Their music has been used in commercials, video games, and television show trailers, and they have won multiple award nominations. And now, following a frantic two-year tour, rockers 30 Seconds to Mars are about to break the Guinness World Record for the Most Shows Performed in One Album Cycle. The tour followed their 2009 album “This Is War,” and their 300th performance, on December 7th of this year, will set a global record. The band has enjoyed so much success thus far, it’s only natural that they achieve this record!In honor of this achievement, we’re looking at some additional music-related Guinness World Records. Here are a few of our favorites:

Most piano key hits in one minute:

Bal√°zs Havasi (Hungary) achieved the most piano key hits in one minute (498) during the Symphonic Red Concert Show at the Music Academy in Budapest, Hungary, on November 29, 2009. Madonna’s eighth number-one music video, “Sticky & Sweet Tour,” premiered on the US Music Video chart on April 24, 2010. No popular music artist has had more.

Most live concerts in 24 hours:

The most live performances performed in 24 hours in various venues is seven. Jay-Z’s “The Hangar Tour” took place in seven different cities to promote the release of his new album ‘Kingdom Come’ (2006, Universal Music) from 7 a.m. on November 18 until 1:15 a.m. on November 19. The concerts were held in the following order: Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. Most guitar strings have changed. Glenn Haworth (Australia) set the record for re-stringing 30 guitars in one hour on March 15, 2009, at Haworth’s Shellharbour Music Centre in Albion Park Rail, Australia.

Longest career as a music teacher

Charles Wright (born 24 May 1912 in the United States) established the Guinness record for the longest working career as a music teacher when he began teaching piano privately and professionally in 1931. He continued to do so for the next 76 years, passing away on July 19, 2007, at the age of 95 years and 56 days. On October 24, 2009, Sweet Adelines International hosted the largest singing lesson ever, with 6,651 participants at the Sommet Center in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

Largest Kazoo Ensemble:

On March 14, 2011, an audience of 5,190 classical music fans at the “Big Red Nose Show” at the Royal Albert Hall in London, UK, formed a kazoo ensemble to commemorate Red Nose Day. The BBC Concert Orchestra, led by comedian Sue Perkins, hummed along to Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries and Eric Coates’ Dambusters March. Katie Derham and Basil Brush from BBC Radio 3 hosted the event. These are just a few of the amazing musical performances that have earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records, and we can only imagine what incredible feats may be created next. Why not dream large, ambitious artists? Maybe you

Lady Gaga and other pop stars are now dominating music news headlines. Many children can recite the lyrics to nearly any Top 40 song (or rap like Nicki Minaj, as proved by this viral video), yet they have no knowledge of Mozart. Dozens of studies have found that playing classical music with children enhances spatial reasoning and critical thinking skills. So, how can we teach children to classical music? The Parents’ Choice Foundation website contains a range of fantastic options. Here are a couple we enjoyed:

If you appreciate classical music, your child will probably enjoy it as well. If you don’t know many songs, you may need to listen to find some to contribute. To get started, there are various collections of exceptional hits that likely include music you’ve heard previously. When performing the classics, mix in some pop, rock, blues, country, R&B, jazz, or whatever music you prefer. Kids don’t need their music classified for them. If they are exposed to a variety of styles, their musical preferences will be diverse.

Identify Instruments

Many composers have chosen instruments that children will enjoy learning and identifying. In “The Four Seasons,” Vivaldi used a viola to represent a barking dog, whereas in “Peter and the Wolf,” Prokofiev utilized instruments to represent plot characters: an oboe represents a duck, a clarinet a cat, a flute a bird, and French horns a scary wolf. Once you and your children have identified these instruments, search for images of them, try to find them in other works, and talk about how they sound and what emotions they elicit. Plan to go to a performance hall to see and hear the instruments “in person.”

Many pop songs become popular simply because people hear them repeatedly. The same goes with classics. The more you play with them, the more comfy they get. Your children are likely to enjoy the repeated tunes more and appreciate them in new ways as they continue to listen. When the legendary cellist Pablo Casals was in his nineties, he disclosed that for eighty years, he had performed the same Bach song every morning. He added,

These are good suggestions for parents and instructors to ensure that children are exposed to a variety of music genres. Save yourself from hearing the latest pop tune on repeat while simultaneously boosting your child’s musical knowledge; that sounds like a win-win to us! When they’re ready, seek out a music teacher who specializes in children’s music lessons to gain even more benefits. (Need help locating a teacher?

Do not abuse your speaking voice. “Most singers have been educated to sing for many years. They understand vocal posture, technique, and how to relax their voice while relying on their breath support. However, after leaving the stage, their speaking posture deteriorates because they no longer think about it. They are not taught to speak well, but to sing well. Even the most professional vocalist sings only around 1% of the time. Poor speaking posture will come up with you in the end, therefore use proper voice technique even when speaking.”
