    Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor

    Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor Steelasophical YouTube Channel Contact Steelasophical Steelasophical Price List Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor Composed 1788. note by James Keays Mozart’s last three symphonies come from the extraordinarily creative summer of 1788. In the space of slightly over six weeks, he composed the Symphony in E-flat, K. 543; the Symphony in G minor, K. 550; and the Symphony in C major, K. 551. The entries in Mozart’s catalog are dated, respectively, June 26, July 25, and August 10. During the 19th century, it was popularly believed that Mozart wrote the works with no specific performance in mind. Furthermore, he supposedly created them out of an inner desire to provide a symphonic last will and testament. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In 1788, he had no reason to assume that these would be his last symphonic works. Had he been able to follow Haydn to London in 1792, as had been planned, he would have most certainly composed at least six more. As for composing them without having a performance in mind, this is also fiction. Mozart simply didn’t work that way. Even a single symphony was too big a work [...]

    Wedding Steel Band Hire

    Wedding Steel Band Hire Wedding Steel Band Hire We at Steelasophical Steel Band & Ambience Music Dj had a great time performing at Amy's wedding drinks reception following her wedding ceremony. Initially we were set up outside in the courtyard. The weather threatened to rain all morning but we took the risk of setting up outside as we knew that would be the best location to create the best atmosphere. But as feared, no more than 20mins in t the reception, the heavens opened and the rains came The guests were wonderful. A few of the guys came over an offered to help carry some of our equipment indoors, and within 10 mins we were relocated and the music started up again. There was no let-up, the musical atmosphere was reclaimed and everyone had a great time. See below the amazing pictures and feedback from the bride Amy. This is very much the typical reaction we receive from couples and guests and a gentle reminder why we love so much what we do and how we do it.

    150 Best First Dance Songs 150 Best First Dance Songs Steelasophical Steel Band Dj Facebook How to Choose Your First Dance Song Making your first dance song choice can be challenging, especially where both partners have differencial likes in music genre, style, tempo etc. You could have different ideas about whether your first song should be slow or up-tempo. One of you may well be adamant about having a song that holds special memories from family or childhood, so it could really be a minefield. Out of all the music played, the first dance will define the tone of your day, whether cheesy, tender, romantic,  moment; for others, a carefully choreographed routine your guests would not be expecting or a short and sweet rendition closely follwed by the 2nd and 3rd dance with close family and friends joining you. You will be kicking off the wedding evening party mood! You will never forget your first dance moment. Among those cherished occasions in your life that’ll you’ll look back on, your first time dance together as a married couple will be one of the most iconinc & memorable.

  • Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance Period

    Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance Period "Willing to do more than we should.... eventually we'll be paid to do more than we do." Three S's in Success when it comes to delivering brilliant customer service. Whether you working in an organisation serving customers and colleagues or running a department or the whole organisation, the principles are the same. Standards..... The first is to set our own standards of customer service - decide to be outstanding, to serve people to the highest level. Regardless of whether they deserve or if we have to. We give the best level of service we can because of who we are, not because of who they are, or to meet their company's expectations. The fact is that you only really get noticed, stand-out or move ahead when you do more than you have, without being prompted. Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance Period The great shame is that most customer service people just preform at a level that is often at best indifferent and worst poor. They do the least, the minimum, they have to. The average person gives average service, survey after survey shows to be true. But you can be different, success is a choice. Simply start by making a decision, today and from not on, to be brilliant and then define what that is. [...]

    Wedding Cake Cutting Guide

    Wedding Cake Cutting Guide Wedding Cake Cutting Guide: Steelasophical Wedding Day Advice  One of the very last things thought about on the big day, is how best to slice the cake to make sure all the guests have a decent sized piece to toast the happy couple. However it really wouldn’t do for someone to go without especially one of our gorgeous fruit cakes and it’s more difficult than it looks to work out how many portions to cut. Here is a handy guide by Nude Cakes on how best to show you exactly how to cut the cake, whether it is square or indeed round. It’s widely accepted to cut the cake into 1″ x 2″ pieces – this gives a decent couple of bites of cake and ensures plenty of slices can be cut from the cake. When cutting a round cake of course some of the corners will be slightly more or less than this, but the guide below will show you how to get the most accurate slices.

High Tenor

The high tenor (also known as a soprano pan) is the highest pitched of the steel drums (steel pans) with a pitch range of D4 to F#6, that is, up to two octaves and a major third from D above middle C (C4). Its predecessor actually contained fewer notes which were within the tenor range. However, the name “Tenor” was kept despite the higher range of its descendant, the soprano pan. The notes of this pan is arranged in the cycle of 4ths, going clockwise.


The high tenor pan is a lead instrument and normally carries the melody. However, these steel drums can easily play a harmonic role depending on the desire of the music arranger.The high tenor is commonly used by pan soloists.

Low Tenor

The Low Tenor, which has a pitch range from C4 to E6 has notes that are arranged in the same order as the high tenor. The function of this steel pan is the same as that of the high tenor and it is also used by pan soloists.

Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor

May 16th, 2022|Comments Off on Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor

Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor Steelasophical YouTube Channel Contact Steelasophical Steelasophical Price List Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor Composed 1788. note by James Keays Mozart’s last three symphonies come from the extraordinarily creative summer of 1788. In the space of slightly over six weeks, he composed the Symphony in E-flat, K. 543; the Symphony in G minor, K. 550; and the Symphony in C major, K. 551. The entries in Mozart’s catalog are dated, respectively, June 26, July 25, and August 10. During the 19th century, it was popularly believed that Mozart wrote the works with no specific performance in mind. Furthermore, he supposedly created them out of an inner desire to provide a symphonic last will and testament. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In 1788, he had no reason to assume that these would be his last symphonic works. Had he been able to follow Haydn to London in 1792, as had been planned, he would have most certainly composed at least six more. As for composing them without having a performance in mind, this is also fiction. Mozart simply didn’t work that way. Even a single symphony was too big a work to undertake without the promise of some type of financial gain. Of the three 1788 symphonies, the Symphony in G minor, K. 550 (popularly referred to as No. 40, but probably No. 53), is the most original and has had the greatest influence on future composers. Few works from then 18th century are as intense, chromatic, and unconventional. The choice of key is, in itself, a measure of the work’s profundity. Mozart wrote only three substantial mature works in G minor, a key commonly associated (according to 18th century aesthetic principles) with “lamentation” and “suffering.” There are no traditional opening chords at the beginning of the first movement, only a quiet [...]

Wedding Steel Band Hire Wedding Steel Band Hire We at Steelasophical Steel Band & Ambience Music Dj had a great time performing at Amy's wedding drinks reception following her wedding ceremony. Initially we were set up outside in the courtyard. The weather threatened to rain all morning but we took the risk of setting up outside as we knew that would be the best location to create the best atmosphere. But as feared, no more than 20mins in t the reception, the heavens opened and the rains came The guests were wonderful. A few of the guys came over an offered to help carry some of our equipment indoors, and within 10 mins we were relocated and the music started up again. There was no let-up, the musical atmosphere was reclaimed and everyone had a great time. See below the amazing pictures and feedback from the bride Amy. This is very much the typical reaction we receive from couples and guests and a gentle reminder why we love so much what we do and how we do it.

150 Best First Dance Songs

April 26th, 2022|0 Comments

150 Best First Dance Songs 150 Best First Dance Songs Steelasophical Steel Band Dj Facebook How to Choose Your First Dance Song Making your first dance song choice can be challenging, especially where both partners have differencial likes in music genre, style, tempo etc. You could have different ideas about whether your first song should be slow or up-tempo. One of you may well be adamant about having a song that holds special memories from family or childhood, so it could really be a minefield. Out of all the music played, the first dance will define the tone of your day, whether cheesy, tender, romantic,  moment; for others, a carefully choreographed routine your guests would not be expecting or a short and sweet rendition closely follwed by the 2nd and 3rd dance with close family and friends joining you. You will be kicking off the wedding evening party mood! You will never forget your first dance moment. Among those cherished occasions in your life that’ll you’ll look back on, your first time dance together as a married couple will be one of the most iconinc & memorable. Typical favs include: I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing – Aerosmith The Luckiest – Ben Folds Wherever You Will Go – Charlene Soraia A Thousand Years – Christina Perri Stand By Me – Ben E. King The following 150 first dance songs are pretty much romantic, but the right song will be the one with personal meaning for the two of you that speaks to the heart of your relationship. While you’ll find lots of brilliant choices among our best wedding songs, we’ve handpicked here the songs that we think are perfect first dance songs.

Steel Pan Double Tenor Double Seconds
Steelband Magazine

Steelband Magazine

Double Tenor

The Double Tenor, which was invented by Bertie Marshall, uses 2 drums and has a pitch range from F3 to B5 or up to two octaves and an augmented 4th from F below middle C. These steel pans have a distinctively pleasant sound, which makes them very appealing to pan soloists. The double tenor can be used to carry the melody, a harmonic voice, for counter melodies or for chords.In the latest standardised version of the double tenor steel drums,the Eb note is on the left hand pan and the F# is on the right hand pan. In an earlier version of this pan, the Eb is on the right hand pan and there was no F#3. So you went from F3 to F#4 to G3 and up, which broke the continuity of the range. There is even a double tenor which has the lowest F# (F#3) on the left and the other F#’s on the right, with the Eb also on the right. So, if you decide to play this pan you must be mindful of its variations. The arrangement of the notes on the double tenor is not symmetrical, which makes it one of the more difficult instruments to master.

The Double Second Pan

This steel pan was invented by Sonny Roach and uses two drums, each of which carries the notes of a whole-tone scale, making it a very symmetrical steel pan. Its notes range from F# below middle C (F#3) up to C#6, which is two octaves above middle C. Because of the symmetry of this pan, the successive notes of the Chromatic Scale alternate between the left and right hand pans. For example, F# is on the left, G is on the right, G# is on the left, and so on…

Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor

May 16th, 2022|Comments Off on Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor

Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor Steelasophical YouTube Channel Contact Steelasophical Steelasophical Price List Mozart Symphony No 40 In G Minor Composed 1788. note by James Keays Mozart’s last three symphonies come from the extraordinarily creative summer of 1788. In the space of slightly over six weeks, he composed the Symphony in E-flat, K. 543; the Symphony in G minor, K. 550; and the Symphony in C major, K. 551. The entries in Mozart’s catalog are dated, respectively, June 26, July 25, and August 10. During the 19th century, it was popularly believed that Mozart wrote the works with no specific performance in mind. Furthermore, he supposedly created them out of an inner desire to provide a symphonic last will and testament. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In 1788, he had no reason to assume that these would be his last symphonic works. Had he been able to follow Haydn to London in 1792, as had been planned, he would have most certainly composed at least six more. As for composing them without having a performance in mind, this is also fiction. Mozart simply didn’t work that way. Even a single symphony was too big a work to undertake without the promise of some type of financial gain. Of the three 1788 symphonies, the Symphony in G minor, K. 550 (popularly referred to as No. 40, but probably No. 53), is the most original and has had the greatest influence on future composers. Few works from then 18th century are as intense, chromatic, and unconventional. The choice of key is, in itself, a measure of the work’s profundity. Mozart wrote only three substantial mature works in G minor, a key commonly associated (according to 18th century aesthetic principles) with “lamentation” and “suffering.” There are no traditional opening chords at the beginning of the first movement, only a quiet [...]

The Cello Pan

The Cello Pan uses 3 pans, each of which contains the four notes of a diminished seventh chord. One pan therefore contains the notes C, Eb, Gb and A; another pan contains C#, E, G and Bb; the third pan contains B, D, F and Ab. The range of this pan goes from C3, one octave below middle C to B4 above middle C.

The longer skirt and the minor-third relationship between the neighbouring notes of each pan gives the cello pans a deep mysterious tonal quality. These steel drums perfect for counter melodies and low harmony. The symmetry of these steel drums allows the chromatic scale to be played in a clockwise pattern between the three pans. Note that the placement of the pans and even the arrangement of the notes within the pans can vary according to the style of the cello pan
