  • "SoundCloud Pro" Review 2020: MY RECENT SOLO PIANO RECORDINGS ARE NOW STREAMING MUSIC ON SOUNDCLOUD PRO PLATFORM +

    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

AWW Whiteboard Review 2020: 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:

Get yourself a drawing device like a Wacom Tablet (which I will feature in an upcoming Blog post) and you'll find this Whiteboard simple and effective to help your students during the online private lesson.
