Arts professional development grants

In case you’re new to Soundfly, every one of our mentored online courses comes with ongoing 1-on-1 guidance and feedback on your work from a professional musician, composer, producer, singing actor, or industry insider working in the field. It’s like having a personal trainer, but for music! As you make your way through the high-quality, in-depth course materials, your Soundfly Mentor will help you work out your musical goals and keep you on pace to reaching them, every step of the way.

Now that you’ve got a nice, loud vocal sitting right up in your face, it’s time to add a little space with reverb and delay. Stereo effects are great for creating width, while mono effects work better for pushing the vocal back in the mix and adding depth.

In this piece, harmony and melody are very limited. Harmony is non-existent (if considered as the use of at least three different pitches at the same time) and melody is reduced to one single note, with the only possible combinations resulting in unisons and octaves.

Curious about putting your musical skills to work? Here’s a bit of information about each level of education and what is required of you as a teacher/tutor.

True. So I guess I’m not so much “understanding” the piece as I am creating a different piece of music using the same pitches and durations, but with a different rhythmic feel (one that I like better — sorry, Debussy).

Although we’ve been happy with our lender (and grateful to be in our house), in hindsight the process may have gone smoother had we gone to one of the Music Row banks. We were also thrown for a loop every time they asked for more documentation, or more details, or letters from our bosses.

Focus: Finish this track, and begin to develop a live performance setup around it.

If you want to rock out this Saturday, check out Vagabon at the Silent Barn. They’re opening for Aye Nako (an incredible pop-punk band, releasing their new album), hopefully playing some tunes off of their 2014 release Persian Garden. Laetitia Tamko’s ragged vocals chase distorted lead guitar lines to devastating and gorgeous effect.

Who knew treadmills could be so fun? This classic, viral music video features such a simple yet quirky concept, but with choreography that blows the mind apart. After 17 attempts, OK Go was finally able to capture a single, continuous shot of the entire impressive choreographed performance. Unlike some of the other videos here, this doesn’t have any deep, significant relevance to the song’s lyrics, but… who cares!

Prices will vary depending on which company you work with, but you can make cassettes as low as $1-2 and you can also buy them in small runs. So instead of spending thousands on one album’s production and having tons of CDs lying around for the next 2 years waiting to be sold or given away, you can make as many or as few cassettes as you want.

Every time the cycle repeats, that low E root is right there to support that downbeat. Notice that it doesn’t have to hit every downbeat of the pattern, but it must hit on that repeated downbeat at the start of the cycle. Funky bass lines emphasize beat one and lay a solid rhythmic foundation.

I would like to ask if you are available to play a show with [your band’s name] on [date] at [proposed venue options]. We can talk about a door split or guarantee once you check if you’re free,

Another simple-to-remember example is the nursery rhyme, “Three Blind Mice.” The first two notes in the melody are what you’ll want to focus on, at 0:00.
