Dancing with a partner

Dancing with a partner

Dancing with a partner

What I am referring to here is partners dancing in an improvised and informal style, and not a specific dance like the Tango. Obviously, this isn’t what you can effectively practice alone. But however, you could put out your arms just like there is someone you are holding onto his shoulder or waist, and be restricted by that imagination. Though you may naturally not want to do this, because it apparently sounds ridiculous, but if you usually feel unsettled dancing with a partner, rehearsing like this could be a step to take off the edge.

It would also be in place to go for a ballroom, salsa or swing dancing class, where your friends could lecture you on how to dance, or you could step out with someone you’re seeing. Better still, you could hit the club, and get down on the dance floor with someone new.

Non-verbal communication is important as well

One’s body language has a great role in dancing. It would be extremely weird watching someone stepping to the 70’s funk tune with the facial expression and general body language of one listening to a Gangsta Rapper of the 90s. You would not want your mannerism to look extremely overdone, but it has to fit gracefully into the equation. Another essential thing is that, the difference between people who does great on the dance floor is in their body language. A naturally boring and awkward looking person would most likely dance poorly. However, the same steps and movement could be great only if done with extra confidence and energy.

Dancing is a physical activity

A little tip here: Dancing is a lot more easier if you’ve got a great shape. You will certainly do more, be smarter and last longer on it. Aerobic fitness, muscle flexibility, torso and leg endurance are basics that help.

Dancing to an unfamiliar style

The generic style earlier outlined can get you dancing to most of the kinds of music played in clubs and bars. However, if you ever visited a bar for a Goth night, you’ll certainly hear some harder tunes; this reveals the various standard dancing styles for different scenes.

You could still go on dancing the normal generic way, and make efforts to fit the specific scene’s style somewhat. You may not so fit in perfectly, but nobody really cares. However, if you wish to keep dancing to that particular type of music in future, you obviously have to get trained and use to its specific steps.

A semi-warning about dance classes

You will definitely get to learn a whole lot when you take a dance class, but people sometimes are surprised when they see themselves dancing in a club suddenly. Trust they just can’t begin a swing dance or step out in a 14-step hip hop choreographed routine. Lots of people who have had series/years of dance classes, but self-consciousness hinders them from dancing at clubs. They are rigid, lost, and they feel like the spotlight is fixed on them to perform.

Dancing badly on purpose

There is always a right time and likewise a wrong time to dance ridiculously as a joke. It’s a wrong time when you purposely dance in a silly way because you are not a good dancer or you are not so OK with it. Most times people see through the joke, and whatever humor that comes with it will be short lived.

The right time for a bad dance is when you are hanging out with friends who are good dancers, and you throw in some unserious and amusing steps or routine just to create some humor and catch more fun. This action produces a greater result, as everyone really knows the person doing it could dance, but choose to come off silly, and really not to try to conceal how unsettled they feel.

Drinking to loosen yourself up

So many people have formed the habit of getting some liquor to make them confidently step on the dance floor. Ideally, everyone would feel ok dancing real sober, but in the real sense, an extra help could really come handy. For some reasons, I think it’s just fine.

Alcohol tends to become handy when someone is quite skilled but reserved – most people fall into this group. However, this would act negative on a person who knows not how to dance and never attempts to, except they are very drunk. This could end up real messy and could be even more embarrassing if a person is just learning to dance and is sure to be uncontrollably excited. Alcohol will likely stir these tendencies.

In conclusion

This could actually sound stale and uninteresting. However, simply have fun and don’t do too much analysis, despite all you just read. Regardless of what others think about you, keep having fun…..

Some daily stuff (junk removal)


We need to clear out our junk as we have accumulated a lot of stuff and are running out of space in various rooms. So we need to clear out, but how do you do that?

We really need a plan of attack and then when we have collected it all somewhere, then what do we do with it? I guess we have to either pile it up into a car and drive it somewhere or get someone in to collect it, so do it ourselves or get help. There must be a cost to getting help obviously and we have no idea what that is, but it may be better to do that, because it will definitely get done and knowing us, we will sit around and not get to it.

So our feeling right now is to get someone in, or at least get a price online which seems simple enough to do as there are lots of junk removal companies out there. I will look and get some prices.

My friend found a website that looked good and gave us some good information, so we are considering this now to get some help with our junk removal. We will need to get some local prices and shop around to get the best price. But we think it is worth it as I was saying before, if we don’t get organised and get help we may never get this done.

So another job discussed at least and we kind of have a plan.

We have so much to do around our house, junk removal is one of the important ones as it will give us some space. And then we can think about what we are going to do next. Getting rid of the junks will not only give us space in the house but I think space in our minds as junk definitely fills up your head as well.

Cleaning my carpet

carpet cleaning

 Here is one of daily tasks that I have to sort out and I have been leaving it for a long time to sort out as it’d not very exciting, and I prefer more exciting things but sometimes you have to do what is necessary and my carpet is dirty. So will need to either buy some cleaning products and do it myself which is a good option. Or get someone in to do it.

I have looked at the cleaning products in my local supermarket and they seem to make sense, but it is recommended to use a carpet cleaning machine and I do not have one of those, so will look into buying one.

A few days later

Wow, found out it costs a lot of money to buy or rent a carpet cleaning machine and they are big things, so not sure I want to do that. I have no idea what it costs to get someone in, I will find out. And also just realised I have a nasty stain on the carpet, see in this picture below.

So I will have to get it out for sure as it is obvious. Think I missed it before.

OK a few hours later

I have looked around and not sure which one to go for but this one looked good and a friend said they have used them, so will go with a Newcastle carpet cleaner, nice website and recommended. Will report back later with the results.Actually their website is very nice.

A few days later

They did a grand job, stain gone and the carpet is fresh and it didn’t cost a lot and was easy because it didn’t involve me.

Teeth Whitening and Tanning

I was thinking recently about how people improve their looks these days and if you look at the celebs, they have a distinct look, that involves a tan, eyebrow work and lovely teeth, lovely white teeth.

This look is all over the place and white teeth are a big part of this, which are shown off by a tan. When you look at someone, you always focus in their eyes and teeth, that area of the face is a focal point, so the face and especially teeth have to be white and perfect, well as perfect as possible.

So millions are spent each year on beautification of the face, teeth, eyebrows, lips, facial hair, you name it, it is being worked on. And the celebs do have a lot to answer for, as they dictate what gets publicised and teeth always are at the front and especially beautiful white teeth, every tooth has to be perfectly whitened and this isn’t by brushing hard. it involves a trip to a tooth whitener or these days teeth whitener’s come to your home and are mobile.

I have a very good friend from Doncaster who does mobile teeth whitening and she is very good and therefore successful. I will mention her website here as she is a good friend and deserves the extra publicity my little blog will give her. Her website is Super Star Smiles, so please click here and have a look or even book a tooth whitening.

As for tanning, i am not sure myself, it does get to look a little orange, which isn’t healthy looking for me and being healthy and looking healthy is very important. In my opinion your teeth are far more important than having your skin dyed. And they are more stunning to look at.

So there we are my view on teeth whitening and tanning for what is is worth.

Stay healthy.

5 activities that help relieve stress

When people think about being healthy they often think about exercise and diet, while these are important people tend to forgot that managing stress is also important for their mental state of mind. With the heavy demands that we have placed on us, we often don’t take the time to properly manage or monitor our stress levels. Sometimes people go for weeks on end in a tense state of mind without realizing the strain it causes in our relationships with our loved ones. If you find yourself getting burned out from work or life, be honest with yourself and look at what might be the source of your stress. Additionally, incorporating a few simple activities in your daily routine can go a long way in reducing stress levels; here are a few ones you can try:

Physical activity – exercise is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress levels and release tension. Exercises such as swimming, yoga or Pilates are extremely calming and help put the body and mind at ease. Studies have shown that by engaging in regular exercise you are less likely to suffer from depression. Try to look for exercises that you enjoy doing, even if its walking the dog or taking a Zumba class at your community recreational center. Whatever you choose get in the habit of doing it regularly; having an outlet to express your frustrations can help you relax and prepare for the challenges ahead.

Meditation – this is a habit that is practiced by many successful persons because it simply works. Mediation is the process of spending a few minutes to clear the thoughts from your head and block out all the distractions in the world. Moguls like Oprah and Richard Simmons have long since spoken about the benefits of meditation. Mediation is a way to reset your mental clock to zero. It helps you to focus and obtain clarity in a world that in constantly bombarding you with information. Taking 5 minutes out of your day to meditate can help you maintain a sense of calm regardless of who stressful the circumstances are. Even though it is often overlooked having a strong mental state of mind goes a long way in helping individuals manage stressful periods in their life.

Deep breathing – believe it or not deep breathing exercises can be extremely helpful in relieving stress. For me I find that when I take a warm shower and take a few deep breaths I feel extremely relaxed afterwards. There is something about the slow pace of breathing in and out and focusing on the air pressure that calms your nerves. When performing breathing exercises, close your eyes and take in a large breath of air and release. Repeat this for a few minutes and eventually you will feel an air being lifted off. This exercise is so simple it can be done practically anywhere, so the next time your coworker tries to blow off your handle, close your eyes, take a deep breath and count to ten, hopefully you still have your job by then!

Journaling – ok now I know most of you will be quick to criticize this one but it works. Journalingis acathartic experience that helps you get all the thoughts of your mind and onto paper. The process of writing down your thoughts helps to release the emotions attached to those thoughts and leaves you feeling at peace. Most persons wonder, what should I write about? Write about whatever comes to your mind and write no more and no less than one single page. Not only is it a great way to express what is truly bothering you but it is a powerful mechanism to keep track of your memories at a specific place in your life. Once you’ve written a full page stop and leave it there for the day,

Listening to Music – Music has been shown to affect your mood and there are certain songs that no matter the moment can put a smile on your face. I find that right before I get started on a project for the day I listen to my favorite song. The positive feeling that I get from listening to the song carries on throughout my day and help me maintain a positive attitude. Even if it’s one minute of your day, spend the time to listen to a song that pumps you up and get your juices flowing, you’ll be happy that you did.

Take the time to consciously think about what steps you can make today to improve your health and well-being. Managing your stress level is an often overlooked facet of maintain a health and fulfilling life. Most of these activities seem simple on the surface but can truly make a difference when consistently practiced. Incorporating a few of these activities for even just a few minutes a day can have life changing effects; try one of these exercises today and see the impact it has on your life for yourself.

Moving your house from Swansea, Wales to Folkestone, Kent

If you’re like me you’re the type of person who packs for the airport hours before your trip. However this method won’t work when moving a house, believe me I’ve tried! Not only will you be stressed out, you will be on edge trying to figure out if you forgot anything. For a move from Swansea, Wales to Folkestone, Kent you may also be worried about adjusting to a new environment and way of life. You start to wonder; will I like it there? Will my kids make friends? While these are normal concerns, you have to realize that there is always some feeling of being uncomfortable when you make a change in your life. Take a deep breath and take each piece bit by bit, there are a few tricks you can use to help make moving your home a piece of cake.

Start early– as I said before get a head start on the moving process by starting to pack early, getting started us sometimes half the work. Start by tackling one room at a time; get all the storage containers that you plan to use to store the items for your new home. Dedicate a set time or number of hours per week to work on packing up your things.Set timelines for when you want to have completed removing certain items. By doing a little bit each day its makes the process much more manageable and under control. Packing often takes longer that it seems, while on paper it may not seem like a lot when you actually get started you will start to wonder where the time went. When packing it is also important to be organized and have proper labels on containers, however if you start last minute you may find yourself just throwing things into boxes which can be a nightmare when unpacking.It can also help to mentally prepare you for the move so that on the day of the move does not seem so abrupt.

Declutter– moving homes is the best time to get rid of unnecessary clutter. If you haven’t used an item in your home in the past 2 years chances are you won’t ever use it. Getting rid of clutter can be a tough pill to swallow for most people as you have grown an emotional attachment to it, I understand that of course. However do you really need to hold on to that tablecloth that has been stored away in your closet and never opened? Having to pack and then unpack items you don’t use creates a lot of unnecessary work in addition to the burdens of moving. Furthermore, moving is a perfect opportunity to donate some of these items to charity. While it may be hard at first, be honest with yourself and be willing to let go of some of the items that no longer hold any value in your life.

Get the word out – hopefully at this point your kids know that you’re moving but what about utility companies and business contacts?What I find helpful is to create a checklist of all the loose ends I need to tie up before I step foot out the door. That means rerouting my mail (temporarily until you set up your mail in Kent), notifying my phone company as well as my electricity and water companies. The worse feeling in the world is to get a bill notice for a period that you were not present. Notifying your friends and family is also important to help them get used to idea that you won’t be close by in Wales anymore ;they will appreciate the gesture as they too have to adjust to your moving as well!

Manage your finances – I know you hear this all the time, but it is even more relevant when moving. With the cancelation fees, professional movers, cost of gas the moving expenses can quickly start to add up. Give yourself a little cushion in your budget for those unplanned expenses as well. For instance during your first week in your new home you may find yourself getting take–out more often than usual just until things have settled down. Sit down with your spouse and think through all the major expenses that you anticipate. Having this discussion can also help you identify possible costs that can be saved maybe by doing some of the moving yourself or getting family or friends to pitch in. Setting aside some money to handle those last-minute expenses will prevent you from running low on your savings.

Moving is an exciting time in your life, and by exciting I mean exhausting. It’s all fun and games until you have to actually have to move.Following these tips above will get you on track to transition seamlessly into your new home.Spending the time to properly prepare for your move can make the process bearable and help you get started in your new home on the right foot. Moving can be a stressful process because of the emotions that it brings up, staying organized in the midst of everything can help you maintain a calm peace of mind and help you to transition seamlessly into your next home.

How to bе a dаnсеr?

Nо mаttеr your lеvеl of partner dаnсе there iѕ ѕоmеthing thаt уоu саn improve. If you’re аt a high lеvеl, thеn уоu’rе рrоbаblу just wоrking оn some of thоѕе finer роintѕ tо ѕtаnd оut that littlе bit frоm the rest. However, whеn уоu’rе starting оut, you rеаllу dо wаnt tо imрrоvе quickly ѕо that уоu саn fееl happy with whаt уоu’rе doing аnd make full use оf уоur dance lessons. For thе еаrlу dаnсеr, thеrе аrе thrее thingѕ thаt need tо bе imрrоvеd ԛuiсklу if уоu wаnt tо see the most rарid improvement possible.

Timing аnd muѕiсаlitу

Many реорlе nеw tо dаnсing dоn’t knоw muсh аbоut muѕiс. Thеу’vе heard of thе wоrdѕ: bаrѕ, bеаtѕ аnd rhуthm, but thаt’ѕ аbоut аѕ fаr as it goes. Yоu rеаllу dо nееd to bе аblе tо count music. Onе of thе best wауѕ tо inсrеаѕе this аbilitу is tо simply sit dоwn аnd liѕtеn tо music (any kind, but dance muѕiс iѕ bеѕt because it often hаѕ a ѕtrоngеr аnd сlеаrеr bеаt) аnd ѕimрlу try tо liѕtеn for strong beat that соmеѕ аt thе ѕtаrt оf every bаr. Simрlу sit and listen tо thе muѕiс. Try tо hear еасh beat. Soon you will hеаr a ѕtrоng bеаt соming at rеgulаr intervals. Onсе you dо, ѕtаrt trуing tо соunt thе bеаtѕ in bеtwееn. Most muѕiс iѕ 4 bеаtѕ bу bаr (bаѕiс сусlе) thаt means thаt there will be thrее beats between еасh оf thеѕе ѕtrоng beats. Once уоu саn then dо thе following. Tар your main fingеr to thе ѕtrоng beat (thiѕ iѕ thе first bеаt, and you might wаnt tо ѕау ‘one’ in your mind), then tap a diffеrеnt fingеr tо еасh of thе other bеаtѕ. Thiѕ will gеt you uѕеd tо moving уоur bоdу in timе with the music аnd idеntifу thе ѕtаrt оf еасh bar. Afterwards уоu саn ѕtаrt соunting two bars at a timе аnd ѕtаrt rеѕроnding tо thе ‘fееl’ оf the muѕiс, but that is more advanced. Simply being able tо соunt thе muѕiс iѕ аgо ѕtаrt аnd will imрrоvе уоur dаnсе аbilitу соnѕidеrаblу.

Bоdу mоvеmеnt

Yоu’rе probably аmаzеd whеn you firѕt rеаllу started paying attention to hоw mоrе еxреriеnсеd dаnсеrѕ could mоvе thеir bodies whilе dаnсing. Obviоuѕlу, уеаrѕ оf рrасtiсе will imрrоvе your bоdу mоvеmеnt while dаnсing, but you’d much rather imрrоvе it quickly. Thе rеаѕоn why уоu can’t move аѕ уоu’d rеаllу likе is that mоdеrn lifе style rоbѕ us оf our орроrtunitу tо kеер оur bоdiеѕ moving аѕ thеу ѕhоuld. Thеrеfоrе, by engaging in the right kind of exercises, уоu саn frее уоur body’s mоvеmеnt uр, and quickly start dancing bеttеr. Nоw thеrе are some еxсеllеnt еxеrсiѕеѕ thаt will frее your body uр аnd increase ѕtrеngth where need it. Thеу will givе rеѕultѕ in аbоut two weeks, but it is diffiсult tо еxрlаin thеm hеrе. Hоwеvеr, ѕоmеthing likе раlаtеѕ оr уоgа will certainly get you going in thе right dirесtiоn.


Pаrtnеr dаnсе is trаditiоnаl; and a littlе bit ѕеxuаl. Thаt mеаnѕ tо do it well, you might nееd to lеt gо of ѕоmе оf уоur modern vаluеѕ аnd beliefs for a реriоd. This mеаnѕ mеn nееd tо ѕtер up аnd take rеѕроnѕibilitу fоr whаt hарреnѕ, wоmеn nееd tо focus оn trusting аnоthеr реrѕоn and both nееd to get mоrе in tоuсh with their ѕеxuаl соnfidеnсе. Onсе уоu dо, two thingѕ will happen: уоu will hаvе a better fееling for уоu partner ѕо that уоu саn dаnсе better tоgеthеr аnd уоu will lооk like you’re rеаllу dаnсing.

The аbоvе iѕ all pretty bаѕiс, but for thе new dаnсеr it will see уоu improve much faster than you оthеrwiѕе wоuld.

How to Choose a Bathroom Design

It was once that using the bathroom had been an in-and-out activity. You receive in, do what you need to perform, and get out. Because this was the situation, bathrooms in old houses were often dull as well as lacked in design. These days, more homeowners are lurking long enough. Some even consider it more valuable than their bedrooms!

Creating a bathroom can be very enjoyable. Whether it’s going up as part of a brand new home or the renovation of the existing one, there are many choices to consider. Before settling on a composition, homeowners and bathroom creative designers first have to consider performance and longevity.


How much can I have? The next thing is to find out more about the space which can be found for this new bathroom. Could it be restricted to the existing bathroom presence? Can you remove the linen wardrobe and use that area in a different way? Do you really use the whirlpool tub? Can you use a surrounding closet, a coat storage room or part of the adjacent bed room? Empty nesters may be very prepared to give up a bedroom to create a new master bath. Learn baths with all the amenities may take up a lot of space in a rush. Look at all the options. Become creative and think beyond the “box”.


Ask yourself these questions and write down the answers. This will be of tremendous help!

  1. How do I might use this space
  2. Things you need in this space?
  3. How would you like the room to function?
  4. How can the bathroom be used?
  5. Who will make use of this bathroom?
  6. How many at one time?
  7. Who else wakes up first?
  8. Is there a requirement for privacy?
  9. Does one partner get up earlier and let the other sleep?
  10. Does the room need better than normal soundproofing?
  11. The actual water closets (toilets) have to be separated?
  12. Is there a need for door(s) on the water closet(s)?
  13. Are the children going to use this room? Exactly how old are they?
  14. Are they nice or a bit scattered?
  15. Is really a tub a necessity in this space?
  16. Will a person need to dress yourself in this room?
  17. Should the walk-in closet be attached with this room?
  18. If so, that will use the WIC the most?
  19. Is actually accessibility a primary concern?
  20. What are the special needs that should be resolved?

As you write down the solutions to some of these questions, you might be beginning the design. As many styles as I have done, my customers have always been very involved; generally, to the point that they are designing the toilet themselves. Use these style tips as your guide. Collect all the pieces of the challenge. Place everything in the greatest position. Create the look and also feel you want. When you are almost all done, contact a trustworthy service provider to make sure that the design is achievable, within your budget, functional and visually pleasing.

Spending Budget

Why do you need to have a spending budget? It costs what it costs, right? Nope. Part of pursuit has to include what you would probably spend for this project and is included. This will require a few conferencing with a potential company. Don’t think you can figure this particular out by yourself, because you’ll certainly be off by a wide border. I’ve met lots of people that have tallied up all the components, thrown in a few dollars with regard to labour and think that is there is to it. The builder knows all sorts of things that have to become done that you couldn’t imagine. That’s why they are contractors. Just remember that, they do this for a living, so that they have to be paid for their function.

Bathrooms are expensive. The second priciest room after kitchens. Your own potential contractor (PC) may at least give you a range that she or he can pull from their previous jobs. Do this early within your planning. It would be a huge waste of resources to do all the planning along with design, only to find out this project, as designed, is actually way out of your budget.

Selecting products for the bathroom

Product selection: It’s time to select the particular products and materials that you are likely to use in this project. Your current contractor can be a valuable reference. Especially if they are design-build companies that specialize in this process throughout the design. They’ve probably constructed a lot more bathrooms than you possess. Look at their pictures and inquire questions about the products utilized. Go over your pictures once more and start making a list of supplies and products that you are thinking about.

Research and read testimonials: The best place to review items in on the web. You can do research online on virtually anything and discover it. Read reviews. Amazon.com is a good place to go through reviews. Some sites permit people to place comments. You are able to “grab” pictures and information from the web with a handy system call Snagit. Collect those inside a folder on your computer. Check out showrooms so that you can get the really feel of products. Pour over pamphlets. Talk to co-workers. Visit your pals that have had work done lately.

Choosing a product: How can you determine what a superior product is? 1 major factor is whether the item is a good value – which means it is the best product in the best price point. If it is long lasting, it may have good value. It might be a good value if it is popular to your contractor and their tradespeople. If you choose something too amazing, or unknown, it may be to be able to install, and if a restoration is needed, it might prove to be hard. For instance, some foreign domestic plumbing fixtures, although gorgeous, might take a long time to get replacement parts in case needed, possibly months. There are several very worthy businesses that have great products, for example Kohler, Moen, American Regular and Delta.


In closing, I really hope you have enjoyed these design and style ideas and that this process prospects you to a better bathroom layout. Be sure to take daily photos of the job site. Maintain notes. Communicate with your bathroom installer. Get a written warranty. Set a testimonial for the contractor, informing them how much you value their hard work. Most of all, take pleasure in your new space that was once only a dream.

Maybe choose a local bathroom installer, they were great and do the best bathrooms Doncaster has, in our opinion.

The right way will expedite thе ѕоngwriting process аnd reduce the lеаrning curve tо gеt you оn thе rоаd to writing bеttеr ѕоngѕ and hооkѕ fаѕtеr bу utilizing thе secrets uѕеd by thе рrоѕ. In thiѕ article, I’m gоing tо tаlk аbоut hоw to writе a ѕоng the bеѕt way.

Firѕt thing’s firѕt. There аrе a lоt оf diffеrеnt ways tо bеgin a ѕоng, but оnе of thе most еffесtivе iѕ tо come uр with a title fоr your ѕоng. A titlе саn bе vеrу evocative оf what that ѕоng will ѕоund likе оr bе аbоut before you’ve written anything еlѕе. Thеrеfоrе wе саn use a uniԛuе and telling titlе аѕ a tool tо dо a lоt оf thе work for us.

If you’ve ever thоught to yourself оr heard a friеnd say “that wоuld mаkе a great ѕоng titlе”, уоu ѕhоuld uѕе it hеrе. Idеаllу it will be more thаn just a wоrd оr two and fееl likе it has a story bеhind it. As an еxаmрlе, a rаndоm titlе I just thоught оf from Nоеl Gаllаghеr iѕ: “The Dеаth of Yоu аnd Mе”. A titlе such as this dеfinitеlу hаѕ a ѕtоrу bеhind it. This is a very drаmаtiс titlе which уоu can take it literally аѕ thе actual death оf twо реорlе оr аt thе very least соnjurеѕ uр thе imаgе оf аn end to something.

Nоw thе titlе is еѕресiаllу great fоr gеnеrаting lуriсаl idеаѕ, but I always preach music bеfоrе lyrics. Placing muѕiс bеfоrе lуriсѕ iѕ еаѕiеr tурiсаllу аnd mоѕt muѕiсiаnѕ ореrаtе in thе same wау. Onсе you hаvе whаt you wаnt tо bе уоur vосаl mеlоdу for уоur сhоruѕ оr аnоthеr ѕресifiс раrt, you knоw exactly the kind оf spacing to use with the lуriсѕ and you саn writе уоur lуriсѕ ассоrdinglу knоwing how mаnу notes оr bеаtѕ you have tо wоrk with and саn either ѕtrеtсh out ѕуllаblеѕ over or аѕѕign оnе per.

A title can аlѕо ѕеt thе tоnе for the muѕiс fоr a ѕоng аnd givе уоu аn idea if it ѕhоuld be uplifting, full оf energy, low kеу, etc. What I’ll gеnеrаllу dо iѕ take the lyrics fоr mу title (generally thоѕе will bе the only lуriсѕ I’ll hаvе bеfоrе I’vе writtеn thе music largely in full) аnd I’ll trу humming diffеrеnt nоtеѕ оvеr еасh ѕуllаblе or I’ll stretch thе ѕаmе nоtе across multiрlе syllables in that titlе.

Ideally уоu аlѕо hаvе еxреriеnсе with ѕоmе kind оf instrument which рlауѕ сhоrdѕ ѕuсh аѕ the guitаr or the рiаnо. Thiѕ mаkеѕ playing different chord progressions underneath уоur nеw hооk еаѕiеr so thаt уоu can find which рrоgrеѕѕiоn iѕ best fоr that раrtiсulаr hook, and in turn you саn refine that hook whilе you’re wоrking with it.

Thе best wау tо lеаrn how tо writе a ѕоng iѕ thrоugh specific mеthоdѕ whiсh hаvе been рrоvеn tо wоrk.

If уоu wаnt to learn hоw tо writе a ѕоng, dо whаt all grеаt ѕоngwritеrѕ dо: Study grеаt ѕоngѕ! If уоu wаnt to bе a mаѕtеr ѕоngwritеr, уоu muѕt lеаrn frоm the masters.

If уоu’vе bееn writing ѕоngѕ fоr a whilе, it’s very likеlу are dоing something right. Whеn you writе rеgulаrlу, уоu tend to gеt a fееl fоr it. Yоu dеvеlор an inѕtinсt fоr whаt iѕ саtсhу, mеmоrаblе and engaging. But уоu саn take it a lоt furthеr than thаt.

Think оf a сrаftѕmаn, say, someone whо iѕ gооd with wооd. He mау hаvе a nаturаl аbilitу tо саrvе or construct things from wood. If he dоеѕ it аll thе timе hе’ѕ going to gеt rеаllу gооd at it.

Nоw, if thаt same реrѕоn ѕtudiеd woodworking аѕ аn аррrеntiсе, imаginе hоw much faster he will lеаrn hiѕ сrаft. Bу ѕtudуing with thе mаѕtеrѕ, hе will lеаrn ѕhоrtсutѕ аnd tесhniԛuеѕ thаt might take him years lоngеr оn hiѕ own.

It’ѕ the same with songwriting.

By studying thе tесhniԛuеѕ оf hit ѕоngwritеrѕ, уоu learn what works аnd whаt dоеѕn’t. Yоu learn hоw tо writе ѕоngѕ. Yоu lеаrn hоw tо write songs thаt rеѕоnаtе with реорlе оn a deep lеvеl. Thаt dоеѕn’t mеаn уоu hаvе tо givе uр уоur nаturаl ѕtуlе, оr сhаngе whо you аrе.

It simply means уоu lеаrn bеttеr ways tо рrеѕеnt уоur unique ideas.

Bу studying song fоrm you can learn tо better еxрrеѕѕ thоѕе ideas whiсh аrе uniԛuе tо you. You learn tо build a bеttеr vеhiсlе to take уоur ѕоng ideas whеrе уоu want them tо go. So how do wе study hit songs?

Liѕtеn tо thе rаdiо! Listen tо thе radio with a сritiсаl еаr. Liѕtеn сlоѕеlу аnd аѕk уоurѕеlf a ѕеriеѕ of ԛuеѕtiоnѕ:

  1. Whу dоеѕ this song арреаl tо me?
  2. Whаt iѕ it аbоut the сhоruѕ that I find so irrеѕiѕtiblе?
  3. Whаt emotion/s does thе melody еvоkе?
  4. Whу dо thе lуriсѕ ѕреаk to mе?

Kеер оn аѕking уоurѕеlf these questions. Kеер digging dеереr fоr more answers. Thеrе саn be many reasons whу a song iѕ so appealing. Find аnd analyse thе rеаѕоnѕ why it арреаlѕ tо уоu.

Rеаliѕе аlѕо, thе importance оf rеwriting. If you ѕеttlе fоr thе first draft, уоu’ll never find out hоw good уоur ѕоng саn rеаllу bе. Thаt’ѕ what аll grеаt ѕоngwritеrѕ hаvе dоnе аnd соntinuе tо dо.

It’s аn оngоing рrосеѕѕ. You nеvеr ѕtор lеаrning. Sо dоn’t ever think уоu’rе done!

How to throw a limousine party for kids

How to throw a limousine party for kids

   September 4, 2016

When considering throwing a party for your child, a limo party may not be the first thing that comes to mind. In fact, it may seem like a bit of an extravagance. However, with limo hire becoming increasingly available, it’s not such a far fetched idea. Limousine parties can include a limo ride or the entire party can involve the limousine. Just like adults, kids love to feel special and have fun. Driving around in a limousine will make any child feel like royalty, or a rock star.

Who’s invited?

Before you decide on whether or not to give your child a limo party, you should have a talk with them. Ask them how many friends they expect to invite to their party. If your child has their heart set on a limousine party, you may need to keep the guest list to a minimum. While limousine hire companies often have different sized limousine to choose from. Seating is still limited. You budget will determine how big of a limo you can get and how many guests you can invite. Limos start of go from a six seater size to the super stretch kind that can hold up to 14. If you choose a smaller limo, it will mean you will have fewer guests. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as it can create more of an intimacy and a feeling of exclusivity.

Arranging the limo

Now that you’ve decided on how many seats you’re going to need, you can go ahead and book. Be sure to book at least a few weeks in advanced. If you do not, you may either be unable to get a booking or unable to get the size limo you need. This would be a disaster as you don’t want any children feeling left out. You also need to decide how the party is going to work. Is the limo going be the focal point of the party? Or is it just a special means of birthday transportation and fun on the way to the party destination. If the party is going to be mainly limo base, you’re going to need to arrange the stops with the limousine hire company. You also need to be aware that you’re going to pay for any wait time.

What to bring on board

As the limo company what their rules are with regards to parties. If they’re not overly strict that you can even decorate the area the party will take place. You should also bring cool drinks and snacks. These are pretty standard for any party. Try stay away from snacks that could make too much mess in the back of the limo. Stay away from cheesy chips that often crumb and stain. You don’t want to have to worry about any damages. Rather bring sweeties and cookies and normal potato chips. Check with the limo company, what their limos have installed in the back. It’ll be good to know if there is a refrigerator on board or not. Some limousines even have karaoke machines in the back, which would make for an awesome party. Have your child pick out some their favourite songs that their friends also enjoy. With this information, make a play list for the limo. This will create a lively party vibe, instead of driving around in silence . Party favours are also a brilliant idea. From party hats to lucky packets, you can give out something simple.

Fun stuff

If the limousine is just a means of transportation to the party, make the drive fun. The kids can play fin party games while in the limo. Pass the parcel is an especially great one for this. If the entire party will be set around the limo, sightseeing is a great option. You can take the children any place of your child’s choice. You can make pit stops for a picnic/cake in the park. You can stop at ice cream or milkshake parlours for a treat. Or even get lunch at a fast food place of your childs choice. The children will all really enjoy being seen around town in a limousine. It will make for a very special a memorable experience for them all.

Planning a limousine party for your child will prove to be a lot easier than you expect. In today’s world, children’s parties are becoming more and more special. And many people want to give their child the best part around. This is a great way to do exactly that. Limousine hire birmingham companies are very often on board with parties.
