Healing With Sound

Posted on February 16, 2017 in Healing

What’s the first thought that springs to mind when thinking of musical instruments? A band – marching, garage, jazz, rock, swing? I could keep naming the many ways which musical instruments play a part in life, but seldom is the first thought about their use in the healing arts.

Recently, I was invited to a Native American drumming ceremony that was being held to remember, honor and restore a parcel of land that had been neglected on the Tesuque Indian Reservation just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. My husband works as a residential paver and had a full schedule working with the land in his own way, so could not attend. I was on my own.  (more…)

Humans are ingenious when it comes to making music. From blowing on a reed of grass, or through a sheep’s horn to pounding on a hollow log – we’ve always found a way to express our natural rhythm.

What do you think makes an instrument popular? Is it the player or the instrument itself? After all, since music is everywhere and I propose, in everything, it’s a matter of coaxing it out for all to hear. It’s in the player. Good performers often elevate the quality of an instrument with their skill, talent and ability.

When you go to a concert you expect the artists will be playing with their favorite instruments to give their finest performance.

Our Earliest Instruments

Posted on January 26, 2017 in Musical Instruments

We take musical instruments for granted. We have never known a world without a drum, a horn or the sound of a mother humming to her baby. The human voice was the very first musical instrument, but was soon – in relative terms, followed by devices which more closely resemble the instruments of today.

Music is in everything if we stop and listen. For example, my cousin owns a 24 hour tow truck St Catharines ON and he has told me all about the different sounds the towing fleet makes when the various sized trucks are rumbling down the highway to help their next client. Another example that comes to mind, is of an old friend who owned a printing shop. As an amateur musician, he often found himself composing songs with a back rhythm of the churning beat of the printing press. The melodic beat set a tempo that developed into more than one of his musical compositions. Testimonies that music can be found anywhere.
