African music is the music of Africans who live in a large region of 50 nations, each with a special culture, history and language, South of Sahara.
Zulu musical instruments are part of this multilingual culture. African music has some distinct characteristics: the use of repetition is one of them. Another important characteristic is the polyphony; this is the combination of different musical parts played simultaneously.

The history is marked by the awesome military strategies of the Zulu King Shaka. The King’s and his warriors’ campaign of expansion is well known in world history...

Start Your Own Sheet Music Collection

Starting a sheet music collection is easy, once you’ve decided what you want to collect. Sheet music is inexpensive and relatively easy to find. You can find music at yard sales, antique shows and on the internet. Only music that is very scarce or rare is expensive. Most pieces can be found at a price between three and twenty five dollars. Extremely rare sheet music can carry a price of up to a thousand dollars, but few pieces fall into this category. You will find music in any color graphic or subject matter you are looking for.

People collect sheet music in many ways. Sometimes sheet music is collected by the genre or songs...

Famous Fender Stratocaster History

Famous Fender Stratocaster History

I can’t for the 1960’s, so here’s the beginning of what I’m hoping to type about in the future when I’m in my favorite decade. Famous Fender Stratocaster History, is not the only widow into the future(anything that is beyond 1945, is this website’s future), so let’s read on and listen to my CD afterwards.


Fender Stratocaster history begins with the man some people call the king of surf music.
Dick Dale is the man who some believe invented surf music as early as the 1950’s. No, it wasn’t the Beach Boys. It was Dick Dale.

He had the musical assistance of Leo Fender, inventor of the Fender Stratocaster. Part of early Fender Stratocaster history includes the story of Leo Fender’s gift to Dick Dale of a Fender Stratocaster to use in his live performances...

The Song Of The Antique Music Box

The Song Of The Antique Music Box

There’s nothing like a music box; those haunting melodies that can instantly take us back in time.
The song of a music box sounds like history; maybe because they have always been a fixture in homes throughout the centuries. Perhaps that is why the antique music box seems so fitting. It is though the music box has been restored to its original form; and in taking its place in our homes, tells the story of a life steeped in history.

The first music box was made by Swiss watchmaker, Antoine Favre in 1796, and acted as a rudimentary record player of sorts, allowing owners to enjoy and entertain with music in their homes. Music boxes continue to evolve under the guidance of their native country...

I’ll be adding more to my website, like this blog, Discover How History Of Music Will Make Your Music More Luminous, so you can learn more about what I’m all about.


When I first started studying the history of music, I did not know what I was getting into.
I had a notion that music history was somewhat of a trivial pursuit…

Honestly, I only followed my history of classical music course because I needed the credits. I am sure some of you out there can relate to that. I did not know how fully interesting music history could be. You see, in our culture many of us do not really study to comprehend music...

Why Am I Doing This?

You might be thinking, Why Am I Doing This, well it’s like this, I been on many musical websites, and to me, their all the same. What I mean is, they have long blogs, which is not fun to read, and only one song, which is in the middle of the blog, with no feelings.I saw the same photo and on a website that texts you about music and the people in the music industry and not have any record album is a poorly done blog, however I don’t think that way, I put the whole album that I could, with the space I have.

I do it this way, because that’s how I would want it to be. I’m not fake either, I only do people who I like and I’m not going to choose...

Musical Films Of 1928

It’s another year for movies and another blog for my website. That means I’ll start to text about musicals on every year. With the movie of The Jazz Singer, is the start of The Talkies, and the start of The Musicals. However, their aren’t any Musical Of 1928  why, I don’t know. I can only guess that the movie industry hasn’t thought about musicals yet. This blog won’t have any information about Musical Of 1928, so even if I was to make a blog about a movie, which means I’m going to text you about nothing but my thoughts about nothing, and afterwards, you can hear one of my CD’s.

I’m not trying to type you nothing, because I have nothing to type about, I’m just typing you that their isn’t any musical movies to type...

It’s like George Lucas, who made the first six Star Wars films, we love his films, but are we interested in him...

2013–present: Return to songwriting – Time and Another Country

In May 2013, Stewart released Time, a rock album of his own original material. It marked a return to songwriting after what Stewart termed “a dark period of twenty years”; he said that writing his autobiography gave him the impetus to write music again. The album entered the UK Albums Chart at number 1, setting a new British record for the longest gap between chart-topping albums by an artist. Stewart’s last No. 1 on the chart had been Greatest Hits Volume 1 in 1979 and his last studio album to top the chart was 1976’s A Night on the Town.
In September 2013, Stewart presented his close friend Elton John with the first Brits Icon award in a special show at the London Palladium, recognising...
