Tuition : Composing and arranging lessons

ashsoutham writes"My name is Ashleigh Southam and I'm a composer and arranger.  I am offering my knowledge to people interested in learning the skill of composition and arranging. 

If you're a beginner and want to get into writing your own material or want to be able to dish out parts to the other band members, you can benefit greatly from lessons.

I have often talked to a lot of musicians who struggle to find ways to create new sounds and differences within a set or a rehearsal situation.  A lot of song writers also find it hard to get variety in their songwriting and can end up using the same old techniques.  This leads to a bunch of songs all sounding the same.  These are common problems and with the right guidance are easy to solve.

I teach out of my small studio set up in Coburg.  Please contact me if you have any questions or want to set up a complimentary meet and greet.
Cheers,

Ash: 0420 502 523

News : Getting Into The Recording Studio | Stomp! Studios Pakenham

MICKoWAR writes"

Music is What Matters

A good number of musicians recognize that time spent in the recording studio is a big determent of future success. Many musicians place strong emphasis on their music itself, although promotion and performance quality are also important. The right promotion decisions usually make a big difference in how many people will get to hear a new act's music. Making a band stand out from the rest may take some creative brainstorming, but this planning is necessary due to the competitive nature of the music business. Good demo tracks, band websites, and live performances also play a role in building a loyal fan following. Websites in particular can bring a band's finished tracks to as many new listeners as possible.  

High Quality Product Creation

Musical talent is only one part of a high quality product, and presentation is another key factor. Studio quality demo recordings are generally preferred over home recordings despite improvements in technology. A recording session with professional sound engineers can make a large difference in the final product's sound quality.

On-Stage Performances

Professional musicians and recording engineers are able to separate band performances from their presentations, although listeners need to perceive the two as one and the same. A metal band can have a great sound, but their performance can fall flat on a poorly-designed stage. Factors that can improve this presentation usually include stage lighting, band photography, and active stage presence. 

Band Merchandise

Selling band merch is a common and effective way to bring in the needed income for a newer band in the beginning. Time spent practicing in rehearsal studios Melbourne only pays off for bands who are able to maximize their earning power. Band posters and CDs are popular sellers at live performances, and these also need some planning in order to sell well. CD packaging and artwork are initial investments, though many bands find the expense worth the returns. A good deal of music tracks are now sold through digital downloading, although many people still like to take home a physical product such as a music CD. 

Pulling it All Together

The work that a band accomplishes in the recording studio is often a catalyst for the success to follow. Developing a catchy sound is only the first part, and promotion is required to get the word out about it. Time spent in a rehearsal studio can be expensive by the hour, but many bands consider this investment another requirement for bringing in a solid fan base. Live gigs present the best opportunities for band photography and for selling merchandise. A great presentation and great music stand the best chances of bringing a new band success in the music industry.

Accounting & Business Management : Small Business Online Marketing | NetBlots Web & Marketing Solutions

MICKoWAR writes"

While it may seem like a huge task to start a new website, if you know some tips you will be able to easily get started in your small business online marketing venture. There are four points that must be considered in order to determine how to get the most from your new website. These things include purpose, content, useability and design.

Purpose

The first thing that you should consider whenever you start a new website is the website's purpose. This is because a personal website will be different from a business one. You also need to consider your goals. All of these considerations will make it easier for you to be able to create relevant content and drive traffic to your website.

Content

Both the written and the visual content will determine whether or not your clients follow through with the desired action. For this reason, it is important to make sure that your content actually appeals to your market. The most difficult place for this is your home page because you only have 10 seconds to draw visitors into the rest of your website. So, you don't want to brag or put lots of information here. Instead, speak to your visitors' needs and wants while taking SEO into consideration.

Useability

Your new website needs to be easy to use, load fast and be interactive too. Otherwise your potential clients will simply move on to your competitors. For this reason, you will want to limit file size and make menus easy to navigate.

Design

Make sure to use a modern, attractive design. It should look professional and remain up-to-date. You also want to have a light colored background with darker colored text. This is where a professional designer will be helpful. 

Once you know the importance of these things you will need to decide how to make everything work together for you. Your budget will play an important role here. Regardless of your budget though, you never want to put forth a bad website as this could cause a lot of harm to your business.

Professional web design for small business online marketing can cost anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. There are several factors that must be considered here. However, in order for your website to be successful it will need to constantly be updated. Planning for this will be the key to your small business online marketing success.
