Music Is About Ears Not Eyes

I was watching Begin Again when Keira Knightley said "Music is about ears not eyes." and those words just really stuck on me. How true is that. Music is meant to be felt and experienced, not stared at or made artificial. I think it reflects on the previous article, where I talked about how we shouldn't … Continue reading Music Is About Ears Not Eyes

Have You Got 3 Wishes?

If I had 3 wishes right now, they would be: That everyone has the gift of perfect sight. That I could fly. That I could speak all the languages in the world. Although, it seems each time it's something different. Last time, I wished that I could teleport to see my loved ones, be a … Continue reading Have You Got 3 Wishes?

The Carpenters: Nice To Meet You Mr. Postman

Growing up, I listened to The Carpenters. Not because my parents did or because my friends were listening to the classic tunes at the time. My introduction to Karen Carpenters wonderful voice was purely coincidental. A family friend was talking about it in their living room when I was younger, and she played Mr. Postman. … Continue reading The Carpenters: Nice To Meet You Mr. Postman

Can You Play the Flute with Metal Braces?

I remember when I was researching online, many orthodontists, dentists, students and parents said that after a while their patient or child adjusted well to the braces and could continue playing their woodwind instrument. However from making excessive research on this, I decided that I would be able to adjust. I wanted to write this article, … Continue reading Can You Play the Flute with Metal Braces?

memory lane

It's like taking a trip down memory lane. I am amazed at the power of music. How it can trigger a certain memory, person, place, feeling, familiarity and period of time. Putting my ipod on shuffle, without surprisingly skipping every second song and hearing that each one was from my mid-teens. Back in the day, even though … Continue reading memory lane

Sunday Morning

It's Monday night, but the musics got me feeling like Sunday Morning. Beginning the journey of the first day of experiencing the last year of teenage hood. In a reflection of the past year, I would have to say learning from all the kinds of unexpected lessons in life is something that I could not … Continue reading Sunday Morning

Listen Sweetly

Falling in love with the magical sounds of every note and lyric is the best thing about discovering new music. Down below I have compiled music that I've listened to for a number of years. Newly discovered, but never too late, I found Angus and Julia Stone. Happy nevertheless and thanking Youtube. Staring out the … Continue reading Listen Sweetly

Brooklyn Baby

Back in the days (which makes me sound like I was born in the '60s), I was asked "What music do you like Katie?". It's a hard question because I could say I love Classical, Jazz, Hip Hop, Rap, Pop... But the honest answer, I love music that makes me feel good. Being a classical … Continue reading Brooklyn Baby

Thank You 100 Followers!

(while you read this with the music, imagine you're sitting in a cosy jazz cafe in Paris, with the smell of coffee in the air and a hot latte in your hand. That's how I'm feeling) Thank you reader! I can already feel the sweet tooth warmth forming in my stomach as if I've just … Continue reading Thank You 100 Followers!

What a Wonderful World

What a beautiful day it is. Auckland is so majestic on a Summer's day (or should I say Springs day) when the sky is blue and scattered with white clouds and the sun is shining bright. The flower's are so beautiful in the University, today I opened the door to find a lovely surprise from my lovely … Continue reading What a Wonderful World

Daily Thoughts #7

It's the final week. Not a dramatic exclamation especially after eating a chocolate filled bun. It is however the final week of University for 2014. Every moment I keep thinking "this is the last lecture..last time I walk this path..last time I see these people". I'm making myself feel like I am in a movie … Continue reading Daily Thoughts #7
