Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth:
make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
In November I wrote about the top secret trip that I took, working with a new music brand. Finally, the time has come to spill the beans! A group of music professionals and a few blogging, homeschooling moms were brought together as an advisory council for a new music program, Quaver’s Marvelous World of Music. While Quaver was unknown to us and the public in general, this amazing group of musicians, producers, and technical wizards had been crafting the program for years.
They treated us to a fun getaway weekend in Nashville; picked our brains; and fed us fine Southern cooking at B.B. King’s Blues Club. I consider myself blessed to have been asked to contribute feedback when Quaver reached that point in its development.
I would like to introduce you to Graham Hepburn, the inspiration and embodiment of Quaver itself. Graham is guest posting for me today while I’m at BlissDom.
At the bottom of this post I’ll tell you how you can win a Quaver kit if you’re a BlissDom attendee.
It seems evident to me that life itself is underscored by music. The beat of our days, the pitch of our moods, the rhythm of our families, coming and going, growing and changing. Music is everywhere.
But sometimes, amidst all the noise, we miss the most important notes. Children, especially, forget the songs they once knew and begin to tune out the music around them. They need encouragement to tap into that native talent and truly make a joyful noise . . . for their Creator, for their families, for themselves.
Growing up in England, I studied music and performed on the piano, leading really energizing music workshops in grade schools. Now as Quaver I own an imaginative Music Shop where I have all the instruments and equipment to help kids discover and love music.
There is nothing more exciting to me than bringing that love of music to life in children. This is what I was made to do: to help them tune their creative antennae to the station they were meant to hear, to give them the tools and understanding they need to truly make a joyful noise in their everyday lives.
I believe music can transform lives and ignite children’s imaginations for success in all their endeavors. It all starts with just one note, one beat, one very joyful noise! I hope you’ll encourage your kids to let their imaginations’ soar through the wonderful world of music!
