put you in a certain band by how good you play your music. It can help you in your future, sometimes college scholarships are given to students for playing well. This is why I practice my clarinet everyday.

Also another thing is that I am in the soccer team for my church. It feels so awesome! We practice every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at the soccer fields in the Tyson Park next to Helen Tyson Middle School. Every two weeks we have a game against our biggest rival, Rogers. Since we practice these three days for three hours straight for two weeks, we have enough time to practice and they haven’t had a chance to beat us.

It is also the same thing with my brother-in-law’s soccer team, except they practice everyday for one hour to two hours at the All Star Arena. With all their practicing their soccer team is in second place. It is so cool! They are almost ready to play the first place team, but if they win they move up to first place which is so cool.

Practicing makes you really good at some things, and if you keep practicing you get even better.
