~~New Contemporary Music~~
Listening to music carefully is vital if you are ever going to truly appreciate the unique rhythms and harmonies that make up the colourful sound palette that is collectively called music. http://streaming.radio.co/sbbdfc8d3d/listen
Listening is a crucial part of our daily life. If we listen carefully to instructions concerning whatever has to be done then we are guaranteeing at least some amount of success in our lives. Should we not understand or appreciate the totality of the instructions then it is important that we ask questions about the problem concerned. When we ask the questions, even if we have to ask them many times, it is so important that we listen carefully to the answers and so interpret them correctly. As it is with music and every day problems that arise so it is most important with matters of the spirit.
We cannot just listen to preachers, spiritual leaders, our family and friends and just assume that all they say about spiritual matters are correct. we must always refer and base our understanding, rather than just our own opinions, on the eternal Word of God, known as the Bible; this word simply means the book .
What God has said in His Word in the Old Testament and particularly, in the New Testament, must be taken on board by our minds and spirit. The Holy Spirit must be given free rein to interpret the scriptures for us.The scriptures are not for private interpretation but as the Holy Spirit reveals the will of God for our lives.
Following on from reading and meditating on God's Word it is absolutely essential that you listen carefully to what the holy Spirit tells you to do. then you must be obedient and apply the wisdom and knowledge given and put it in to direct action in your own life. Further -more you will bring honour and glory to the Father and be a wonderful help and blessing to your own family and friends with whom you come in contact.
A suggestion for increased help in this regard would be to commence in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Well that is it for now folks! Keep on listening and enjoying both the music and God's Word

A weekly blog by John Macdonald
Welcome to the first blog of New Contemporary Music.
I first worked as a "office slave" then as a diehard in an office in Sydney. From then i studied for my teaching diploma and became a primary teacher for many years. I was then promoted to the position of a deputy principal.
Later on I became a principal of two schools in Western Australia.
I attended as an out student at Sydney Conservatorium of Music. In my early years. I studied piano, harmony and composition as well as singing.
During this period I successfully conducted school choirs.I also sat as a theory student for an AMEB examination. Previously I had studied music theory at high school and enjoyed singing in several choirs.
My first undertaking in composition were pieces of music began in the 1950's while a fairly young student at school. I first began taking piano lessons in 1954 and then in 1959 dad bought me a German piano and then in 1960 dad bought me a Verdik tape recorder.
Since that time I have composed many hundreds of pieces of original music, first for the piano and now on the keyboard. Tracks today are often accompanied by many different instruments and orchestral effects.
I first listened to the classics with my father on the radio. Dad would tune into the Saturday night concerts after i had had a bath in a bathtub along or after my brother. it was here that I first learnt about Beethoven, Handel, Mozart, Chopin and many of the other greats of classical music.
Further on my musical experiences were broadened through dad taking us to concerts to hear famous pianists of the day. This was further developed by listening to the radio followed by television and in more recent times the internet.
Lately i have been involved in recording and editing my musical compositions.
My favourite genres for composition are classical. light classical, easy listening, Celtic, and worship music. i have performed as a baritone/bass in the choir section of Handel's Messiah and been enthralled by many marvellous orchestral renditions of well known music such as Beethoven Symphonies in concert halls in Australia.
I thank God for being able to appreciate such a variety and wealth of music as well as being able to compose and perform such wonderful music.
Bye for now,
