“So you want to be a rock ‘n’ roll star?” sang The Byrds in 1967. “Then listen now to what I say. Just get an electric guitar and take some time and learn how to play.” Easy enough, right?
But there’s the rub — plenty of people think it’s easy to form a band and start selling out stadiums in just a few short years. That’s why there are currently over eight million bands on MySpace all with recorded demos streaming on their pages for free. They’re waiting for the right talent scout to click their profile, waiting for a record contract, waiting for that big break.
Being a professional musician is a full-time gig that doesn’t necessarily abide by a 9-to-5 schedule. In fact, it’s probably closer to 7 p.m.-to-2 am. It’s not enough to simply purchase a guitar and become a virtuoso, either; there’s a whole wo
Video marketing has never been bigger. Considering the fact that there are over 4 billion videos viewed on YouTube everyday, it’s easy to see the appeal of marketing videos online. However, making a successful video marketing campaign isn’t easy. It takes some serious web video production to get the thousands upon thousands of hits you’d like.
So, to help you make the most successful campaign, here’s a few web video production tips to help you out!
1. Who Is Your Audience?
According to the Search Engine Journal, YouTube’s demographics are predominantly Generation Y viewers (those born mid 70s to early 2000′s), but there is a diverse range of people who use the website. In fact, household incomes can vary greatly
Artists may not be surprised by this fact, but Americans for the Arts reports that in the United States, if a young adult participates in the arts, then they are four times more likely to receive recognition for academic achievements. Becoming an artist, especially one that finds recognition, is no easy task. Whether you create art as a hobby or a profession, it is important to learn constantly, and take as much help and instruction as is offered.
Art students, and anyone with an interest in art, would do well to subscribe to top art magazines and take advantage of the information they contain. Fortunately, these magazines are available in formats other than print. They are accessible online, and even on some mobile devices. One such publication is the International Artist Magazine, which profiles internat
In 2012, there were twice as many couples who spent a million dollars or more on their wedding compared to those who did so in 2011. Perhaps you are planning your wedding and you have a similarly ample budget. In that case, you may want to consider having a lovely outdoor reception underneath your choice of high quality wedding tents rentals.
A tent like this can provide just the right kind of festive and momentous ambiance to your wedding, all while imbuing it with added elegance. And in order to achieve a more cohesive aesthetic approach, you may want to consider obtaining your table linen rentals from the same source as the tent rental. This will make it easier to establish a stunning visual theme to base the wedding reception around. Whe

One such digital resource that is helping to change the art scene’s landscape is The Artist Magazine, which is one of the top art magazines around that publishes current art news, info about international artists, tips on techniques and special effects, and marketing and business topics.
The Artist magazine is not the only site on the web that helps change the landscape of the art wor
Possessing a skill or interest in the visual arts can be a rewarding and enriching lifelong hobby. Art is not only fascinating to those who spend time on art forums or subscribe to fine art magazines, but it is a priceless historical tool that has unlocked countless doors to the past. Art has also been shown as an invaluable vehicle for learning.
Although there is overwhelming evidence that children learn better though hands on learning, it seems odd that funding for visual arts education continues to decline. According the National Education Association, when educational budget cuts are made, visual arts are usually among the first programs to go. Of course, this trend is nothing new, as the educational system in the United States has long been known to undervalue the arts.
Despite the fact that art educa
Did you know that about two million weddings take place in the U.S. every year? If you are planning a wedding, you know how much work goes into the process. The average couple, in fact, spend 18 months planning the whole event out. An important part of the event is the reception that takes place after the ceremony, and there are several items you will need for the occasion. Here are three easy tips for having an affordable, beautiful, and less stressful wedding reception.
1. Plan a Color Scheme
If you want to reduce planning stress, color schemes, though seemingly complicated, will actually simplify the planning process. Instead of looking at every possible flower color for a centerpiece, for example, you would only be looking for red and turquoise options. Instead of checking out ev
