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).

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm

RealBand® 2018 for Windows Build 3 Update Available!

RealBand 2018 users can update their version with the latest patch, Build 3. Download this patch here

Summary of Changes since 2018 Build 3:

Added: Section Numbers supported. All section letter menus now include numbers 1 through 9 in addition to letters A through Z.
Fixed: Section letters in Notation Window were not being resized if the notation was zoomed in/out
Fixed: RealBand might freeze when generating audio harmonies
Fixed: Loading in a BB song (MGU/SGU) or generating realtracks could freeze up the program.
Fixed: Chords in Notation/LeadSheet on 1st beat of a bar were being drawn too close to bar lines.
Fixed: Support for XP and Vista.
