Noise cancellation in web cams is flagged as being a great feature but does it give you, the musician, the sound results you want when live streaming your performance or teaching? 'Noise Cancellation - Help or Hinderance' - Episode 28 of Success Beyond The Score
Carlene was one of the people who attended our Cafemnee Online Worshop during the months of April and May this year. She shared with us some of her impressions, that we invite you to read so you can have a good idea of what to expect from our projects and how what we do could help you out in your path to a successful career in music.
Gunhild Carling is a Swedish jazz performer who seems to be a master in every instrument you need to know for the genre. Even beyond that, she is able to bring unexpected twists to it, causing delight and surprise alike. Here, for example, she rocks a swing tune using... bagpipes?!
As it was mentioned on the last episode, monetising your online activity requires effort. You must put in the work to position yourself, make contacts and generate opportunities. That might hold you back when thinking on give it a try, but don't give up just yet: here are five reasons why monetising your music online is worth it.
We had a total of four sessions in our first online Cafemnee workshop. It was quite a new experience for everybody, and we are glad to say all the attendants and instructors tackled the challenge with enthusiasm and confidence, resulting in a great learning process and a lot of fun!
The world swept the rug from under our feet but we adapted, and 'Pleasing Your Audience' quickly transformed into Cafemnee Online, an experience that closes this Saturday with a bang: the Open Mic Showcase, virtual edition! It has been an exciting opportunity to stay connected and explore new ways of communicating and collaborating. We are as happy as our attendants, to be honest!
What started as a one-day workshop has become a weekly online meeting of a thriving community. The wonderful session on improvisation that we had on April 11th was so successful that we decided to make a part 2 this Satuday 18th April, extending the live online activities until April 25th. This means that you can still join the live programme!
We are still receiving new attendants for our online workshop, as the first session was recorded and posted on our learning platform, meaning that newcomers will be able to catch up no problem. Sign up today!
We were due to run 'Pleasing Your Audience' on the 4th April in Erdington, Birmingham but we'll be running it over the Internet on the 4th April, instead so you can participate and communicate with each other from the comfort of your arm chair!
You are a good interpreter. You are passionate about music and nothing would make you happier than share it live, but you don't know how to approach your audience. Will they like the songs that you chose for them? Will they engage with you in a positive way? What will you do if you commit a mistake in your interpretation, or if someone rudely answers their phone in the middle of your performance? Join our workshop to find out!
