Band 9.0 Sample Answer :

 I would like to meet Kenny G, the saxophonist. I first listened to his music when I was very small, starting with the well-known piece “Forever in Love”. It was so melodious and relaxing that every time I listened to it, I felt like I was on cloud 9. Recently, Kenny G decided to hold a concert in Vietnam and it quickly became a major news story, covered in all of our media from newspapers to TV, and most radio channels. For people like me, who have been listening to his saxophone recordings since young, this was a once in a lifetime chance to meet him in person and listen to his music at a live concert.

Many people are of the opinion that being a musician isn’t a contribution to our society. However, I think that any career that we choose to pursue plays an important role in our lives. As is a businessman important, so is a musician. Imagine a world without music, it would definitely be dull and boring. In addition, music also helps to soothe our soul and relax our brains after a hard day at work. Although we cannot quantify its benefit, the positive effects that music brings to our lives are undeniably worth valuing.

Vocabulary

  • saxophonist: [noun] a person who plays the saxophone.

Example: At the music concert, I thought that the saxophonist and the pianist were particularly good.

  • piece: [noun] here we use “piece” to mean a “piece of music‟. We usually use it to refer to classical music or jazz –not modern or rock music.

Example: At the concert, Kenny G played two pieces that he had written himself.

  • melodious: [adjective] music which is pleasant to listen to is “melodious”.

Example: The piece was so melodious that I remember it whenever I am feeling relaxed and comfortable.

  • on cloud 9: [expression] extremely happy.

Example: When I passed the exam, I was on cloud 9.

  • hold a concert: [verb phrase] to have a concert – we also use “hold a meeting/hold a competition” in the same way.

Example: The organizers decided to hold the concert in New York.

  • once in a lifetime: [expression] used to describe something special that is not likely to happen to you again.

Example: When my friend invited me to Brazil, I knew that this was a once in a lifetime chance to visit the Amazon rainforest.

  • live concert: [noun] a concert when people are watching and listening when the event is actually taking place.

Example: One thousand people attended the live concert to hear the musicians perform in person.

  • soothe our soul: [verb phrase] to make us feel relaxed and peaceful.

Example: Rock music is loud. So I prefer to listen to classical music to soothe my soul.

  • quantify: [verb] to express something like an amount or number.

Example: The pleasure that we get when we see or hear something beautiful is impossible to quantify.
