Can you believe it's the first of March? Seems like we just finished taking down Christmas decorations, and here we are. It's been a good year so far, and we're thankful to God for His blessings!
Our musical friends
This is our chance to say "thanks" to our musical friends that we've worked with this month. We've done music for: Byron Foxx, Ted Gaddis, Mike Manor, Angela Joy, and Niki Lott. Projects have included live vocal recording with adults and children, post-production editing and sound effects, 4-part transcriptions of new music, a teacher's piano arrangement and theme song for a children's publishing company in Canada, and a podcast theme. It's been a great month to help our friends with their musical goals!
More free resources to help you
Here are some more resources that we've added to our FREE STUFF! page. One is an eight-page brochure called, "The Vocalist's Guide to Recording, Rehearsing, and Performing." This fairly short report covers things like the anatomy of sound, voice production, resonance, voice registers & categories, vocal care & maintenance, vocal lessons & warm-up routines and a lot of other helpful things.
Then for those of you who may be planning a recording, we have a 23-page booklet called, "Planning Your Album from Beginning to End." Whether you're new at this or you've done it for years, this booklet is chocked full of helpful things! Subjects include pre-recording & planning steps, recording steps, mastering and post-production steps, legal steps, replication & digital distribution steps, artwork & design, and much, much more! This is a wealth or helpful information in a concise format.
