Story

....."to be true professionals, once you have the real-life-in-studio experience to successfully give quality results at a high level, you must take the leap" (Charles Szczepanek) ....................... I was born in the UK, had Jamaican parents and give praises with the Rastafarian movement that perceive Haile Selassie as messianic, living by the teachings of H.I.M Haile Selassie I Jah Rastafari, Emperor of Ethiopia, born Tafari Makonnen Woldemikael, Ethiopia's regent from 1916 and emperor from 1930, as the returned messiah of the Bible. Do not receive the mark of the beast or worship him and his image and suffer the plagues of disobedience that Sunday worship brings, just keep Jah commandments and remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I think being an electronic device programmer vs traditional instrument musician is an overlooked scenario with music production nowadays. The choice of PC/sample based (mixing in the box) type music production or learning how to skillfully manipulate an instrument (whilst reading musical notation, NIGHTMARE) e.g, Guitar, Saxophone, Piano etc. If all musicians knew music theory! notes, scales, clefs, staves etc... Like it was a compulsory lesson at school.

As a "need to go to social site" this online streaming tool that is connecting musicians from all over the globe and establishing them into the industry by using its online community that continually supports its members by reviewing their uploaded material and giving user's feedback for completed songs and/or works-in-progress. It's an excellent service and I, for one, love it. Thanks Drooble
