Choosing The Right Musical Instrument Sets For The Adult Amateur

images13

We all have a few of those childhood dreams that fell to the wayside as we grew up. We were either too busy or too involved in something else or were too poor or just kept forgetting about it. It doesn’t matter why we never learned to play the instruments that we wanted to, what matters is that now that we’re adults, are we going to learn to play the musical instruments we dreamed of? While shopping for the musical instruments of our dreams, we keep running across the “learn to play” instruments and book sets. They look like they were probably designed for kids, but the instruments look like they are almost high quality enough to get away with playing. So can anyone really learn to play a musical instrument from the “learn to play” series? To be honest, those who learned to play at least one musical instrument as a child most likely can learn to play another musical instrument form the “learn to play” series provided we at least learned the basics of reading music. Being able to at least read the basic scale from sheet music will help tremendously when trying to learn to plat a musical instrument from a book. Some people do very well learning to play musical instruments from a book, but the people who do very well all have one thing in common, they are self learners. Those of us who were born in the mid to late seventies and beyond grew up in a system of education that everything was handfed to us, thus the majority of us do not learn very well on our own. We need someone to hold our hands and teach us note by note to play a musical instrument, not to mention trying to learn other things. Learning to play a musical instrument from a book requires a certain amount of self teaching ability. Without the ability to “figure things out along the way,” learning to play a musical instrument from a book will prove to be quite frustrating, although it can most certainly be done. If our desire is strong enough and our patience can run fairly deep, then yes, we can learn to play a musical instrument from a book. There are few things quite as satisfying as accomplishing something like the challenge of learning to play a musical instrument from a book. As we learn to play any musical instrument without the guidance of someone else, just like kids, our confidence grows. For adults, learning to play a musical instrument from a book may very well be the realization of a childhood dream, and there’s nothing but pure magic in that.

The Musical Traditions And Instruments Of The Zulu

images16

African music is the music of Africans who live in a large region of 50 nations, each with a special culture, history and language, South of Sahara. Zulu musical instruments are part of this multilingual culture. African music has some distinct characteristics: the use of repetition is one of them. Another important characteristic is the polyphony; this is the combination of different musical parts played simultaneously.

The history is marked by the awesome military strategies of the Zulu King Shaka. The King’s and his warriors’ campaign of expansion is well known in world history. Zulu rich traditional culture includes songs, dances and colorful rituals, Zulu musical instruments are spectacular and original. A variety of Zulu musical instruments are well known, s well as the traditional Mine dance; Zulus have longtime used their music as a cry for freedom.

African music is really rich in modes of expression: drum ensembles are using Zulu musical instruments from the percussion family. Each drummer uses special methods to produce sounds to distinguish his drum from the others. Iron bells are very popular Zulu musical instruments; they are used to produce a repeated sound to help the drummers to play at the correct time.

Zulu musical instruments, rare and very special
The akadinda is a king of xylophone; two groups of African musicians are playing simultaneously. The first group is playing repeatedly the same pattern; the second group plays to fill in the missing sounds. Groups of Zulu musicians play also using flutes, trumpets or xylophones. Each player plays a single note in a strange rotation with the other players. The result is a polyphonic piece, characteristic to African music.

Musical practices of South African people were observed from many years; Zulu musical instruments are obsolete. Venda mbila is an old Zulu musical instrument; it is not used anymore. Reed flutes, contrary, are still very popular. The influence of foreign cultures and civilizations causes many of old Zulu musical instruments to become obsolete.

Musical instruments such as tsonga – a horn, ingungu – a friction drum, nkoka – a drum, pedi – a flute, venda – musical bow and stick, deze and demba – thumb piano and resonatos, umfece – ankle rattles are almost obsolete.

To preserve this awesome heritage of Zulu musical instruments, the necessary information was entered into a database; each Zulu musical instrument was digitally photographed to preserve all information about it.

An excellent ukulele player is young Julia Nunes who records herself playing each of the parts of a song then, by editing, makes a final version of the song that features herself playing all the parts of a song on the ukulele.

Playing An Instrument Should Start Young

One of the best things that a child can do when in the young years is to take a lesson in an instrument. Many kids take piano lessons and they do this because their mom and dad make them do it. Piano lessons are the most popular because it is the easiest to find a teacher for, it has the most practical application and the family usually already has a piano in the home.

However, not all kids want to play the piano. Some would like to learn how to play the guitar. While this is not the most practical, it is reasonably practical and probably second in line to only the piano as the most practical. One way for the parent and the child to both get what they would like in this manner is to let the child take guitar lessons contingent on their continuing their piano lessons. This also makes the child a lot smarter and able to handle a little bit more. They become talented in both the piano and the guitar and they are able to use those skills throughout their life. This will also make learning yet another musical instrument a lot easier in their later teen years if they decided that they wanted to try another instrument for the high school band or something like that.

Finding someone who teaches guitar lessons, especially for children, may seem difficult at first. However, it is usually as easy as going to a local guitar shop and asking them. Often times they will know of people who give lessons and may even have some fliers from people who want to give guitar lessons.

The skills learned in playing the instruments are not the only skills obtained. Discipline and coordination of the hands are other skills that are gained that can translate into many aspects of life. Determination is another skill that can be acquired through early lessons in the piano, guitar or some other instrument. All of these are very applicable to many things in life.

There is no doubt that the parents are the major motivator for children taking lessons in an instrument at a young age. Children often lose interest the first time that they struggle, which is usually in the first lesson or two. However, it is good that the parents help push the child through because they are learning lifelong skills by sticking with something through tough times.

Ideally, this type of specialty retailing is best suited to a retail storefront. However, for the financially challenged entrepreneur, the business could begin on a part-time basis from home; as a joint venture with a like-minded retailer, such as a CD shop; or online.

To supplement your income from selling musical instruments, there are complementary ways to do this by offering instrument repairs, classes, rentals, and sales of related products such as sheet music.

Reasons Why Instrumental Soothing Music Is Best For Relaxing

images20

There are many kinds and forms of soothing music. One general way though to divide compositions designed to relax is to group them according to instrumental tunes and those with vocals. Is it always a better option to listen to purely instrumental selections when you want to relax?

In a lot of cases, what is considered relaxing is based entirely on subjective preferences. This is why some folks listen to slightly upbeat pop songs and still get a general feeling of relaxation. This may also apply to you but it’s worth noting that there are reasons why instrumental tunes are better options.

One reason why tracks without vocals are ideal is because they heighten the subjective experience. Those that do have lyrics tend to control the experience based on the themes that they pursue. In other words, listeners’ feelings, emotions and thoughts are generally dictated by whatever the vocalist says.

There may be no real problem if the lyrics of songs that have the potential to fall under the category of relaxing soothing music carry appropriately calming words. In a lot of cases though, there are songs that carry traditionally slow beats that may be calming but have lyrics that may generate the opposite effect in individuals. Instead of feeling calm, an individual may end up feeling overly melodramatic or even depressed.

There are more reasons to choose instrumental sounds for relaxation. One more good reason is the natural ability of certain instruments to evoke relaxation. The piano, flute or harp for instance, when played following a slow beat piece, automatically generates smooth, calming tunes that almost mimic what nature produces. You would probably not be able to expect the same outcome from an electric guitar even if it is played to accompany slow pop tunes.

The natural calming effects produced by the right instruments also give listeners the chance to visualize better. Listening to instrumental tunes in a cool, quiet environment can help you imagine appropriately calming situations or environments. While listening to gentle piano pieces for example, you can envision yourself lounging under a tree, sitting beside a bubbling brook or being in whatever place you find comforting. Compositions that have lyrics obviously do not give listeners the same opportunity because of how words can limit the imagination.

In modern soothing music, there is no doubt that words can play important roles. In a lot of cases though, you would always prefer to have a completely subjective experience when you want to relax. If you want your imagination to work to your advantage during your chill out moments, you had best settle for instrumental compositions.
