Tip No. 6 – Listen to Classical Music
When I was a teenager, I listened to classical music whenever I took a break from the tight schedule of school lessons and homework. It helped to ease my mind from the demand of school activities like tests and exams. One of my classmates had been playing piano since she was a kid. During our school music lessons, sometimes our music teacher would ask her to perform for us. I loved to watch her play. When she was not playing piano, she was just like the usual school kid but more composed than the rest. Once she sat at the piano, she would sit with a pianist pose (if you know what i mean) and I liked to watch her as she glided her fingers so smoothly across the piano keys. Music just filled the classroom and the atmosphere was that artistic. I took up some music instrumental lessons like the piano and guitar after graduation but did not pursue the hobby due to the demand of work. I thought that was the end of my association with classical music then until a concert performing in New York brought me here. When I was first introduced to this concert, my first impression of the concert was a dancing show. However as the curtain lifted up, the opening scene plus the live symphony orchestra was so amazing that i did not want to blink my eyes, the beautiful costumes, the graceful dancers, the huge and at times animated backdrop, the music that accompanies the dancers’ movements (played live by the symphony orchestra in the pit in front of the stage), the story line of the whole concert that transport the audience to thousands of years back in this civilization, and then to the present time of the society, the teachings of the legendary stories depicted in the show…. how i wished it would go on and on even when the two hours and fifteen minutes showtime was over. For those of you who may have watched the concert in your city, you may have by now guessed the name of the show. Yes, it is Shen Yun, a show that took the world by storm as they perform in hundreds of cities during the month of December to the following year’s month of May. Six companies toured the world every year, bringing happiness and hopes in the future to millions of audience everywhere they perform.
Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra is the music of Shen Yun. It is also performing live in a few cities every year. You can visit shenyun.com to see if it is performing in your city. However, if you cannot go to the concert, you can purchase their latest cd in the link below:
The shenyun.com website provides many teachings on classical music, the Shen Yun show and classical Chinese dance. I cannot stop myself from visiting it again and again as there are so much information i can learn from there.
One of the lessons taught on the website was the health benefits your body will experience when you listen to classical music.
That is why I listen to classical music whenever I do my chores at home. I encourage you to incorporate this tip in your lifestyle too.
Enjoy your new discovery!
