Nominations wanted for PG Music's "Best Music Teachers on YouTube" awards....

Hi all,

Many of the PGMusic forum members here have benefited from the many teachers with free lessons available on youtube.com

So we've decided to have an awards for the best music teachers on youtube. These would be music teachers that have helped you in learning an instrument or genre of music.

Please nominate as many teachers as you'd like. With each nominee, list

- Name and youtube username
- instrument (e.g. guitar)
- genre (e.g. jazz beginner guitar)
- comments (optional) (e.g. great teacher for explaining improvisation, and how scales are related to chords in the key)

=============

When we get the nominations, we will review them and notify the teachers of the award. Other than recognition, if they want, they will get a free version of Band-in-a-Box Everything Pak on HardDrive

Any nominations are OK, from the 'unknown' to 'famous', as long as they are good teachers that have helped you learn to play your instrument via free youtube lessons.
Peter

Willie Thomas' "Jazz Everyone"

http://www.youtube.com/user/JazzEveryone


From near zero to bebopper in one of the most efficient methods I've seen.

He uses Jamie Aebersold backing tracks, I'd LOVE to get him into Band in a Box, because I think he'd love it too!

Hi Peter,

I'd like to nominate ROG (PG Music Forum name). His homepage is at ...

http://www.music-prof.co.uk/

He's also set up a Youtube channel with free guitar tutorials at ...

ROG's Youtube Channel

ROG's expertise on Power Tracks has made him a valuable member of the PG Music forums. He and the young people he works with in England have contributed significantly to the User Showcase over the time he's been around but, because the work is created using Power Tracks and live/studio instruments, and not BIAB/RB, ROG hasn't been eligible for User Showcase Awards.

If ROG fits the criteria that you are using to assess these teacher awards, it would be great if he could be included in the mix for consideration.

Kind regards,
Noel

P.S. I've even started working my way through his tutorials. I've had a guitar sitting here for a few years but never got too far past the C chord!

For Jazz Pianists

Dave Frank, NYC Pianist, would get my ultimate reward.

Most of his Master Class teachings are available for FREE.

Top. Notch. Stuff.

From beginning blues right on through to Bebop, Modern Jazz, plus some in depth explanations on the things that most find hard to come by, how to play outside with easy formulas, how to play the way Chic Corea improvises, or Charles Ives, or Oscar Peterson, and more, each one detailing in a very simple methodology of the "howto" - within a short time the aspiring jazz pianist should not only expand their capabilities exponentiatlly, if you internalize this stuff you may find that you will start to "think" like the target player as well.

Hey, Dave Frank studied under the great Lenny Tristano.

http://www.davefrankjazz.com/

A lot of us paid good money and time attending university, music school or private instruction to get a lot less than Dave is teaching here.

All you have to do is watch his videos, well, to start.

Then get busy.

I'd also like to nominate Steve Seskin for his teaching of all aspects of songwriting.


His personal homepage is at ...


Steve is a fantastic musician, and educator. He's had seven number one hits (including "Grown Men Don't Cry", "Don't Laugh At Me") and is highly respected by his colleagues. In addition, he travels the US with an anti-bullying program for school children and uses music and songwriting as his tools of instruction. He's an incredible, talented man.

Regards,
Noel

I'd like to suggest Justin for guitar lessons, found on YouTube at:
http://www.youtube.com/user/JustinSandercoe

He also has a web site that covers all of guitar teachings (much more than on YouTube). Free of ads, no sign-in, and... no membership required, he "really" goes into depth in explaining, has more than 600+ videos.

http://www.justinguitar.com/

TIA (thanks in advance).

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!

Support for ABC Notation Format in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows!

ABC notation is the simple text-based notation system used by musicians worldwide to store chords, melody, and lyrics of songs. Now with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows you can open and save songs in ABC notation format!

To save the song in ABC notation format, press the [Save As] toolbar button and choose Save as ABC notation file from the menu.
