Music as Therapy?
Frustrated in a gridlocked?
Job got you stressed out?
The children have you going crazy?
You pop in your favorite tune and you take a deep breathand as if by magic for a few minutes nothing matters anymore!
No it's no magic! It's music and it's power!
Truly amazing isn't it?
Even plants responds to music as was proven by some researcherat a well known university in the USA.
Why? Many reasons, I am sure some scientist would quote somethingabout physiological responses to stimuli within the progressions of notes.
A psychologist on the other hand would no doubt say it's psychosomatic.
Myself I simply think that while we are focusing on the music we ignorewhatever is troubling us a kind of bio feedback effect so to speak.
The important fact of the matter is that it works!!!
That in itself is ample reason for me, I really dont care about any other reason there might be, it's not important except to that particular researcheror scientist with a thesis to prove.
I believe it's high time we move away from the television! I read somewherethere are more televisions being sold than tubs and showers combined whichgoes to show more brain being washed than bodies.
It's time for parents and children to get together and listen and talk about each others music. ask each other:
"Why do you like it?"
"What does it say?"Why is it important to you?
If you ask me it's a simple and easy way to make contact, to initiate communicationon a safe level and discover thing about each others you did not know...
Music as therapy? Why the heck not? It's a lot cheaper and make more sensethan most self help gurus that try to sell you some high price drivel...
Remember that famous phase that said "Make your baby listen to Mozart and youwill have a baby genius?
The study, in fact, showed it was a very limited and tempory effect and all the testshad been done on adults only!!!
That did not stop a whole slew of profit minded individuals and companies from exploiting this to make a bundle on a false assertion.
Music is not the end all but merely one more mean to make us feel better!
No more! No less!
Listen to music because it makes you feel good, simple enough?

"The real communicating artists seek unique expression. They are not interested anymore in sounding like their heroes, they are searching constantly, developing and refining their own unique voice."
Social Networking and Music: MySpace Puts It All Together in a Virtual Community
Today's music fan interacts with a "community" that is far larger than anyone ever dreamed possible before the widespread personal use of the Internet. This social networking is changing the way people market and sell music and it's doing so on a global scale.
Flaming Guitars! Minarik Fuels The Excitement of a New Generation of Musicians
From the Telecaster to the Flying V to the Iceman to the Warlock, some guitar designs are forever branded on our consciousness, and now there's a new one: the Minarik Inferno X-treme. The body shape erupts in furious fingers of flame. If ever there was a guitar design destined to ignite the imagination of young players, especially boys and girls who want to rawk, this is it.
Play Piano in the New Age Style
It's not what you play, it's how you play it. These words summarize the art of piano playing in general and New Age piano playing in particular. You could take 2 chords, and, if you were in the moment and in flow, communicate the utmost emotion and power.
MP3 Music Subscription Services. A Good Deal?
There's a reason Apple Computer dominates the legal 99-cents-a-download digital music scene: It does it right. Apple's iPods set the style and ease-of-use standards that other portable music players must try (so far unsuccessfully) to match. Its iTunes Music Store and iTunes software are equally unparalleled.
Review: The Dissociatives - Self Titled
In 1994 Daniel Johns and his group Silverchair were catapulted into the mainstream by winning a demo competition in Australia. Their single 'Tomorrow' is still widely regarded as one of the defining songs of the early 90s. Now, before you rush out to buy The Dissociatives you're going to want to sit down before I break this next part to you; This cd is not silverchair, it sounds nothing like silverchair, and you are only seeing comparisons because Daniel Johns is in both of these bands. It is best to keep these 2 entities separate, or you will probably end up enjoying them both a lot less.

Arranging for New Age Piano
A while back, I wrote an article that compared flower arranging to music arranging. While this may seem a world apart, it really isn't.
Warner Music Executive Payments
"In human life, art may arise from almost any activity, and once it does so, it is launched on a long road of exploration, invention, freedom to the limits of extravagance, interference to the point of frustration, finally discipline, controlling constant change and growth."

The Acoustic Guitar
The steel-stringed acoustic guitar is usually credited with being developed by C.F. Martin and Company sometime during the 1830s. Although other "gut-stringed" acoustics were around at that time, it was the Martin Company that introduced the idea of crossbracing underneath the soundboard which enabled the guitar to support the heavier steel strings. Because there is approximately 160 lbs. of tension created by the use of steel strings, they should never be put on a classic guitar, for it is not strong enough to carry them. But thanks in part to C.F. Martin's new design, the use of steel strings on acoustic guitars became fairly common by the end of the 1800s, and by the 1930s it became a standardized component.

The SR400's neck at the back hasa matte finish making it very easy to slide your hands up and down the neck.

Why Do Music Lovers Still Prefer to Buy Records?
In the late 1940's, the 45-RPM record replaced the 78-RPM record. The 45 was smaller, less breakable and could be made and sold more cheaply. Despite these advantages, it took ten years before the 78 became obsolete, and in the meantime, record companies sold their product in both formats. In 1982, the major record companies introduced the compact disc, which offered a smaller size, "perfect" sound, and less likelihood of damage in day to day use. As the compact disc offered a much larger profit margin than did the long-play record album (LP) the record companies were eager to rid store shelves of records once and for all. Given that the 78 lasted ten years after the introduction of the 45, it seemed likely that the LP would be gone from the market by 1990. The expected disappearance of the LP never happened. Despite the efforts of the music industry, music fans and collectors not only continue to buy records today, but sales of records and record-playing equipment are on the rise.
If Seals Can Sing, Why Cant You?
It sounds like a side show, doesn't it? It does to me. But it's true; researchers have discovered that some varieties of seals really do sing. Indeed, male leopard seals have been heard singing complex melodies in their lonely search for a mate. Likewise, male Weddell seals, which are a very social creature, lure their mate by improvising original melodies the way a master musician would in front of an audience.
The Music Industry and Its Lack of Talent
So it has come to this... what we see overrides what we hear. What we see now influences HOW we hear. And what we see drowns out all that is heard to the point that we are virtually deaf.
