    coming of Jesus for his church. He described how the groom would leave for days to prepare a home for his bride and only his father would know when is the right time to pick up his bride. In the Bible, it says that Jesus is preparing a home for its bride the church and only the father known when he is ready to lift up the church. Las Bodas is like a letter saying that the bride (the church) is waiting for its groom(Jesus) to come and take her to her new home (heaven). This song is in a verse-chorus form where the chorus is repeated twice and the tempo of the song is also slow like Inexplicable. The instruments in this song include an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar, a drum set, and the congas. By having the congas gave the gospel song a Latin flare that made it very unique and beautiful since most slow tempo songs don’t usually contain congas. This time, Angel himself sang this song and it was amazing how he had such a control in his voice to go from a high note to a lower one. Las Bodas is the song that gave me the chills and that I can listen to all day long. After Ester and Angel performed more amazing songs another singer named Angel Figueroa performed in the concert. Figueroa is also a Puerto Rican singer but he is much younger than Angel, he is around his mid thirty’s. Figueroa does not play any instrument but he has an amazing voice, it is very strong and thick. Figueroa chooses to perform a faster tempo song that was highly syncopated and used a lot more…

    After completing my first semester at Ohio State, I can already tell I am part of something very special. Granted, when I was accepted and when I made my decision to attend, I started to get the feeling that this would be the case.

Toledo as always been the place I call home, and I have spent most of my time in Ohio as well. I know the…

    Whenever someone has free time they usually find something fun to do. As for myself, I found that audio engineering; lighting and special effects design, playing and learning about percussion instruments, and anything electronic or technical related are great things to play around with. When I was a little kid, I always played with different toys of mine that either ran on batteries, or that plugged into an electrical socket and/or took my toys apart so see how they worked. So, from that moment…

    first long-term goal. In my school, there were only three percussionists in my grade and if one of us quit it would've killed the rhythm section in the band, so we all vowed never to quit. I took that vow extremely seriously and remembered it whenever I felt like giving up in the years to come. Likewise, in 5th grade, the high school jazz band performed at my school and totally blew me away, so I made a long-term goal and promised myself that I would one day be in that band. Finally making the…

    Eight marching drums menacingly stand surrounded by the dim light of flickering fluorescent bulbs dangling above. The new recruits enter the room and slowly walk to their respective drum—their new homes for the next hours. All members stand with wide eyes and unstable posture. They nervously wait for the tech’s commands. The room encompassed in a seemingly endless silence. The tech sounded off and the new drumline members stepped off in perfect time and began the never ending, never moving…

    It is hard to picture the Beatles without Ringo or Led Zeppelin without Bonham. These drummers many not be front and center, but they are the back bone to the band. And without the Drum set these drummers would have never been. Jazz or Rock n Roll or Pop music wouldn’t be the same without the invention and evolution of the drum set. The drum set took over a century to become what it is today. The drum set is an American instrument and through its development it has reflected the way America has…

    Steel drum music has the ability to move an audience like no other type of music. From the first note, the songs exude a happiness from within each pannist. Even with the slower pieces, you can close your eyes and imagine yourself in a tropical surrounding. The AISD concert, conducted by CJ Menge, which took place April 14, 2012 certainly did not disappoint. The concert was performed in Austin, Texas and featured steel drum bands from seven middle and high schools in the area. The first piece,…

    was a struggle but I willingly joined because if I was not hauling up a synth to the band room, who would? My boyfriend Will thrust the registration form in my hand the day he received an extra copy. My brain rushed through all the possibilities in marching band. The experience had a euphoric essence in my mind when I envied over my new friends. But I had two concerns: The first being that I’m not a very skilled or experienced musician, and my other concern was the cost and time commitment.…

    Melissa Hirokawa, who is the owner of Living Spirit Therapy and a board-certified music therapist, sings to a woman who is in end stage Alzheimer’s. The woman with Alzheimer’s, named Dorothy, starts to react to the music almost immediately. Dorothy starts to smile, and even sing and dance with the music being sung to her. This is an example of stimulative music, because the upbeat tempo of the song encouraged Dorothy to dance and move around. Sedative music, however, is a key part in helping…
