  • Summer talent shows

    By carmel | June 29, 2017

    Summer break has ended here in my part of the world. But before classes kicked in, I noticed two malls having some local shows, actually they were spearheaded by talent schools showcasing their students who graduated from their music/dance lessons. The audience are mostly the parents and siblings of the graduates. How proud they must have felt seeing their children on stage.

    I bet some of the parents bought musical instruments for their kids to practice on. That is usually the best thing to do when having music lessons, to have an instrument to practice on at home. It’s good that there are many brands and models to choose from the market nowadays, and especially one can happily shop online for acoustic guitars, keyboards and other accessories.

    What’s your favorite hobby?

    By carmel | April 19, 2017

    When I was in high school, socializing was very much done with tangible things like having a “slum book” or autograph where each page would be dedicated to one person and everything about him/her. There was a space for photo, a list of likes and dislikes, favorite songs, aside from the basic biodata. Well, it’s like filling up a job application for a friend.

    Showcasing talent online

    By carmel | April 9, 2017

    It’s heartwarming to learn from a lot of inspiring tales about popular musicians becoming successful and how they worked their way to the top. Some were discovered by talent scouts as solo acts in hotel lounges or as backup singers, while others submitted a demo tape to music producers.

    Nowadays though, there are more places for budding musicians to let the world know about their talents. Playing at local clubs and bars are no longer the only option for being heard. One can take his/her talent online and the possibilities are endless. So many websites are now being set up for showcasing indie musicians and their songs can be downloaded for free or at a cost.

    Amazing Grace

    By carmel | February 3, 2017

    Few days ago, my sis sent me a video link of her little girl strumming the guitar and singing the Christian classic ‘Amazing Grace’. What a sweet rendition of the song by my niece. I am a proud aunt indeed. It’s good that she already knows the basics of guitar playing and at least she is not out-of-tune.

    Season of discounts

    By carmel | December 18, 2016

    In my previous post, I mentioned my dream guitar, and until now it is still a dream. :) It was actually offered online at a discounted price but I was too busy up to the last day of sale to buy it. Maybe it was a good thing I didn’t. For those thinking of buying a new musical instrument, the season for discounts is here, and one can really save a lot. Read the rest of this entry »
