TALKING ABOUT MUSIC ON SKYPE

We loved discussing with Patricia Johnston about the music industry and her job as a musician, artist manager and company director. Teenage students of upper intermediate level were thrilled to ask her questions about her action worldwide and listen to all the exciting answers she gave us.

Links to help students blog about their impressions:

  1. We had a great time with Mrs Patricia. We asked her some question about her job and she answered all of them with pleasure. This was something that we did for the first time and we were a little bit anxious but we had a great time and we gained valuable information about the music industry.

  3. I agree with you, Eva! We had a great time with Mrs Patricia. She was very friendly and that made us more entusiastic! I also visited the websides and I am really impressed. Firstly, I watched a video in which Gilad Hekselman is performing and I would like to say that he amazed me! Secondly, Kora looks like a very difficult musical instrument and I really want to listen Mory playing Kora. I also watched a video in which Line Kruse is playing violin and her mysterious but expressive music fascinated me! And last but not least, I really like the songs that Patricia produces for children and I describe her as a very creative person!

  4. I also aggree with all of you guys! Discussing with Patricia Johnston was an incredible experience for us, becuase, as we are still students, we cannot have an interview like this particular one, that easily. She was really friendly and kind and I suppose we're all grateful to her for letting us pose our questions! Thank you Mrs Patricia and thank you too Miss Christina, for providing us this opportunity! I really hope we'll make a special video just for her!!

  6. Our surprise activity; discussing with Mrs Patricia Johnston was simply wonderful! Despite our initial hesitation and shyness, Mrs Patricia was very cheerful and friendly to all of us and answered our question with enthusiasm and joy. She informed us about her occupation, which I really found very interesting, and also recommended us to watch some young, but simultaneously, incredibly talented artists. In my opinion, all them were so unique and I am convinced that they are going to be very famous in the future! To sum up, I want to thank Miss Christina and Mrs Patricia for this memorable experience and I wish we had the opportunity to communicate again with Mrs Patricia, since I believe she still has many stories to tell us..!
