The Young Musician’s University Launches a Virtual Music School for Students Ages 4-18

 The Young Musician’s University is “Reimagining Music Education” by launching the YMU Campus for students ages 4-18! The owners, husband and wife team Bevis and Tembi Gray, have successfully operated a brick-and-mortar music school since 2003. They have strategically taken the best practices of helping students excel in music education over the past 20 years, and transformed them into an online music education ecosystem where students can learn, explore, create, share and connect as a community of young musicians nationwide.

Since 2019, YMU has been progressively transitioning to reach students all over the country through the development of their new online platform. YMU’s specially designed platform uses powerful integrated software in a collaborative environment for all students.

“We are committed to providing students with a great musical foundation and an experience that will last them a lifetime,” said Mrs. Gray, YMU Director. In addition to offering instruction in piano, voice, guitar, and drums, YMU has expanded its online music program to offer percussion, strings, brass, and woodwind instruments. Through a strategic partnership with Music & Arts, students will be able to rent instruments directly through YMU. This will also include instrument rental repair if needed.

Mr. Gray, YMU Executive Director, said, “One of our goals was to make sure that YMU is both accessible and affordable for families without compromising the quality of our music program. We want students to have the opportunity to experience a high-quality virtual music education program, especially in rural areas where music lessons may not be as easily accessible.”

Mr. Gray then said, “We are talking with schools in several states about bringing YMU to their students as our staff expands to teachers across the nation. We have some very exciting opportunities brewing that will increase our ability to make an impact in the online music education and technology industry. We are so thrilled about YMU’s future, and we are open to strategic partnerships with community organizations and schools that align with our vision and mission of providing high-quality online music education to youth.”

“Online music lessons are a convenient option for homeschooling families as well,” said Mrs. Gray. “We wanted to create an online music program where students not only take music lessons but can explore music in various facets in a virtual collaborative community of like-minded musicians. So whether students explore YMU’s online music library, create music in our online recording studio, participate in a virtual field trip, or improve their musicianship through online music instruction, The Young Musician’s University is a virtual space where students thrive and discover their passion for music!”

New and Indie Musicians Have New Channel to Develop New Fans

Are you a new or developing musician or band looking to be discovered by new fans? A Canadian media company is looking to film you in 4K for a new Roku Channel. The channel will be available to over 20 million viewers worldwide and growing.

VANCOUVER, British ColumbiaSept. 12, 2021PRLog — As the online streaming trend continues to grow around the world, so do opportunities for small and indie musicians. ProPics Canada Media Ltd is launching a Roku Channel this fall which will feature original programming and one of these programs will feature new music.

Although ProPics Canada Media Ltd will start in western Canada in terms of the actual filming, interviewing and live recording of musicians and bands, they will accept video submissions from artists around the globe. For non local artists, they will conduct interviews via Zoom and other online options. For local ( Western Canadian) artists, ProPics Canada Media Ltd will visit the bands / musicians in person and record performances in clubs, outdoor events and even in their own homes while also conducting interviews prior to the performance(s). The sessions will be recorded in 4K / UHD with high quality sound and interesting interviews to invite new fans.

The musicians will also be able to link  the videos to their social media, websites and other online media distribution channels to share the performances and episodes. The episodes will not pay the artists for appearing but it will also not be profiting from the musicians either. As the channel gains viewership and turns to a monetised model down the road, it will then be able to help in moving the channel into a profit sharing model to help new musicians but for the foreseeable time, it is a way to gain new exposure for musicians and introduce new music to potential listeners.

Where the opportunities for musicians to profit in this project is that at the end of every episode, the viewers will be able to link directly to the features artists / bands website, social media etc to purchase downloads directly from the musicians or their current music distribution services, of which ProPics Canada Media Ltd has no involvement, investment or royalty shares. The musicians retain all control and ownership of the music performed. There is NO CHARGE to musicians to be featured in an episode and no charge for the ProPics Canada Media Ltd production what so ever.

At the end of the day, the channel gains more viewers and hopefully the artists gain more fans who in turn go to the musicians website and make purchases, profiting the musicians.

Musicians interested in being included in the productions and being featured on the channel launching this fall, can email their details and sample tracks to ProPics Canada Media Ltd Website
