Music and Healing

  1. 1. ==== ====For Great Music Tips Check this Outhttp://aquamusic.creativesolutionsmall.com==== ====We All Have a Favorite Piece of Music that Moves Us to a Special Place in Our Hearts. AConversion About the Music We Love and How It Colors Our Lives.JUSTIN:My favorite piece of music, depends on the mood, jazz is music for all moods. My favorite jazzpiece would be - as a sax player - My Favorite Things by Coltrane, or anything by Thelonios Monk.Soft lighting, Kalhua and milk and company always suits Monk or vice versa.Driving is made for music so anything by crowded house makes a trip to anywhere (even work)worth it. How can a song sound so simplistic yet be difficult to play. what does Neil do?but my favorite piece would be from the shine soundtrack, a piece called "Nulla in mundo pax" byVivaldi, which I am listening to now.IMELDA:Every piece of music represents the expression of the composer of that music. The piece of musicthat I like the most is the piano instrumental music because it does not say in words as other kindof music. The person who listens to the instrumental music has to try to understand whatmessages the composer is trying to tell through the piece of music. It is challenging in finding themeaning. Furthermore, when I listen to the instrumental music, such as "A Maidens Prayer" by T.Badarzewska, I believe that this piece is messaging us to surrender to God. If I got chance, Idlove to play my favorite pieces.KEN:This is old stuff to those who know me, but I am a huge James Taylor Nut. And my favorite song isThe Water is Wide If MP3s are legal I will put it up on this site. But I will have to check first.Every time I hear it, I feel transformed to a different place, where everything is pensive, and peoplewalk in the streets heartbroken, but with the hope that life will be kind to them again. It leaves mewith a lump in my throat each time. There is something comforting in the song that leaves meappeased and convinced that whatever trial Im facing, someones faced it before, and someonesovercome it before.Thats what music should do. The song and the artist both inspire me endlessly. It inspires me in away I hope that I can inspire people.Listen to it if you can find it --Ken
  2. 2. JENNY:Many times, when I just close my eyes and listen to music I escape to this other level. It doessomething to appease me, as you put it feeding my soul I guess. I appreciate music very much,which to me is as much art as creating it. Music is a part of everyones life, and everyone isconnected to it in someway. For me it keeps me going when Im down, or just makes me happywhen Im happy. I have music for all occasions. All in all, Id be a very unhappy girl if music weresuddenly taken away.JILLIAN:At the end of a busy day..I love listening to music. I did dancing and singing lessons when I was a child but never learnt toplay an instrument. This year, at the ripe old age of 40, I decided to learn to read music and playthe keyboard. It is all part of having a balanced life, setting goals and taking time for me to do thethings that I enjoy.My nine year old son and I now have lessons at home each weekand are encouraging each other to practice and enjoy our music. It is something we are doingtogether and I hope that my soncontinues to enjoy music and continue playing as he grows up.I love listening and now playing music to "switch off" and relax at the end of a busy day. I haveonly had a few lessons so far and play poorly, but I am enjoying it and improving week by week.My son is doing the same and we, as a family, are enjoying playing music, listening and singingalong with our simple tunes. I consider the keyboard as my "best buy of the year 2000" so far!ED:Divinity..Music embodies life. A physical and emotional manifestation of divinity, music is an integral part ofthe loving bond that has fulfilled us and strengthened us, and brought harmony to individuals,societies and nations around the world throughout time.LINDA:Without Words..Music is an expression of what is going on inside a persons mind/heart. You dont need toconcentrate to realise its power. I think the most moving music is music performed by an artist whois playing with a passion, who feels precisely, or deeply empathizes with, the meaning andfeelings conveyed in the song.I play the piano by ear. That is, I can listen to music and once the music has made an impressionon me , I can more often than not, play back what I heard. I have always played the piano this way(since I was 4) and I wouldnt have it any other way because its made me sensitive to music - themelody, the beats, the volume and pace of songs.
  3. 3. The most wonderful thing I believe music can bring to a person is when a person can sit down withtheir instrument and play (and/or sing) whatever feelings they would otherwise keep bottled upinside them - the kind of feelings you just wouldnt be able to tell another person, the kind offeelings that only music can really bring comfort to.Many times, when I just close my eyes and listen to music I escape to this other level. It doessomething to appease me, as you put it feeding my soul I guess. I appreciate music very much,which to me is as much art as creating it. Music is a part of everyones life, and everyone isconnected to it in someway. For me it keeps me going when Im down, or just makes me happywhen Im happy. I have music for all occasions. All in all, Id be a very unhappy girl if music weresuddenly taken away.Jenny and Me:Okay.. If I dont play my guitar, Jenny, at least once a day, I get withdrawal. Im deadly serioushere. Its like you forgot something and you left a part of you somewhere... where?? where??where.. Almost like losing your keys. Music has been part of my life since I was 5, when I wasforced to learn piano. Luckily I loved it. Music is like a parent.My muse is that thing which makes me make music. Like the entity "music" herself or himself. Idont write really.. Its "it" which speaks through me. People deal with pain, and hurt in differentways. When I have finished blaming myself =)I talk to jenny and she seems to make it all seem very trivial. and I say thanks jenny.. Sometimesshe is moody. People give me strange looks when I say she talks to me. But I believe instrumentsacquire a soul when they are created. Spirits inhabit them, and they generate karma.Music feeds my soul in ways I cant even begin to explain. If you know what I mean, then you aretruly blessed too.Linda:The most important things..Music keeps me in touch with life, real life. It reminds me of the basics and the most importantthings. While we are all rushing around from day to day it is too easy to get wrapped up in gettingit all done and we forget to get in touch with ourselves and with each other often enough. Musictakes us away and provides the ultimate escape for the soul - a renewal, and its free for the taking.We all need to take advantage of what it offers on a daily basis to stay in touch with life.Have a good day - and take some time out today to be embraced by music!!Elaine:How Music Moves Me(Apart from the obvious way in wanting to get up and dance around!)Music moves me in many ways but the most memorable experience I have had was (eyes closed,sitting in an armchair) listening to a particular piece of Mahlers. At one point the string sectionbuilds up to a high note which is so exquisitely haunting and sad that tears streamed down my
  4. 4. face. Im not sure if I knew at the time, but I now know that he wrote this music about the death ofhis child and I find it amazing that this emotion could be conveyed so clearly.Most of the time music makes me glad to be alive, but I suppose this experience was morememorable because the emotion was so powerful.Created by: Ken Chan & Kent Logie of Curtins Music Community:Edited & Presented by: Michael AlanMichael Alan is a published songwriter, with album & movie credits, who has lived and touredin the US and Europe.
