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.

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.

Zoom 5.2.2 - Better Sound Quality

Musicians who have been using Zoom and other videoconferencing platforms for sessions, rehearsals, and performances since the coronavirus pandemic began earlier this year have struggled against an audio system that is optimised for spoken word. The new mode improves audio quality in ways that make the platform work much better for musicians.
In a practical sense, this will mean that if you&rsquore discussing a project with collaborators or in a remote recording session, routing audio from your scoring or audio application into Zoom listeners on the other end will hear the difference between softs and louds, and the subtleties of articulation and orchestration will be rendered more faithfully. Teachers will be able to more easily talk alongside playing or audio playback from a student without Zoom squashing either the talking or the music. Even something as simple as playing back recorded music examples without resorting to an external service will be greatly improved using the new aud

Sounds of Nature

Through interacting with the sounds of nature, we can commune with the universe. This feeling drew me to the realm of sound healing. Years ago, moving slowly through a city park each evening, the amalgamation of sound frequencies offered by the wind blowing through the leaves of the many trees seemed to bring my body into a relaxed and vital state, while carrying my mind to a space of oneness.
