The Benefits of Music With Children and Family Relationships

From within the womb music can begin to advance our intelligence and shape our future. The comfort you feel in your prenatal state associates with the sounds outside the belly, triggering a state of calm when you hear the same sounds in the future outside world. As a toddler, I remember when my dad used to sing me to sleep, little did I know it would help mold the person I am today. Music can play a crucial roll in developing the mental, physical and emotional growth of a human being. It can also be used as a tool to strengthen family relationships and bridge generation gaps.

Music inspires creativity by stimulating the imagination of children at an early age. As a child, when we hear a song that touches on things familiar and symbolic to everyday life such as a favorite color, animal, or food, we begin to visualize and stretch our imagination. This exercise sets a tone for creativity later in life. It also provides a tool for expression that perpetuates our creative abilities.

Majestic Combination Of Poetry, Fusion Music, And Legendary Voices

There was a time when it was believed that classical music has no place in Bollywood movies made for the mass audience. People believed that the masses would not appreciate the technicalities involved in classical music when watching movies on the big screen. However, performers like Mohammad Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Jagjit Singh, Mehdi Hassan, and Pankaj Udhas have successfully popularized Hindi Ghazals amongst the masses through their performances in Hindi movies.

Traditionally, Hindi Ghazals placed a lot of emphasis on the voice of the performer. Artists like Jagjit Singh moved away from the traditional approach and started emphasizing on the words, lyrics and the music accompanying the song. Today, Ghazals continue to be very popular amongst the masses. The Ghazal song in Sarfarosh was widely appreciated and was considered the best song in the super great movie.

Appreciation of such traditional songs has always been the hallmark of an intelligent and knowledgeable music connoisseur. The growth of the Indian pop industry in the late 80s and early 90s ensured greater visibility for Ghazal artists. Pankaj Udhas, Mehdi Hassan, Jagjit Singht, Hariharan, and others have released albums consisting only of Ghazal songs. These songs have become very popular and such albums …

How to Write a Song

We love to hear songs. It is said that listening to the music can relieve tension, reduce stress and helps to rejuvenate. Listening to the mild songs during night can bring sound sleep. Well, good songs are memorized easily. If a song has a good music that our ears love to listen then we keep on singing it very often.

Best Ways to Get Custom Songs For a Video Or Film Project

If you’re a filmmaker or work with video, you know what an important role music plays in movies for capturing the audience’s attention. You also know that fitting the right song with the right scene can be a daunting task. This task, however, has become easier in recent years as music licensing becomes more available from online sources.

With the massive increase of royalty free music websites, filmmakers and others seeking background music for their movies need only do a quick search on the web to start browsing songs. Music licensing companies have large databases of music that the filmmaker can sort through based on what he or she believes would best fit their movie. One problem with this method though is the sheer amount of songs to sort through. The amount of available music online could give a headache to even the best music supervisor.

Another option could be licensing music heard on the radio or popular hits from the past. One must be careful as licensing popular or previously created music can create economic or legal barriers that stem from the copyright holders. These copyright holders can be a record label, music publisher, or the songwriter themselves. Most …
