Why should you join our rants and raves?

Technology has not only changed the way we live but it has dramatically changed the way we listen to music. Will streaming music now kill the song writers? John Seabrook has recently written about this in the New Yorker, (see our blog)  and the general public are now served inferior music, of inferior quality. This not only affects our hearing but also our enjoyment. There IS a better way and we make no bones about it here. Please subscribe to our mailing list and learn how you can not only improve your listening pleasure but also vastly improve your ability as a music industry professional.

Our Aim is to improve your musical experience

From time to time myself and others will write about special techniques and new ideas on how to get the most from your musical endeavors; as a performer, musician, producer-engineer, or as an enthusiastic audiophile, and music fan.

“If you are interested in raising the level of your ability in the arts, whether it be performing or recording, you must sit up and take notice of what these people can show you".

“I had no idea where I was heading with my recording business until I was able to meet with Glyn and his team and was able to find the motivation to lift my act.”
