My New Year's Resolutions for the One Minute Music Lesson

Happy New Year
Happy New Year

Hi One Minute Music Lesson Fans, Happy New Year! I just wanted to wish you a Happy New Year and I want to tell you about my new year's resolution for 2013. Before I reveal my resolution and how it will help you, I want to give you a little background on how my resolution came to be.

It all started when ...

I began answering questions and chatting with you and other fans of the One Minute Music Lesson over the past few months. I have been thinking of ways to increase our community, such as our forum, so that you can grow as a musician by using one of the key elements of musical growth  . . .  interacting with other musicians.

My 3 New Year's Resolutions

My resolution is to get to know YOU better and help you know EACH OTHER better. As this website has grown I have met many of you and interacted via emailFacebookTwitter and Youtube.

Through these various social networks I am meeting so many of you, and I see a common desire amongst you for more information to help you improve your musicianship skills.

The community of the One Minute Music Lesson is steadily growing and I want to introduce you to want I have been working on recently to further build this community.

This new project is being designed to give you more access to music education materials. This project will help connect you to each other and help further your development through interaction.

Over the past year I have been building content for my music theory and ear training academy and I have finally found the perfect platform to deliver this course content to you via the teaching platform.

This upcoming year I will be building and re-imagining my music theory and ear training academy, and I want to get as much feedback from you as possible over the next few months.

To do this I am re-posting all my One Minute Music Lessons in a free course on, entitled "How To Read Music for Busy People". This course is being used as a test classroom for you to test out how you like the academy platform.

Here's How The Course Works

Since this course is being built live (see it here now) you can chime at any point to give me feedback on it's design or ask questions.

Currently there are 26 lessons and each lesson has a video and will have an exercise or a worksheet. I am currently creating the exercises and worksheets and uploading them every other day or so.

After you've checked it out let me know what you think of the Udemy class setup. Let me know what you think about the look and feel of the classroom and how you like the interface of the course in the comments below or directly in the Udemy classroom.
