Music And The Power Of YouTube

Music And The Power Of YouTubeSince its inception in 2005, YouTube has become a force in pop culture and in the world of social media marketing.

Influence Of Music

Music has been around for thousands and thousands of years. Just about everyone has been influenced by music of one type or another at some point in their lives. For a lot of us, music has molded us to be who we are and the way that we think. There are many, many, many types of music from all over the world, and all these types of music has different meanings to all of the people it represents and this to me is the wonder of music.

Music probably started with someone beating on a stone with a stick or the sound of birds (which have always been musical through out time) or maybe even rain, beating down. I’m not sure if anyone really knows the origin of music I’m sure that there are no shortage of theories. Music effects us in many different ways. Some music makes us happy, sad, feel spiritual, celebrate, fall in love and many more emotions the we feel and deal with everyday. In my opinion we must have music to survive because, music is so engrained in our lives. The components of music are so intricate but yet so simple. Basically

Aspiration Music

Listening to music inspires us to see our true aspirations. It brings within us a feeling of gratification. It’s plain to see the rhythms and lyrics in the music influence our emotions. There is one thing for sure. It certainly gives us hope, comfort, pleasure, energy and a mindful of memories.

Imagine waking up in the morning feeling lazy and tired. There is a full day ahead of us with chores and errands to run, or maybe we have to go to work. We all love our cup of coffee of course, but many of us will turn to our music to get us moving. We think to ourselves, “Hmm I’m going to listen to that song that gives me that energized, motivated feeling.” When we hear the music, we get that rushed, powerful feeling. The one that makes us say, “I’m going to do this!” Then we start daydreaming of how our day will be and what we want to see ourselves achieve.

Now some of us will have those days we feel down or sad. So we decide we are going to listen to that song that brings back those old memories. Why? I’m

Drumming Lessons Online

These days you can learn a lot online. From how to bake bread to when to move chilli plants outside. (Those are two things I’ve recently learned) The bread turned out great and I’m looking forward to harvesting my first chilli’s. In this article I’m going to be talking about drumming lessons online. There are many different types from free one off lessons to free courses. Subscription courses as well as one off paid lessons.

Free Lessons

I’m sure you have noticed the amount of free lessons on video sites like Youtube. Some of these are great, some not so much, but they can be a great source of information if you can tell the good from bad. One thing worth realising is the production value of the video doesn’t always relate to the quality of the content. If someone’s playing doesn’t look relaxed or you just don’t like the things the player is doing it’s time to move on.

Free Courses

Some websites offer free drum courses where you can have multiple drum lessons emailed to you. Sometimes these will be one at a time over the course of a few weeks or

A Few Tips Mastering Your Songs

Mastering your mixes

So, you’ve gone through the recording and mixing process, and you’re ready to get your music mastered? Okay, first things first. The main reason why you’re going to apply this to your mix is to have the highest audio quality as possible. In order to acheive this, you must have a professional engineer master your songs with professional equipment in a studio control room. Now, you don’t need to record your songs in a professional studio, but you DO need have them mastered in a professional studio.

Every main stream artist out right now definitely has thier music masteredprofessionally, and that’s what gives it that ‘crisp’ sound. For somebody who views music as more of a hobby than a “career” or goal, then getting your music mastered isn’t neccesarily mandatory… however, it is still recommended. If you are somebody who is looking to take their music to the next level, such as recieving radio play, doing live performances, commercials, etc… then mastering your album/project is imperative. The musician and audience is always delighted to hear music that sounds fanstastic, and mastering your music will give it that little extra boost.

Songwriting Tips

Willy Nelson was once asked “How do you become a great songwriter?” His answer was ”How much hell do you want to go through?”. Though I won’t consider myself in his caliber, well maybe I do, it dosen’t matter. The lesson here is about emotions. All the things you go through in life can be used to write a song.

Many times, you may be in a stressful mood when starting a song, that’s just the way it is. You can go through this hurricane of emotions when starting the song, but like I mentioned and will keep on mentioning, learn the basic rules. Why waste all that energy on a song?, because if you are not following the basics, then you are wasting your time. Don’t try to write a song while driving a car, its dangerous, if you get a idea pull over and write it down.

Songwriting is like a natural drug, when you get on a roll it will pour out of you. There’s nothing better to have a chorus flow out of you, then a first verse. Yes, I said a chorus first thats you core idea, then you can build

Music Making Programs, Things To Consider When Choosing The Right Program For Your Productions

Choosing the right program for your personal DAW could prove to be absolutely outright confusing, especially if you have been searching online for information on which music making programs would be the right fit for your personal production needs.

There’s alot of gibberish on the net that you will soon find concerning which beat makers that you should use; but before we get started with the discussion, I want you to know that the best or right program for you would be the one that gives you the best user experience, and simplifies your work flow. Let’s discuss.

What Makes For A Good Music Making Program?

Two things that you should consider upfront with any software beat making program are what types of sounds are included with the program and the size of the sound library, and also, what are the features of the MIDI editor.

The sound library will be the focal central point of your beat making endeavors, so if you have a crappy sound library or the amount of sounds included is small, you more than likely won’t be able to make any tight beats! Any producer knows that his beats

Can Music Speak?

Most of us have heard the saying that music can speak and even replace words or oral speech. However ,more or less, this statement sounds a little bit hyperbolic, especially if someone is not a musician or has no experience with a musical instrument. But on second thought, while they cannot be compared to words and letters, notes can ,to a certain extent, convey feelings and change the mood of an individual.

To begin with, it is important to mention that music includes various “characteristics” like the melody ,the harmony ,the rhythm, the dynamics etc. All these together contribute to the creation of a piece/song and a change in one of them can completely change the overall result. For example, melodies include different notes played in different octaves. Let’s consider a note to be a letter and then let’s take the word “car”. If we change the final letter to “t” and change the word to cat, it has a different meaning. The same goes for melodies too as a change in one note changes the melody in general. Apart from that, the way we speak and the expression of our face can also alter what we

Music Is Can Be Use As A Therapy

Music is a great help for me because i’m a loner person and i usually get depress with unknown reason. I remember a line from a song that says, “music gives you happiness or sadness, but it also heals your soul”, which is definitely correct.

I love listening to gospel songs, it really gives me enlightenment to go on with the life that i had, I live in a simple life and music is the only thing that gives me inspiration. Everytime I listen to it even how tired my day was, how exhausted i was, and how down I am. Listening to these songs will really ease and gives me power to over come all the things that came my way.

Especially the traumatic patients, we should have known their past . Because giving a wrong music will not help them to cope up on what’s they’ve been through.

Modern Music

We live in a time where the scope of influence that an artist has means absolutely nothing, as the bottom line is always SALES! Led Zeppelin, Depeche Mode, and REM have never had a number one single. Rihanna has had ten. Can you name any of the crap that Rihanna has put out? I can’t even name one of her songs, let alone ten. I can name twenty that Zeppelin did off the top of my head, but what does this all boil down to? I ask myself on a regular basis, “what is the state of modern music?”.

In one sense, you can say that the originality is dying. The decline of radio, sampling, and money hungry record companies are all contributing factors to the death of originality. Because regular radio is on the decline, many artists, (including myself) have been forced to spend more time marketing themselves than being creative with their music. Sampling has also been something that I have vehemently despised since the eighties, unfortunately, it’s only gotten worse, as whole songs have been stolen and “rapped” over. See Kid Rock as an example. The last nail in the coffin of originality would

What Effect Does Music Have On You

Do You Think Music Effects you

I am a huge music fan. I listen to a bit of everything, but there one constant when I listen to music. I know that music effects me! Music can make me happy, sad, excited, pumped, calm, relaxed, sleepy, and emotional.

Types of Music

I think that types of music and different songs effect me differently. When I am trying to focus on athletics I listen to music that gets me going. Sometimes rock, rap, punk, metal, or R&B. There are a ton of genres and it all depends on my mood and if there has been a song that I have heard recently that gets me jacked.

When I am trying to focus like right now while I am writing this my playlist is all Mayday Parade and Jacks Mannequin. These types of pop punk songs soothe me and helps get my creative juices going. They allow me to sing a little, and when I focus on the song things just come to me when I am trying to put my thoughts on paper.

When I do things around the house I enjoy listening to songs
