About this title


Play naturally, play simply and play powerfully are the three declarations that summarize The Gift of Healing Modes music book. It's impressive what can be done with only seven notes in a scale. But, far beyond this is the way each scale, or mode, is distinguished from the next, conceptually, structurally and audibly. Each mode has its own relative mood quality. It's how the music makes you feel, and where it takes you that counts, says author Stella Benson. She writes, Although it may seem simple to you, if you can hear a mode and know which mode is sounding, without looking at the music, then is when you have mastered the modes. Stella Benson connects the science with her assertions to support why pure intervals, harmonic series, Natures Chord, and the human voice frequency range are critical, and perhaps overlooked, aspects of therapeutic music. The explanations, instructions, and music in this 161-page book will allow all levels of musicians to enter the world of healing music, including 77 modal scores and a section on modal improvisation. Of particular interest are explanations of how to heighten or lesson the modal character and quality of any given mode, strengthening or weakening the ambience.
