  • Want live streaming and video hosting, your way? Streamhoster is hands-down the best-of-breed livestream hosting service available in 2020! +

    The live streaming service STREAMHOSTER was suggested to me by Webmaster Extraordinaire Patrick Doyle, The Nashville Webmaster as the best option for my new regular Sunday evening live stream events. After launching this new concert series from my website, I was blown away by the quality, professionalism, and technical support offered by this top-flight service. As you can see by the archived videos playlist on this website's LiveStream page the results have been spectacular. Michael Barsoumian, the President of Streamhoster, went above and beyond the call of duty in helping me with my unique configuration that required a hardware encoder and mobile hotspot to provide the broadcast. By tweaking the specs and testing them over and over, he found the balance between a reliable stream with my limited internet bandwidth and the best audio and video quality possible. I could not be happier with the live stream and extremely grateful Read More
  • My Personal (Poetic) Birthday Tribute to Music Master Paragon George Russell +

    If George Russell were gracing us today here on Earth with his presence on June 23, 2020, we would be joining in celebration of his 97th birthday. In his honor, this blog post pays reverence to a true human being, a vertical man, an innovator, composer, band-leader, music educator and theoritician who devoted his life's work to sharing the deepest insights into what the music itself is telling us about its own self-organization and unity, entitled "George Russell's Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization - the art and science of tonal gravity." First, a preface with two quotes: “Though his pieces were direct offshoots of his Lydian theories, there is nothing the slightest bit doctrinaire about them…It is a mystery why Russell’s work has not become a standard part of the jazz canon, or why his works have not been rediscovered by the Jazz repertory movement.” - written by National Jazz Museum Read More
  • You could be a big step closer to becoming a 2020 best-rated online music teacher by using this free, powerful, web-based rhythmic training program called "Groove Scribe” +

    No matter which musical instrument you teach to your online music lesson students, most teachers giving online music lessons agree it can be a real challenge to find interesting and innovative ways to enhance your curriculum with the all-important subject of rhythmic training. Both you and your online music students will love meeting the challenge with the help of Groove Scribe! Rhythmic training has always been at the forefront of what I share with my music students because the synergy of listening and timing are at the core of musicality and music making. I played drums and orchestral percussion while growing up, from Elementary school, Middle School, High School and pre-Conservatory College. That intense level of rhythmic training gave me very deep insight into understanding and teaching rhythm to my students.   With my live, interactive, personalized one-on-one private music lessons that I provide around the world online using video Read More

A free online Whiteboard can come in very handy when you need to write or draw a musical example from scratch during an online, interactive live private music lesson

For those private music lesson teachers that are unfamiliar with what an online whiteboard is and how it can be useful to you, it is simply a blank white space with annotation tools for text, lines and shapes that allows you to write and draw your content in real-time for your students while screen sharing.

After checking out the top five online whiteboards, I settled on using AWW Whiteboard and have been very happy with it. I find it useful and most helpful when I’m trying to illustrate harmonic analysis, custom charts, chord changes during the lesson.

 

I use the Basic version, which is free and requires no registration. It is perfect for on the spot whiteboarding notes. The basic version can be found at this link:

AWW whiteboard app web

I just open that page in my browser tab and start whiteboarding with the Basic tools on hand. It works great and allows me to draw almost anything I want with my Wacom tablet pen.

 

For those online music teachers who want the full-featured version, you can purchase the Premium program. You can sign up for a 14-day free trial. After that there is a monthly fee. You can find out about the robust Premium features at this link:

Here's a link to a video showing how it works with quite a few YouTube videos:
