Hi guys, its Justin from Peace of Mind Music Lessons. As you may already know, during the pandemic everything have shifted a lot towards online learning and we lost our small teaching staff leaving only me but I still wanted to offer our services as much as I can. Attached are 4 handouts of a free curriculum I designed to teach basic music theory to anyone who is interested in learning how to create full songs at home. All you need to do is download GarageBand or a similar free DAW on your smartphone or computer and follow the 4 handouts with matching short videos.
Class 1: Intro to MIDI Keyboard
Class 2: Making a Drumbeat
Class 3: Bass, Chords & Melodies
Class 4: Structuring & Mixing your song
You can find the playlist of short matching videos on our Peace of Mind Music Lessons Youtube page (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdHLuuP4maQ&list=PLWxOINdPa50cs26ilO3_rzdA839iryYeH).
If you find the handouts and videos helpful and have any questions feel free to e-mail me for a free Zoom Music to answer any questions you may have or that are not covered in the videos. Have fun!
Hi everybody! This is an update on the Computers for Kids Program! So I have been SO busy building computers, I have been learning everything from OS, to DAWs and have built systems from Protools 5 all the way up until the current Protools 12 (check IG & FB for pics coming shortly!) and with many other DAWs in between as well! All the bundles will include virtual music lessons attached to them and we will launch some new programs including group ZOOM/home studio rock band classes and pod rock band class! Hopefully we can begin a more normal teaching environment again! This has been a lot of work, consuming a lot of time and money but I know things have changed for everyone and we are all in this together so hopefully we can resume music lessons soon and this all be worth it!
Hi! My names Justin from Peace of Mind Music Lessons, before Covid-19 I had small recording studio and had a few recording bundles for projects we were starting with a few of my buddies. I had to close my recording studio since the beginning of Covid-19 and ended up putting together the bundles and selling them to a couple people here locally and kept one for myself to continue working on music and building a home zoom and recording studio.
When I was putting the bundles together it gave me an idea that if I start building/restoring computers I can provide a system for students that create a new school atmosphere during these uncertain times of Covid-19. I have been teaching online music lessons for over 10 years before the pandemic started and also have using/customizing and doing some repairs on Mac computers for years as well. I have accumulated over 10 years of experience, knowledge, and tools to provide a whole cloud of music handouts and curriculum to students so I decided to start building the systems for the students with the spare parts and hardware people have at home and then providing them to students to take part in an online music curriculum. I will also build some bundles to sell to the public to put the money aside outside of the parts to subsidize students who want to take lessons but can not afford weekly consistently lessons. Recording Bundles will be unique, specified, practical and have a purpose. I will start posting examples on our Instagram as well!
We are primarily looking for older Macs about a decade + old (2000-2010), and appropriate peripherals from the same decade (DVI/VGA Monitors, Older Ram, Video Cards & USB Devices, Older external or internal hard drives, and also music software, interfaces and speakers from the same era.
If you have any software, music equipment or computer parts you would consider donating to our music school I can credit you the sale value of your items towards music lessons vouchers for yourself, friends, family or neighbors. I am also willing to make whatever cash offer I am able to at the time if you are not interested in any music lessons as well!
