A Noteworthy Duet of Music and Technology

An energized audience of sixth-grade students filled the auditorium at Samoset Middle School for a recent assembly led by Brent Daniels, an award-winning composer, producer, sound designer and recording artist. 

Daniels, whose most recent work has appeared in numerous notable movie trailers, wowed students with his ability to improvise and create music using only sounds he created himself. With help from several student volunteers, Daniels brought to life a musical production composed of words spoken by the students. Throughout the assembly, students learned about several areas of sound design, including different ways to make sound and digital sampling techniques. 

At multiple points during the production process, Daniels reiterated the accessibility of technology that is capable of mirroring the musical production he and the students crafted. 

Captivating Speaker Shares Inspiring Messages With Students

Captivating Speaker Shares Inspiring Messages With Students photo
“We should all outline our lives in pencil, not pen,” Rohan Murphy loudly projected across the Samoset Middle School auditorium to an audience of eighth-grade students. Murphy, a motivational speaker from Islip, New York, encouraged his student audience to try new things and to not be afraid to fail in the process.

In his second year speaking at Samoset Middle School, Murphy shared the humbling story of his journey through life as a man with no legs. A successful high school wrestler, collegiate wrestler and Penn State University graduate, Murphy outlined his struggles growing up disabled and undeniably inspired the audience with his fearless determination to succeed in the stories he shared. Murphy emphatically challenged students to embrace each challenge in life and to never give up, to be inclusive, not exclusive and to look past excuses. 

The presentation closed with a question-and-answer period before Murphy left students with one last inspiring message. “Everyone has a choice to be average, good or great. Choose to be great, choose to be the greatest you that you can be.”
