As the director of Cafemnee, I am proud to present ‘Time for My Music’, an online community group that evolved from the virtual activities we made during the lockdown and that aims to offer a space for females in music to connect, share, learn and advance themselves.
I am about to close the slots for the online sax lessons. The form and calendar will be open until July 31st. Go to the lessons page to find all the information, prices and how to book. If you know of someone who could benefit from this last opportunity, give me a shout!
For some time now, two different Spotify accounts pop up when you search for my name in the platform, which, understandably, has caused some confusion. To fix that, here I come to present you my official Spotify account, where you will always find my music to play, along with several playlists of recommended artists that I am organizing just for you.
Are you new here and just found out about my podcast Success Beyond The Score? Or maybe you listened to the first episodes and lost track of it afterwards. Even if you are a regular listener (thank you for your support!) this recap will be useful to easily find the themes that you want to review and save them for later.
We now have a platform with private forums where members can share exercises and WIPs for others to provide feedback. We have a gallery of lessons that they can revisit whenever they want. We had videocalls and shared screenings, we learned together to use a wide arrangement of virtual tools. It was enriching, it was empowering, and it allowed us to rise together against the challenge of the pandemic.
So far, it has been lovely to give sax lessons through the internet. It has opened a lot of possibilities for both students and me, and I must say I deeply enjoy seeing how people who would not get back to their instrument under normal circumstances, give it a chance now and rediscover their voice.
Given the amount of money generated by the streaming of music, it doesn’t make sense that songwriters, composers and performers have to rely on Government support and struggle so badly to survive. For this reason, the Musicians’ Union and Ivors Academy joined forces to demand more transparency in the flow of money generated by streaming services.
It is a reality: more and more artists are seeking their income online. Nowadays, gigs, physical albums and the likes are not the only way to earn money through music, and this opens a wide fan of possibilities… but also challenges.
For a limited time, Millicent will be offering live lessons through the videochat platform Zoom, where you will be able to get classes tailored to your specific needs and wishes, in the hours more convenient for both you and her.
