2019上半年回顾应付多项比赛的挑战处理重叠的身份与项Youtube视频

离开了YouTube一个月,我终于回来了!我想与大家跟进我最新的近况,以及回顾我过去6、7月份忙的事项。也想趁这个机会记录下我经历的每个过程,在将来的日子叮咛自己。也许我的能够给你一些处理相关事项的想法。比如: 应付多项比赛时如何安排时间,以及如何应付重叠的身份与项目。

Like others who manage YouTube channel,
和其他做YouTube channel的人一样,

I am confronted with the difficulty of allocating jobs and doing YouTube.
我也是面对着工作和做YouTube时间上分配的困难。

I am now back to YouTube.
现在我终于回到YouTube来了。

Where have I been?
那过去我都到哪里了呢?

There are lots of choir’s activities happening in the past June and July,
合唱界在过去的6月和7月有非常多的活动,

especially competitions in the country.
特别是国内的合唱比赛。

As a choir member and as a choir conductor,
我作为合唱团员,同时也是合唱指挥,

I participated in MCE, MICCF, and
就参加了MCE, MICCF, 和

Pertandingan Koir Koir Kota Seni Shah Alam.
Pertandingan Koir Kota Seni Shah Alam。

I only owe KLICC to not participate.
只欠KLICC没有参加罢了。

Today is finally in the second half of 2019,
今天终于来到了2019年的下半年,

and I want to update and share some little stories on the first half of my music journey.
那我想在这一集里跟大家跟进与分享我上半年的音乐路上的一些小风小雨。

This year can be very good in my choral conducting career.
在合唱这一块来说,今年可以算是非常丰收的一年。

Because I’ve accumulated more experience in choral,
因为我又累积了更多合唱比赛的经验,

especially things I have missed.
特别是那些我遗漏掉的事。

Besides dealing with performances,
参加比赛除了要应付表演的曲目,

we also have to deal with lengthy process of the competition,
另外一样就是要面对冗长的比赛过程,

such as enrolling.
比如说报名。

Enrolling is simple, you just have to submit the registration form, registration fee, photo, and music scores,
参加比赛罢了嘛,交上报名表,报名费,照片乐谱就可以了咯,

please, what’s the trouble?
有什么麻烦?

In fact, there are many steps behind the preparation of these four documents.
其实咧,准备这4样文件的背后隐藏了很多的步骤。

For example: To hand in music score.
比如说: 成呈交谱。

Before you give the music scores to the organizer, you need to buy it first.
在你交乐谱给主办方之前,你要先买乐谱。

Before you have not bought the music,
在你还没有买乐谱之前,

you must study the rules and regulations about the repertoire to perform,
你要先确认比赛规则中规定的曲目类型,

and then look in that direction for the pieces you want.
再往那个方向去寻找你要唱的曲目。

Then only you can buy the music score.
然后,你才可以进行购买。

If you buy it from the internet,
如果你的乐谱是网购的话,

you must make sure that the music scores arrive before the deadline.
你还要预上交谱的截止日期,避免那个乐谱在截止日期过了才送到。

The filling out of the registration form is another threshold,
填写报名表也是另外一个门槛,

because the choir manager needs to determine the repertoire to be performed,
因为负责人需要确定演唱的曲目、

the number of participants
参赛的人数,

and the piano accompanying candidates,
还有钢琴伴奏人选,

so that he can complete the registration form.
他才能够完整的填写那份报名表。

And if you haven’t taken group photographs,
还有,如果你的合唱团还没有拍团体照的话,

then take a nice, complete picture before you hand it,
那你要拍张好看的、完整的才交上去。

because this picture is printed in the booklet of the game and represents your group.
因为这张照片是会印在比赛的小册子里面,代表你的团体的。

Next we’re talking about the challenge of performance,
接下来我们就说说表演方面的挑战好了,

which is to prepare students for the performance with limitations of time.
那就是准备学生的表演,同时要面对事件的限制。

How do you say that?
怎么说呢?

Preparing students for the performance is one of the things I enjoy most,
就是,筹备表演是我最享受的一个环节,

because I can help students solve some of their musical problems.
因为我可以帮学生解决他们在音乐上的一些问题。

Then I can witness the progress of each of their lessons.
然后,我可以见证他们每一堂课的进步。

But the problem is that choirs are only extracurricular activities at school,
但问题是,合唱团在学校只是课外活动,

so the training time that schools can give is very limited.
所以学校能给的训练时间是非常有限的。

The other is that there is a problem with the choir’s tuition fees,
另外一个就是合唱团学费有问题,

which tend to limit the training time limit.
往往会将训练的时间限制住。

Besides, student attendance rate is also a bit hard for me.
另外,学生的出席率对我来讲也是有一点吃力的。

Because students are in school, besides choir,
因为学生在学校除了参加合唱团,

they will also attend other activities during the same time as the choir training,
他们也会在训练合唱团的同一个时段去参加其他活动,

such as the prefect’s meetings, cheerleading, Red Cross Society and etc.
比如说巡查员的会议、拉拉队,还有红新月会等等。

So there’s no way to do, half the number of students will go disappear during half of the lesson.
所以无可奈何,我每次在讲课讲到一半的时候,一半的人数就会不见了。

Besides, there are also students who sometimes drop out of class.
当然,还包括一些时不时都会翘课的中中、小小的学生啦。

One reason I think, these students have skipped classes is that
这些学生之所以翘课,我认为的其中一个原因就是,

they have not realized the importance of their personal presence in the choir group.
他们还没意识到自己个人在团体里面的重要性。

I would like to appeal
在这里我想要呼吁间接,

to students, teachers and parents who are involving in choir directly or in directly.
还有直接参与合唱团的学生、老师,还有父母,

Don’t just start focusing on training 2 weeks before the competition.
不要等到要比赛前的两个礼拜才来紧锣密鼓的训练。

Learning singing in choir is just the same as learning other subjects in school.
因为学合唱跟学习其他学校里面的科目是没有分别的。

It is important to train them constantly and consistently so that
我们需要长期、连贯性地训练,

the students can learn the knowledge of music firmly.
学生才能够牢牢的把音乐的知识学起来。

Besides taking my students to the game,
除了带着学生去比赛,

I am a choir member myself.
我本身也是合唱团员。

So, a lot of times in the same game,
所以,很多时候在同一个比赛里面,

I will have overlapping responsibilities;
我会有重叠的身份;

or in the same game,
或者是在同一个比赛里面,

I will take different groups of students to the game.
我会带着不同组别的学生去比赛。

So, I needed to be careful in arranging the time of the performance and the training schedules,
所以呢,在安排表演的时间和训练的时间上要小心,

this is to avoid the clashing of schedules.
避免时间相撞。

Another thing to be ware of is,
另外一件要注意的事情就是啊,

don’t schedule the training lessons too tightly.
不要将团和团之间的训练时间安排得过分紧密。

Because we need our voice to sing and teach,
因为我们是靠实力吃饭的,

Therefore you have to give your voice a full rest after each lesson.
所以你要在每一次教完课过后让声音得到充分的休息。

This is to make sure there will be healthy voices to work in choirs especially in some months of intensive training.
这样子才能在一些有密集训练的月份里面,有把健康的声音带着各个队伍高声歌唱。

Now, the tide of the game slowly faded,
现在,比赛潮也慢慢的褪去了,

and I’m back to a relatively easy day.
我也回到比较平静的日子了。

So I’m back to YouTube,
所以现在我就回到YouTube,

and I’m going to go through teaching, vocal works, music compositions,
继续经经营教学、声音作品、音乐创作,

and some more fun contents,
还有一些比较好玩的创作,

such as Malaysian Slang videos, The Legendary of Jamban Goddess, etc.
比如说:马来西亚腔,和厕神记等等。

I also took this time to prepare for activities in my choir,
我也趁着这段日子来准备我手下各个合唱团里面的活动,

like concerts, and competitions to participate next year.
比如说:演唱会啊,还有比赛。

I’m going to participate in a musical myself,
我自己本身也会去参加音乐剧啊,

and there are upcoming concert,
还有一些演出,

and continue to study conducting.
还有就是进修我的指挥。

The process of preparing for a performance or a game can be lengthy.
准备表演或者是比赛的一些过程会比较冗长。

Moreover, there are many variables and unknowns that can be faced.
而且,其中还会面对很多的变数和未知数。

As a result, we will inevitably feel fear and worry,
因此,我们难免会感到恐惧和担忧,

or even feel powerless and do not want to continue to do.
甚至会感到没有力量,有种不想继续做了的感觉。

So, a lot of give and take times when dealing with the process.
所以,在过程中处理事务时会涵盖很多妥协择衷的时候。

When I’m faced with fear and worry,
当我在面对恐惧、担忧的时候,

I tell myself, “Just walk out of the comfort zone and
我都会跟我自己讲 “就当做是走出舒适圈,

learn from the new experience.”
吸取全新的经验。

Just like eating vegetables, it is not tasty to eat, but there is nutrition, so still eat!
就像吃菜这样,菜不好吃,可是有营养,所以还是吃啦!这次的Youtube视频分享到这里结束。
