LET MUSIC LEAD

Teaching

“When we actively participate in creating ‘musical’ sound we trigger emotional responses impacting positively on our stress levels and feeling of positive goodwill towards others and ourselves.”

The LydianStream system is for all musicians and recognises that top level musicianship is not only about about great physical technique but also a high level of emotional technique; The Codes of Behaviour are the mature emotional skills all musicians must employ in order to find their own musical voice and develop a ‘signature’ sound.  The LS system presents a clear path that incorporates dedicated techniques and  tools for improving one’s musicianship across all fields, presented in a series of ongoing video lessons and courses for all musicians.

Sound and emotion impact directly on ‘finding your own voice’ as a musician. In todays world professional musicians often find themselves more involved with admin: promotion, social media, finding gigs and so much more, musicians often don’t have time to actually work on all the elements that go into making music. Whether it’s rehearsing with the band, practicing our instrument, composing or producing music. If we are not involved in working on our music every day, then it is very hard for us to grow as musicians.

The LS system is not about re-learning techniques but rather about incorporating deep understandings regarding music, emotions and science into each musicians existing technique.

Pro-active interaction with sound to stimulate innate emotional awareness

Soundscape therapy offers a way for anybody to ‘make’ music and reap the emotional rewards of actively participating in creating sound.

By working with the Lydian Mindharp™ anybody can make music and quickly access pathways to reducing stress and generally enhancing our sense of well being.

Pro-active interaction with sound to stimulate innate emotional awareness

We are all born with a ‘music’ centre in our brain; neural pathways that react almost exclusively to the sound of music. A recent empirical study at M.I.T (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) confirmed this fact in 2015 .The new paper “takes a very innovative approach and is of great importance,” said Josef Rauschecker, director of the Laboratory of Integrative Neuroscience and Cognition at Georgetown University.

So it seems that our brain defines a sound as either environmental; cars, machine noises, water flushing etc or as ‘musical’.

When we actively participate in creating ‘musical’ sound we trigger emotional responses impacting positively on our stress levels and feeling of positive goodwill towards others and ourselves.

Soundscape therapy combines these understandings with mindfulness and meditation to create pro-active mindfulness.

Working with sound is a basic human need. Soundscape therapy makes it possible for anybody to ‘make’ music and improve their quality of life.
