(Fierro) Saint Hildegard of Bingen has greatly influenced music. From adding her personal touches of drama to expanding our views on what instruments mean, her music has affected musicians to this day. Without her use of leaps in notes, music would be very plain and have no character. Her
With rich historical context and sharp rhetoric, Richard Taruskin argues against a misconception about the impending demise of Classical Music. In doing so, he exemplifies three authors who argue for the ongoing crisis in Classical Music and why in their minds, Classical Music should be preserved at all cost. Taruskin then methodically dismantle their attempts to save Classical Music and instead provide his own view and its place in society. His main thesis is that classical music is undergoing a change that cannot and should not be intervened. Instead, we should allow it, observe it, and be a part of it.
Outline “I don’t need words – it’s all in the phrasing” – Louis Armstrong. In this quote, we can see that Louis speaks through his music, he has no need for words because the “phrasing” (Musical term regarding composition) speaks for him. He expresses his emotions through his music and can radically blow minds with the simple blow of a trumpet. Louis Armstrong spoke through his music and his ideas could only be developed by his music. By this quote, it is apparent for us to see that he developed and redefined music through his actions.
As he gained experience and developed his extraordinary talent, Sawchyn became a renowned guitar maker in the professional music community, which eventually put him in high international demand. At the beginning, all the work of making and repairing guitars and mandolins was done by Peter in his two-story garage and sales were carried out face-to-face at his home or online. The limitations of his location made growth difficult. He

Most people feel the power and energy when listening to metal which falls under the sensuous plane, while others would take metal as their expressive plane. The author’s tune in this essay is somewhat curious. Though it’s the suitable tune for writing; because, the author is a well known writer and composer, so everything he says is out of experience and his personal feelings towards the three planes of
I was listening to a hard rock/heavy metal radio station and suddenly the glorious American national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner” was playing. In the midst of the anthem, the sounds of car crashes, sirens and explosions could be heard. To my surprise, all these sound effects were produced by an electric guitar with the aid of guitar effects. Being a guitarist myself, I found it astounding to how the guitarist produced these sound effects and what influenced him to do so.
This article will provide insight as to who William Grant Still was and what he did to illuminate his brilliance, and why he deserves to have his name forever etched in music’s history. Very few composers back in Still’s prime have been able to concoct memorable musical works of art. Although many have tried, few etched their name in music’s timeline. Listening to one of his pieces titled “Suite for Violin and Piano, Mvt. III” it becomes audibly evident of how jazz came to be what it is now. Still cut a path to new heights when it came to jazz.

Such a professional approach to one’s career should be learnt from his life and this is why his life has been highlighted in this
My gaze penetrates the black box and wishes to create frictions of four strings, the way musicians were rendering the music during my Middle School orientation. My elective choice, a violin, upset my mom though. Italian Andrea Amati, creator of the first violin would never be imagined that roller coaster inventor Joseph Merlin introduced his invention while playing the violin. Up to middle school, an orchestra was a part of regular school time, the predicament started when I continued playing violin in the school orchestra at Troy High School.
I. The violin is an important historical instrument even used by the kings of France and prince of Hungary. This instrument evolved from Asia with the instrument fithele. We get the word fiddle from the word fithele. Although the fithele evolved from Asia, it was mostly used by Europeans in the ninth century.
