I am presenting one of the most popular in music education here in Asia…the melodica! It is also known as the pianica, blow-organ or key-flute that is a free-reed instrument similar to the melodion and harmonica. It has a musical keyboard on top, and is played by blowing air through a mouthpiece that fits into a hole in the side of the instrument. Pressing a key opens a hole, allowing air to flow through a reed. The keyboard is usually two or three octaves long. Melodicas are small, light, and portable according to Mr. Wiki.
Just an information, the Melodica was invented by the German company Hohner in the 1950s and is a small hand-held reed organ. Popular in schools because of its size, simplicity and ease of use, the melodica has been adopted by such diverse musicians as the Reggae artist Augustus Pablo and the British Post-Punk band New Order.
Months ago, while we were in our weekly prayer meeting hubby lead the special prayer requests and asked the congregation on what would be their specific requests. There was this little girl who ask for a guitar for herself since she really wanted to own one rather than keeps on borrowing from any other. God truly answers prayer because she just got her own guitar plus a ghs strings at Guitar Center to complete her wish so that if ever the strings will be broken it can be easily replaced right away . She was so happy that she even offered her talent to God during Sunday services.
Last night was a sort of a lil reunion of my second degree cousins who came along from different cities just to bond with us even for hours. Yeah, we really had fun in the video-ke bar as they sung their favorite songs that have brought an impact of the real situations they are into. Anyway, not to boast but as usual as I got the perfect score among them, not because I have a golden voice but I guess it’s because of the mic that they have. lol Why? it seems like I am using the best recording mic ever like any other best singers use during their recordings. Well, I just felt is last night that I am one of the best singers. boooooo
…’till next time cousins!
I know that as parents all we have to do for our kids is to support them in their interests. We just found out that our eldest daughter really wanted to learn the guitar basics and so as our lil boy showed an interest for guitars. I know he is just a year older but it is so obvious on him how he loves music. Now, hubby and I decided to let our kids be occupied this summer through their guitar class. Well, we still need to look for guitars fitted for them and hoping that we could find a great deal with the classic Washburn Guitars. Pretty sure both of them will surely love their summer days!
God is telling us to share whatever possessions you have, may it be in finances, land possessions or your talent or etc we ought to give Him back a part of it! Yes and my friend is a great example for this, he offered his talents not just in the outside world but most of all to God. Before I got to know him as our church drummer, now a base/lead guitarist and I just recently found out that he’s into violin, cielo and other sting instruments too. I wonder if he got to visit the new mandolin at guitar center, maybe he can have an idea on where they could buy their stocks since he has an Uncle who owns a musical school. Hope they can find great deal on those strings! Anyway, back to him, he is indeed a multi-talented man because He let God uses his talent!
