My son really wants me to buy him a guitar, but I am not sure that is the best idea at this point in time. I would really like for him to learn another instrument, such as one that could be played in a marching band, before he moves on to learning how to play the guitar. As such, I am currently looking for music lessons in calgary and I hope to find a pretty good price on the lessons.
Personally, I am not very musically inclined, but I want for my children to be well-rounded individuals with a lot of different skills and abilities. I think that music can really help with development of cognitive skills as well, and that is one of the main reasons why I have determined that I will try to get my son to learn an instrument.

My birthday had come and much to my surprise, my friends got me a guitar for my birthday. I had mentioned that I loved the sound of a guitar and would love to play one some day. The guitar came with a book with instructions on how to play notes and chords, and featured some practice songs and exercises. I followed along with the book for weeks, but my progress was limited. I decided that I couldn’t progress without a teacher, and went to the internet for help. After a little browsing, I found a music teacher directory for those who want to learn how to play the guitar.
The directory was pretty long and featured many music teachers, phone numbers, and pricing, much like a normal directory. However, this directory had a few key differences from what I would normally expect to find. The directory featured a ratings and comments section.
Music is my passion. I have always been into it as I grew up in a house hold that was just soaked in music. From my dad who was in multiple bands to my mother who simply had a passion for listening to good tunes, I was exposed to all genres since a young age and found myself addicted to grooves and beats as I grew older. When I discovered Dubturbo Free I was completely stoked about the idea! I had always wanted to learn how to make some beats, whether they were simple or the kind that I could get down and dirty to on the dance floor, I wanted to be able to construct music from nothing but my imagination and the software that I had at my fingertips. I may not have gone to school for music theory but I feel as if I have a keen ear for a rhythm.
It was difficult at first trying to create a beat from nothing, i kenw that I had to have a good measure of four but finding the right sound was difficult. I wanted it to be something new and different, which in itself is nearly impossible to do, so I decided to stick with the simple drum snare. I found Dubturbo really easy to use and very untuitive once you understood the lay out of the software, everything made perfect sense! I even showed some of my DJ buddies and they were actually impressed by the software and have decided to try and use it out on their own. Hopefully they can show me a thing or two while they use it so I can begin producing my own house beats, perhaps I’ll even get my own job as a party DJ delivering personalized music to the dancers.
The music these days, it’s is just not as good as the music from when I was young. This is always an argument presented by an older generation when comparing the music that they grew up with to the music that the current generation of youth is listening to. It seems that people build such of a strong emotional attachment to the music of their youth, and anything that came before the music that they are accustomed to listening to, or that has come after to them is just missing something. Thanks to the Internet and its Free Music Downloads today’s generation of music listeners has the ability to listen to the music that is popular nowadays, and also get a taste for the music that was popular during their parents and grandparents day.

There are even a lot of programs on the Internet that allow individuals to basically build their own radio station. The advantage of this is that a person can say that they like music produced by a particular artist, and this program will automatically search its huge database for other artist who have a similar sound. Some of these artists are extremely famous musical icons, and others might be some musicians that are relatively unknown outside of the circle of listeners.
All of this has gone a long way in broadening the horizons of many when it comes to what they consider to be good music. Thanks to the Internet it could be that in a few generations people will become so accustomed to listening to music that spans a broad range of years, countries, and categories that the phrase the music from my day is better than your music will no longer be heard.
