“新空下” National Schools Xinyao Singing and Songwriting Competition 2019

为了延续与传承华族文化,激起新一代的新加坡学生对新谣与华文的热情,并提供学生一个交流切磋的平台,推广华文学习委员会主办,裕廊先驱初级学院、弹唱人制作室和《联合早报》联办2019年“新空下”全国学生新谣歌唱及创作比赛。在今年的比赛中,我校学生获得了优异的成绩。来自1D班的黄湤鈏和姐姐创作的《华佗》这首歌获得了创作(创意)组的季军,而来自1I 班的李欣颖同学,也和她的姐姐创作了《梦蝶》这一首歌,获得了创作(公开)组的优胜奖

李欣颖的学习心得

“这次的活动让我获益不浅。我是与姐姐和她的朋友一起参加这个比赛,从中获益不浅。

小学时,我一直喜欢写歌词,可是对自己没有信心。我觉得年幼的我,是不可能写出一手好词的。可是,今年我决定踏出第一步,挑战自己。虽然我没有机会进入大决赛,但我很庆幸自己能入围半决赛,拿到优胜奖。

我在作词时,遇到了种种困难,如没有灵感、无法填上适当的歌词、无法让歌词押韵等等。从中,我学到了我们一定不能再遇到困难时感到畏惧。所谓“不到黄河心不死”, 我们在遇到困难时不应该逃避,而是要坚持不懈,保持乐观的心态,克服所有困难,继续勇往直前。最终,我们从庄子的《庄周梦蝶》中得到了一些灵感,有感而发,写下了我们的歌曲《梦蝶》。

现在蓦然回首,我从老师们给予我的指点,学到了很多。我发现写词不仅仅需要用技巧,也需要用心去写。一手好词不仅应该传达信息、突出主题,更要揭示此人的内心世界。只有当我们沉浸在写词中,真心的体会,我们才能把想表达的情感表达出来。

其实,我想和大家分享的心得就如《梦蝶》想要带出的主题一样。我相信我们都会有崇高的理想,属于自己的梦想。有些人的梦想看似遥不可及却是有能力使它实现的梦想,有些人的梦想却被认定为不实际。可是人生如梦,梦如人生,人生一眨眼就会过去,希望大家会像蝴蝶坚信自己能飞过沧海一样大胆尝试、努力奋斗、追求梦想。就算不切实际,就算会失败,就算不被支持,至少你勇敢尝试过。

“生命之权,操之于己”,生命短暂,我们应该把握每分每秒,做想做的事。希望当我们每一个人蓦然回首时,就算一无所有,至少我们没有后悔过。

总的来说,今年的“星空下”是我第一次踏出舒适圈,勇敢追求梦想。它让我永生难忘。”

Shernice Ng’s sharing 黄湤鈏的学习心得  

“I am deeply thankful and honoured to be given the opportunity to soar with DHS to greater heights. Thank you to everyone who voted, came down to watch the performance, and supported us in one way or another! Through this Xinyao Competition, I’ve learned much, not only from others but from myself too. There’s a quote of “我们都是和自己赛跑的人”, as long as we’re successful in improving ourselves, we are the champions! My sister and I were able to reach our goal of encouraging more people and students to 爱上华文 through our composition 《华佗》. That was done through the intended use of simpler words and catchy music. Thank you for your support!”
