Q It Up: Are you a musician applying your musical skills to radio production?
Are you a musician, or at least musically inclined or educated in music basics? How often do you use your musical skills in your work? What kinds of projects do you apply your musical skills most often to, and how do you do that specifically? If someone asked you what first steps they should take to become a musician or to learn how to apply music skills to production, what direction would you point them in? Basic piano lessons? College classes? Books you’ve read? Online resources you’re familiar with?
Welcome to the April 2014 R.A.P. CD featuring the 24th RAP Awards Best of the Rest Part 1 - Commercials! Small Market Commercials are on tracks 1-9, Medium Market Commercials on tracks 10-15, and Large Market Commercials are on tracks 16-21.
