Eastern Hillsborough Community Band Rehearsals

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

Eastern Hillsborough Community BandMusic Showcase is proud to host rehearsals of the Eastern Hillsborough Community Band in our auditorium. Their mission is to provide an opportunity for musicians of all ages and skill levels to perform with a concert band and to foster the development of musicians who wish to make a cultural contribution to their community.

“I wanted to personally thank you for the use of your auditorium.  It has always been a dream of mine to start a Community band where I lived.  I hope we can give your teachers, students, parents and the community an opportunity to play with EHCB.  We have a great group of musicians with many skill levels.  The most important thing is that we all love to play music and have fun doing it.  Chris Dutton has been very instrumental in promoting Music Showcase to EHCB. Thank you again for the opportunity to play at Music Showcase and for your continued support and sponsorship.” – Kim McCullers, president of EHCB

Music Does Your Body Good

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

By Debbie Evans

Can music make you feel better or even improve your health? Research shows that music has a profound effect on our minds and bodies. There’s even a healthcare field known as Music Therapy, which uses music to heal. Medical professionals say music therapy benefits cancer patients and children with ADD. It also helps with pain management, to help ward off depression, to promote movement, to calm patients, and to ease muscle tension, just to name a few.

So, what does the research show? Music has a strong beat that stimulates our brain waves so it affects our breathing and heart rate. This can mean slower music brings slower breathing, slower heart rate, and an activation of the relaxation response. So, using music as part of a patient’s therapy can help counteract or prevent the damaging effects of chronic stress and can bring a more positive state of mind, helping to keep depression and anxiety at bay. Music has also been found to lower blood pressure, boost immunity, ease muscle tension, and more.

So, if music does your body good, then why not learn how to play a musical instrument? At Music Showcase, at 402 Oakfield Drive in Brandon, there are more than 50 teachers providing instruction in piano, guitar, drums, band or orchestral instruments, and voice. Lessons are offered Monday through Saturday all year for all ages from beginners to advanced students. So, what are you waiting for? Sign up now at
