GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 110
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You recently went to a concert and thought one of the singers was very good. You want to tell him how you feel.
Write a letter to the singer. In your letter
- say how you feel about his performance
- give details of your music-related activities
- explain how you would like him to help you with your music-related activities
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear Mr Mathew,
I enjoyed your vibrant and brilliant performance on 17th September in the Army Golf Stadium and this was one of the best live concerts I have ever been to. I was mesmerised with your music, performance and songs and I must convey my utmost gratitude for your dazzling performance. You were simply outstanding.
I am a university student and my major is architecture. Besides, I am a huge fan of music and a member of our university music team. In the team, I mostly play the drums and violin apart from writing some lyrics occasionally. Moreover, I have started learning to play the guitar and I find it quite amusing. I wish to start my own music band after finishing my studies and you have been one of my idols so far.
I am wondering if it would be possible for you to offer me some tips in playing the guitar. I also want to discuss some issues about writing lyrics as you are also an outstanding lyricist. I am hoping you would spare some of your precious time for me.
Thank you in advance.
