With overwhelmingly positive results, we’re happy to share a few testimonials of Soundfly’s Orchestration For Strings course directly from our students.
Vocals are the heart of almost every pop song. In fact, save for instrumental music, vocals should be the focal point of a song in any genre. Whenever listeners find themselves humming along to a song, it’s usually the top-line vocal melody they’re latching onto, so mixing that aspect of your song’s arrangement for ultimate clarity is of particular importance.
Narada Michael Walden, who produced “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” once said that recording this song “was about trying to create the best possible record that will last for hundreds of years.” And that’s exactly what they got. It was a #1 hit when it was released in 1987, and over 30 years later, people still dance to this at weddings and sing their hearts out to it.

Modes are a great resource for both improvising and composing. They give us a great variety of harmonic choices, but it’s often difficult to remember the difference between one and the other. In this article, we will look at a way to remember which notes make up a certain mode. In order to do so, we will have to build upon a previous knowledge of major and minor scales.
By virtue of the ways we are changing as a society, the classroom must take into account changes in epistemology, changing values and communication, and changes in how we learn and interact with the world. That starts with the teacher. We can and should meet this challenge with the same sense of “play” that we want to instil in our students. Things like educator discounts for Ableton Live and other software can help teachers to also become students, ensuring they can constantly reexamine the role of technology in the music classroom.
This is an exciting music video that takes full advantage of high-intensity performance footage and a gripping narrative. The members of Bullet for My Valentine are soaked by rain throughout the performance, which is both perfectly fitting for the song title as well as an ode to the twist in the storyline towards the end of the video. After discovering her partner cheating, the girl violently pours a can of gasoline all over the man, the other girl, and herself, before dropping the lighter to reveal that it’s in fact water — a cruel joke in retribution.
A prolific Nashville songwriter (who shall remain nameless) has a strategy where he wakes up and writes down five ideas, lines, or thoughts in his journal. In the sessions he goes to that day, he’ll pull from that list and use the words as the first line of the song, the last line of the song, the first line of the chorus — it could even just be a word. The point is, the words he writes down are often fresh to him, but they also came up for a reason — something he’s dealing with, or something a friend is going through — and he’s able to use that idea as a target for that day’s sessions.

When I produce a track, chorus impact accentuators are always on my mind, especially at the final stage. And while I attempt to challenge myself by trying new methods every now and then, I do have some go-to accentuating techniques that I frequently rely on (and I’m not the only producer who does so). So here are some of the classics.
It is important to note that, while there was significant damage in San Juan, it’s not as severe as that of the municipalities on the west coast, many of which FEMA has declared disaster areas. But that does not make the hardships of Puerto Ricans living in other areas any less legitimate; a disaster of this scale brings immediate tragedies, but is also complex and far-reaching in its lasting complications.
In general, women should have about eight full glasses of water per day, and men should drink about ten. Though we like to use that as a basic rule of thumb, this doesn’t take into account the other factors that contribute to dehydration. Some of those things include temperature, air dryness, and the other things you’ve put into your body throughout the day like dehydrating beverages, foods, and medicines. Speaking of medicines…
For many artists, finding their ideal fan and learning to cultivate that relationship in a way that’s authentic can feel a little overwhelming. While there are many ways to do this, some of which we’ve outlined in past articles, today we wanted to explore a tool that has made fan growth a priority for the last decade or so via analytics and industry-wide insights — enter, Next Big Sound.
