Songwriting with Reba McEntire’s MasterClass

This course was actually called "Choosing A Song," which is an important distinction. Writing a song and choosing a written song are very different, and Reba explains why the latter is better for your career. This is the second part of my MasterClass project where I take and review Reba McEntire's MasterClass. You can see all of the parts to the project here: Course Intro Songwr[...]

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[...]

7 Things to Consider Before Signing Your Kids Up for Music Lessons

I've got another guest post this week, from Vincent at Music To Your Home (you can check out his info at the end) - I don't have any kids and have no idea what to do with them, but some of you might have a child who is musically inclined.

How Wearing a Posture Brace Can Improve Your Singing

How a Posture Corrector Can Improve Your Singing

I’ll openly admit it: I don’t have great posture. I used to model when I was a kid/teenager, so I think I still carry some of that stance with me, but overall I sit like one of the first people on the human evolution chart: In my defense, I feel that desks are not designed for modern use.

All 126 of Whitney Houston's Songs, ranked from worst to best

Alright, so I’ve seen magazines do this with Taylor Swift, Madonna, Michael Jackson and a few others. I was waiting for the Whitney Houston one to come out (so I could discuss my opinion of it, obviously).
