Here’s another “big” update to start the year! I some time over the holidays to work more with my watercolors and I loved it. Will probably be doing more work with them this year (if everything goes to plan).
In this week’s video, we go over some general rules for writing music notation:
There are some more specific rules that I ended up not using in the video, but I wanted to share them here. If you are using a music notation software like Finale or Sibelius ALL of these rules are already programmed into the software and update automatically as you write the music (well, as best as it can. Sometimes beams on note groupings can get a little weird). If you have any questions, leave them the comments below. Thanks for watching/reading. Look for another music theory video soon!
I picked up this metronome kit from Sparkfun called “Metro Gnome”. Besides having a very witty name, the kit was really easy to put together and is actually a decent metronome. Check out the video to see the full build and demo of the metronome in action (yes, it actually goes from 1bpm to 299bpm). Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for watching!
Ah! It has been too long since I have written an update. I promise I’ll be better about sharing all the awesomeness that is going on. Last time, I was just about to head to San Antonio for the TMEA convention. I am happy to say that the convention was really fun and I was able to meet a bunch of readers and got to introduce Odd Quartet to a bunch of new readers. Here is a a wrap up video I made for TMEA. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see the latest videos!
I have also been practicing more calligraphy. So far, they’ve been related to music somehow. Let me know if you have any questions about the videos, I’d love to do a Q&A some time. Thanks for watching!
Hi Everyone! So much has happened in the last few weeks and I haven’t had time to let you know about some of the updates so I decided to make this ALL ENCOMPASSING (for now) post to get you caught up on all things Odd Quartet.
1. There’s a new video up at my YouTube channel. It’s about how the music clefs got their shapes. Check it out and let me know what you think!
2. There are three new items in the store! The impossible triplet shirt, Treble Landscape poster, and a new tardis blue Dr. Who poster. Hit the links to check them out in the store, or click the store button at the top of the page to check them out.
3. Odd Quartet is returning to TMEA in San Antonio next week! I think this will be the fourth year I’ve done TMEA. This show always has a great turnout and so many awesome exhibits and concerts. You can still register for the convention if you haven’t already. Hope to see you there
