The Top Artists of 2019 & How You Can Be Like Them in 2020

The Top Artists of 2019

The Top Artists of 2019 - let's celebrate them, congratulate them, and learn from them! I do this every year (you can see 2017 here and 2018 here if you want). It's hard to list the "top artists" because that's a controversial topic, but this list comes from Billboard and we're going with that. Here it is if you want to fact check me. Not a shocker, some of these were big last year too, s[...]

On Stage with Deadmau5: Final MasterClass Review

Deadmau5 MasterClass Review

This is my final review of the Deadmau5 MasterClass! I've gone through each segment in previous posts. I was going to do this one and make one final recap, but I decided to just end it with this one in the interest of saving everyone time. I've liked the class so far so I don't think this one class will throw my opinion too far the other way. If you want to see my other posts, here the[...]

The Music Business: Deadmau5 MasterClass Review Part 7

We are almost done with my Deadmau5 MasterClass journey! I took a break for a while to work on my remix of his song (you can see my progress on it here). I also wanted to take a break last week because I wrote a post about the music industry and record labels (see that here) before I took this class, so I wanted to post that before I posted this review. That way my original thoughts would[...]

The Deadmau5 MasterClass – A Review

Find out if the Deadmau5 MasterClass is worth the money!

I have a new project, the Deadmau5 MasterClass! I've previously done Christina Aguilera's (see here) and Reba McEntire's (see here), so I'm excited to start this new one! I’m in a weird spot with my projects right now. My DNA project (where I research the musical history of my ethnicity results, see here) is ongoing, but the research takes a lot of time so I can’t put out regu[...]

The Biggest Artists of 2018, and How You Can Be Like Them in 2019

How 2018's Biggest Artists Can Inspire Your 2019

The "Biggest Artists of 2018" is a difficult award to hand out, because there are many different criteria we could use. When I looked at the Billboard list of Highest-Paid Musicians, all of the Top 10 made most of their money from touring. This does not apply to you if you're not a major touring artist, so I don't want to focus on highest pay alone. Instead, let's focus on the Top 10 bigg[...]

Yes yes, I’m starting a new music project! This is another MasterClass, so yes, this will be an affiliate link. I’ve done Christina Aguilera’s MasterClass already (you can check it out here) and did a full series on it. Many found it helpful so I thought, why not try it again? MasterClass has a BUNCH of music teachers, as well as actors, chefs, writers, or anything else you want to[...]
