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


Have Fun!

Willie Thomas' "Jazz Everyone"

https://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:
https://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).

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?

Ron

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."

Convenient Ways to Listen to Band-in-a-Box® Songs Created by Program Users!

The User Showcase Forum is an excellent place to share your Band-in-a-Box® songs and listen to songs other program users are creating!

There are other places you can listen to these songs too! Visit our User Showcase page to sort by genre, artist (forum name), song title, and date - each listing will direct you to the forum post for that song.

This page has SoundCloud built in, so it won't redirect you. We've also added the link to the Artists SoundCloud page here, and a link to their forum post.

We hope you find some inspiration from this amazing collection of User Showcase Songs!
