I have started to fix my problem with not having enough music to get me through my work day. Of course the boss is not really all that interested in this sort of problem and they are blocking sites like Pandora which I would probably use if I had the choice. I have been using this site called mp3 skull to help convert music from Youtube and then I put it on my dropbox. I have this app called cloud player which is really great for the purpose that I have in this matter. The only problem with it is that it limits the number of different cloud services that you can use to this end. I have been checking around and there are a lot of different cloud providers, all of which allow you to give a certain amount of free space, a few gigabytes in general. (more…)

If all these issues are removed the site can in the near future grow exponentially and become one of the biggest survey sites.
I have been trying to form a band with some of my friends from school, but it is not really working out so well right now. We are lacking in the vocal area and it is really handcuffing us right now. Of course I could take some singing lessons and I would be pretty decent probably. I am already good enough to some harmonies with a better singer, but to this point we have not been able to find a good singer who is interested. We know this girl at school who is really quite good, but she does not have any interested in doing this. (more…)
I was born in America to parents who were both born here as well. All four of my grandparents were born in India though, so I had a mixed heritage growing up. I am very much an American, but I do love some of the Indian traditions that all of my grandparents have taught me. When I became engaged to my best friend, I knew that we were going to have a mix of American and Indian customs at our wedding. I went to songs.pk to start looking at the different kinds of songs that we could download for our very special day. (more…)
I am getting serious about learning the piano and after about ten years of classes I am sort of making a little money from. I have a classical music dictionary that I know almost by heart, but right now I am playing the electric piano in this band which plays parties and weddings and things like that. I had never played an electric piano before and I had never performed any of the songs they wanted me to play, but they were desperate and they took a chance. The other guy had stormed out over some sort of dispute. (more…)
Attention to all piano or music teachers out there! This post is definitely for you; it aims to provide you with lots of practical and useful tips on effective piano teaching. Read on and see what it takes to be a motivated piano teacher who can truly inspire his or her students to learn classical piano pieces. It has been said that a good learning environment and a group of participative, attentive and enthusiast students of music certainly begin with a highly motivated piano teacher. Your level of motivation greatly affects your students’ levels of interest and enthusiasm. Remember that learning takes two to tango. It has to be a mutual process and since your students look up to you, you need to always be at your best – organized, focused, dedicated and motivated. (more…)
There are many benefits in learning to play a musical instrument for anyone of any age. I myself learned the value of patience and focus thanks to the numerous piano competition s I enrolled in. The benefits for young children who start learning a musical instrument from a young age are also apparent. With such a wide choice of musical instruments available, it might seem difficult in choosing the correct musical instrument for your child to learn. Remember, there will be other factors to consider including the initial cost of the instrument, any up keep and maintenance costs, not forgetting ensuring that the musical instrument remains attractive to learn as it did when it was first being considered. Furthermore, factors such as the size of the instrument through to the volume that it creates can also play a major role in determining what instrument is going to be the most appropriate to learn. Whichever musical instrument in eventually chosen, the chances are that it will provide hours, and years of enjoyment to the person learning it.
Age is also a big factor in considering the type of musical instrument to start learning. For example, young children aren’t going to be able to control an instrument as well as adults. (more…)
I have been playing the piano since I was an 8 year old child. My Mom and Dad both taught me different things. In fact my Mom really loves Jazz and my Dad is a veteran of a traveling road house band. He would play old Rhythm and Blues, Boogie Woogie and the sort of thing you would like if you were some place other than sober. I am looking to expand my repertoire upon the piano and keyboards right now. I am 19 and a half years old and I have been checking out piano sites looking for the best selection of material to suit my style. I am sort of curious as to whether or not I can cut it as a pro.

I have just gotten back from the Indian subcontinent. It is an interesting place, but of course it is very difficult to get around and the situation is very different from what an American from the South is used to. The biggest city we have is the size of the neighborhoods of New Delhi I suppose. Of course you can not listen to the latest hindi songs very easily in Summerfield, but you can get around there in no time at all relatively speaking because there are hardly any people. In New Delhi you literally have to worry about getting caught up in stampede. (more…)
There is tons of music out there that you can listen to, so much in fact that it often times becomes quite hard to pick something to listen to. I know that it sort of sounds like the opposite of a problem, but it can be really frustrating to sit there and try to think about what music you want to listen to. I mean it should not be that hard for a person to have a favorite song, but it is so you need a place that has it all. Badlapur songspk.com is most likely that place. I know that they have a ton of music to choose from and in the case of me, they really are my one stop shop for all things music related. I hope that they have everything that you want them to have when you check them out but even if they don’t they really do have a lot of stuff and you might find something new that you had never thought of listening to before.
I know that we all say we have a favorite genre, but the truth is there is no way we could know all of the options out there available to us. There are thousands and thousands of different bands out there producing anywhere from 1 to 20 different songs each year so the amount of songs available to us just keeps going up and up. Old songs never just dissapear either, so it’s just growing and growing with no way to shrink down at all. That’s pretty awesome in my opinion, but some people don’t really like that and wish that there were a lot less options for them so that they could finally just sit down and choose a song. That’s not likely to happen, but use this site and it will be easier to pick.
After deciding to buy Soundcloud plays from a service that I found on the web, I came to the realization that marketing my music is going to be much more of a complicated challenge than I suspected it to be. Clearly I was naive to think that all I had to do would be to upload some of my recent tracks onto the social music platform so I could start enjoying my instant success. Sometimes I get ahead of myself. Sometimes I’m blinded by my own arrogance. It’d be nice if this were something I could actually blame on my parents for passing on to me but this is something all of my own. (more…)
