    It is with great pleasure that I'm happy to share with my fans, YouTube viewers, live stream concert audience, my online students and all visitors to my official website that some of my original music for solo piano is now streaming on SoundCloud Pro. The SoundCloud Pro platform offers a wide range of very useful features that give the creative musical artist a platform to reach a global audience. With my new membership and uploads on SoundCloud Pro, I can upload unlimited hours of any type of audio in high-quality WAV file format. It allows me to distribute and monetize with their Repost service for no extra cost.

  • FILEMAIL REVIEW 2020: the fastest file transfer cloud service I've found, and the perfect choice for musicians and music educators who need to send and receive large audio and video files of any size +

    After extensive research and comparison shopping the major online companies that allow people to upload and download huge files, I've come to the firm conclusion that FileMail is the best for many reasons, especially because it has no limit on file size (even the most basic free version) and has a solid desktop utility for off-line uploads with speeds up to 20 times faster than other web browser transfer sites. Teaching online, creating music videos and posting WAV files requires the sharing of very large files. After many months of use, I'm sold on Filemail. To put it simply, Filemail works perfectly with all the features a musician and music educator would ever need. The interface is smooth, easy and straight-ahead. I've never had any hassles or failed uploads when starting out with their free version which was robust enough to keep me going for all of my largest file Read More

Chordie App Review 2020: The single most effective software tool for one-on-one, live, interactive private piano lessons online that I use everyday!

Of the many awesome software tools to help students connect musically with what I'm teaching during online piano lessons is the software program "Chordie App" by Makat Music.

 

The Chordie App is truly state-of-the-art online piano lessons software because it is developed by accomplished and experienced professional musician Charles Schiermeyer for his California-based company "Makat Music," and is available for both Mac OSX and Windows (version 7 through 10). It stands out as well-designed and useful in a real-time setting for private piano lessons. It is the brainchild of an accomplished musician who understands music theory and advanced harmonic analysis.

Charles brings a wealth of musical experience to this program from his impressive list of credentials that include his work as a teacher, composer and performer, having earned a Bachelors and Masters degree in Composition from Manhattan School of Music. He plays all saxophones, piano, flute, clarinet, guitar, and some trumpet. What he's best known for is his amazing talent at crafting amazingly inspired and complex horn and string arrangements. He's been nominated three times for his horn and string arrangements on three gospel albums: Amazing [Live] by Ricky Dillard, Vintage Worship by Anita Wilson, and Sunday Song by Anita Wilson.

With all this in-depth musical experience, it's no wonder why this program is so functional, especially for live, interactive, real-time, one-on-one, personalized online instruction.

You simply connect your MIDI keyboard (hopefully a nice sounding digital piano like I use) to your desktop computer MIDI/Audio interface. Any simple MIDI or USB interface between your digital piano and your device will do. Launch Chordie, and it shows you the notes you play on the Grand Staff along with keys on an 88 key on-screen piano keyboard. The program does a very effective job with harmonic analysis to display the name of the chord you're playing as well as some alternatives. Here's a screenshot that:

And an excellent quote from the ChordieApp homepage:

"Chordie App is designed for musicians, teachers, producers, or anyone who works in music. It’s designed to make the arduous task of learning or teaching chord names and how to read sheet music extremely easy. No longer will the secrets of extended harmony be relegated to the classroom in the college theory programs. Teach yourself!! Whatever you throw at Chordie App, it’ll tell you exactly what it is, and make it extremely easy to explain it to everyone else!"

There are quite a few musicians who use Chordie App in their YouTube video recorded instructional videos. These are two of the good ones:
