Hip-Hop Belly Dancing Course – is an online belly dance class that has been gaining in popularity, but is it effective? Here’s a review of its pros and cons.

Mariella of Hip-Hop Belly Dancing Course offers over 50 videos (over 8 hours) of belly dance instruction and promises a fun, engaging and easy way to learn hip-hop belly dancing.

Judging from the content being offered, this course is relatively inexpensive compared to other belly dancing DVDs. But lets take a closer look at its pros and cons.

The Pros:

– Belly Dancing Course is one of the most comprehensive class on belly dancing I’ve seen. It includes 5 major routines taught by 3 different teachers. It covers almost every move, including advanced combinations and performances. As such it is great for both beginners and experts alike.

– One-on-One coaching is priceless. Mariella offers private individual coaching by skype and email. This is indeed invaluable for anyone starting in belly dancing and its the closest thing you can get as compared to a real live dance class.

– This high-caliber package has earned accolades for Mariella’s clear and supportive teaching style, her attention to solid technique, as well as for its exceptional production quality. It’s fun, easy to follow and “holds your hand” at every step of the way.

– You get the convenient option of watching online, downloading all the videos or getting the DVD edition.

– Also, Belly Dancing Course is the only online course I’ve ever see to offer a full money back guarantee. That means if you’re not completely satisfied with the course, you will get your money back. It makes this a risk-free to try it out.

The Cons:

– As with any dance class, the best learning environment is in a real class. However, Belly Dancing Course is the closest thing you can get if you don’t have the time or money to sign up for a class in your area. The one-on-one private coaching by Mariella really separates this from other similar online courses.

– It may be a little overwhelming at first due to the huge amount of content. However, all videos are organized by category so if you’re a beginner, you should start with the basics right at the top.

Here’s the bottom line:

Overall, there is no doubt that Belly Dancing Course is a very comprehensive and detailed online class that comes with a great amount of content and exceptional video production.

The private coaching by Mariella makes this course head and shoulders above any other similar course on belly dancing.

I highly recommend this course and if you’re looking to start belly dancing, this will be perfect companion to get started with.

Piano Practice Can Be Fun Too!…

By LilLonBeats on Aug 02, 2016 in Learn Piano , Piano Lessons , Piano Tutorials , Playing The Piano - Comments Off on Piano Practice Can Be Fun Too!…

Most people don’t really want to ‘learn’ to play the piano or ‘practice’ the piano, they just want to ‘play’ piano. ‘Play’ sounds like fun, ‘practice’ sounds like a chore. We get this image from childhood – some kid stuck indoors ‘practicing’ scales while all the other kids are outside the window ‘playing’.

So, first thing we need to do is to see our piano practice in a new light. See it as a way of accelerating the learning process so that SOON you’ll be able to ‘play’ piano and play it well. If you don’t practice and you just play old familiar tunes you move rather slowly. Yes, you’ll get better at playing those old familiar tunes but technically you won’t be pushing yourself to greater heights.

Proper, structured piano practice helps you stride forwards. I say ‘proper’ because a lot of people have an idea that practice IS just playing songs over and over. Practice needs to involve unchartered territory. The golden rule is – ‘practice what you CAN’T play, not what you CAN play’.

First of all, work out what you want to achieve. Do you just want to know all your chords without thinking about how they are formed – then work out a practice routine that leads to that goal. Maybe you want to learn about inversions or chord substitution – again, make the practice fit the goal.

Split your practice session into two halves. In the first half play the difficult stuff – your mind is sharper to begin with – then reward yourself with some enjoyable but reasonably difficult tunes. Make sure you are comfortable. Many a bad back has happened because of a bad piano stool at the wrong height. Make sure your piano is in tune. If you don’t have a good piano and are serious about learning GO BUY A GOOD ONE.
Every fifteen minutes stretch your arms and shoulders and roll your neck to combat stiffness. Check out some Yoga exercises for shoulders and back.

Follow the 3 times daily rule. Repetition in practice is ESSENTIAL. If you find something particularly difficult make sure you practice it at least 3 times every day. Don’t worry if it takes months to master – you’ll get there.
Don’t play for the neighbors. Practice piano at a time when you don’t care who is listening so that you can make lot’s of mistakes and play things over and over. Organize your piano music carefully – don’t keep it in a heap where you keep playing the ones on top. If you download sheet music put it in a folder. Have plenty of shelves near the piano. Be realistic – I truly believe that anyone can learn piano and learn it to an enjoyable level but no two people are alike – some are more ‘naturally’ gifted than others. If you have an average ability then it’s all down to practice. The more you practice the more you learn.

Now and then, practice with your eyes closed – or don’t look at the keys – this really sharpens you up. Organize your life so that practice is possible (this where Mindfulness comes in). Too many people think they don’t have time to practice when really they just haven’t found the time. How long should you practice – that’s up to what you want to achieve. You don’t have to be a concert pianist. Even if you just play for yourself just enjoy that. The archer who’s mind is on the prize cannot stay focused on the target. Accept the bad days when it seems like you can’t play a note. Sometimes it’s better to walk away. So remember that ‘playing’ piano and ‘practicing’ piano are different. Which do you do? Aim for a bit of both.

Music Distribution (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Mp3) and Music Selling Advice

By LilLonBeats on Oct 25, 2015 in Making Money With Music , Money Making Tip , Music , Music Producer Advice , Music Promo Advice , Songwriters Advice - Comments Off on Music Distribution (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Mp3) and Music Selling Advice

Sell Your Music

If you are a unsigned and indie artist and you are wondering how you can get your music on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Mp3, Google Play, Xbox Music and etc…

Click The Image Below: (To Sign Up To Sell Your Music)

Route Note Music Distribution

Below Is A Question That Most Unsigned and Indie Artist Ask:

“Should I Sell My Music or Give It Away For Free”

Here Is A Legit Reason As To Why You Should Sell Your Music As Oppose To Giving It Away For Free:

The Question?

It’s a question that so many songwriters,rappers, and producers that are just starting out will ask themselves: “Should I sell my music or give it away for free?” You may be thinking, why would you give it away?! If you want to make music your career, then you need to make music make you money! True. That is certainly the long-term goal of many songwriters. But is charging a buck per song from the very beginning always the best way to achieve this goal?

The Answer!

Most Artists post their songs as free downloads as opposed to foreign artists who make their songs available on commercial platforms like iTunes,Spotify, Amazon Mp3, Google Play, and more…

The problem of making your music available for free is that Your Music Will Have A Lower Perceived Value. Perceived value is what people think your product is worth. If something is widely available for free, people will naturally feel like it’s not worth as much as it’s easy to obtain. This is how a lot of people think about music right now. If however something is harder to obtain or it’s a higher price, people naturally think it’s of a better quality. Because of this, it’s sometimes possible to raise the price of your product and make more sales then if you set a lower price point. You of course, don’t want to charge so much that it’s not worth buying your music, but giving it all away for free will definitely make people perceive your music to have less value.

You’ll Lose Money. Making good quality music isn’t free. You have to pay to use the recording studio, for the cost of pressing up products, for marketing, promotion expenses, and for anything else that needs to be done. If you do all of this only to give your music out for free, you are losing out on money. And where does that money come from? My guess is your own pocket. You shouldn’t be paying to make other people happy, it should be a two way thing. You should benefit from people hearing your music, and you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for something in exchange for your songs.

You Will Lose Motivation. If you keep spending money on creating music that people don’t end up downloading, you will eventually lose motivation. If you lose motivation, what’s to keep you making music any more? We get into music for the love of it, but there are things along that way that have a musician giving up on the industry. If you don’t want to become one of these people, you will need to start seeing some tangible results ($$$). Giving out your music free of charge doesn’t often give tangible results, so it is not really worth you doing.

What You Should Be Doing Instead!

So, now we know you shouldn’t be giving your music out for free, what should you be doing instead? Well:

You should be selling it. You should have some songs available to download as part of an exchange process.

The selling your music part it pretty obvious. You should have your music on a shop page of your website where people can buy it in exchange for money.

The exchange process on the other hand is something quite different.

Instead of letting people download your music for nothing in return, you should only allow people to download some of your songs if they help you out in some way. This could be them giving you their contact details, or by them promoting your music in some way. This is a win win situation for everyone. They get to download your music and learn about you, and you get to keep in contact with them or have them promote you to all their friends.

Learn How To Stay Sharp At All Times By Cutting Your Own Hair

By LilLonBeats on Oct 25, 2015 in Cut Your Own Hair , Money Saving Tip , Save Money - Comments Off on Learn How To Stay Sharp At All Times By Cutting Your Own Hair

Cutting Your Own Hair

I know most of you who have visited my blog before and is new to my blog is wondering why i may be posting about “Cutting Your Own Hair” since my blog posts are primarily music related… If you haven’t noticed, looking your best at all times is one of the most important things when it comes to being an Entertainer or Musician in this matter… You never know when you may have to make an appearance in a video shoot, perform, take a photo with a fan, or even have your photo taking unexpectedly by a fan. Anyway, all I’m saying is you need to stay fresh at all times, and what better way to do that if you know how to cut your own hair. Just like myself, you know that the barbershop is not open all the times and is not fast enough for you at times.

Also, we all have had bad experiences at the barbershop, and our first response would be to find a new barber. What most people don’t know is many, like myself, have venture out into learning how to cut your own hair after such experiences. Learning to cut your own hair is very beneficial and it takes a lot of dedication for one to actually learn how to cut their own hair. It has been the sole mission of the Self Cut System to make it easier for “Self barbers” to cut with their revolutionary 3 way mirror.

Benefits of Cutting Your Own Hair:

#1 Cutting your own hair will save you a lot money.
 Getting your hair cut on a weekly basis can be expensive. On average, I used to spend about 80 dollar a month on haircuts plus tips. This is almost about 1,000 dollars a year that I could have spend on something else like my other bills and (maybe some new clothes and sneakers)

#2 You can avoid the hassle of the barbershop. Imagine not having to wait in long lines, listen to meaningless conversation, pay $20 a cut and cross your fingers in hopes that the barber got the cut correct. Well, you can avoid all of that by being able to cut your own hair. By cutting your own hair you can escape all of the barbershop

#3 Staying well groomed at all times. 
By cutting your own hair you don’t have any valid excuse of not looking your best at all time. The lady’s tend to be more attracted to men that take pride in their appearance. There have been times when I needed a cut for a last minute occasion and because of my self cut system skills I was able to attend the interview looking fresh as if I went to a barber.

#4 You are your own best barber
, from the very first time I cut my own hair. I did it with the intention to get the desire look that I wanted. Sometimes barbers can’t see your vision and that’s where being my own best barber comes into play. Occasionally I feel like rocking a Mohawk or sometimes I want a bald fade. I’m never scared to try new things with my hairstyle and if I mess-up I feel good that I didn’t pay someone 20 bucks to do so. I often get complemented on my hairstyles and people tend ask for my barber’s information and they’re usually surprised to know that I cut my own hair. “The sooner you start cutting your hair, the sooner you’ll start getting better at it. You will become a personal barber to the most important client you’ll ever have – yourself.
