Star Qualities a Physical Therapist Should Have

Physical therapists (PT) know so well that there are many people who do not really take extra care of their bodies, and it has become quite a problem because every day, one’s body is being strained. Thus, many would seek the assistance of a Physical Therapist (PT) to rehabilitate their injuries as well as their body. These professionals are tasked to cater to the rehabilitation needs of their patients and to help them relax. By looking at them do their work, you can tell that it is not easy, but it is very fulfilling. If you want to become a physical therapist, you then need to possess the following traits:

  • Positive Personality

If you have a cheerful personality, you can help your patients become optimistic about their treatment and their recovery. They will most likely look forward to having that therapeutic session with you as they can see hope in the way you deal with them regardless of the severity of their physical condition.

  • Caring

Your patients can tell if you are sincere in taking care of them as they can see it in your face. You, therefore need to wear a winsome smile when dealing with your patients to make them feel that you really committed to helping them. Being grumpy wouldn’t help your patients; it can even make them more miserable, So, do them a favor by letting them see your positive side.

  • Knowledgeable in Their Field

You should have enough knowledge about your patient’s problem in order to help them recover. A knowledgeable PT lets patients know that they are being cared by the right person, and you should be able to show to them real progress under your care. You can then discuss with them their physical condition, and give them the assurance that they can still recover. Of course, you are not also expected to tell them lies, but even if their condition is hopeless, you can still make them feel fine. It all depends on how you communicate with them.

  •  Friendly

Being a friendly PT can give patients a rehabilitation worth going to; a PT who gets to know his/her patients and is interested in them can encourage them to go back to the rehabilitation facility to complete their treatment. It is really important that you can make friends with your patients and you can follow up with their progress.

Excellence Born from Training Talents

Children begin to dream at an early age, and many of them won’t be able to fulfill it. Thus, it is important to cultivate this dream and help them achieve it. Education plays a vital role in making their dream a reality.

Education is what prepares the children for the future, in some cases, their careers. In school, teachers become second parents as well as mentors. However, it is understood that the early education of the children always starts at home where parents would teach them some basic knowledge and help them discover their talents.

Talent Discovery in Education

Children start to become curious at an early age, and they look at things in different perspective. In fact, parents usually discover and help develop their children’s talents during their childhood years, and the school would then polish this talent. One good example is our very own Rudolf P. Golez who was taught to play the piano when he was only four years old. He was able to develop his talent to the fullest such that he is now a renowned musician who has performed in several concerts here in the Philippines and abroad.

Upon discovering his passion in music, he then decided to excel at it by going to Juilliard School and studying under Seymour Lipkin. Having one of the best musicians as his teacher and mentor, he became a recognized artist in the whole country.

Talents alone won’t help improve your passion. In fact, Rudolf P. Golez even went to a prestigious school for him to become who he is now, a genius world-class pianist.

Talent, Education, and Success

Rudolf P. Golez, with all the things he was taught by his parents and mentors, tried to test his skills during the First ASEAN Chopin International Piano Competition. He became the sole prize winner among all the contestants who joined.

His success comes from the root of where he got his talent and passion, his mother. He now serves as the Vice-President for External and Cultural Affairs at one of the most prestigious universities in his hometown.

He even organizes big musical and cultural events in the city as he wants to bring theatrical arts in his own locality.

If you are in the Philippines and want to avail our music courses under the deanship of non other than Rudolf P. Golez himself, or to pursue higher education, enrol at Liceo U. Visit us now at http://www.liceo.edu.ph/.

Music and the City’s Musical Prowess

The human race has been appreciating the value of music since time immemorial. When the ancient men discovered sounds, they started producing them by using bones, bows, and their own body parts. They even tried to combine all of those which resulted in discovering music which then became part of their lives. They used music for entertainment, rituals, and rites of passage. As civilization develops, man’s love for music grows even deeper. In fact today, we use music very often, and we really love it!

What Makes Classical Music Different

Modern music focuses more on the lyrics than what mystery one feels in listening to classical music. They are rooted in excellence and inquiry leading us to feel the message conveyed by the songs. The beauty of music comes from the depths of the thoughts and the emotions of the composer, then the perfect delivery of the singer. Beethoven, for an example, was a classical composer and pianist but it remains to be a mystery how a deaf person created great music that ended the classical era.

Importance of Music Schools

Music can be self-taught, but it’s difficult to learn it alone; it is important to have a mentor who prioritizes in helping you develop your talent. Just like Mr. Rudolf P. Golez and other classical artists whose career in music started with their interest in learning it and then, excel in the field later. They were able to achieve their dream through the help of highly qualified mentors in the school where they enrolled.

Indeed, music schools can help much in developing your talent and skills in order to become a great musician as they will provide you with highly qualified professors as well as the right environment that makes learning much easier and more fun.

Cagayan de Oro’s Own Classical Musician

Here in Mindanao, we have our own Mozart, Mr. Rudolf P. Golez. He was a protégé of the iconic pianist and conductor Seymour Lipkin. He had many successes in concerts and contests around the globe and is a great representation of Mindanao’s talent. He was also recognized by the Cultural Center of the Philippines as a soloist which is a great success for a local artist. A genius in his field, he continues to serve the city as an educator in music and arts.

The Wonderful World of Music Excites Me

I have always been fascinated with great musicians, and it was my dream to be on a big stage and sing my favorite songs. When I told my mom and dad about this, they were so happy and supported me all the way.

My First Music Lesson

When I was in high school, my parents hired a music teacher to teach me the basic lessons in music during the weekends. She also taught me how to play the piano. At first, it was not that easy, but since I was really determined to learn how to sing well and to play the piano, things became much easier for me.

Since we live in the countryside, and there were only 4 of us in the house including my younger brother, our place wasn’t that noisy, thus making it conducive to learning music. With that, I learned my lessons quite fast. Thanks also to my teacher who was really patient with me.

My First Public Performance

Being a member of our school “Glee Club” was a great opportunity as it was an avenue for me to develop my talent in music as well my skills in singing and in playing the piano. We had to perform in our school once a month and during special occasions. The best experience I had was when I joined in a mini concert as one of the highlights during the foundation day of our place which was attended by a good number of guests, including high government officials from the neighboring places. I really gave my best during the show, and I considered it as my first performance in public.

Pursuing My Dream

I became more inspired to pursue my dream of becoming a professional musician. I also continued getting good marks in all my subjects, modesty aside, and I graduated with flying colors!

When it was time to enrol in college, I already knew what I wanted. As expected, I enrolled in a music course. I then learned everything that I wanted to learn about music, and I was also blessed that I had excellent professors not only in my music subjects, but in other subjects as well.

Careers in Music
I was confident enough that after my graduation, I would have a great music career, and it really happened!

A graduate of a course majoring in Music can either be a performer or a teacher, depending on which field you can most likely excel. On my part, I chose to become a teacher as it allows me to fulfill my dream of performing on maybe, not a huge stage, but on a platform where I can see the happy and exciting faces of students whose future I am molding. At the same time, I can share my talents, skills, and even my dreams with them. Most importantly, I can help them become the best musicians and the best individuals they can be!

Do you feel the urge to develop your talent in singing and your skills in playing musical instruments? If you are in Cagayan de Oro city, you can enrol at Liceo U, one of the most excellent universities that offers music courses in the Philippines.

Do You Have What It Takes to Become a Medical Technologist?

The medical field is always appealing to young people; in fact, children usually portray the role of being a doctor, a nurse, an X-ray technician, or a medical technologist during their role-playing games. They are obviously attracted to wearing white and bringing a stethoscope, sphygmomanometer, or any medical equipment that they often see at their physician’s clinic during their regular visit. This can be one of the reasons why many of them want to become a medical practitioner when they grow up.

If you are one of those who dream to be in a medical school one day, then, pick your best choice as there are many options for you. For example, if you are really interested in the details of a person’s medical condition and you can work in a laboratory, then you are fit to become a medical technologist. This is especially true if you possess the following qualities:

  • You’re Interested in Science, and You Love Details.

It is a fact that your interest about Chemistry, Biology, Physiology, and other related disciplines is necessary in order to pursue a career in medical laboratory technology. You must be excited in trying to examine blood samples or specimens in order to get the best results. You should also be meticulous with details as your tasks include coding, compiling, categorizing, and calculating findings to ensure that the doctors can give an accurate diagnosis.

  • You Love a Quiet Environment

Remember that a medical laboratory technologist’s normal working day is mostly confined to the four walls of a laboratory room working alone or with few colleagues. In this type of profession, you won’t be interacting with patients the way other medical practitioners do, but if you love silence and deep analysis, then, this profession is just right for you.

  • You Don’t Get Bored Easily

As a medical technologist, you’ll be doing the same things everyday such as testing samples of blood, urine, specimens and the like. If you are not passionate about what you do, it is very likely that you’ll get bored with your repetitive tasks. However, if you love your job and that you are guided by the principle of helping a sick person get cured, then being in the laboratory the whole day won’t really matter.

  • You Are Compassionate, and You Act Professionally

Your work involves a lot of risks as well as of confidentiality since you are dealing with different specimens or samples taken from different people who are ill or who might be ill. Aside from taking the primary measures to protect yourself from possible infections, especially for contagious diseases, you should also ensure to keep your findings strictly confidential. They should only be revealed to the persons concerned. Thus, you need to have a heart that feels for others; don’t broadcast anybody’s laboratory test results as it is not intended for everybody’s knowledge. By keeping them to yourself, you are actually protecting the credibility of the person concerned. You are also able to show that you are a genuine professional.

If you have already decided to become a medical technologist, then choose the right school where you can take the course. In Cagayan de Oro city, you can enrol at Liceo U; it is one of the best universities that offers a Medical technology course in the Philippines. For more details, visit their website at
