If you have an excellent ear and are passionate about music, you may have finally decided that it is time to explore the possibility of opening your own recording studio. Running a successful recording studio business can be difficult. With all of the personal, high quality recording equipment available on the market today, many artists are choosing to simply record and mix tracks themselves. However, nothing can replace the personal touch of a really top notch recording studio director.
Exceptional audio engineering skills are absolutely essential for running a recording studio. Customers will expect to be able to make any cutting and pasting requests, and they will expect their tracks to be finished as soon as possible. You should have an editing software selected and then know every shortcut inside and out. Not only will this make your job quicker and easier but it will keep your clients happy and satisfied as well.
Quality equipment is also vital in a recording studio. Remember, many artists already have good quality microphones and recording devices at home. When they pay for a studio recording they expect both the sound and quality to be better. This also includes having a studio with reasonable acoustical qualities. Although some sound altering can be done afterwards to create echoes or mimic certain acoustics, ideally you will be starting off in a space where the sound naturally resonates.

How To Write Your Own Songs
Writing a song is a great way to express yourself; whether you want to say something to a specific someone through music, or simply want to express yourself through song. Knowing where exactly to start however, can be confusing and overwhelmingly. Each musician has their own preferred method of writing songs and lyrics, and as you become more experienced with writing your own songs, you will slowly develop your own personal style and techniques.
Start by doing some "musical brainstorming." It helps if you have a keyboard or guitar to "noodle" around on. Try out a couple of chord progression or melodies and when something grabs you write it down. Decide on the overall mood and tone that you are going for. Remember, this is just the draft phase.
Lyrics are one of the most important parts of any song and are worth spending some time on. Your lyrics should fit naturally with the music. For example, you shouldn't be worried about running out of breath because your sentence is too long or have words that get awkwardly crammed together together. Make sure the the lyrics and music flow together. A common structure for pop songs is: chorus, verse, chorus, bridge. If you are new to song writing this is a good format to start with until you have more experience.

Have anyone heard about this new gospel group I found?
Wed, 14 Jan 2009
Have anyone heard about this new gospel group I found? They are called "The Hedges And Highways Gospel Singers". I first heard their music on a website call CDBaby.com, I listen to their gospel music and I enjoyed every song. And I also read that they are from North Carolina. I heared that there are a lot of good singers in NC. I have download their songs, and I sing them in my church.
I have made me a gospel choir at my church. We sing their songs and my pastor loves all of them. We are bless to have something new to use in our church. God has been blessing our church. We would like to meet this Gospel Group in person someday or goto one of their concerts. I also have notice that they release a new gospel cd every year. Now I am waiting for their new 2009 album. Thank you all God bless.
