Matthew-I loved how you began your talk with a poem. it instantly grabbed my attention. Your humor and passion also grabbed my attention. You have a very good speed and your topic was easily absorbed. Amazing Job!!!!Sage
Matthew, quoting the scotland anthem was awesome. Your talk reminded me of my own ted talk of connecting through poems. Last time I heard the star spangled banner, I too felt a surge of pride. Great talk!
Mathew, it was interesting having the opening being the Scotland anthem. Your connection to the overall theme of pride was very well laid out. You also connected to many nations not just America, you connected with many different time periods too. You also remained calm and collected. Excellent job Mathew.
Matthew- You had great examples, but as you were saying to others, maybe move around a little bit. You knew all of your quotes and poems very well. Great job!
Matthew- I really liked your TED talk. The way that you led in was amazing and it was a great hook to get everyone engaged. I liked what your topic was and it was really amazing and connective. If that makes sense. One thing that you could have done is moved around a little more, but you still did fine without. Great job.
You are a great speaker. I really liked your talk because it made me think about how music unifies us. Your talk was well practiced and your points were very interesting. I liked the saying, "An friend of a friend is a friend." It made me think about how everyone is connected. Great job!
Matthew- You had great data and examples to back up your idea. You seemed really confident and it added to make a great presentation. Absolutely great job!
Matthew,I think that you proved your points really well. But I do think that if you would have moved around a bit more you would have been able to connect with your audience better. I think your topic was important and proved a good point about music in todays world.
Matthew-You didn't really move around the "stage." Try to use all the room you have. I really liked your topic and it interested me. However music seemed to be a repeated theme. I liked your slide show it really helped your point. Good job!
Great job, Matt! Give me a high 5 after I'm done. I enjoy how well you utilized the slide show. Unification is what will allow a better society now.
Matt, you were a bit quiet, but I still was able to understand your point. I loved how you said that music unifies the world by relating to us that every country in the world has a national anthem. I thought it was very inspirational that regardless of political standards, we can all stand together if we have one thing that we may agree on, which in this case is music. Great job, Matt!
Matthew C: You talked quietly but I think that added to your presentation because it made people listen MORE. I think your point was awesome, I NEVEr would havev thought of something like this! I love how you use music but more specifially the anthem of countries. And I love how you altered quotes to make them fit your talk!
Matthew- Your subject was very interesting, and I really connected with it. It was very smooth, and your examples were very strong. Great work.
Matt- You looked at your slides very often and it seemed like you relied on them a little too much. You had really good timing, and a good speaking tone. Very well done!
Matthew C- Union and national songs painted a great picture in my head. You were really confident in yourself, and you underlined the topic of unity throughout the whole topic, and brought it back together right at the very end. Great job Mat!
Matt - Your speech was enlightening and entertaining. You presented a unique commentary on the meaning of music and its impact. I had no idea that music was such an intricate subject. You knew your material, and had a perfect slideshow. Great job.
Matthew: I like how you mentioned the Star Spangled banner giving many people nation pride. The power of music is very important! Great job!
I really liked your talk topic, it was interesting to hear the challenge to find unification through music. I thought that I was interesting and definately worth trying. Good job Matt.
The poem at the beginnig was a great way to prove your point and grab all of our attention. You also were well prepared and ready for anything. Nice job man.
Your presentation was really good! I like how you used the enemies and friends examples. you spoke well and your point was very well thought out and clear. Good job!
Matt- I loved your TED Talk I think that your idea of being united by music is a great one. I also loved the challenge at the end.
I liked how you used the song lyrics. If I was in your position I would have added in the audio to a couple of those songs.
Matthew- Good examples. Try to move a little bit more. Tyr to make it connect more to the audience, and inspire them with your talk. Good job.
You gave a lot of great examples of the unifying power of music! I am sure that everyone in the room was able to relate to at least one of your examples.
Matthew's TED Talk was very good. He had a good topic and great presentation style. I liked how he related the words of songs to his presentation. Good job, Matthew!
I thought it was really good. It was also good how you had words on your slides, but you didn't have to look at them to recite them. I also enjoyed the topic, and all the sources you brought in.
