Entertaining Angels…

MMS-Christmas Cheer


Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” -Hebrews 13.2

Those who carry the blessing of music find themselves entertaining strangers on a daily basis.  We travel to perform in other cities, states, countries. We perform for strangers, people we have never met or may never meet again. We entertain strangers when they listen to our music on myspace.com or watch us on youtube.com. We bare our hearts and inner most feelings to strangers through our music.

In many ways, we spread our blessings in etherial ways. We have the ability to touch hearts and souls by the simple construction of vibrations and words.  I’ve asked fans what attracted them to one band or another.  Many times they reply with one word, “Vibe…” and that pretty much says it all.

As performers, we never know exactly who is standing in that crowd, who is parked at the bar or who is sitting at that table right up front.  If you don’t recognize a face, but there’s something familiar about the being wearing it, you may have encountered an angel.  If you’ve experienced writers block and suddenly are deluged with ideas, an angel just may be whispering in your ear.  If you’ve lost touch with yourself, your family or your loved one while persuing your music dreams, and then experienced a sweet homecoming, angels may have kept those home fires burning.

The angel Gabriel announced the good news to Elizabeth and Mary of the birth of their sons. Some have theorized Gabriel communicated the specifics of the ark to Noah and was the voice of the burning bush in the Old Testament. Gabriel is a prime messenger and a patron of those who communicate.  Be aware of the angelic realm as you create and perform.

The Stringed family of instruments….

The stringed family is one of the most beautiful of instruments. Since there is no “breathing” involved, and not a percussive instrument, like the piano and drums, music can seem to continue forever! Unfortunately the schools don’t always offer stringed instruments in the school band, but we are proud to offer some of the finest musicians and instructors on our staff. Melody Music Studios is affiliated with a company that offers instrument rentals and purchases (click to download the form) at affordable rates. A beginner can start out renting for about $20/month, so any one can afford it! And most of what you pay in rent can go towards buying an instrument anytime you wish. For the younger student, he or she will need a smaller size instrument, so renting is the best way to start, where the instrument can be returned for the next size up when the student outgrows his/her size.
