Its Not Just A Hobby

For many of us, music isn't just background noise – it's a passion, a refuge, a language with its own grammar and flow. We embrace the joy of playing, yet often downplay the skills we've honed, the challenges we've overcome, the worlds we've built note by note. Today, let's peel back the label and see what truly lies beneath. read more

A History of Musical Decision Making: Mastering Chaos - "The Musicians Way"

Decision-making can be musical. I can see several questions emerging in your mind as you read this. The purpose of this blog is to outline times in history when music came into decision making. It also examines how even decisions about engine maintenance come down to a matter of tone and feel. Finally I describe how, in the middle of a corporate negotiation over 'who gets paid what', musical processes materialised which helped inform the decision. read more

The Outrageous History Behind The Original Sound Bath

This is the outrageous history behind the original sound bath - which was created by Fabien Maman, as a Tama-Do Sound Harmonization®, back in the 70s.

Your Healing Voice - The benefits of singing for health and wellbeing - Lyz Cooper

The benefits of singing have long been documented – we know it feels good to sing, but what actually happens to our bodies when we sing? In this paper, we will discover how and why singing can be so beneficial to our overall health and well-being. read more

The Practice of Trust

The Buddha once famously and very wisely said: “People are not addicted to drugs or alcohol; they are addicted to escaping reality.” This cannot be more true of the world that we live in. Whether we accept it or even realize it, or not, all of us are, in one way or another, addicted to something or someone. We all like to believe that there is something, a particular essence in that thing, that gets us addicted to it. We could not be more wrong. read more

THE FOUR MODES of SOUND VIBRATION

Shiksha or the science of sound explains how vibratory processes create our holographic universe, and this is experienced and made known to us through nada yoga, the yoga of sound. For thousands of years the study of sound and the ever moving processes of vibration that create, sustain and unfold the universe in all its aspects and expressions has been a major part of all Vedic schools of learning. read more

I am continually asking myself why I do what I do,

I am continually asking myself why I do what I do, why in other words I am devoting time and energy to music amid all the other possible meaningful ways of engaging with life. If I were to ask myself what gives me most hope about life, what makes life most worth living, my answer would include sound and music. I believe music and sound to be among the most potent technologies we have at our disposal to navigate what we are both individually and collectively struggling with on the planet. read more

The Role Sound Healing Plays In Our Health and Wellbeing

Everything in the multi-verse has its own sound with a specific vibration and frequency. We are no different. With the astrological shifts over the last couple of years transitioning us nearer to the age of Aquarius, there has become an increased awareness of our energy body and a desire to discover how to take better care of ourselves with a more holistic approach, honouring the fact we are spiritual beings having a human experience and not human beings becoming spiritual. read more

Sound: The Primal Force

We are living in challenging times with the last few years being full of distress, grief and chaos for many. What can we do for ourselves and our own mental health? In my experience sound and voice has been an essential as well as immense gift and tool for my own well being. To be able to sing oneself from fear into a place of deep peace very simply by chanting a mantra for 10 mins, or vocalising the deepest longing or singing out a song of ecstatic joy can be the best medicine. read more

The Harmony Of Verticality

Our body is made of curves. Their harmonious sequence maintains our verticality and supports our drive towards self back stretching. If we observe these curves, we can see how dynamic our structure is. In other words, our bodies are incredibly vibrant, like the string of a musical instrument. read more

SACRED GEOMETRY

Way back in the 1970s I was a fine art student at Reading University and later at the Slade. I was fortunate indeed to have a number of great tutors, but the one outstanding influence on me was Keith Critchlow. His lectures on sacred geometry were a marvel and a great source of inspiration to several of my contemporaries as well as myself. read more

Brexit: The Hidden Cost To Soundworkers

At the end of 2020 a deal was done with the EU; a very poor, light-weight deal. Whether you are a Leaver or Remainer you will probably be thinking that this outcome was not what I was expecting when the result of the referendum was announced in 2016. read more

Singing No More Risky for COVID Than Talking, New Study Says

The performing arts has been badly affected during the coronavirus pandemic with live musical performances canceled for many months because singing was identified as a potential "higher risk" activity, but new research shows that singing does not produce more respiratory particles than when speakingat a similar volume. read more

Don’t be afraid to Sing! It is your own vibrational healing.

As a singing teacher, I understand that there are many different reasons why people want to sing. They want to find out if they have a voice. Can they sing in tune? Will it give them more self-confidence? Can it improve their asthma? Can it help them give up smoking? They just want to sing in the bathroom. read more

One Step Back. Two Steps Ahead

As a freelance percussionist my life has been filled with travel and many types ofwonderful performance opportunities. From chamber music to experiments to improvisation,theatre, dance and solo works, I have had the great privilege of working with communities ofperformers and composers in very inspired social settings. One would say that going ‘online’ is astep backwards in comparison with the experience of live music and they would be right.Many percussionists get into the electronic side of th read more
