Kailee, Daughter of Persephone (kaileem98) | 1 comments What do you guys think about Julliard? I play the flute and I've always had a deep connection with music. My bf says I'm obsessed with it. Anywhere I am I'm either singing a song stuck in my head, or listening to my ipod.

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) you should go. It's a good school and that reminds me of a lot of people at my school. The singing part.

message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Julliard is really high-end though. Hard to get into.

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) So I've heard.

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) If you have a good backround, they might possibly considery you.

message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

Well, I don't really want to go there anyway. I'm best at music, but the writing talent calls!

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) Same, I only play piano, but I don't want that to be my career. :)

message 22: by L (new)

L (audinosbiitch) Guess how many songs are stuck in my head.

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) I don't want to know. Half of the kids in my history class (who are all in a singing conservatory) were all talking/singing the same song. Annoyance.

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

I want to play professionally soooo bad. I want to replace Jon Schmidt. But I love writing too much.

message 25: by L (new)

L (audinosbiitch) 20 freaking 1. 21

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) sry. CPU was being spazzy

Yes, try listening to 'popular' music for 90 minute class period. As in: Guns 'N' Roses, and all those other oldies rock bands.

message 28: by L (new)

L (audinosbiitch) No thanks! It's been upgraded to 22...

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) Exactly!

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) I haz a question: for the V7 in piano, what does it mean when you have V6/5? My teacher told me and wrote it down, but I lost that page. :(

message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

Hmmm...I don't know, actually. I'll get back to you on that!

message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

I had it written down somewhere...where?!?!?!?!

message 33: by [deleted user] (new)


V6/5 - is the first inversion of a 7th chord. The numbers , 6/5 is called figured bass, this is the way to tell what inversion the chord is in.
so 6/5 means the chord is in 1st inversion. The V (five) represents the fifth tone of the scale. G is the 5th tone in the key of C.

Iviana (The Sign Painter) Mʘ‿ʘP (thesignpainter) thanks. :D
