Making Music - 74 Creative Strategies for Producers We’ve all been there: opening a new Live Set, pondering the blank slate of an empty Session View window, wondering how to begin. Or, not knowing how to get from that first spark of inspiration to a finished piece of music. The fact is, despite all the music tools and technology at our disposal nowadays, making music remains as difficult as ever. Why this is, and what you can do about it is the subject of a new book entitled Making Music - 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers.

Designing and marketing an appealing online course on udemy.com A few years ago I came across one challenging statement on a LinkedIn forum. The participants were discussing the process of online teaching – how to get started, how to scale it, what platforms to use for webinars or online lessons, etc. They went back and forth talking about the advantages and disadvantages of using Skype and other similar applications, and then somebody posted a comment that etched into my memory and made me acutely aware of where I was and where I had to be.
