Re: What we're doing

Nothing. Doing nothing... but I have a good reason - got married on Sunday and the new wife and I are honeymooning in New Orleans. We'll meet up with some friends and check out their gigs, but I'm not going to try and book myself while I'm here (mayhap I'll sit in somewhere if I'm invited.) We get b...

Re: Buzz mute?

If I can find a way to make the kazoo thingies, I may try to make one with a coffee can. Cafe Bustelo used to sell a big can of coffee, but they went to plastic recently and I want to use the old tin ones. Kind of a cross between a bucket and a buzz mute... if I have the time. I'm spending a lot of ...

Re: How Do You Charge for Lessons?

When I was maintaining a studio, I used a "simple" system. Lessons were $25/half hour, $50/hr. A month is 4 lessons (although sometimes you get a free fifth.) Payment of $100 (4 half hour lessons) or $200 (4 one hour lessons) is due at the first lesson each month. Explain the "extra 5th lesson" and ...

Re: Buzz mute?

On the subject of the Buzz Wow... I can't find on either. After H&B discontinued it, they just haven't been showing up on the bay or anywhere else, and when someone does sell one, they want way too much for it. Is DJ around here? A question: where would one get the Kazoo reed thingies? Is this somet...

Re: Self-recording on android with decent quality - USB interfaces?

The tonal quality of several recordings with mike near the bell of my Eb tuba where not much better than plain android recordings. I'm assuming you're listening through headphones or speakers, because if you're just using iPhone speakers everything will sound like crap regardless of what you use to...

Re: Arranging Fees

This is a difficult question, a lot of factors to figure in, but here's my general approach to my arranging income. I don't charge per hour, my prices should go up as I get better, not down. I'll try and figure in time when I'm quoting a job and then work to get it done in that time period. For educ...

Re: Connecting With Event/Wedding Planners

I started doing the wedding band circuit a few years back. I work with a few different agencies and occasionally do some booking myself. To add to the good advice above, a few things that may help: 1) I made most of the connections I have with various agencies through gigs - and most of those throug...
