Music in human being
|In the rythm on Venetian music...litening to the romance songs the gondolier was singing|
Look around and listen...
You can find a harmonious sound in everything.
What do you hear? Maybe the sweet chirping of birds or the sound of the keyboard buttons.Look out the window,maybe a dog is barking heaving a concert for its friends.
Look at the people...The whole street is crowded ,the people are rushing,but under the time pressure,some of them find a way to run out of this rutine.They laugh ,talk ,listen to music in their headphones!Sounds,the rhythm of steps and voices!What would we do without them? We would live in an infernal silence without hearing the rustle of leaves, instruments arangemenets and the most important ,we couldn't understand our friend's and family's voices.Knowing that we are healthy and we can hear everything ,we often don't pay attention to little things in our lives and we don't realize how lucky we are having all this.Therefore ,we will make a short narrative about the human voice , how it was discovered and the beginnings of music.
Human voice is a nature gift which was always used for comunication and singing.Many of us think ,that the singer's voice ,properly cultivated ,is the most beautiful and expressive of all musical instruments.It is said that the human voice depends on your body line.Having a straight posture gives you a better quality of sound.
The voice is the only musical instrument which we are born with and learn to use without doing any conscious effort.
We belive that the first forms of singing included shows interpreted by the whole community or songs which accompanied the daily work of people.
The professional singers appeared late and they were called minstrels - poet singers , who were declaiming their lyrics to their masters.
Beginning from those days ,music has been considered an "art", based on the anatomical capacities of an only instrument :VOICE
The way the voice works
It's hard to believe that days can pass without talking and whispering.
How can people make themselves understood?How does the voice work?
Essentially , both talking and singing are produced by forcing the air passing from the lungs through the vocal chords - two strips of tissue which are located in the larynx or the resonance box.As well as the reed of a bassoon in the case of a wind instrument made of wood ,the vocal chords make the air vibrate , producing the sonorous waves.The more extended the vocal chords are , the higher the musical notes will be.Man's vocal chords are much longer and thicker than women's.That's why man's voices are usually lower.
Every singer controles his breath and vocal chords , but only the well trained ones manage to do this by using professional techniques.
Here are some of the world's most beautiful voices: Enrico Carusso, Montserrat Caballé, Giuseppe Distefano, Maria Callas, Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, José Carreras , Plácido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti.

Music nowadays has taken a wrong and unexpected turn.The music composed for the royal courts,classic and peaceful, was gradually replaced with the commercial one,without substance and emotion.
Do you think that becoming a singer implies knowing much about music,or is the money which count?
Music is a way of living (17)
Everyone can become a singer (9)
The ability of singing counts (3)
We can combine both (3)
Musical knowledge counts best (4)
- The ability of singing counts
If you want to become a singer you have to know much about music evolution and to be able to sing well.In our opinion not anyone can become a singer.Singers need to have a nice voice and musical experience in order to be considered truly singers.As money can not buy happiness, money can not buy a good voice.Nowadays music took an unexpected turn. Everybody becomes a singer overnight.That's why valuable music is no longer listen to and people do not know who was Haydn or other representatives.We have to stop this decay and bring back to life the "Old Music" which truly transmits feelings and profound states.
