    Music is a great form of communication; it facilitates religious ceremonies, and celebrates victorious battles. Jubal was the inventor of Hebrew musical instruments. The whole Hebrew history and literature are proving that the Hebrews are really committed to cultivate music. We all remember that after the passage of the Red Sea, Moses and his people sang their song of happiness and freedom.

    The time of David and Solomon is the golden age of Hebrew music; it is systematically cultivated and it is the main part of training in schools. Hebrew musical instruments are also used in their private life. Among the Hebrew musical instruments, an important place is given to stringed instruments, such as the kinnor – a kind or farp, the nebel a lyre, the sabbeka- a lute. Among the wind instruments, we mention the ugab a syrinx, the qeren a horn, the shophar a trumpet, the hafsoserah a trumpet, the halil a flute, the sumponyah a bagpipe. The Hebrew musical instruments from the percussion category are the toph a drum, the paamon the bells, the tseltselim cymbals, the mennan’im cornets, the shalishim triangles.

    Old Hebrew musical instruments
    The bells were very important Hebrew musical instruments; they were attached to the hem of the high priest’s ephod. The cornet is named shophar in Hebrew because of its brightness and its clear sound. Cymbals are also very popular Hebrew musical instruments; two pieces of brass, one for each hand, are clashed together to produce a really loud sound. The dulcimer is a Hebrew musical instrument; it is a kind of lute. The flute is composed of a number of pipes; it is common also among other people from Asia.

    The harp (kinnor in Hebrew) is the national musical instrument of the Hebrews; the harp was invented by Jubal and is used as accompaniment to Hebrew songs such as praise to God. The horn is not only a Hebrew musical instrument; it is also used metaphorically for strength and honor, as emblems or power. The organ is a wind Hebrew musical instrument, similar to the Pan’s pipe.

    The psaltery is another Hebrew musical instrument, a king of lyre, with twelve strings. The tabret is a one-sided drum, a kind of tambourine; the timbrel is also a small drum or a tambourine. Trumpets are a large variety of forms, and are made in different materials. Silver trumpets are specific Hebrew musical instruments, and are used by the highest priests to announce a war or a festival.

  • Website Design For Music Composers

    The ever-changing world of the internet, coupled with expanding technology and falling equipment costs, have made it possible for music composers to operate on their own, both in the production and marketing of their music. However, in order to take advantage of this new digital age, a musician must have a well constructed website to promote their work.

    Website design is a crucial element for the freelance composer who wants to pick up work and market their music on the internet. It is the first and only thing that prospective clients and fans will see when they search for you or happen across you on the web. With this in mind, you need to make a good impression.

    For a music composer, the most important aspect of a website is to have samples of your work. You need to have audio or video files that feature your music as one of the first things people get to. They should be clearly labeled and easy to find and operate.

    Film composers will want to have video samples from films they have scored as well as some audio tracks. A non-film music composer may not have video samples, but it is still a good idea to have pictures that correspond to the audio tracks. Having some sort of visual elements on your site will make it seem more professional and appealing to the eye.

    Besides music samples, a composers website should contain information about their musical education or experience, philosophy on music, past composing work, and other personal information. People should be able to get a good feel for you and the music you produce from what they read on your site.

    Since its important to get traffic in the internet world, you will want your site to be optimized for search engines, meaning certain key words should be emphasized in the title and content of your site. Your name should obviously be featured prominently. You want someone to be able to type your name into Google and have your site come up as the first result.

    The last essential part of your site is a good way for people to contact you. Try to find some kind of contact form plugin that you can install in one of your pages. The method of simply writing your email address somewhere or putting in some mail-to code is more time consuming for the people emailing you and is less impressive to potential clients.

    For the modern music composer, having a presence on the internet is an important part of getting your music heard. You will not be taken as seriously without a nice site and will be preventing yourself from getting plugged into new marketing streams and networks that have risen with the growing capabilities of the web.

Being able to play a musical instrument can impact your life in many ways and benefit you on many levels, whether it be physically, mentally or emotionally.

    It has been scientifically proven that learning a musical instrument affects the brain in a much positive way. This is especially true for children. Indeed, it has been shown that young kids that listen regularly to music or practice a musical instrument do better in school than their fellow pupils. Adults can keep their minds sharp by playing an instrument.

    Learning a musical instrument in general is not easy. Because it is not easy, the person has to stick to it if he or she wants to progress. This has the advantage of developing and teaching discipline to the music student.
    It has also been proven that playing a musical instrument does wonder to reduce stress levels. Of course, a soft sounding instrument might be better to that effect also playing drums is also very liberating and a great work out that will let you feel content after a good session. You can thus not only soothe your mind but your body as well.

True, it will be hard in the beginning and maybe not all that fun, but I urge you to stick with it, you will soon have fun. Youll be able to play for your family and friends, at parties, etc.

    It is important that you chose the right instrument for you if you want to benefit from all these advantages. Chose the wrong one and it could be more of an headache than anything.

    Could you imagine having a music studio software program that has the same, if not better, creation and recording options that a professional recording studio would have but for a price of uder $30 bucks?

    If your thinking that finding such a beat maker is crazy and unrealistic, since the majority of music creator software is priced for hundreds of dollars, you would be mistaken.

    Of course you have many options one of which is to buy top of the line software, but I would not recommend it if you are a beginner or new to beat making software. These programs will run hundreds of dollars and require extensive knowledge of music production to make any beats at all.

    For starters Any good quality music studio software program will have a Key editor that produces Instruments, qualiy banks, special effects, stabs and more.

    If you are searching for a beat maker and come accross one that does not have this kind of key editor, simply scratch it off your list.

    When I first started to remix music, 10 years ago, I did not have the dollars to drop on programs such as fruity Loops or sound forge.

    I wanted a music studio software program that had top notch pre recorded beats that I could add to or use as an overlay, already pre-loaded. I wanted something affordable but not cheap.

    My Dj beats software that I have is good for mixing but not as savvy on creating music beats. Since

    my dream list was getting longer and harder to find, I would just buy music beats until a friend of mine told me about a new music studio software that was released. It really is something you need to see for yourself to believe.

    Let’s just say that I have been finally making those killer beats I kept hearing in my head but was unable to create them until now.

    Consider your search over so that you too can start making the music beats you have always wanted to create. Warning…this music studio software program is addicting.

  • Country Singer Mary Mcbride Finds Her Way Home

    Country/R&B singer Mary McBride might be best described with a simple equation. Take a soulful voice finely suited to sing every patron of a New York dive bar into a musical coma. Add in the legacy of Merle Haggard and Janis Joplin. Factor in a taste for musical theater. Subtract the striving for corporate success tracksand youll get Mary McBride.

    A leading voice in the recent resurgence of Americana-styled country and blues, McBride has an extended family of forefathers, fans and soon-to-be-fans ready to welcome her on to the national media stage. Originally from Louisiana, McBride moved herself and an ingrained love of traditional Southern sounds to New York City to pursue a musical career that began with short sets in an Irish Pub on Sunday afternoons.

    Finding her home in country roots helped lead McBride to the theme behind her new album The Way Home. The tracks are embroidered with country, R&B, soul and rock influences, making McBride a living testament to the melting pot of musical culture in New York City, and the whole country. R&B is closely aligned with a country sound, she asserts. But I really wanted the record to be a mix and not a straight country or a straight soul record. Departing from earlier writing patterns where entire albums were laid out in two-week frenzies, McBride says The Way Home is a more thoughtful record with a range of sounds and a specific theme of wanting to feel included and wanting to feel at home.

    It is this theme that McBrides current tour, The Home Tour, is built on. We are playing in rural communities, places that support affordable housing. We have a stop at a housing complex called the Chesca Apartments on the edge of Navajo nation. Later, we are playing in a farm workers community, and in Detroit, we are playing for Freedom Housea place for immigrants who seek asylum, she explains. And thats whats so exciting about this tour: every date will be completely different.

    ARE YOU A COUNTRY FAN? Did you watch the CMT Awards last night? Who deserved the wins and who got robbed? Some of our faves: Carrie Underwood’s two awards (you go, girl!) and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” steal for Group Video of the Year. And shockerTaylor went home empty-handed. Let us know who YOU would’ve picked!

    Instrumental Music in Public Worship: History Surrounding the Westminster Assembly

    FROM: “INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC IN THE PUBLIC WORSHIP OF THE CHURCH”

    By John L. Girardeau (Still Waters Revival Books, [1888] 2000), pp. 132, 133.

    Before the Westminster Assembly of Divines undertook the office of preparing a Directory of Worship, the Parliament had authoritatively adopted measures looking to the removal of organs, along with other remains of Popery, from the churches of England. On the 20th of May, 1644, the commissioners from Scotland wrote to the General Assembly of their church and made the following statement among others: “We cannot but admire the good hand of God in the great things done here already, particularly that the covenant, the foundation of the whole work, is taken, Prelacy and the whole train thereof extirpated, the service-book in many places forsaken, plain and powerful preaching set up, many colleges in Cambridge provided with such ministers as are most zealous of the best reformation, altars removed, the communion in some places given at the table with sitting, THE GREAT ORGANS AT PAUL’S AND PETER’S IN WESTMINSTER TAKEN DOWN (emphasis added), images and many other monuments of idolatry defaced and abolished, the Chapel Royal at Whitehall purged and reformed; and all by authority, in a quiet manner, at noon-day, without tumult.”1 So thorough was the work of removing organs that the “Encyclopaedia Britannica” says that “at the Revolution most of the organs in England had been destroyed.”2

    When, therefore, the Assembly addressed itself to the task of framing a Directory for Worship, it found itself confronted by a condition of the churches of Great Britain in which the singing of psalms without instrumental accompaniment almost universally prevailed. In prescribing, consequently, the singing of psalms without making any allusion to the restoration of instrumental music, it must, in all fairness, be construed to specify the simple singing of praise as a part of public worship. The question, moreover, is settled by the consideration that had any debate occurred as to the propriety of allowing the use of instrumental music, the Scottish commissioners would have vehemently and uncompromisingly opposed that measure. But Lightfoot, who was a member of the Assembly, in his “Journal of its Proceedings”3 tells us: “This morning we fell upon the Directory for singing of psalms; and, in a short time, we finished it.” He says that the only point upon which the Scottish commissioners had some discussion was the reading of the Psalms line by line.
