Learning Flute

No comments:
Learning how to play a musical instrument gives back something to soothe one's inner self. Maybe it's not the learning but the playing when you already know how to, but how are you going to reach that status if you do not start to learn at all? There are numerous musical instruments to choose from. While the most common is the guitar, others are equally satisfying as long as you enjoy playing any of them.

The flute is one of the instruments that can be played alone or with a backup orchestra, if you wish. The sound of a flute has a mesmerizing sound. A good composition for the flute will either lull you to sleep or wake you up in amazement. Just try to listen to Flight Of The Bumblebee rendered on flute via Youtube. With such piece so amazingly played normally on piano, having it played on flute makes it more amazing since you not just press the right holes but you also exert extra effort in blowing the right amount of air at the right time with the right mouth formation.

While most of the music pieces are classical in nature, it does not stop you to play pop tunes of your choice. Greensleeves may not be classical but it has attained its classic status some years ago. The lead tune of the flute is really hypnotic. If you want to adapt a tribal flavor, try Waka Waka! First, buy your Gemeinhardt flute so you can wake up to your dream.


Nice To Know You Wednesday

Hi there!

It's been a while since I last joined this blog in a meme. I'm in the mood since the offspring is currently asleep and I have free time.

For this week, Vix of MumWrites posted these questions:
1. Grab the book nearest you + find page 28, what does line 3 say?

I'm currently reading Shelly Laurenston's book one in the Magnus Pack book series. It's called Pack Challenge, an urban-fantasy book about shape shifters. The 3rd line on page 28 is:

"Well?" He wanted their opinion on the female.

2. What is the last film you saw?

DK and I last saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in the cinemas. And oh my God, Rooney Mara is great in that movie!

3. If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be?

I would have said Neil Gaiman because he's a brilliant author but I would be terribly intimidated to eat and would probably end up embarrassing myself. So I'm not so sure really, perhaps I'd rather not.

4. Is the glass half-empty or half-full?

Always half-full. I'm an optimistic person, a far cry from what I used to be, I know. But being a mother would do that to a person. :)

5. Where were you on Valentine’s day?

At home, reading. :D DK have work that day/night and we don't celebrate Valentine's Day, ever.

That's it for me!

Thankfully, Campus Book Rentals has come up with a great way to get students the textbooks that they need for college, all while saving more than 50% of the cover price. Campus book rentals offers a huge variety of books that are sure to please even the most obscure majors including City Folk: English Country Dance and Politics of Folk in Modern America. Finding the book that you need is super easy and you can search by keyword, author, and subject or ISBN number. Once you order, your book it will be quickly processed and promptly shipped to you at no added cost. In fact, once you are done with the textbook simply ship it back in a prepaid envelope-with free shipping both ways you never get stuck with hefty postal charges. The rental periods available are tailored to the life of a busy college student. You can choose from semester (130 days), quarter (85 days) or summer (55 day) rentals. If you need to keep the textbooks just a little bit longer to study for that all important final exams take advantage of the 15 day grace period allowed when returning your book. Save your college money for what really counts and rent your cheap college textbooks instead.
