If you teach music, stick around because this one’s just for you!
I’m excited to tell you about a giveaway and review that’s happening right here!
I’m talking about Moosic Studio— it’s an app that helps you manage your music studio.
When Carlos, the creator, asked me to try the app– that replaces all my studio papers— I was intrigued… and I gave it the nod for trying it out because it looked high-quality (not to mention, fancy).
Here’s the story behind the app, as Carlos tells it…
I started creating Moosic Studio because my wife, Margaret, needed it– a solution that manages her business and keeps track of her students and lessons.
I found a couple of solutions out there, but most were clunky and confusing to use, and cost a few hundred dollars.
Since I have a background in mobile games and applications, I started to sketch out what we wanted in an app.
Working from the house, I was able to listen in on Margaret’s music lessons, and bounce ideas off her.
The hard part was funding the app. It took most of the year to save enough for development. It was done by a local developer in here Raleigh, NC; he really streamlined my designs into what you see today.
Let’s see if the app lives up to it, shall we?

So that people will want to get in touch with you– you’ll look so dang cool with your new logo.
Your new logo will make (almost) anything look professional in 3 seconds flat. (e.g. concert/recital programs, bio sheets, website, anything.)
The makeover will also help you get new clients– professional post cards, business cards, plus shoutouts and features– you’ll be set. ;)
Your friends might get jealous. Just saying.
All you have to do is sit back and relax.

Who doesn’t love sight reading?
Let’s back up:
Who hasn’t struggled with sight reading– teaching or learning?
It’s one of the hardest skills…
But it’s also one of the most important.
That’s where SightReadingMastery comes in.
Today we have an awesome giveaway with SightReadingMastery, a site that wants to help you teach and learn sightreading.
Does it really do the job?
I was pleasantly surprised when Evan, a reader and music teacher from Texas, emailed me about SRM.
He says SRM was created because he wanted to make learning and teaching sightreading easier, and because it’s such an important skill that we struggle with.
Read on to find out if SRM really makes it easier for people to learn and teach sight reading… and enter the giveaway to win a LIFETIME account. (Worth $348/year)
This review is a completely honest account of SightReadingMastery.
Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway!
Edit: Here’s one email I got…
I received Seascape a couple of weeks ago and I love it! The four pieces are difficult enough to challenge me quite a bit and are really, really pretty. They also all use the same kind of playing style (big arpeggios in the left hand and a complex melody in the right hand) that I love. I have sight read the four pieces a couple of times now and I’ll hopefully memorize one soon (I like The Mermaid the best :D). Also, I have attached a picture of myself and Seascape! Thanks again.
Without further ado, here are the giveaway winners! Congratulations to these five lucky readers!
