Drums are mainly an accompanying instrument, which means that they can be played along-side nearly any other instrument in the world. They hold the tempo and rhythm of a song, which is one of the most fundamental aspects of music.

While the only F-clef we use today for lower ranges is the bass clef, other F-clefs used to be used. The Baritone clef was also centered on the middle line of the staff, while the sub-bass clef was centered on the top line.

The first CD player was invented more than 30 years ago on October 1, 1982, by Sony in Japan, with a release in the United States six months later. At $1,000, it was considered relatively expensive, and qualities were limited. It soon won over the masses.

Ancient trumpets, which were played at religious ceremonies, magical rites, and burials, bear little resemblance to the trumpets of today. They were straight instruments with no mouthpiece or flaring bell. Used more like megaphones, ancient trumpets were used to distort the human voice enough to dispel evil spirits.

Drumsticks are usually made out of different types of wood, such as oak, maple, and hickory. However, some drumstick manufacturers use other materials, such as aluminum or rubber to create their own unique sounds.

Since the bass flute is so large, it would be impossible to reach all the keys if it were stretched out to its full length. This is why the head joint is shaped into a “J,” so that both the mouthpiece and keys are within the player’s reach.

You love music, and music is everywhere: Ever wondered what makes that pure, bell-like tone you hear when you rub your wet finger around the rim of a glass? Your finger sets off a natural frequency vibration which occurs several hundred times a second creating a musical note.

Did you know that musicians who composed their own music once had to draw their own staff lines onto blank pieces of paper? Fortunately, this time consuming and labor intensive necessity was no longer needed when staff paper became widely available after printers were invented.

When you are not playing, cleaning or providing general maintenance to your brass instrument, we recommend storing it in its case. This will help to prevent damage, surface scratches and aid in preventing the instrument from tarnishing.

Schubert’s “Die Forelle” is written in 6 versions. This is because friends would ask for a copy and he would rewrite the piece to the best of his ability.

Improvisation is very important when it comes to drumming. Many professional drummers can create beats and fill out of thin air when playing live shows. The best way for drummers to get better at improvisation is by practicing different techniques, fills, and beats.

The fall of Rome actually dealt a devastating blow to sheet music, as the art of writing music all but disappeared. However, it enjoyed a revival as the Catholic Church sought to record its Gregorian chants on paper.

If you have had a record collection for any length of time, you may have played certain albums so much their grooves have worn down. If the fidelity of the sound is not as you want, come in and pick up a replacement album.

For a child who is mathematically inclined, music may be a perfect fit. It plays to their strengths and can help them develop their creative side, and it may help a child who is also shy develop more confidence.

Music can make you dance, sleep, and dream. It can make you jump for joy, or sit down and cry. It’s the best medicine for a broken heart and can inspire life-changing action. Make sure you have music in your life.

Did you know that playing a musical instrument can actually enhance specific areas of the brain? Brain scans on musicians have shown that specific areas of their brain which control motor skill, memory and audio information are actually much more active compared to those that do not play.

The first confirmed use of the modern drum kit came from the Vaudville era. The kit was used out of necessity, as small theaters required a reduction in percussionists. While orchestra settings would allow multiple percussionists, the drum kit allowed one member to replace five or six others.
