UK Passport Service

When you decide to travel across the borders of your country of birth, you need a passport. The difference in passports depends on if you are going abroad to tour or to work. Generally, working passports are valid a time longer than touring passports. When you need a passport you apply for one at your local Home affairs office if there is one in your area. Before you start the application process make sure you have your ID photos ready. You will also need to give your reasons for wanting the passport on the application form you fill in.

The evolution of art

People have always made art. Since the very beginning. Since before we learned how to write, how to speak. We have painted caves eons ago, and we picked up clay and shaped it into characters and objects. Art might be an instinct to human beings the same way it is to bond to each other or fight to death, to search for food or to look for a dry place to sleep at night. Ever since we started developing our brain and became able of representing things that were part of our lives, our feelings and our experiences, we started making art.

It has been a long way since then, and art itself has evolved greatly, becoming more complex as we did. We created cultures that have their very own outlooks on life and their ways or representing reality and the products of our collective imagination. Every society, from the past and the present, can be recognised now by the art they have created. And we can be amazed, and enjoy watching paintings and drawings, listening to music and poetry, reading tales and legends, and beholding the infinity in human creativity. Some people love to appreciate art and engage in cultural journeys, getting to know people through their creations, sharing the human experience and finding new ways to represent it and convey it. That is art. Read More...

Learn to play the authentic music from your era!

Why should you learn to play music?

Who doesn't like any music genre? I dare you find one sigle person who doesn't enjoy at least one type of song, at least the sound of one instrument. It's a fact, we all love music. And we have the pleasure of listening to it thanks to the hard work of musicians and sound technicians who studied hard and practiced every day until they were able to pull off the sounds and melodies that we like to listen to. 

So why shouldn't you become one of them? You sure like some music genre, and you enjoy listening to certain songs. When you work, when you travel, when you are at leisure, when you study or when you gather with your friends, you name it. I can tell you: playing an instrument feels much better than simply listening to someone else do it.  Read More...

Learning To Play Authentic Victorian Piano Music

The music industry in the Victorian era was primarily performed in public places such as saloons. As urban development took over England, most of the famous older music halls were faced out. Unfortunately, these are some of the best locations where people enjoyed classical music. The saloons took over the music scene, offering drinks as the music played.

Despite the loss of the traditional halls, Victorian music was still enjoyed, and newer halls were built to showcase England’s newer music style. Today, classic music is still one of the most popular genres of entertainment, with more and more people expressing interest in learning how to play. Read More...
