Dear Teo,

Your passion is wonderful. luv Reading your posts reminded me of a book that you may enjoy entitled The Art of Possibility, written by Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander, who was conductor of the Boston Philharmonic. His beliefs about the power of music are so like yours!

Perhaps one day this book will cross your path. Until then, I wish you joy with your endeavours.

Love,
Christine

This forum is wonderful. You won't believe it, but back in the Bob Newhart daze, people went to their "rap group" often. I know I just dated myself, but what they hay!

I've had the passion forever, but the wariness to be specific and wait for the best outlet, best opportunity, this has taken my virtual (yes you all have virtue!!) artist friends to help me super-focus, heal and deal!

I'll check out that book - & authors as soon as I have a minute! I knew - know! I'll be resonating with like minded kindred spirits! Clean syncs I call it.. :0:

Love and LIGHT BEING, Teom ;)

I have played guitar for 20 yrs and been teaching at local music store for 15 yrs. I had an idea that may be I could teach live online with web cam. I have been researching other web sites that offer this and they charge anywhere from $25 to $50 per half hour. I want to charge way less than this more likes $14 per half hour or $25 for whole hour. But I can’t figure out how to advertise it cheap. How can I advertise Guitar lesson live with web cam free?

Hey Teo

You are a real inspiration and these words - "the movie will match the soundtrack!" - are exactly what I needed to hear today! :)

Thank you special man.

You are on to something really huge you know? ;) ;)

If I can help in any way, just ask :)

Hi Marena,

Amazingly, I looked in my email today at 2 replies to this topic I started 11 months ago, here's the other one:

http://board.midibuddy.net/showthread.php?t=109401

She WANTS a guitar teacher! Hah! Maybe my pointing you there.. helps you both?!? :p

My son, who also plays guitar, used to talk a lot about how huge the market is for teaching music online. I'm glad we crossed paths, this sounds like an ingenius idea of yours!!! :D:

my techno-product dream is make the continuous random play http://webpageexperience.com/mid/Play-MidiClassical.htm show pictures of the composer, give dates and other information about his/her life, and maybe even specifics about the artist - maybe even lyrics, chords and such? Maybe sequencial as storable lessons.. one day.. maybe your guitar lessons in that format? who nose he he..

As to a suggestion about free advertising, a well named video showing maybe a rasciado technique or something, flashy bit here or there, people'd download and keep and use that flashy bit, then want more! Not a bait and switch, purely show them some free to get them coming.

Would you be ready for 100 eager students?

Sounds like a fun question :^

--I finally put a hold on "The Art Of Possibility" at the library, and also his Mahler 1st Symphony!--

I thank YOU dear Mammy!

Why so important today? dear one? Just wondering, I'm a firm believer in affirmation type intention design.. in fact I have invented (hah!) a style of song/chant I call

AFFIRMATINA

I'm glad I helped you today, but.. how did I? he he..

Thank you special man.

You are on to something really huge you know? ;) ;)

I just might be a askin' dear Mammy!

Aaaaaaaahhh well.. since I have dear friends listening, let me continue to digress/share and give sort of progress on this wonderful plan inspired by .. the dear one on the first page!
===================
How To Be In Harmony

Section 0: Personal Balance, sort of 'Social Harmony,' much from Chopra, Gawain, Dyer (Cesar Milan) and the type..

Section 1: QRKY=Quick Reference Key. Maybe mouse-pad? Laminated sheet? Tons of quick reference, notation, staves etc..

Section 2: Music Appreciation - really Music Fundamentals

Sections 3-8 my 5 CDs listed above, and the Classical CD I finished last year.

Section 9: Variations. In some cases style fusion, merging, like Chopin in Mambo.. In some cases reworkings like adding vocals - POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS generally, to beautiful music.

Sectioni 10: Masters' Inspirations: Learning excellent life goals and pitfalls to avoid by studying about the great musicians, instrument builders, patrons and such.

There's the overview. I'm actually planning to put HTBIH onto a DVD, that can burn the 6 CDs as well! Sort of a archiving, backup, documenting, project, and also overview of the sub-projects.

There! Don't say I'm lazy and don't get stuff done! Since this initial post, I've gotten closer to a great music school, and other things to really manifest this intention of sharing beautiful music.

Thanks for all of your well wishes and suggestions! Love you all!

PEACE

of

MUSIC!

Teo

How amazing!
I didn't realsie your original post was almost a year ago.
Thanks to Marena for reviving it :)

To answer your question dear Teo, on May 16th I 'abandoned' my home, my husband and my 2 'kids' (19 and 20) for ten days so that I could fulfill a childhood dream and work as a cowboy in Colorado.

On one hand, it could be seen as a totally selfish act. On the other, it could be an act of self-love.

The trouble is, since i came home, the movie and the soundtrack are out of synch! :)

It feels like I stepped out of a very comfortable pair of shoes when I left and they don't fit any more since I got back :)

But your words helped me to realise that I only need to find the right soundtrack and it will all make sense again

:)

So thank you again.

Mammy x

PS: I'm an edtor and ghost writer and would be happy to help in any way I can :)

Hi all,
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symphony_No._9_(Beethoven)

The Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 "Choral" is the last complete symphony composed by Ludwig van Beethoven. Completed in 1824, the choral Ninth Symphony is one of the best known works of the Western repertoire, considered both an icon and a forefather of Romantic music, and one of Beethoven's greatest masterpieces.

Symphony No. 9 incorporates part of An die Freude ("Ode to Joy"), a poem by Friedrich Schiller written in 1785 (first published, 1786, in the poet's own literary journal, Thalia), with text sung by soloists and a chorus in the last movement. It is the first example of a major composer using the human voice on the same level with instruments in a symphony, creating a work of a grand scope that set the tone for the Romantic symphonic form.

Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 plays a prominent cultural role in the world today. In particular, the music from the fourth movement (Ode to Joy) was rearranged by Herbert von Karajan into what is now called the Anthem of Europe.

Aaahh dearestestest friends...

I've sort of evolved once again, performer to composer to SCRIBE.

I was planning to put some CDs in CDBaby, maybe Amazon, Barns & Noble and the like.. but then thought about it more and more.

I've started making scores of my compositions! So far maybe 10 complete, another 10 half way. I was thinking of publishing a book of them this year :D:

So now maybe I'm even thinking my priority should be making scores, hey, I have about 400 songs! Any selling books or CDs will take time from scoring.. in fact, a reason I haven't been here much is that now I can make my scores!

I keep thinking. It was fun playing live, maybe one day. For now, I feel the same as playing and hearing the physical music that I create... except that... it takes maybe a day, and I can hear it by being able to share it with people who see it as very different from some sounds someone created.

They are compositions of Teo Barry Vincent. It brings up the concept of literacy. No matter how good a voice, without training, it can only be so good. Writing is even more that way. Nowadays everyone has their music online, downloadable, etc.. It's really good that I've found my focus, but it's a little bit less social. Though, strangely, now I can share my music in ways I couldn't before!

So I wanted to share the good news. Now I'm actually scoring my songs... here are a few I don't mind sharing with you buddies:

http://webpageexperience.com/doc/Barrys1st12.pdf
http://webpageexperience.com/doc/Add9Ci ... ues04a.pdf
http://webpageexperience.com/doc/ChopinMadeAWay.pdf

Peace and love, Teo

and it gets better and better! Here's the 39 page draft of
HONORING THOSE THAT WENT BEFORE
a book of scores I hope to publish

http://www.webpageexperience.com/doc/Ho ... hose09.doc

About 12 scores, 5 affirmatinas, 3 paintings and 6 poems-- only the scores are mine.

Love and *LIGHT* *BEING*,
Teo
