Promoting your CD to radio takes a lot of organization and time management skills. Let me help organize your process. First you need to find radio stations that are willing to accept submissions from independent artists (contact names, addresses, phone and email for radio stations across the globe are listed in “The Indie Guide To Music, Marketing and Money” and The Indie Contact Guide – it’s companion book).

Don’t become one of those people that go to a seminar right off the bat and spend a good deal of money only to find that the particular path isn’t really for them. I’ve seen this happen a hundred times. People go to a short sale seminar and buy everything the Guru has to offer. A few weeks later they go to a foreclosure seminar and they buy all the materials that Guru has to offer and on and on. The point of buying ANY material is to stop doing everything else and focus in on becoming an expert in that arena yourself. Moving from one subject to the next is confusing and expensive to say the least. For a beginner (or even a veteran) one seminar can be like drinking water from a fire hose. Information overload can paralyze a person.
Think decorations. Something fun that we like to do to show our holiday spirit. provide tips and ideas on how to decorate. Maybe even write about a certain line of decorations that you’d like to share with other AC’ers. Talk about certain decorations, and where to place them. Another great idea would be to provide tips on how to decorate faster and more effectively- For those of us who don’t have a whole lot of time to decorate, or for us who are tired of spending hours decorating. Or help out others like me, who are completely clueless when it comes to decorating.
Now, common classical and Spanish guitars are being referred to as Acoustic guitars! To my thinking they could have put in some hi-tech materials for the new name acoustic. No matter how I looked into these modern day guitars, they are still made of wood, maybe some with synthetic material or special plastic! Nothing was really new to me. After some time, with the resurgence of revivals, acoustic guitar was just a new moniker for a classical or a Spanish guitar. That was it about learning acoustic guitars. Still the same guitars, maybe just some new materials to used to construct them.
Make some music. A recording via your computer, microphone, and Microsoft Outlook (or other software) is a great way to send your greetings, your favorite cantopop 80s 90s, or even your favorite story for grandma and grandpa to hear on Grandparents Day. Later, they can listen to your message again, whenever they need a little boost. Or do it the old-fashioned way. Send a cassette.
On Feb. 20, 2013, the music video for One Direction’s “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)” premiered, and some fans are calling it One Direction’s best video so far. Instead of having a professional director helm the “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)” video, One Direction self-filmed the video. The money that would have been used for a professional video crew was donated to Comic Relief. The video was filmed in different countries, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan and Ghana. As previously reported, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron makes a cameo in the video at the famed No. 10 Downing Street.
But, the ending was the most memorable of the entire field trip. We were in line to get the books signed and was aware that Mrs. Meyers had to sign each book and proceed to the next person without conversation because of the amount of people in attendance. As we came up to the table, someone nudged her and she looked up at the student who had played Edward and simply smiled and said, “You are how I pictured Edward”. The student proudly thanked her.
