Class Tonight on Web 2.0 for Musicians at Seattle Drum School Georgetown

From Dave Marriott:

In case you haven’t heard about this via their advertising, I’ll be teaching my first class at the Seattle Drum School Georgetown about this content called, not surprisingly, “Web 2.0 for Musicians and Other Artists”. It’s only 15 dollars for this session, and if you make it tonight you’ll get a discount on all future sessions. From the advertisement:

Want to get the most exposure for your YouTube videos?

Unsure how to tackle Facebook and MySpace?

Interested in learning how to use Flickr to promote yourself?

Did you know there are hundreds of new tools online for communicating with your audience and attracting new fans?

Come to “Web 2.0 for Musicians and Other Artists” on November 25th at 7pm for a two-hour in-depth introductory session teaching you how to use these new Web 2.0 tools to promote, publicize, and sell your music, writing, film or art. Only $15, plus a discount on all future sessions! Whether you are a teenage musician or a veteran professional, this is for you, so sign up now! Call today!

If you can’t make it tonight, no problem! Just e-mail me and let me know you are interested in future sessions so I can keep you informed. Tonight is some basics on the big sites, but in the future we will focus on less-common Web 2.0 sites and more musician-specific applications online. If you get a chance – come by! Only 15 bucks!

Daniel Barry and SWOJO at The Seattle Drum School

OA2 Records presents a double-bill of music on Tuesday, March 11 at The Seattle Drum School featuring music from Daniel Barry‘s new CD, “Walk All Ways,” and The Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra and their recent CD, “Meeting Of The Waters.”

Sculpting a new acoustic sound that defies categorization while voicing universal sonorities, Daniel Barry creates a fluid blend of chamber music and improvised shapes for the 21st century. “Walk All Ways” interweaves Western Classical music traditions with the sensuous rhythmic vitality of the Caribbean and South America, adding the spirit of free-blowing jazz to create a distinct, original all-encompassing world vision expressed through the pure language of sound.

SWOJO shows off their musical muscle in this set of original tracks recorded live in concert. Performing the music of Hazel Leach, Jill Townsend and their musical director, Dr. Daniel Barry, “Meeting of the Waters” exhibits the power, energy and spirit of the 7-year old group’s live performances. SWOJO’s distinctive sound blends the dynamic and the artful, the bold and the sensitive, exploring the jazz mainstream and all manner of Latin music.

Videos from Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts’ Visit to the Seattle Drum School Georgetown

Back in May, the Seattle Drum School officially opened it’s newest branch in Georgetown, and to help commemorate the event, drummer Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts stopped by for an informal performance and clinic. The Seattle Drum School recently posted five videos from the event, with at least one more to come. They’ve been getting some notice, and ‘Tain’ himself has even embedded them on his education page.
