Divine Harmony PPt. + Forms for New Students

Divine Harmony 2009-Jones edit – Copy      

–Modern people commonly assume that pre-modern people were stupid, inhabiting a primitive fantasy world detached from reality, unenlightened by science & awash in superstition.
———————————————————————-
–Quite the opposite.   Pre-modern people were closer to nature knowing vividly the patterns, rhythms & cycles of life on earth.  They viewed the heavenly cycles of the sun, moon & stars to keep time, establish calendars & navigate their travels.
———————————————————————-

–This Power Point presentation, produced with the assistance of my archaeologist husband Garth, Astronomer John Pratt and several Music Educators & Historians, is a brief overview of the History of Music from very ancient times — approximately 3,000 BC to modern times.  Heavenly and earthly cycles of life are cosmologically the foundation of our western musical scales, rhythms and harmonies.    This means that the music we make on our well tempered keyboards today is “in tune” with the cosmos.
