Music-Education.ruVocal and singing Male and female singing voices

All singing voices are divided into female, male and children’s. The main female voices are soprano, mezzo-soprano and contralto, and the most common male voices are tenor, baritone and bass. All sounds that can be sung or played on a musical instrument are high, medium and low. Musicians, when talking about pitch, use the term “register”, meaning whole groups of high, medium, or low sounds. In a global sense, female voices sing the sounds of a high or “upper” register, children’s voices sing the sounds of a middle register, and male voices sing sounds of a low or “lower” register. But this is only partly true, in fact, everything is much more interesting.

Within each of the groups of votes and even within the range of each individual vote, there is also a division into high, medium and low register. So, for example, the tenor is the high male voice, the baritone is the middle, and the bass is low. Or, another example, the singers have the highest voice – soprano, the middle voice of the vocalists is mezzo-soprano, and the low – contralto. Continue reading

How to keep musicians in a rock band?

Many leaders of rock groups cannot understand why the musicians in their collective are delayed for long. It would seem that this is the person with whom you will work all your life. But time passes, and your guitarist or vocalist leaves the group. Someone explains their departure as a lack of time or children. And someone doesn’t explain anything at all and just stops attending rehearsals. If this happens for the first time, then you can just find a replacement for the musician and not think about anything. But if such withdrawals are repeated, then it is worth thinking about the reasons.

From personal experience I can say that they can be both in the leader of the group, and in the musicians themselves. Here are a few options that I have come across repeatedly. Not a leader It happens that a musician who has gathered a group is a talented composer and poet. He has a lot of material and there is always something to work on. But by nature he is not a leader. Therefore, they generally do not perceive him as the leader of the group, argue with him and prevent him from moving forward. Very often such people are used to achieve their goals. For example, a bass player is required in a group, but you just can’t find it. Continue reading

Alfred Schnittke: let movie music first

Music today penetrates into all spheres of our life. Rather, it can be said that there is no such area wherever the music sounds. Naturally, this fully applies to cinema art. Once upon a time, those days when films were shown only in cinemas and the pianist-illustrator supplemented what was happening on the screen with their game. Silent films replaced the silent films, then we learned about stereo sound, and then a 3D image became a common occurrence. And all this time, music in films was constantly present, and was a necessary element. But moviegoers, absorbed in the plot of the film, do not always reflect on the question: who is involved in the creation of film music. And there is an even more interesting question: if there are a lot of films yesterday, today, and tomorrow, then where do you get so much music to make it enough for dramas, tragedies with comedies, and all the other films? ABOUT THE WORK OF CINEMA COMPOSITORS How many films are so much music, and you can not argue with that. Continue reading
