• Music for the Soul

    If music be the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it; that surfeiting. The appetite may sicken, and so die..... "One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain" Bob Marley

  • Singing

    “Everybody has a voice and everybody can sing. It’s a brilliant way of just giving yourself some time. Simply tune out the rest of the world and enjoy the physical sensation of breathing in and creating a note with your body.” – Oliver Rundell, Chorus Master, Opera North

  • Practice

    “Music is a proud, temperamental mistress. Give her the time and attention she deserves, and she is yours. Slight her and there will come a day when you call and she will not answer. So I began sleeping less to give her the time she needed.”

  music  is  a   journey

In some ways, music is a lot like literature. It can be pleasing, enlightening, even life-changing. A great song, like a great book, affects the listener in unanticipated ways and resonates long after the music has ceased. And, if done well, both music and literature have a rhythm and tone unique to their authors; you wouldn't confuse a passage from a Charles Dickens novel with one from a Harry Potter book, nor would you mistake a verse from "A Hard Day's Night" or one from a Lady Gaga song.
But how do you describe your favorite song? How do you put its melody into words or explain the beauty of its chords? How do you begin to describe the emotions that it provokes in you? As the maxim goes, "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture." In other words, despite the similarities between literature and music, conveying sound through notes and text is a challenge, even for the most talented of writers and performers.
