A R Rehman is building a world class music conservatory in India. The college will provide both classical instrumental and orchestra training, as well as high tech electronic and synthetic capabilities. Some scholarships will be available.

The idea is that although electronic music and digital recording is the future of the music industry, students should also learn to play an instrument. Let me tell you, this is a great plan. I played bass guitar for many years and one of the only things that stopped me and my band from publishing our own album was a lack of access to digital recording training. The software may seem straight-forward in concept (plug it in and record) there are so many options and variables that have to be considered that I had never even heard of.

Once you manage to get a track recorded and sounded good, there is the huge problem of synching it to other tracks and turning the recording into a full song with multiple parts.

The courses will focus on Pro Tools and Apple’s Logic Pro: Software that is considered at the top of the game here in America. Knowing this software and being able to play an instrument will allow students to have great careers in music, both as performers and producers. The opportunity for independent publishing also exists, since computers in general have reduced the cost of the necessary hardware. The internet is offering new models for music sales as well, with some bands finding limited success with “Pay what you want” downloads.

  35. Along with a formal education in music, I would also suggest taking some non music classes as it relates to marketing and promotions. There are many wonder artists who are not “discovered” because they don’t know how to get attention.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

  38. This help me to widen my knowledge about what is your theme is. Thanks a lot for this information!

  40. A regular stroller is the most typical type. It has 4 wheels plus a sturdy frame. Most regular strollers have reclining seats that allow making use of the same unit for your child from infant to toddler. Strollers that convert to car seats are convenient for traveling. The stroller need to have high quality suspension to help keep your baby’s ride comfy and smooth.
