    Composition. When I was littel

    When I were thirteen years old I wanted to be a rock singer.I listened rock music every day.
    My favourite singer was “Suzi Quatro”.She had a rock band and she sang hard rock, Suzi shouted when de song finished.
    I decided to study music, my dream were to be a rock singer.
    My music teacher was a good pianist.He teached me to play the piano and singer without shout.However I still wanted to be a rock singer.I thought what my musical education would be good for my dream.
    I studied music five years, I played every day the piano. I enjoied playing the classical music at the piano.My favourite composers were Bach, Mozart…
    My dream didn’t come true, because when I were eighteen years old I didn’t to be a rock singer, I wanted to study , my dream were to be a teacher.
    Althougt, in my heart always will be are a good memory for that singer.
    I think what still dream to be sometimes a little rock

    Hi Marta My Composition When I was little…

    The summer holidays I used to go to Calella de Palafrugell. We used to go to the beach every morning.I used to go by bicycle whith my family every afternoon.
    We used eat “paella” every thusday because my mum was fishmonger it was tradition.
    Wen I were twelve years old I used to play basketball two days a week in the evening, because every saturday I used play the match.
    For Christmas I used go to see in the theater the play “Shepherd” (Els Pastorets) wiht my cousins. After that we used go to has a cup of chocolate in the granmum house. It was very nice!!

    See you tomorrow!!

    Hy Marta!!!! Sorry for the delay!!!! My composition from When I was little…..

    When I was little I used to go to Premià de Mar every summer, because my parents have a house in this country. In the morning I used to go every day to the beach with my friends!! In the afternoon I used to go with bike around the town.
    I remember that one summer my friends and me form a team of female soccer. This summer we used to play every day football, and than we play a game against the boys. It was a complety disaster because we lost, but we enjoyed very much. On Saturday night I used to go out because in the town square played “sardanas”. It was a wery speciale day!! I remember it with “nostalgia”

    Hy Marta!!! Now my summer holidays!! Sorry! (Más vale tarde que nunca!!)
    This holidays I traveled with my family to Riaño. Riaño is a little village near to León. We went in a campsite very beatiful, because it was very quiet and with breathtaking views. It was the first time that we traveled with one caravana and the experience was very nice!
    We did trainings, we visited villages and we did sports, specialy, water sports, because in Riaño it’s a very big dam.
    One day, in one of our trainings we saw “chamois” (rebecos). We was wery happy and we take photos!!In the campsite we know a family from Jerez and we befriended.
    We stayed 13 days at the campsite and we were very lucky with the time because it rain only for one day!! Our first intention was to make a map but… the campsite was so beautiful that we decided to stay. See you on Monday!!! Maria

    Hy Marta!! This weekend I work hard with the homeworks!!! Finally!!! Now, “my favourite things” composition.
    In my free times I like walking at the mountain. I think that walking at the mountain is better than walking in Sabadell, because in the mountain is mor quiet and silent. I also like going with the bike, but I think that going with bike is harder than walking, specialy, when the road is rising. (de pujada)I also like playing the piano, because I thing it’s a very nice instrument, but I don’t have the time for study it. I think that playing piano is more difficult that playing flute, because when you play piano the hands carry a different pace, while in the flute it’s easier.
    See you tomorrow, Marta!! Maria
