October music tastes the richness of this time of year  —Autumn, Thanksgiving and Harvest, Hallowe’en.  Themes of harvest and death are the focus of special days in many cultures   e.g. China’s New Moon where families gather and share a meal;  Mexico’s Day of the Dead where death is both mocked, feared and the dead are honoured.

So many ways to make music:

*grace, worship, dinner music

*highs and lows with spooky sounds, music mood

*sound effects,  night time animal noises

*changing voices to match a costume

How will you invite the season into music?

“Music is a moral law.  It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind,  flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”   Plato
