After polishing your tracks and booking your shows, promotion is one of the hardest parts of being a successful band or musician. While I do my best to make sure I am knowledgeable and up-to-date on our local music scene, it is impossible to make sure I know every song by every band. The Asheville Muscians Directory is part of the larger Asheville Music Guide which includes directories of local venues, music studios, recordings, music videos, and other music resources.
Veteran musician Don Laka said in an interview with the SABC that they are also planning road shows to promote local music. I chose this article because it supports the purpose of my blog and emphasizes the importance of local music. Loosely partnered with RVa Magazine, Gallery 5 hosts art shows, books musical events and promotes them on-line and through print media.
Other events throughout the year, such as Austin music backer Nancy Coplin’s BIG SIX- birthday party recently, donate their proceeds to HAAM as well. There’s an evident passion for the accuracy of the information and protection of the Canadian music culture by the formation of the Wiki project, and this in my opinion is an extremely good and important thing.
There have been many studies on the link between music and emotions, too many to go into for a simple blog post. Other students have a natural interest and talent for listening to the music that they play. I will try to talk to either someone that works at WTMD and helps with their events or a local band that has been featured on WTMD, such as The Cheaters or 3Fifths.
As a start to this article I would just like to say that I am no expert on music in any of its forms. I think it was a good move because people like us who prefer local music don’t get ear-pleasing music. A good music instructor will allow students to try out a variety of styles of music during their studies such as classical, pop, rock, jazz, country, improvisation, or writing original pieces.
