There is so much to get to in this post, I’ll just start with…Odd Quartet is now on Patreon!! You may be asking yourself, “What is Patreon?” Well, Patreon is a crowdfunding service that allows creative projects like Odd Quartet to raise money from fans (Patrons). You can support Odd Quartet for as little as $1 per video. But, the cool part is that there are rewards for Patrons who support at different tiers. For example, if you want to be a Patron at the $5 tier, you would also get a coupon off your next purchase at the Odd Quartet store. At the $10 tier, you can get your name in the credits of the next Odd Quartet video. There are a bunch of other rewards for you to check out at the Odd Quartet Patreon page.
The next Music Theory crash course video should also be coming out today. (I will embed it here once it posts on our YouTube page) One thing that I did differently this time is create a worksheet for people to practice with after watching the video. The video is an introduction to counting music, so the worksheet has a bunch of quarter and eighth note rhythms to practice counting with. If you want to download your own copy I will link it below:
Last but most certainly not least – TMEA was a couple of weeks ago and man was it a fun time! TMEA 2017 was a whole ton o’ fun, but it also went by waaaaaay too fast. I had this whole schedule in my head of things that I wanted to see – and that went out the window on day one. Oh well, you can only plan so much for events like these. This was also the first year I had a larger booth than in years past; which was really scary for me. I am also experimenting with some
overdue changes to the website. Now, you can read a random comic from the archives in the right sidebar. You can still get to the full archives by clicking on the “Posts by Month”. I figured since the comic has been on hiatus for about a year, I should take it of of the main page. Still not sure. Let me know what you think.
All in all, I have been doing a lot of things lately that have been really scary for me (launching the Patreon page, getting the bigger booth at TMEA). But, I also feel like I’m not growing creatively if I’m not trying out new things from time to time. Thank you. Yes, you! For being here and helping to make all of these things possible. Thank you for stopping by the both at TMEA. Thank you for watching the Music Theory crash course videos. And thank you for pursuing that lifelong art called music.
