Every photo tells a story. It talks about a moment, a situation, its emotions, a memory capturing a story from the expression of a face, a look, or a flirtatious pose. Whatever you want, seems to be one of the most exciting challenges in photography.
That is perhaps why portrait photography is one of the favorite themes according to reviews on NorskeAnmeldelser.
A good portrait can be achieved in different ways, and in this article, we will give you some keys you should keep in mind. Let’s see them!
1. Change Angle and Alter Perspective
The usual thing when we do portrait photography is to take the shot at eye level or a little lower, but it does not … Read the rest
Learning an instrument and playing in a band enhances diverse methods of thinking and cognizance. This is a severely underrated benefit that children gain when they are introduced to music at any time during their childhood. Yet, this is not the only overlooked benefit that children gain from music. In this article, we will take a look at the skills and traits developed by music education.
Music lessons Singapore programs are packed with formative comments and evaluation, where educators constantly evaluate and offer comments during the learning procedure. The consistent specialist exhibition, feedback, and dialogue establish a powerful learning relationship that ensures self-efficacy and drives to learn.
Music develops cognitive capabilities
Music classes supply a means for students to come … Read the rest
For Midwestern folks like me no part of the local newscast is as anticipated as the weather forecast, but it usually ends up being the most unsatisfying segment as well. Even though they always greet us with smiling faces, seldom do the meteorologists offer us mild temperatures with clear skies.
Instead of the smiling weather experts, the forecast would be more palatable if the news stations chose music to represent the weather conditions. There are a multitude of songs that represent the different types of climates, such as “Mr. Blue Sky” by the Electric Light Orchestra for the beautiful days that are so rare in the Midwest.
Here are ten other popular songs that could be used to represent the … Read the rest
Fine violin bows (as well as fine cello bows and viola bows) are a bit of a menagerie. There’s the frog of course, which isn’t at all derived from real amphibians, plus horsehair, the most important part. Tucked inside frog mechanism is the abalone slide, made from a real mollusk.
This last piece, the thin rectangle of iridescent purple and turquoise, is almost too pretty to hide inside the frog. It is in fact the same material known as Mother of Pearl used in jewelry. But the hardness of abalone is part of why it’s used in the vise-like mechanism in stringed instrument bows – along with several other precision parts – to hold the horsehair in place.
That said … Read the rest
“Outfit” is another word for “set,” as in how the three primary components (violin, bow, and case) are sold in a package. Sometimes it’s a better buy.
The beginning violin student and even someone with a few years of study might choose to purchase what is called a “violin outfit”. This is in contrast to separately purchasing the violin, bow, and the case.
Why would a student (and the funding source, typically parents) go one route over the other? It is basically a matter of having strong preferences for characteristics of each component, versus not knowing why they would prefer one bow, one violin, or one case over another. Some of that has to do with simply how much tolerance … Read the rest
If you are a music artist, you may have had this question in mind at some point in time – How do I buy hip hop beats for sale online? With the internet becoming more and more popular, it’s easy to see that online music producers and online music artists are taking over the music industry. In the past, if you were a music artist the only way to get hip hop beats would be to either produce hip hop beats yourself, know someone who makes hip hop beats, or be signed to a label. But now with the evolution of the internet, this is no longer the case, in fact all you have to do now is type … Read the rest
Once again my mental discography has been ignited by the hosts of Sound Advice, the popular music discussion show on National Public Radio. On a recent their topic was what they called I Want You Back songs, and each host presented his six favorites.
Among the half dozen of Jim DeRogatis was “If I Can’t Have You” by Yvonne Elliman, her first single after a successful tenure as the backing vocalist for Eric Clapton. Its lyrics lay bare the pleading to get her old!over back, Boeing that no one else could ever replace him.
Co-just Greg Kot offered a different six pack, highlighted by “Working My Way Back To You” by the Spinners. The legendary pop group songs about a … Read the rest
It is generally acknowledged that musical activity can have beneficial results for seniors. These benefits come in different forms for different people depending on their circumstances.
“Music Therapy” is one well established method of helping people with physical and cognitive disabilities caused by conditions such as dementia. “MT” as it is referred to, often involves relatively passive activities like listening to music under controlled conditions. But it can also involve singing, drumming or tapping, and playing other simple instruments like the harmonica.
Research has shown that the soothing effect of music leads to better social interaction and often helps improve communication skills where they have been impaired by such things as stroke, or been the result of some other injury … Read the rest
The most important skill you need to practice for recording guitar is rhythm guitar playing. Many guitar players neglect this skill and end up wasting valuable recording time in the studio (costing them tons of money in the process).

To record rhythm guitar perfectly and make your recordings sound great, you must master several key skills. Here is a list of some of the skills you must train:
Making The Notes Of All Chords Be Perfectly Stable
Improving this skill requires training yourself to consistently pick every note of a chord with the same amount of force. This is especially important while recording double … Read the rest
Yellow Submarine, the quirky animated film involving The Beatles, is returning to theaters this season. The special screening has been scheduled to honor the fiftieth anniversary of its release, not long after the band had created its iconic Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
Another psychedelic film from a popular musical quartet, which like Yellow Submarine was accompanied by an album of the same title, came out in 1967. With a simple one word title, Head portrayed the Monkees in a much different light than fans of their hit television show had seen.
Neither the film nor the record received much critical acclaim, but the Monkees did that same year release an album that has long been considered … Read the rest
