Recruitment of applicants for 2021 Summer Song Camp begins

Jubilee School will start accepting applications for 2021 for the ‘Summer Song Camp’, a representative event.

In accordance with the school’s policy, all events will be held online this year, just like last year. The application process will take place for about two weeks from June 14th to 30th, and the Song Camp will be held for a month from the orientation on Friday, July 2nd to July 30th.

The award section consists of a solo work, a joint work section, and each section such as lyrics writing, top line making and track making.

The Summer Song Camp is a songwriting competition that is held for students and graduates of Jubilee School, which is the third year of this year.

We hope that this year’s contest will also bring forth diverse and rich Christian songs.

History of Memorial Day

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. It’s difficult to prove the origins of this day as over two dozen towns and cities lay claim to be the birthplace. In May 1966, President Lyndon Johnson stepped in and officially declared Waterloo N.Y. the birthplace of Memorial Day.

Regardless of the location of origins or the exact date, one thing is crystal clear – Memorial Day was borne out of the Civil War (which ended in 1865) and a desire to honor our dead. On the 5th of May in 1868, General John Logan who was the national commander of the Grand Army of the republic, officially proclaimed it in his General Order No. 11.

Part of the history of Memorial Day will show that in the Order, the General proclaimed, “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land.” Because the day wasn’t the anniversary of any particular battle, the General called it, The date of Decoration Day.

On the first Decoration Day, 5,000 participants decorated the graves of 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried at Arlington Cemetery while General James Garfield made a historic speech.

New York was the first state to officially recognize the holiday in 1873. It was recognized by all northern states by 1890. Differently, the South refused to acknowledge the day and honored their dead on separate days. This went on until after World War I when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war.

With the Congressional passage of the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 – 363), it is now observed on the last Monday in May by almost every state.

This helped ensure a three day weekend (Memorial Day Weekend) for Federal holidays. In addition, several southern states have an additional separate day for honoring the Confederate war dead: January 19th in Texas; April 26th in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi; May 10th in South Carolina; and June 3rd (Jefferson Davis’ birthday) in Louisiana and Tennessee .


Spring Quater Orientation

On April 5th, Spring Quater Orientation was held online.

The main content of this orientation was the changed teaching method of the master’s songwriting course. From this spring quarter, the practical course, which was conducted as an individual lesson, will be integrated into individual and group lessons.

This is to help each individual find their strengths as a songwriter. There are several types of songwriters: Lyricist, Performing Songwriter, Songwriter-Producer, Staff Writer, Top-Line Songwriter, etc. Through individual lessons, students learn the skills of the overall songwriter type and experience various types through collaboration in group lessons so that students can know the type that suits them and have a balance.

These changes are in line with the future direction of the school.
Jubilee School will be transformed into a professional Christian songwriting school over the course of this year.

The Spring Quarter begins on the 7th.

About Good Friday

Every year Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter and this year it falls on April 2. According to the Church’s Lunar calendar, Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after Paschal Full Moon which is on April 4th this year. It is on this that the Christians commemorate Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. It is a day of grief, penance and fasting for Christians all over the world. The day is also known as Black Friday for the same reason. Good Friday aka Holy Friday also marks the end of Lent which is a 40-day fasting period for Christians.

Good Friday is about the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. According to many reports, it was on this day that Christ was arrested and executed. Good Friday is considered holy because on this day, out of his love for everyone, Jesus Christ gave his life as a sacrifice while suffering for the sins of people. It was because of this gesture that humanity got a fresh start and all their sins were dismissed. It is also said that the aforementioned crucifixion took place around AD 30 or AD 33.

Now the question that arises is – if the day has such a sad history, why is it known as Good Friday? According to belief, the term actually came from the words God’s Friday. However, there is another group of people that believe that ‘Good’ stands for Holy and that is why the day is also known as Holy Friday.

Though Jesus Christ was crucified on Good Friday, it was on Easter that the son of God resurrected, according to Bible. It signifies that good always wins and the fact that he went through so much suffering for the sins of humanity shows how much he loved everyone.

Final Exams Start on the 17th

As of today, all classes in the Winter Quarter are over and the final exam period is from tomorrow to the 23rd.

The results of the previous survey on class evaluation and satisfaction show that the academic achievement of the winter quarter is also very high, so the faculty expects that the students’ test results will be upgraded overall.

In addition, as school and students’ expectations for on-site classes are rising from the spring quarter, the office plans to compile various environmental data and announce the policy soon.

The school office gives deep thanks and glory to God for the academic achievement and student satisfaction that went without incident this quarter as well.

Spring Quarter Registration Begins

Registration for the Spring Quarter starts tomorrow the 15th

Many students expected to take classes from spring onwards due to the government’s massive dissemination of the Covid-19 (Wuhan Pneumonia) vaccine, but the office decided not to open the campus until this year.

The reason is that since the vaccine has been distributed since this year, the certainty of its effectiveness cannot be guaranteed yet, and since the school building is small and closed, it is still premature to open it offline.

Office is considering a number of options to make up for the gaps students feel due to online classes.

Jubilee School hopes that this year, both students and faculty will be able to finish the program in good health.

The 2021 Winter Quarter began in earnest.

The 2021 Winterl quater began with classes on January 4th.

Like the previous quater, all classes are conducted online in this quater. In the last quater evaluation, the collaboration method between students, group lectures and 1:1 lecture collaboration, and flexible class time planning method, which students actively supported, were further upgraded and applied to this Quater.

The school has doubled the media department this time to help students clear all classes without a hitch. The effect was greatly revealed from the first day of class. The same phenomenon as before, where the flow of classes was cut off, disappeared as online communication was conducted almost without time lag.

The students expressed their great satisfaction with this and greatly raised their enthusiasm for the academic achievements of this winter quater 2021.

Winter Quarter Orientation

On December 30th, there was an online winter quarter orientation.

In the results of a survey on quater last fall, it was reported that the intimacy of school members improved after all meetings including classes were turned online. As if reflecting this, this year’s first orientation was more exciting than ever.

This time, there was a joint performance of the winner and runner-up at last year’s Song Camp, especially after completing all the steps. Song Camp is a summer quarter event of Jubilee School, where all graduates and enrolled students participate. All of the winners last year were graduates. Naturally, their performance became a graduate’s performance. At the showcase stage prepared by the school, the performance was held online for about an hour, and all were broadcast online.

Three of the contents of the performance were self-composed, and the introduction of the song naturally became their testimony and expressed great grace to all who attended.

We would like to express our deep appreciation to the graduate winners who inspire our freshmen through their performances.

A short story about Christmas – Merry Chirstmas!

Christmas morning in 2020 has dawned.
We see a holy, warm light in everything that surrounds us.
I don’t know how warm my heart was when I was especially celebrating White Christmas. Because it seemed that God had covered this sin-stained world in white.

However, this Christmas is not just a warm heart.
These days, many people call Christmas X-mas or just holiday. Some Christians call it that way. Some even swear that Christmas is called Christmas.
Those who do not like to have God in their hearts try to erase Jesus from the history of this world.

Christmas is a day of warm grace that God loves us sinners.
This day allowed us to see God, to know God, and to be saved.

Praise more, Christians. And let’s declare it more boldly. Joy to the world!!!

Merry Christmas

The Fall Quarter completes successfully

The Fall quater was all over on the 16th. School staff and students thank God for the safe completion of a course in the online class, where everything was experimental.

Instructors and students expect that this quarter’s achievement will be higher than last summer. This is because the technical team revised and supplemented many processes, making the class much smoother.

After all the exams, the school staff, instructors, and students attended a closing service led by the Chapel Worship Band together online, and dedicated all schedules for this quarter to God.

Then they greet each other happily and finish all the steps.
