Hi All

I was recently approached by Musical-U to put together a guest blog post on how I am using BIAB to become more musical. I chose to explain how I make a backing track with Band-in-a-Box and how I use that backing track to practice playing along to. Musical-U did a really good of transcribing the video I sent them and putting the post together.

Here is the link to the article on their website.

https://www.musical-u.com/learn/how-to-make-a-backing-track-with-joanne-cooper/

I have also been involved with them in making some BIAB tracks (along with the lead sheets) for some nursery rhymes. These are to be used in a practice module to help their members play melodies and chords by ear.

I can highly recommend this program for anybody looking to enhance their musicality in a non-threatening environment. Their podcasts are a great free resource. https://www.musical-u.com/learn/welcome-musicality-podcast/

Nice work Joanne. I've been subscribed to YouTube videos for you and them and have seen these videos pop up. They look great and it seems like a great relationship you have with them.
