  • MUSIC COMPOSITION UPDATE: 159 new works for solo piano written and performed in the last 6 months for live stream concerts and recordings +

    I've composed, arranged and performed a total of 159 new original compositions for solo piano during this last six-month period. Scroll down this blog entry to view the database of new pieces created for performance during 21 live stream concerts ("The Listening Experience"), listed by date, concert theme and composition title. Last week's detailed blog article AT THIS LINK tells the story of my 25 consecutive live stream concert events with in-depth information. These compositions are also listed on my Live Stream Page, featured in the song set list for each live stream concert in a gallery of text panels you can scroll through on the bottom of the live stream page. There is no way this level of creativity could have occured without the universal inspiration from George Russell (my composition mentor) and his enduring, prodigious Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization, for which I am eternally grateful.

  • Music Documentary Film Review: "Hearing Is Believing" - Rachel Flowers +

    Although released as a full-length documentary film in 2017, I had not had the opportunity to see this movie until this week. Let me begin by saying that it is a very important film for everyone to enjoy and learn from, especially musicians. The focus is on Rachel Flowers. She is what a real musician looks like - in every way, shape and form. Her essence is one of purity. That's what this film means to me: music is purity. The purity of her soul made me cry tears of joy at the end of the film. She hears a sound in everything and in everyone. The title says it all. More than the familiar motto "seeing is believing," the truth is that "hearing is believing." This is in perfect alignment with my axiom that music is a gift given to all human beings to teach us to become better listeners. Read More

Zoom Q2n-4k Video Audio Webcam USB microphone Review 2020:The ultimate webcam for online music teachers giving live one-on-one private lessons in real-time via video chat!

Want the best of breed for super high quality audio and video quality at a price point of under $250? This hi-def video camera with built-in USB stereo microphone has all the features you'll ever need in a webcam!

 Zoom Q2n4k webcam online lessons front

The Zoom Q2n-4k is advertised as a "handy" video and audio recording/playback device specifically designed with the musician in mind. But the webcam function makes it the perfect webcam for both video and audio whether you're the teacher or student for live private online lessons in real-time via video chat. It was a game-changer for me, and my students love the expanded field-of-vision view that allows them to feel like they are in the room with me, not just focused on my talking head or piano keys.

Here's list of features and some specs that pertain to the webcam usage:

  •           High-quality 150° wide-angle lens (f2.8/15.2 mm)
  •           Built-in X/Y stereo microphones handling sound levels up to 120 dB SPL
  •           Can be used as standalone audio recorder for WAV files up to 24-bit/96 kHz
  •           5 field of view (FOV) settings
  •           Color LCD
  •           Support for three HD video modes: 720p, 1080p and 4K
  •           Stereo input for use with external devices plus support for plug-in power
  •           Headphone/line-level output for fast audio monitoring
  •           USB interface for live streaming and data transfer
  •           Compatible with OBS Open Broadcaster Software, Skype, other streaming apps
  •           USB mic function (with low-latency direct monitoring)
  •           Built-in standard tripod mount

I highly recommend you check this out and get yourself one if and when you're ready to upgrade from your current webcam. If not for the improved audio, at least for the five field-of-view settings that makes your teaching studio look great at the best camera view. It's pretty affordable at $220 and works great. Five star rating!!!!

I bought mine at B&H Photo at this link where they have it in stock as of this writing, whereas most other webcams are on backorder. They also sell all the correct accessories you'll need to add as you use it as a video recorder and playback device:
