3 Social benefits of learning and playing our Feadog Whistle – part 4
by Joao Ferreira
After weeks at home due to the quarantine. It is time already to some of us come back to work and usual activities.
So, I consider it is the moment to talk about the benefits. To play and show your performances of weeks of learning and practice.
I really hope after learning and practicing you share your performances through our Social Media.
So, I gathered these 3 special benefits:
1- Martial Music
Both the Greek and Roman armies used brass and percussion instruments. To convey information on the march, in the field and in camp. Greek armies on campaign employed musicians to accompany poetic recitations of odes and paeans designed to remind soldier and citizen alike of the valour of past heroes.
2- Music Therapy
The formal discipline of music therapy has a rich, long history in providing services for our American heroes. It began after World Wars I and II, when community musicians performed in veterans’ hospitals and medical professionals noticed patients’ positive and emotional responses to music. In 1944, when it became evident that these hospital musicians required special training.
3- Manipulating morale trough music
While burgeoning technology eclipsed the need for music to accompany movement on the battlefield by the mid-20th century, it remained an effective means by which states could manipulate the morale, energies and attitudes of armies and indeed entire populations.
It is always good to remind everyone to wash the hands and keep social distancing.
I believe after these 3 benefits, you will be inspired to learn how to play our Feadog Whistles better and better. So, browse our website and look for the one that suits you.
