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

Every Day I use BIAB and love it
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.
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.

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.
- RecordingRevolution https://www.youtube.com/user/recordingrevolution?feature=watch - instrument: studio - recording and mixing - comments: a lot of little but important stuff most of us amateurs aren't aware of explained in an understandable way -- and he doesn't get angry when we play his videos over and over...

I'd have to say Rich Severson of 99centguitarlessons.com.
His classes are changing the way I play and they are the best money deal on line if you consider the quality and level of the material presented. Jazz including chord melody, Fingerstyle which is his name for chord melody with moving bass line. Most single classes under 5 bux at least by a penny but there are plenty @2.99 and 3.99. This may not be news to many of you. But I find his jazz classes to be the best if you can't move to Boston and attend Berkley or if you feel your 60 plus year old brain might not keep up with all the twenty somethings in a group class. There is also lots of blues and bebop and entry level bebop blues classes where you begin to reach deeper into theory for your lines. The theory part is just about painless and therefore not near as deep as a scholastic music program might present. He has courses like that as well for those who want them. His Major Scale choices will change the way you play blues with very little effort as long as you already have some decent skill groups. I forgot to mention there are sometimes discrepencies in the written material between the tab and manuscript notation. At these prices who cares?

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.
The "Download Manager" within Band-in-a-Box® for Windows is a great tool to confirm or help with the installation of your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows program!
What does the Download Manager do?
Automatically installs Band-in-a-Box® content (RealTracks, RealDrums, etc.) in the background, so you don't have to sit there the whole time! It can also confirm that you've completely installed your purchase.
How do you use it?
Within the program, go to Help | Utilities | Run Download/Install Manager now. Using your activation code, the program will analyze the installation folders, and list anything that still needs to be downloaded and installed.
If you have a folder of songs that you'd always like easy access to within Band-in-a-Box, make sure you familiarize yourself with The SongPicker feature, which access the folder that you choose and lock it to!
Access the SongPicker by clicking on the [Song] button next to the title of the song within the main screen of Band-in-a-Box. The first time the SongPicker is opened, you can choose the folder to use to create the list by selecting [Change] and navigating to your preferred directory. Once chosen, select [OK - Make Song List], and Band-in-a-Box does the rest... the next time you click on [Song], you'll be taken directly to your preferred folder!
