Passion Is The Number One Element of Singing
It is true that anyone can sing if there heart is completely in it. This means, you do not have to be the world’s greatest singer in order to see. Moreover, with enough passion and discipline, you can train yourself to be a great singer over time. This is an important fact to remember. A lot of people are discouraged to sing because the most popular singers have immaculate voices. However, singing takes time and improvement is a gradual process. Nevertheless, all singers start out with little talent and a lot of soul.
Taking Your Voice To The Next Level
If you have demonstrated that you want to be a singer, then you should consider taking vocal lessons. This will help you improve your voice immensely. Having the ability to control your passion and your strengths is a wonderful quality for every singer to have. In addition, you will have more control, precision and accuracy when you sing. This is what all singers do to get to the next level. You start with passion and end up with a lot of control.

http://www.appletreerecords.net/2012/07/22/from-wind-came-sound-and-music-came-beauty/#commentsSun, 22 Jul 2012 00:00:00 +0000adminhttp://www.appletreerecords.net/?p=15For many of us who were alive in the 1980s and 1990s, grunge music still holds a place in our heart. However, one of the precursors to grunge music was the Riot Grrrl movement. More than just girl bands that played their instruments and wrote their own music, Riot Grrrl bands led the way for young women to fight against oppression. Feminism was the underlying message, and there were many all-girl bands trying for stardom.
Today, one band who sprung up in the very late ’80s and is still performing occasionally is the group named Hole. The notorious front woman, Courtney Love, now 47 years old, leads this band. Even though she replaced her female band with male musicians, she still writes the same sort of music. Hole’s most well-received album is Live Through This, which many listeners believe Courtney had help writing, by her then-husband, Kurt Cobain. Sadly, the death of Kurt Cobain happened only two weeks before the albumâ€™s release.
During the early 1990s, Kurt Cobain was also starting a new genre of music in the Pacific Northwest, known as grunge. His band’s name was Nirvana. However, their rise to stardom ended upon his passing. Other bands followed in the grunge music style, but it was never quite the same without Cobain and his band. Today, fans of Kurt Cobain celebrate the major events of his life on their anniversaries each year.

While it’s true that music soothes the savage breast, the breast has to be receptive to the sound waves trying to reach it. It’s easier to deal with bad news, bills, or stress when Sesame Street is playing on the TV, or the soothing strains of the Bee Gees calm the mind. Conversely, the sad ballads of country music can make even the sad weep for the song’s sufferer, thereby removing his own problems from the mix. See how the sound waves make it better?
Working out or doing the housework with the children helping can best be accompanied by snappy songs that make everyone whistle or snap fingers. Time passes quickly when the mind is engaged by the story or the feet tap to the beat. It’s about the mind being open to wavelengths and being receptive to the sound waves, matching moods to music.

http://www.appletreerecords.net/2012/06/11/music-silence-is-broken-through-the-organized-noise/#commentsMon, 11 Jun 2012 00:00:00 +0000adminhttp://www.appletreerecords.net/?p=12There is a silence that is broken through the organized noise of music. This appears to be an outlet for many people that would otherwise have little of nothing to say.
Prince appears to be this type of artist. Michael Jackson was this type of artist. They were both legends that rarely had anything to say in the early stages of their careers. It was all about their music.
There are still stars that are not very vocal about their performances. Madonna, at times, can have this sort of enigma type of vibe about her music. She is a star that can be silent on how the music is made, but she breaks this silence through her music.
Janet Jackson is a major star in the music personality that has acted in movies and sold millions of records. Somehow she is still shy and very silence a lot of times. This has become something that makes her all the more charming for fans.
For stars like this their music is their refuge. They don’t think go into many forms of expression outside of their music careers. This, coincidentally, has made fans create their every word during an rare interview moment.

Where the trumpet player use to be there now stands a violinist. From Itzhak Perlman to Joshua Bell the violin has earned it’s place as one of the smoothest, interesting , and recognizable sounds in music. The violin has crossed into all genres of music in the last few decades including rhythm and blues and rap music.
It was Miri Ben-Ari who took the violin into a new arenas, having played at Carnegie Hall with Wyclef Jean, on 106 & park, and with Jay-Z at a summer jam concert in New York. She has been named the ” Hip Hop Violinist”.
Since then, she has gone on to win a Grammy for her role in Jesus Walks by Kanye West. Her release of the Symphony of Brotherhood in which she had an instrumental track to the Martin Luther King speech, “I Have A Dream”, became the first instrumental song to ever reach the billboard R& B hip hop charts at number 2. The violin is an instrument that is no longer just for the symphony, the choir, or stage plays. The beautiful sounds it evokes will pierce our ears with splendor for generations to come.

http://www.appletreerecords.net/2012/05/25/clarinet-understanding-breathing-windpipes-reeds-and-buttons/#commentsFri, 25 May 2012 00:00:00 +0000adminhttp://www.appletreerecords.net/?p=10The clarinet has been a favorite of beginning musical students since the turn of the 18th century. There are several components to the clarinet starting with the mouthpiece and ligerture, followed by the upper and lower joint ending with the bell. The mouthpiece is held between the upper and lower lip with no pressure put on the bottom lip. The reed must be allowed to vibrate in the mouth. The keys and fingerholes have pads on them to close the holes properly and produce the correct note.
It takes alot of concentration to play an instrument such as the clarinet and one of the most important skills are learning how to breath. You no longer breath through your nose like we are used to. You must learn to breath through your mouth and blow only as hard as necessary to create the particular sound you want to hear. Playing an instrument requires deep breaths of air from the diaphragm and holding it as long as possible.
From learning to make a sound, to learning to breath correctly may seem like a difficult thing to master, but once you do you can make beautiful music; your heart will fill with pride.

http://www.appletreerecords.net/2012/05/24/from-the-normal-and-to-the-extravagant/#commentsThu, 24 May 2012 00:00:00 +0000adminhttp://www.appletreerecords.net/?p=9There is normal music and musicians and then there is the extravagant. Sometimes the two are not married together, other times they go hand in hand. The band queen is very extravagant. They wear lavish clothes and Freddie Mercury actually comes from European royalty. Their music reflects their persona as well. The Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the most intricate rock songs around. The harmonies and operatic arrangement are almost impossible to duplicate. Compare this to the rather simplistic look of The Doors, yet their compositions are alive with intricate harmonies and melodies. So much so that people actually make it a lifetime pursuit to study their music.
An example of a successful yet simplistic band is Green Day. The music they write is in simple chording structures and the leads arenâ€™t all that hard, but the effect that their music has on people is legendary. The personalities of the band members make their fans feel like they are all good friends. They are approachable and a little self depreciating. In one of their album photos they chose un-retouched pictures because they wanted their fans to know they were just like everybody else. These kinds of bands are like the other side of the coin of famous people.

http://www.appletreerecords.net/2012/05/22/guitars-finger-picking-for-the-soul/#commentsTue, 22 May 2012 00:00:00 +0000adminhttp://www.appletreerecords.net/?p=8If you need a release of tension and love music you can enjoy a little finger picking for the soul. Playing a guitar is one of those things that many people play often and a few people play very well. The great thing is that with just a few lessons, and some old favorite songs, you can enjoy making music on your own. Guitar picking uses several methods from a blues style that is all your own, to a formal classical style that is really impressive. The best picking styles are the ones that fall into your fingers naturally.The whole story can be found at http://www.gearslutz.com/board/so-much-gear-so-little-time/727636-small-diaphragm-condensor-finger-picked-guitar.html
A 3-finger Travis strum is used by some of the big names in music and is a fun way to learn picking. This is done with regular chording and no pick. If youâ€™re playing with a pick, a great way to start is by using alternate picking. This gets you used to playing with the same versatility of the experts.
Of course you still have to practice until these styles are smooth, and you will never get it to a point where you youâ€™ve learned all you need to know. These styles will get you playing, and most importantly enjoying the music you are making.
