List of free audio software


(virtual music) is a free application that allows the user to display sheet music and flip pages without removing the hands (or feet) from the instrument the music is performed on. It is very useful during concerts and practice sessions.  |  Music stands are usually able to accomodate at most a single book or 2-3 pages of loose leaf music at once. When performing a longer piece of music, the musician must often move one of the hands away from the instrument to turn the pages. This interupts the performance and breaks the flow of music especially when the page turn occurs during a musically demanding passage.  |  This software allows the user to create “songs” out of sheet music images obtained from a scanner, digital camera, or pdf, and “PlayLists” out of the “songs”. During a performance, the user can simply press a mouse button to move to the next / previous page or press various keyboard keys to advance the music.  |  USB foot switches are available which emulate mouse button presses thus freeing the hands to play the instrument. Even without a FootSwitch, using a laptop display avoids the problem of books that don’t stay open, or loose leaf pages that fly off the music stand when the wind (or HVAC unit) blows.

Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question…

Q: I’m 17 years old, and no matter what I write, it’s too simple and lacks depth. I wanted to know if there is a way to give sections a significance throughout the song, making the song unique in it’s own way. I’d really appreciate if you’d be able to help me, my frustration is at a certain point where I’m starting to lose confidence in my composing skills.
Michael – Berlin, Germany

A: As musicians we tend to think of our style of art as a language and just like any language, without structure, without clear intonation and meter, the communication of our musical ideas can sometimes suffer. Because music is both self-expression and communication, our listener should be able understand the musical flow of each section of our songs. So, what is a song section? Examples of this are; a verse, a chorus, the bridge, perhaps an intro. and usually some type of ending. Some songs have lyrics, others are instrumental. But, one thing is for sure, each part must be understood and accepted by both the musician and the audience. I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but songs that tell a story and have a catchy hook, will tend to connect extremely well with an audience. To create good structure we need a song writing road map. Unfortunately, as composers each of us needs to build our own song writing road map, but I can get you started with a few significant tips on this topic, watch the video to learn more!

In this video I briefly discuss the different modes of the major scale. I mention how the modes, when the tonics are based on the same note, can be interchanged while playing over the top of a drone. I also do some short improvisational leads that demonstrate the concept of using the different modes. improvisation
